RATING: ☆☆☆☆☆ 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆
REVIEWED BY: JERLEEN (GUEST REVIEWER)
West Ashby is the typical high school football player; manwhore that uses girls, super popular, and extremely handsome. But no one knows that his father is dying slowly right before his eyes. Maggie Carleton is the new girl in town, and the cousin of Brady Higgens, West’s best friend. Brady told everyone that Maggie couldn’t speak, and that she was off-limits. One night at the field part that was always held after a game, West runs into Maggie as he was leaving, and uses her as a distraction. He later on tells her everything about what’s going on with him because he knows she won’t tell anyone. He doesn’t expect it, but Maggie speaks to him. She tells him that her mother was murdered by her father in front of her two years ago, and tells him that she hasn’t spoken since then. They end up confiding in each other, and West uses her as a crutch to deal with his problems. Maggie falls in love with him, but she worries that all she will ever be is a crutch.
This book was heartbreakingly beautiful. It had a solemn mood overall, but there were some light moments. There were times when I wanted to cry because of what these characters had to go through. Although this is a YA book, it’s kind of in between YA and NA because of the swearing and sexual scenes, and other mature topics. The side characters all keep the story interesting, the only thing that made me scratch my head a little was that all the high school girls in this story are sluts expect for Maggie. Overall I enjoyed this emotional romance about loss and heartache, and recommend this to anyone looking for a story that’s in between YA and NA.

I love this book so much. Wes and Maggie story was very touching. These two connected so much deeper than sex. Their connection was deep and intense. Their love was so sweet and passionate, it’s hard to believe they were only in high school. Their understanding for each other was so open and honest, I couldn’t help but love them. Yes, Wes made some stupid decisions, but once he figured out what he really wanted and needed..he was nothing but sweet to Maggie. Maggie deserved the world and Wes fought hard to give it to her. Maggie was his world and she deserved everything good to come her way. Maggie was a strong heroine, very likable and smart. No wonder every guy wanted her, but she only had her eyes for Wes.
Wes friend’s are the best and I have grown very fond of Nash. I am hoping that the next story is about Nash, a nice boy who needs his own happy ending. Can’t wait for the next book in the series, Abbi Glines you got me.
