about

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Kami Garcia comes a red-hot romance that will break your heart and put it back together again.

Her heart has to break before it can open.

When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend's dark secret, she confronts him-and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton's knee-and maybe her dream of going pro-is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.

He has to let someone in before it's too late.

With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind-until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.

But Peyton doesn't trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heart Breaking and Heart Warming This book was heavy. Heavy, in that it was over 400 pages, but heavier than what one would expect from contemporary YA romance. It is more than the fluff and mush I was expecting. It had it’s own fire and the feels come from beyond shipping the ship. It was soft and hardcore all wrapped in one. Peyton was most definitely not perfect, but I loved her. That doesn’t mean I was not frustrated at times (many times) with her. In the beginning of the book, her dream of becoming the super-star soccer player is put at risk by a horrible “accident,” taking her on a journey of self-discovery, self-destruction and rebuilding the strength to go on. She was stubborn yet passionate and I really enjoyed her perspective. There were so many cute moments! The swoons, the feels, the declarations of passion and the smooch factor were spot on. Needless to say, Garcia really did do an amazing job with the romance. It’s not exactly the slowest of slow burns, but Peyton plays a good game of “just friends.” Maybe, it is a little insta-lovey, the book does span over a month, but it didn’t feel like it. This had a lot of deeper themes that Garcia explores. Coping with getting out of bad relationships, the effects of abuse and grief are really important in this novel. This book has a lot to do with managing–or rather–finding a way to manage grief, being able to open up about things your scared of remembering and finding courage to speak and reach out. Kami Garcia made me feel the pain the character was going through and I’d say that is a success on every level. The few things that I found wrong with this book is that the pace could drag a bit and it had its share of tropes that didn't really need to be in the story. Overall, I enjoyed myself immensely. This is more than fluff, it’s a story that relates to many experiences of many people, including Kami Garcia herself. I beseech you to read the Author’s Note at the end, it’s incredibly important. *ARC provided by Raincoast Books*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Novel Once again, I have come across a novel that has me suffering the consequences today of staying up past midnight as I needed to finish reading the book before I went to sleep. I could not (and would not) put it down and this book was read in essentially one sitting (maybe two). This novel was complicated, emotional, all consuming, and beautiful. It really was a page turner from the very first page. It encompasses all the emotions and struggles that teenagers can face in high school whether it be the pressures from a peer group, different relationships and the high school "hierarchy". It also incorporates and addresses difficult and complex topics regarding manipulation, physical/emotional/verbal abuse, and parental death. That is only mentioning the surface of some of the difficult situations because overall, there is really a lot of heavy and complex content. I loved each of the characters in this novel whether it be the main character of Peyton, the selfless and loyal Twins, the strong and misunderstood Owen, along with Tucker and Grace. I became so invested in each character's story along with each relationship that developed whether it be platonic or romantic. The writing in this novel just flowed and in no matter of time, I was flying through. I could picture everything within my mind and felt that it was unfolding before my eyes. There was no difficulty or push to read because I could not put this novel down. Even once I was finished, I sat there emotional because all of the thoughts and feelings this novel brought out. Although there is such complex content, the novel felt real, it felt raw. I could see how this could be similar to many people's high school experience and that truly is terrifying. This novel blew away any and all expectations that I had before picking it up. The cover is beautiful but the novel's depth is way more than that. This is my first read written by Kami Garcia and I cannot wait to read more. I know I will be recommending this book to many and I will go out on a limb and say this will have been one of the best reads that I will read in 2018. **Thank you to Raincoast Books for supplying me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review**
