Just like the synopsis says, this book will leave you breathless, entranced and remembering your own first love. It definitely left me breathless. Some parts of the book I would gasp and smack my hand over my mouth because it was either unexpected or a shocking part of the story.

This story was so moving and emotional and it got intense real fast. I mean it was half way through the book when it became intense but when it did I was like “woah, where did that come from” but it all played out so beautifully. Also the way the title of the book is worked into the story is amazing. Colleen Hoover has a way with her words. This is only my second Hoover book but they both are so good they are in my top favourites!

The characters in this book are great. Sky is a naive girl going into her first year of public high school for senior year. Being home-schooled all her life and living without technology in the house makes for an interesting first year of school. She doesn’t take shit from no one, but she’s nice and she’s funny too. Dean Holder is a good looking guy with a bad reputation. He has many sides to him but the sides that Sky sees the most is funny, nice, caring, loving and a hard-ass when he has to be. They make a great couple with good chemistry. I really liked these two characters together. The side characters like Six and Breckin are awesome. They are both Sky’s friends and they are both funny with great personalities.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone. This story will leave you with lots of feels and ready to read Losing Hope, which is Holder’s side of the story.

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
