I’m not coping with sad books lately, Sister-Sister by Rachel Zadock broke my heart into tiny pieces and left my chest achey FOR DAYS. So this will be the first in a lot of super fluffy YA that I’ll be reading over the next few weeks. No tragedies for me, only happy-endings guaranteed for a while. Drama is overrated. As is crying on the train.
When Hanley discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out – if not call the police. But there’s something about Nate that makes her keep his secret. While she’s running from her own tragedy through wild parties and alcohol, it’s clear that Nate is hiding from his own dark secrets. Soon, she knows she’s falling in love with him – and even when she finds out he’s a fugitive, she just can’t give him up.
Damaged people finding love and redemption? Sign me up, Scotty! The mystery behind each of the secrets was well played and not overly drawn out. The chemistry between Hanley and Nate was palpable, and even though if I found a hottie living in my garage I’d totally call the police, I was able to suspend my disbelief.
A sweet read with a touch or two of drama, pick it up if you want a love story that will make you want to have your first kiss all over again.
