Layken’s father died suddenly, leaving her to gather every ounce of strength to be a pillar for her family, in order to prevent their world from falling apart. Now her life is taking another unexpected turn…
Layken’s mother gets a job which leads to an unwanted move across country. However, a new home means new neighbours… and Layken’s new neighbour is the very attractive Will Cooper.
Will has an intriguing passion for slam poetry, and a matching passion for life. The two feel an irresistible attraction but are rocked to the core when a shocking revelation brings their romance to a screeching halt.
Layken and Will must find a way to fight the forces that threaten to tear them apart… or learn to live without each other.
It’s the second book by Colleen Hoover and it’s another amazing book by her. I really like her writing style, you turn one page and just can’t stop turning the pages until you have read it all.
Layken moves from Texas to Michigan with her mother and a younger brother. Layken has recently lost her dad and they are all trying to deal with his loss. Right after the moment they arrive Layken meets a handsome neighbor boy Will, with whom they feel instant interest in each other and they go on a date, which goes well, until it all takes a different turn when they meet the next day.
The book is filled with emotions and it doesn’t leave you indifferent. I also can’t leave out the poems, they worked so well in the book, I especially loved the poems that Will and Layken wrote to each other. It was a great book and I can’t wait to continue with the series.
