Because you make me feel alive.

Because you say my name like it’s a lifeline.

Because you promise me things without uttering a single word.

Charlotte Novak is drowning. School, her internship, and trips to the hospital are beginning to be too much. A night out is meant to erase her worries, but a chance encounter with the cocky bartender complicates everything.

Duke Anderson came to college to escape his father’s name and play the field, but one look at Charlotte at the end of the bar and he knows once with her will never be enough. She’s confidently quiet, beautiful, and off limits.

Duke is the last person she expects to breath like back into her.

Charlotte is the last person he should be falling for.

With secrets kept and unforgiving attraction, who’s to blame when they fall in love?

I liked this book, I just wont be calling it my favorite anytime soon.

Charlotte was going through a lot. Her boyfriend was in a coma at the hospital, she still had school and her internship. She wasn’t really living, she was just existing. She was exhauseted. She wanted to please everyone around her even if it meant she wasn’t being true to herself.

quotation-marks-leftWhen the Matthews look at me, they see perfection, a girl worthy of their precious son. What if sometimes I don’t want to be that girl? Being worthy of someone isn’t the problem. It’s the flawless version they see through rose tinted glases that haunt me.

I liked Charlotte as a main character. It felt like she was carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and you just want to jump through the pages and help her out.  I liked that she didn’t just give into the tension between her and Duke right away and MAN was there tension between them!

quotation-marks-leftBeing with Duke, connected to him, would be like driving down the highway in the wrong direction. It’s exhilarating, sure, but you take the risk at a crash and burn.

Duke was great, he really wanted to do the right thing by Charlotte and Jacob. He struggled with his feelings for Charlotte and him thinking that he wasn’t good enough for  her. I enjoyed seeing his character grow in this book.

There was a bit of mystery in this book. You know things are not what they seem and that there are secrets but can’t put your finger on it. The author does a great job at keeping you on your toes.

The reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars was because when the secrets and plot twists started coming out I was so freakin’ let down. Everything could have been done so differently.

All in all, it was good book. There was forbidden romance, mystery, and great characters.

About the author

Lindsey Iler is the author of the Our Worlds series. She’s had her feet planted in the state of Michigan since she was born and she still lives there with her husband and three kids. When she’s not writing (which should be all the time, so if she’s not you have permission to yell at her), she’s spending time with family and friends, listening to music, reading (obviously!), and hopefully just enjoying every moment in life. She has a twisted sense of humor, tends to speak honestly, and her mind tends to feel most comfortable in the gutter. Lindsey writes mature young adult/new adult contemporary romance. She falls in love with every character that pops into her head and is notorious for writing long chapters in her notes on her iPhone (It is sort embarrassing how many started/unfinished projects are on that thing). She finds inspiration from music and the people around her.
