He’s the boy next door.
He’s the first crush I ever had.
He was my first kiss.
He’s also the only person who has ever broken my heart.
We were best friends, and then suddenly…we weren’t.
I tried to run away from it. I even changed schools just to make the hurt disappear.
But no matter how hard I tried to not think about Lucas, I just couldn’t stay away from the high school quarterback with perfect blue eyes and so many secrets.
I’m back. We’re seniors now. We’ve grown—all of us. And Lucas Fuller might be different, but I’m different too. This is my time to take risks, to experience life and to fall in love for real.
I want Lucas Fuller to be a part of my story, but I know for that to happen, I need to know the truth about our past.
I don’t even know where to begin with this one. This was an enemies to lovers/second chance romance. This was full of drama and such a struggle to get through. Seriously are all of this authors stories this dramatic?
The main character June made me quite irritated. I get that she and Logan were friends quite a while ago and she loved him. However, I kept wondering how many times she was going to let him treat her like trash. Quite a lot sadly. I wanted her to realize that she deserved better. Especially to be treated better!
While I can understand the reason that Lucas stopped talking to June, he could have gone about it a different way. TBH, he could have gone about everything differently. He was mean, rude, and done some pretty messed up stuff. I couldn’t see his appeal or what made him special enough for June to keep coming back.
It’s hard to talk about the romance between June and Lucas. Mainly because it really wasn’t too great. I never felt the chemistry between them. It was like I was supposed to ship them together because the author told me to. But if I’m being honest, I think she would be a better fit with Tory. *shrugs*
While I’m on a roll, why was there so much girl hate here?! The judgy comments and over the top actions were really too much.
As you can see, I had so many issues with this book. It took a lot for me to not DNF it and I don’t recommend it. There are better books out there.
