Andrew Harper grew up in a house marked by tragedy. His older brother, Owen, did his best to shelter him, but you can only be protected from life's pain for so long. Eventually, you end up just feeling numb...and isolated.
Loneliness was the one constant in Andrew's life. Until one girl, met by chance in a high school hallway, changed everything. Emma Burke was a mystery and all that was beautiful in this world - the only air Andrew ever wanted to breathe. She took the lonely away, filling it with hope and color, and Andrew would do anything to keep her safe, happy, and whole.
But sometimes, what feels good and right is what ends up hurting us the most. When Andrew and Emma are faced with an impossible decision, Andrew is tested to see just how far he's willing to go for the girl who owns his heart.
Cuts are deep.
Scars are left behind.
And revenge beckons.
When Andrew finally gets his chance, in college, five years after his first love broke him completely, he finds out old feelings don't really disappear just because you say you hate someone. The more he tries to avenge all that he believes he lost, the more he uncovers the real story of what happened years before.
Love is wicked. But a restless heart is never satisfied beating on its own. Can Andrew and Emma make it right before it's too late, or will the ties that bind them now destroy their only chance at a future?

New Female Narrator.
I loved the story but found the female narrator very difficult to listen to. She sounded robotic and completed the sentences very strangely. This was very distracting from the overall story when experiencing it via Audible.
Story wasn't bad, in fact it was a good idea, but Emma was completely unlikable for me. In my opinion the only way this book would have been worth the read would to have had it just in Andrew's POV. Either that or Emma's character would need to be completely different.
"sweet story with some twists. i didn't particularly care for the female narrator, but overall a good story."
Overall I really enjoyed this book. There was a sweet romance and a few surprises. Liked the male narrator but not the female, she was monotone during most of the book.
