One night changed my life forever. Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't. I haven’t told anyone. I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.
"Most emotional and touching book"
My life has always been safe. I like it that way. I grew up in a fake society where plastic hearts rule. If our hearts are made of plastic, they can never be broken. My parents have expectations and I do everything I can to meet them, even if it means giving up on my own dreams. Now, all I want is to be free to make my own choices. Dane Wright is everything I have been warned to stay away from. We met one night while I was with my perfect, parent-approved boyfriend and I haven’t stopped thinking about him.
"This was not bad, just okay for me."
I had my whole life mapped out. Perfect guy. Perfect friends. Everything was exactly the way I wanted it. That was until that night the one I can’t remember. It’s all my fault, and now the memories are all I have left of him. Of us. My guilt drowns me until Sam Shea steps back into my life and helps me to the surface. He slowly opens my heart and crawls deep inside before I even realize what’s happening. I know I don’t deserve him.
I’ve always let my past dictate my future, letting it paint a picture of exactly what I don’t want to be. Where I don’t want to end up. Drake Chambers is as arrogant as I am stubborn. A college quarterback, a national star. I thought he was just another one of those guys…the type every girl should stay away from, but he’s carrying more than the weight of the football team on his shoulders. He unravels the feelings and beliefs I’ve held on to for so long. I thought we had it all figured out.
Dane and Alex’s relationship has never been easy, but now they have a fresh start without the pressures of Alex’s family. Together they try to move forward while continuing to struggle with a past that they can’t seem to escape. Sometimes no matter how hard we try to make things work, love isn’t enough. Sometimes even after a broken heart is mended, cracks remain, and the same doubts and insecurities that once yanked us apart seep in. Can true love hold Dane and Alex together or will their hearts completely shatter like glass?
