This book was highly recommended to me so I had really high expectations, but in all honestly it fell short I just couldn't love it like I wanted to.
Here's the blurb:
Recent graduate Becca Stine’s all to perfect and predictable life went spiraling out of control when her supposed childhood friend committed the ultimate betrayal. Following college, Becca attempts to bury the pain by retreating into a dangerous lifestyle with her best friend, Jamie Rae. She decides it’s time to grow up after being irresponsible, broken, and out of control. To Becca’s horror, her only option is to return to her hometown of Grand Rapids. Worried she will forever live in the shadow of her prominent family’s notability, Becca decides moving is her only opportunity to get her feet back on the ground. With her best friend in tow, Becca reluctantly heads home to attempt to live her ideal life.
Little does Becca know the owner of the architecture firm she lands a job with has an intriguingly mysterious son. Tyler Conklin is infatuated with Becca, yet is apprehensive about a public relationship because of his hidden baggage. Not wanting anyone to know about his slight obsession with her, their potential relationship must be kept a secret. Will Becca put up with Tyler’s untold story for long? Will she tolerate being his secret?
I could really sympathize with Becca and her insecurities, she just let everyone walk all over her. Tyler was like a boy trapped in a man's body, he had so many positive qualities but they really didn't shine through until over half way through the book. I wanted to feel their chemistry more and I did, towards the end which I loved fist pump for Becca! Anyways, all in all a good read and I'll read the next one but I'm not jumping into it right away.
This is the authors debut novel.
