All Andi Parker has ever wanted, all she’s ever dreamed of, is a spot on the Olympic track team. But when an accident leaves her hospitalized with serious injuries and shattered dreams, she’s not only uncertain what her future holds but also completely alone.
Drew Slater is a wanted man. Professional football teams want him for his arm. Women want him for his good looks and magnetic personality. But the well-crafted disguise he wears, the one that helps him score on and off the field, hides secrets. Conceals lies. Threatens the happiness of everyone around him.
One chance encounter brings Andi and Drew together, changing their worlds in ways they never thought possible. Unfortunately, what they thought they knew about themselves—and about each other—might just be the biggest lie of all.
My Review (copy provided)
Andi-my heart ached for her, my stomach twisted and I just wanted it all to be a dream. Our sweet, driven heroine lost her dream. Her parents are doing their own thing and she is all alone. How will she handle losing everything she worked so hard for?
Drew-my thoughts were confused, I didn't know what to think. I loved him and his funny, cockiness that brought Andi back. He was our hero that didn't want the dream. Andi helped him see the light. But what if it wasn't real? What if everything we see is all in our mind?
Andi and Drew have a love hate relationship and they can't stay away from each other but are constantly angering one another. He is rude and unapproachable. Drew has secrets and Andi wants to know what he's hiding. Andi's seen first hand how his parents are. She's already seen one of his "groupies" but she knows there is more to him.
I love that Drew wasn't the typical bad boy. He was portrayed as one but when you really got to know him he really wasn't. He knew what he wanted and went after it. I also like how there wasn't the whole jealousy thing with other girls or a confusion/miscommunication that caused a huge break up or anything. It's nice to read a book that doesn't have the cliche bad boy and typical doubty heroine. The author took us almost to the end before we really found out the truth and I like how it was done. I also really liked how the book kept me guessing about their initial encounter and still left me wondering. I like that it's not spelled out for you and lets you kind of use your imagination as to what it could have been.
The thing that got me upset was Andi's parents...I just kept wondering why they wouldn't come back after learning what had happened to their daughter, but show up for her graduation? The accident would have been more important in my mind to get on a plane then a graduation. That was the only issue I had.
This was a great book with a little different twist. I recommend!
