So before I jump into the review I want to start by saying that this book is for sure meant for mature audiences! I didn’t really expect the sexual content when I bought it but it honestly does help develop the story. I’m not usually one to buy books that are so detailed and explicit in that area.

The book starts out following our main character Tessa. She a freshmen at WCU and is moving into the dorms for the first time. Her new roommate Steph has already earned Tessa’s strict mother’s and her boyfriend Noah’s disapproval due to her goth looks. As the story progresses Tessa dives head first into Steph’s world and meets Hardin. Being the closed of ladies man that he is and Tessa being the goody that she is the two do not get along at all. Their dislike for each other quickly turns to love however. As she deals with her inner battle of whether to stay with Noah or take a leap of faith to Hardin Noah soon discovers the affair Tessa has been having. Their relationship becomes a constant back and forth fighting and making up. While Tessa is eager for Hardin to tell their friends that they are indeed and item Hardin keeps pushing the idea away and keeps referring to Tessa as his “friend”. As their back and forth relationship continues Tessa’s mother soon learns of their relationship and threatens to cut Tessa off and quit paying for her school. Due to this threat Tessa and Hardin move in together and get an apartment. *note they have only known of each other for 2 months* After this point the story goes on a whirl wind and leaves you with information that blows your mind!!

My summary was kinda long but their is literally so much information that I wanted to give you all but it would take so long so I for sure left out points in the book that make it amazing. Honestly at first I got tired of the back and forth between Hardin and Tessa but soon grew to root for their relationship. Maybe I have a soft spot for broken bad boys?? I finished this book in 2 days I loved it so much. They’re was so much happening within it that I knew that there was going to be a major something to happen near the end I was dying to get there. Overall it’s a definite recommended read from me but as I said in the beginning this is definitely for mature audiences due to the sexual content. I have ordered the second book and I’m dying to dive into it!

Not gonna lie I hadn’t heard of this book until I saw the movie trailer on Facebook. I don’t know if anyone else is like me but I always love to read the book before I watch the movie. The book starts out from the point of view of Stella who had been battling Cystic Fibrosis since she was really young. During her latest trip to the hospital she sees her usual hospital friends nurse Barb and her friend Poe. Soon into her stay she notices a new CF patient, Will. Over the course of her stay the grow closer and soon start to fall in love. This story takes many many twist and turns and let me tell you don’t plan on finishing it with dry eyes.

Overall this book was amazing. You get to see the story take place from both Will and Stella’s point of view. The story really brings you in and makes you care for the characters. The story line is amazing and flows well. You get to really know the characters not only the main ones but the supporting characters as well.
