Release Date: May 4, 2013
Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbeques, and bonfires. When her mom insists she needs a summer job, and her boyfriend spends more time with his band than with her, Jillian’s plans go down the drain.
Grant had a plan: finish his Masters, get a great job at Google, and get the hell out of Georgia. He might be giving up some of the fun of his youth, but he knows his all work and no play method would be worth it when his dreams came true.
But things never go according to plan.
When temptation brings them together and tragedy tears them apart, Jillian and Grant will be forced to choose: fight for their dreams, or fight for each other.
This book was awesome!! It had a slow start but then all of a sudden all these things made my emotions go like crazy. In all of the New Adult books I have read this is definitely a book to pick up! I loved everything about the book, including Grant who is sexy, and is super smart. The storyline was good because the book was addicting and need more! Sarah M. Ross is one author to look out for in this new adult world, her novel will blow you away!! The different Point of Views where great, and seeing them through both Jillian and Grants were another things I liked.
Jillian is our main character who I thought was smart, is studying to become a translator for languages and work for the UN in the future. On summer vacation, her mom got her a job at a telephone service. There she meets Grant who is the IT guy. He is definitely a great guy all around with a good personality. The more Jillian gets to know Grant the more she wants to know him, and she tries to ignore her feelings but the more the book went on, the attraction was beginning to develop. Jillian's boyfriend Christian is a douche who is showing that he cares more about himself and as their relationships starts to grow further and further apart. Grant made her feel wanted and understood.
I did not like Christian from the beginning and while he did show up every so often, he was not safe to be around, and Jillian does make the right decision in the end about him. When Jillian's grandmother was in the hospital, Grant was with her the entire time, and during this period a change is going on with Jillian to choose who she wants to be with.
This is definitely a book that must be read for those who love New Adult novels, and Sarah did just that. She really made me feel the sadness when it happen, the shock, and love. It will keep you in a transition of continuing to read more of it. I did laugh at lots of the parts. Looking for a great read, this is the one for you!
