Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong…
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.
There is so much I want to say about this book, but I have to be careful, if I say too much, I will giveaway something that I don’t want to. Let me first say that this is a YA book. I was a little thrown off because it wasn’t what I was used to expecting from Vi Keeland, however, I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit of an emotional ride. But it was worth it!
Zack was probably not my idea of a typical guy in a book like this, but he was genuine and that is what I loved the most about him. He had a good life, he had a good family and he fell in love with the little girl on that bike when he was so young. When everything changed between him and that little girl You really do fee an entire gamut of emotions with Zack. But he had the best heart and he was true to who he was. I fell in love with this character. He wasn’t over the top or what you expect to find in a YA book. I loved that about his character.
I adored the heck out of Nikki. She had to deal with so much growing up and after her mother dies, she finds out there is so much she didn’t know about her life. Torn between being thrown back into foster care or moving to California to live with the aunt that she didn’t know existed, Nikki has a lot of tough decisions to make, but there is one thing she finds out after her mother’s death that she is determined to find. She is such a strong character and I truly admired everything she has been through.
Together Zack and Nikki have a very special bond and it is touching and heartwarming. I just adore them together. It is what all young loves should be made of.
There is not much more I can tell you about the book because there is so much I don’t want to ruin. It is beautiful, heartbreaking and heartwarming. I expected something completely different and perhaps that is the reason I adored it so much. The writing, the story and the characters all just touched my heart and I was sad when I hit the end of the book. I wanted more of this story and I was sad to see it end.
Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott have written a fabulous book and I truly enjoyed it! Well written, well told and playing on every emotion there is. This book is amazing!
He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in. Slowly. They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders. Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts. I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well. Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage. Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine. And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun. Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer. Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get. Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught. A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little. But not Zack. Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin. “You look incredible.” He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn’t change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four. She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law. With a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of “argument” could actually be her job. A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn’t ready to give up the law. Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach. She is co-author Vi Keeland’s biggest fan.
