Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us, Colleen Hoover’s romantic, emotion-packed debut novel unforgettably captures all the magic and confusion of first love, as two young people forge an unlikely bond before discovering that fate has other plans for them.

Following the unexpected death of her father, eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for both her mother and younger brother. She appears resilient and tenacious, but inside, she's losing hope. Then she meets her new neighbor Will, a handsome twenty-one-year-old whose mere presence leaves her flustered and whose passion for poetry slams thrills her.

Not long after a heart-stopping first date during which each recognizes something profound and familiar in the other, they are slammed to the core when a shocking discovery brings their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together and the forces that tear them apart. Only through the poetry they share are they able to speak the truth that is in their hearts and imagine a future where love is cause for celebration, not regret.

As always a great story line

I quickly became a fan of this author a couple years ago and have yet to dislike one of her books. This one wasn’t my favorite but definitely kept me interested and I didn’t put it down. Ms Hoover still has my heart.

Another good story from CH

I’ve read nearly every book from Colleen Hoover and can proudly say I’ve enjoyed most of all her books. This book took on a different perspective than others by involving a teacher student romance and I’ve read my fair share of smutty teacher student novels but this one was completely different than any others I’ve read and from what I was expecting. I’ve already started the second book in this series ready for more.

Teen drama

This is the first Colleen Hoover book I couldn’t finish. Teenage romance isn’t my forte

Not one of my favorites

Not one of my favorites from this author (and I have read many), kind of boring.

Not my favorite.

Not her best work but good enough. I’d recommend to a friend especially YA readers.
