Summary

He’s the popular jock everyone loves. Funny, gorgeous, and a flock of girls to choose from. But she’s the bullied and antisocial girl no one notices. She has no friends and she likes it that way - until he walks into her life. 

They shouldn’t be friends, they definitely shouldn’t be roommates, but that doesn’t stop him though. When friendship blooms into something more, she’s not sure if she should hold on or let go. She’s hiding things, secrets so dark, and deep. If he ever discovers them she is certain he won’t want her anymore. 

But as she falls harder and harder for him, she starts to wonder if maybe she judged him too soon. The popular jock and the girl that no one notices can’t possibly have a happily ever after it, can they?

Rightly Titled....

This story has a serious, realistic story line and could cause triggers for some. Emerson has a secret that has made her socially inept to deal with people, she is timid and basically scared of her own shadow, that is until Clark. He is the Jock and the most unlikely person that would gravitate to Emerson but he does, he helps her, protects her and falls in love with her. Narration is from two of my favorite narrators.

Clark: A Swoon-Worthy Hero

After reading the first two books, it was nice to have a story in which the male hero isn’t cruel to his love interest. In fact, he was more like a knight in shining armor. From the very first moment we are introduced to Emerson, we see a side of Clark that is completely different in how he was portrayed in the previous book.

Emerson has been through sexual abuse and suffers with anxiety attacks. Clark is her calm. He is still the same Clark as before, the only difference is that he falls in love with one girl. He’s gentle and patient towards Emerson and would do anything to keep her safe.

The narrators were excellent!

A bit too slow for me...

it's a story about a woman who has endured a bit too much abuse and trauma.... having a hard time coming out of her shell and overcoming her fears.

The narration is perfect. Makes the story much more enjoyable.

Overall, it's an okay story.

Best one...

This is the best story in this series. Clarke is the knight in shining armour for sure, Emerson is a good match for him.

So far the Best of the Series!

Out of all the North Woods books this would have to be my favorite and Clarke is just an amazing Book Boyfriend. Emerson’s past is so tragic (Warning: Adult Theme) and Clarke is her saving grace, her Knight. The Secret story line was captivating, and the narration just made it so worth the wait, I’ll listen to anything with Teddy. My only gripe is the Authors really need to change up their descriptive language, much of it is the same throughout all 3 books. I will finish out the series only because I’m already 3 books invested.
