Human connection? Who needs it?
Ever since she can remember, wealthy but weary Saige Armstrong has felt different from her peers in Pechimu, New Jersey. With only one good friend to her name, she has navigated the complicated halls of high school and is now faced with the timeless question: Now what?
Fox Harrington, a fun-loving, socially charismatic graffiti artist uses his passions to color his world how he wants it. He knows exactly where his life is headed. That is, until he meets Saige.
A summer project links the two together, making a tentative friendship bloom into romance, but despite their affection for each other, fundamental beliefs and ways of thinking threaten to destroy all they have built.
"These moments in life are the best there are. They’re heavy with emotion, messy with the what-ifs, and frightening with the unknowns."
So, I really, really enjoyed this book! Saige is frustrating as hell, but I get her. We all have our flaws and Saige has some pretty big ones, but you can’t really blame her. She’s really a great character. It was fun to watch this romance build and develop, especially with all the complications and Saige’s reservations.
Both of these characters have their issues, and it was so much fun watching how they influenced and helped each other grow. They were both good and bad for each other but in a balanced way. I don’t believe either character could have stood on his or own. And what I mean by that is the characters complement each other in such a way that this book wouldn’t be what it is with a character change. Fox is the perfect foil to Saige, but their little flaws make up for the others’.
This is a great romance with just enough negativity and conflict to make it not too sickeningly sweet. I like some conflict! And the best part, everything is perfect at the end. I mean, in real life you can’t flip a switch and make everything hunky dorey, but sometimes love stories do that. This is the perfect example of a love story that doesn’t fake it. It’s not all wrapped up with a happily ever after. It’s real, and when you read it, you will totally get what I mean. So go pick it up today. I’ve made it really easy for you. Just click below.
