Can you imagine sitting down with a brand-new best-selling novel from a mysterious debut author and realizing from the first page… this story is your story? And the only person that knows it besides you is your best friend, your first love… the one you haven’t seen in over ten years. And he’s not only sharing your painful past with the world – he’s telling it from your point of view. That’s exactly what’s happened to Emiline, and she knows without a doubt that author J. Colby can only be Jase. Facing Jase will be the hardest thing she’s done in years, but a local book signing with none other than “J. Colby” himself may be the only way to get the answers she needs.
I love that we get a book within a book. It’s such a clever way to tell Jase and Em’s story – to blend past with present so flawlessly. The adversities these two faced growing up broke my heart, but there were some wonderful and tender moments along the way that were absolutely beautiful. I read this book in one sitting; and because it’s been months since I’ve read this genre, I thought it would be difficult to switch gears. But my favorite thing about this author is that no matter how different the story is from my current genre obsession, she captivates me from the first page and doesn’t let me go until the last.
A huge thank-you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
