So wrong for each other…and yet so right.
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth.
But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can PUSH THE LIMITS and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her HOW TO LOVE AGAIN.
Not many people know exactly what happened to Echo that caused her to miss the last month of the previous school year and then return her senior year a completely different girl. The few who do don’t even include Echo herself and she wants to find out why.
Noah’s parents died a few years back and an altercation with his first foster father came back to bite him by allowing him only limited, supervised interaction with his two younger brothers.
Brought together by a twist of fate(and a slightly unorthodox therapist)they begin hatching schemes to get into their files that have the answers the both seek. Echo’s tells what happened that night and Noah’s holds information on his brothers’ foster parents which he hopes to use when he graduates to help him gain custody of his brothers. Will Echo find out what happened and will Noah gain custody? I’d tell you but then you wouldn’t have any reason to read this amazing book!
Every part of this book feels real, you really get into Echo and Noah’s heads and understand the way they think. I’m usually on the edge about whether or not I’ll enjoy a book that has alternating points of view but this one couldn’t have been more perfect. I especially enjoyed it being set in my own state of Kentucky. I honestly cannot wait for the next book to come out, which focuses on Beth, who’s a character I enjoyed so much and would love to see inside her head. From what I could tell it seems like she’d make for an interesting read.
All in all Katie McGarry really knows the ingredients to spin a real piece of art. I see many of her future novels on my bookshelves.
