Goodreads Synopsis:
Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels there’s something missing.

Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life.

Ayden has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted by the Gregorys, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott.

As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden's past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested.

My Thoughts:

This book was so entertaining and unbelievably enthralling that I was hooked from the first page to the last. The character's are fantastic and it is extremely easy to get sucked into this book and forget about the world around you. This is one of the first self-published books that I have read where it felt like a traditionally published book. Most self-pub books have that air of being self-pub'd but I did not get that feeling with this book.

Lyric is a fantastic character who has the ability to make you laugh out loud and crack a smile while reading. She is unique and confident and is one of those character's who I would love to be friends with if they were real. She has captured Ayden's attention and is slowly bringing him out of his shell. But will this friendship lead to something more or will she be forever destined to be stuck in the friend zone?

Ayden has had a horrid past, most of which he can't remember. When he move's in with the Gregory's he truly believes this is just a pit stop on the ride through the foster system. He wasn't prepared for the family to genuinely love him or for him to start loving them back. Lyric is a forced to be reckoned with. For a boy who wants nothing more than to stay in his own world and drift through life, Lyric refuses to let that happen.

Lyric and Ayden are so different that the combination just works. I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to continue the series.
