To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.
Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.
As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.
West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…
I am a HUGE Abbi Glines fan and when I heard about this book I knew that I just had to have it. It was definitely a must read for me. Of course Abbie did not let me down.
This is an unforgettable story. Two strangers who come together under not so great circumstances. Tragedy is what brings them together. An undeniable attraction keeps them from being able to stay away from each other.
West and Maggie couldn't be more perfect for each other. Even though Maggie is mute, her and West communicate just fine. She understands his pain in a way that no one else can. Sometimes words are just not needed. Tragedy and despair bring this couple together but are they just each other's crutch when times are rough? Or can this relationship really last?
If there is one thing that you can bet on when it comes to Abbi's work is that she will not disappoint. She is one of those rare authors that I read that no matter what she puts out I am never disappointed. Its even come to a point where I don't even need to know what the book is about but I will buy it just because she wrote it and I know it will be good. Of course this was no exception. There is just something so raw and honest to her writing, You truly feel like you are there with the character's. You feel like you are apart of these character's lives. She is an author who makes you feel extremely invested in the worlds that she creates and it is so hard to let those go.
Of course Abbie Gaines hits it out of the park with another fantastic set of characters and I cannot wait to continue the journey.
