A fantastic read
4 January 2018
This is the story of Aly Stanton and Emmett Hoult.
These two have known each other since birth and went to the same schools right up until junior year in high school. Aly’s view of how those years went down are the complete opposite of how Emmett sees them.
In her eyes, she was emotionally tortured and bullied by him, but in Emmett’s version of events he only teased her, and at weekends, they were best of friends.
Aly’s problems, growing up and as an adult stemmed from more than one outlet. It was heartbreaking to see her treated so callously by the one person she should have had unconditional love from.
Aly hasn’t seen Emmett for 12 years, she missed a lot of his life, not all of it good or nice when she cut him out of her life after a major incident in junior year. One she swore never to forgive him for.
When a fire destroys her apartment and she need somewhere to live for the summer, she is offered Emmett’s summerhome in the Hampton’s where her new restaurant is located. She agrees when she hears Emmett is away for the whole summer. Or so everyone thinks.
Things get complicated when one night she goes home with a guy she met at a nightclub and they roll up to his home ... the home she’s staying in for the summer. Imagine her surprise to find out that the hot guy she thought she was hooking up with was Emmett.
I loved the interaction between this couple. There are miscommunications, some super hot steamy scenes and of course one last secret that threatens to come between them.
I loved the secondary characters of Drew (he’s Emmett’s mate and a pretty terrible wingman but he’s hilariously fun) and Aly’s bestie Evie who despite her own life going sideways always gives the best advice!
This is one book I couldn’t put down!
