Blurb:
Bethโ€™s life hasnโ€™t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, sheโ€™s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesnโ€™t know how big her secret really isโ€ฆ

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Bethโ€™s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to makeโ€”follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apartโ€ฆagain.

My Review:
I’m a massive Erin Watt fan and the blurb for this new book sucked me right in. I love a good forbidden romance and this was very close to perfection. Poor Beth. My heart bled for her. She was a great combination of vulnerability and strength. Chase was amazing, and I really felt for him. I was screaming at my Kindle at the abusive treatment he endured. The romance was a little too light for me with this one, and I hated that every single authority figure seemed to think it was okay to bully a boy who had already served his punishment. Other than that, I loved every bit of it and I think the authors did a wonderful job portraying the grief and torment in an authentic fashion. I also really enjoy Erin Watt’s style of writing and the pacing flowed beautifully, so much so that I stayed up until 4 a.m. reading this in one sitting. Highly recommended, especially if you are already a fan of this talented duo.
