Ellery knows they can never be together because she is harboring a deep secret that could destroy Connor emotionally forever.

Synopsis from Goodreads
So I had such high hopes for this book because the story had sooooo much potential to be a very powerful moving story but in the end I felt it fell a bit flat for me.
Recently a friend made an analogy when I was telling him about this book and he said it was a bit like driving up a mountain and you are just about to drive off the cliff and then boom there is actually a rode there for you to drive on and it really wasn't a mountain more like a hill. This is what the story was too me.
I don't want to rip apart this book because I did like it and I will read Forever you but it saddens me when the potential wasn't met.
However this book still took me through the wringer of emotions but not the giezer it could have been. There was love, heartache, drama, angst, bitch slapping, loss and passion.
Even though I wanted more I did like the connection between Connor and Ellery and thought they brought the best out in each other even though they were both so stubborn and I did love the concept and idea of this story.
3 thumbs up!
