Hope didn't have the best role model when it came to relationships. She’s content with her current no-strings-attached extracurricular activity with the lead singer of her band. She’s never believed in love and commitment.
Mason starts his eighth school in five years anticipating nothing more than the usual—boring classes, fighting more than making friends, and girls happily willing to succumb to his easy smile. He’s never put much stock into love at first sight—until he sees her.
Regardless of their painful pasts, Hope and Mason discover that sometimes never can become forever.
I had a hard time deciding if this should be a 2 or 3 star book. The first 50% of the book is good with only the main character falling in love in a “cheesy” way in my opinion. It just didn’t seem very realistic but other than that it was very well written and I could feel what the characters felt. However at about half way through the book I got bored, then towards the end I just couldn’t connect with the characters at all. This book just wasn’t for me. It was well written and it does have romance, some sexy scenes and the deep issue of Hope’s “vices”. But other than that it seemed to just drag and get boring. Hope feels like she can’t have anything good in life because of the things in her past and Mason is a good guy who sticks by her side but a lot of their drama just seemed to be unrealistic to me.
