It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.
The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.
He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.
This story begins when Ember decides to finally confess her feelings to Nate. She's been in love with him forever, and now she finally feels it's time to let him know. However, it doesn't exactly go has planned. And now years later after lots of drama, Nate finally wants her to know how he feels. But he may just be too late.
This book was another great addition to this series. I adored Nate and Ember together. They were great! I also really liked the story line, even though it was slightly predicable.
The other great thing about this one was the relationship between Nate and Ember's father. That was just amazing. I loved those two together, and I thought they brought a whole lot more to this story.
All in all it was a really good read, and I loved the happily ever after as well.
