I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.
I’d call it self-preservation.
I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.
My escape plan almost worked.
Except I left one thing behind.
Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.
I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything.
Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.
She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.
But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.
Be still my heart!! Oh, this book is just everything and then some. Pure, unadulterated lust turned love. The story of Joey (Josephine) and Logan is awe-inspiring. The zest for life that they each have. Giving, but not taking and finding that they can be so much more than friends. It’s a story that tests the boundaries. That tests friendships and brings families together. They say that your spouse should be your best friend. Well, why not make it so? The thing is ... Joey must get over her jealousy and what she made Logan out to be in her head. Sometimes what you see is not the real story. You need to know what’s behind the dark glasses. You may just find out that the person was protecting a loved one all along.
I just adore this story and I cannot wait to see what Alex Martin has in store for us next. This is my first experience reading her work and she now has a new forever follower!
