MY RATING: 5 STARS * * * * *
Beckett was smaller than most boys his age growing up. This caused him to have little to no self-esteem while faced with the physical abuse he endured at the hands of his mother.
His best friend Harlow, who’s not only beautiful, but tough as nails has been there for him since first grade.
Unforeseen circumstances separated them with promises of always keeping in touch. Reminders of a friendship left behind, possessions taken away only lead to a friendship that was once the center of Beckett’s world.
Ten years later, Beckett has the confidence and self-esteem to search for Harlow. The only problem is, she’s off the grid. Every day he thinks of her; every decision he’s made has been for her.
But for Beckett all the good things in his life don't last long. Moving in another place with his foolish mother is the end of his dreams.
Ten years later Backett and Harlow have a second chance to start a new life together. For them, though, love comes with a price tag and they are willing and ready to pay for it.
I gave this book 5 stars not for the good writing, for the plot or catchy phrases. If I have to honest the writing is too much simple, the side characters seems to fall in love at the speed of ligth. But for me a good book is a book that gives me feelings, that reaches my heart, that makes me laugh and cry, that makes me think about life.
So any “techinical” issues are not for me to judge.
In this book I felt the heart and soul of this author, how much she is eager to deliver to her readers a true story, to share with them a piece of her life. And this takes more courage than write the bestselling book of the year.
Thanks Shelly for sharing with me a piece of you. As a reader I can only share my review.
