It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be broken…no matter how hard we tried.

I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.

Lake is a young 16-year-old who has her life mapped out.  All I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed…Do anything and everything possible to make your application to USC standout.  The perfect daughter.
Till the day she meets Manning, the construction worker who is working on the house next door.  She is 16 and he is 23 and he knows it’s wrong.  But how can you change your feelings when the feelings are so strong.

Tiffany, is the older sister who has done nothing right their parents eyes.  She is the party girl, didn’t get good grades and goes through boyfriends quicker than you can learn their name.  She knows how to play the game of scoring a man…

This book is the first in a three book series.  Just the beginning of a great storyline. Giving us the background of how Lake and Manning and Tiffany all work.  What a great start to a series.  A wonderful page turner that by the time I read the last page, I wanted to throw my kindle knowing I have to wait till May to get more!

As with all of Jessica Hawkins books, the writing is amazing and the attention to every detail there in the words.  I will be counting down the days till we get book 2!!!
