When Mikayla imagined her prom night, she envisioned a fairy-tale evening full of romance. So when betrayal and tragedy come in quick succession, Mikayla is completely destroyed. Suddenly, everything she loved and everyone she relied on are tragically, irrevocably gone.
Jake, a handsome boy she just met, happens to witness her loss. With no one to turn to, Mikayla is forced to depend on this near stranger and his family, and he in turn is determined to take care of her. But Mikayla—thrust into adulthood with no one to guide her—is desperate to contain her grief and hide what she considers to be her weakness. Mikayla and Jake both want more, but despite their growing closeness and intense chemistry, she tries to keep her distance and protect her heart. As he does everything in his power to win her trust, Mikayla must choose between remaining alone and safe or letting love in.
I am totally in love with this series. and totally in love with Jake. He is truly the ultimate romantic book boyfriend. He was such a rock, a constant, a stronghold when everything in Mikayla's life was going into a tornado of chaos and heartbreak. It was like one after another, everthing that would break this girl, did. And the balls of James, I just can't believe it. But Logan was right... Jake loved her at her lowest, when she was shattered and broken, he still loved her and helped her put herself back together. He really is her other half.
This is such a beautiful love story. Kind of love the beauty that rose from the ashes. But Megan, now there is one thing I did not see coming. But good lord. just wow.
I love all things Jake. I love all things Jay too. If you haven't picked up this book or series, you really need to . it is so inherently beautiful and amazing, and just...perfect.
I give this 5 stars
