What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?
down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her
head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews
College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she
doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named
Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As
their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s
been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal,
and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to
pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she
realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic
history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the
only person who can keep him from drowning.
Another great book by Jessica Park. This book shared some similarities with Flat-Out Love, which I also loved dearly, yet they were so very different.
book touched even tougher topic than I had expected, but there were
some very hilarious scenes as well, even they weren't that many. It was a story about abuse and regrets. These seem to be the most popular themes for new adult books at the moment, but trust me this one has set the bar for the others.
were some VERY erotic scenes. But I still liked the book and after
those steamy moments, the story became even more emotional, which kinda
made up for that.
