For Jayceon Ashworth, he's lucky to make it through the day without the torment and aggravation. Pushing aside the taunting, he focuses on football and art until Seona Fisher crashes into his life.
Seona Fisher gets a second chance. Moving to College Station, Texas to be with her brother, Travis, is something she needs to escape the demons of her past. Starting over is never easy. Letting go of old habits is hard, but seeing his green eyes changes her world.
A friendship turns into them both wanting one another, and neither of them able to fight their feelings. But when the demons of darkness come back, Seona has to find her way through and back into Jayceon's arms.
Senior year is the end of an era; the year you prepare yourself to start a new journey. A time to spend with friends you may not see much after graduation. Then again, that’s what senior year is supposed to be. For me, it’s just a countdown to the day I can walk away and never look back.
When I started high school, I had high hopes. Playing football, having friends, going to parties and for the first two years, that’s exactly what happened. Then one night, I tried to do the right thing, and it all blew up in my face. Since then, high school has been a big pain in the ass. A place I dread going, full of bullies and rumors. The sooner it’s over, the better for me.
Another typical day at school and the hallways are crowded as usual, signaling my least favorite time of day. Since being on the football team as the starting wide receiver, things at school became a little harder than before. I’m not liked very much on the team, but some of the bullying stopped. The team hated me, besides Brendan, but even he is cautious with his friendship. In the classrooms they leave me alone, not wanting to deal with the teachers or the consequences. What’s the point of getting caught, when the hallway is jam packed and it’s easier to torture people, especially when there are too many people to see what’s happening?
On the way to my locker, I feel a hand curl around my arm and stop me.
I have a special attachment to this book as its editor but even before I took pen to paper to make changes, this was a touching but oh so infuriating story. Lol! Both Jacyeon and Seona lacked the ability to trust another person completely, to see beyond what someone may want to do to hurt the other and both drove me MAD with their lack of communication with the other!!! Jacyeon thought it was perfectly acceptable to have a female best friend that was obviously in love with him while having a girlfriend, but said girlfriend having a guy best friend....oh no. THAT meant they were sleeping together. I wanted to slap them BOTH. Lol!
This is so obviously a high school, first love romance, with the drama and the firsts and the above mentioned lack of communication issues. You will become attached to the characters, your range of emotions will be like a fast moving roller coaster- you will love, hate, hug, slap, cry, for these two people and will shake your Kindle when it's over, hoping more pages will fall out of somewhere so you can keep them with you.
I loved this book. I have already begged these two lovelies to collaborate again, so fingers crossed they make that happen! 5 Stars all the way! ~Kellie for Eye Candy Bookstore
