I’ve met boys like him before. Rich. Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there is something different about him that piques my curiosity. The way he looks at me, like he is staring through the bars of a gilded cage he’s never left. Like he is one breath away from suffocating beneath a mound of responsibilities. He is different from the rest because he doesn’t wear his money… his money wears him. I just don’t think he knows it yet.

She’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. She’s everything I’ve never been able to be. Carefree. Whimsical. A dreamer. Her laugh is infectious. She is irresistible. I can’t help but be drawn to her with an intensity that steals my breath and muddles my senses. I want to know her, need to know her, but how can I allow myself that liberty when I don’t have the freedom to make my own choices?
Phillip and Maggie think they have it all. Even though they come from opposite backgrounds, they each have bright futures paved out, with no distractions holding them back.

Until the fateful day they meet each other.

After a brief, adventurous time together in The Hamptons, Maggie and Phillip find themselves saying goodbye just as the spark of love flashes intensely between them. Can their budding connection be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?

Oh wow where do I begin?

Thank you to Candace and Sonya for letting me be part of this tour. I’ve previously read Sonya’s book The Summer I Fell and ADORED it. I have End Note and If Ever I Fall on my TBR pile and reading this has just made me want to bump them right to the top.

This book follows Maggie and Phillip on the epic journey of love. Maggie is a red headed girl who lives life to the fullest. She spends her days doing whatever makes her happy and never turns down an opportunity. Phillip on the other hand spends his days following whatever schedule his mum has planned for him. His life is about pleasing others before himself. That is until he meets Maggie.

Maggie shows Phillip the life he could be leading. Shows him everything he’s been missing out on and once he starts he doesn’t want to stop.

This book is extremely well written and will have you laughing, crying and sitting on the edge of your seat frantically turning the pages to see what happens next. Each chapter is written from either Maggie or Phillip’s perspective. I enjoyed this because it allowed you to get into both of their heads. I especially loved the chapters of their letters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope to see a lot more from these two talented writers.

About Candace Knoebel

Candace Knoebel is the award-winning author of Born in Flames—book one in a young adult fantasy trilogy. She discovered in 2009 through lunch breaks and late nights after putting her kids to bed, a world where she could escape the ever-pressing days of an eight to five Purgatory. And an outlet for all the voices residing in her head.
Published by 48fourteen in 2012, Born in Flames went on to win Turning the Pages Book of the Year award in February of 2013. In January of 2014, the last book in the trilogy, From the Embers, was released, thusly completing the trilogy. She now works on the Night Watchmen Series, while guzzling Red Bulls and pretending to be a ninja on Heelys.

About Sonya Loveday

Sonya Loveday, first and foremost is a reader, an avid one. It is of that love that brought her to the realization that this was the answer to the nagging persistent feeling that ‘there’s got to be something more’.
The dream came alive in 2009 when she purchased her laptop and began the tedious step of becoming a published author.
When she’s not reading, she’s writing. When she’s not writing, she’s reading. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s sleeping, shuttling her children back and forth to school, letting the dogs and cats in and out of the house for the umpteenth time in the last hour and dreaming of a clean house.
