*Synopsis*To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.
Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.
As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.
West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go.

This story is totally beautiful but really sad I'm a huge fan of Abbi Glines and I seen a few reviews that made me a lil scared of it. I should of known that this would of been amazing. I loved Maggie's character so much and I felt for her throughout this book. I was in tears in parts and if not in tears I had a lump in my throat. West is hot, like really hot but the way these two got together and looked out for each other was just so good. The way the book was written was amazing, getting into both West an Maggie's head was good it wouldn't of been as good in just one pov. After reading some reviews on this book I do understand what people are saying about this book but I didn't care I just loved West an Maggie's story it was just great xxx
