In the small town of Borders, New Hampshire, everyone knew everything. There was no escaping the gossip, lies, and scandal. You were sucked into it like an undertow of a dark lake.
Jenny Pearson would be on the first bus out of there after graduation. That was her master plan. Only 68 more days and counting. Nothing could happen in 68 days. Nothing could keep her there. Nothing or no one.
Except… Draven Lepage.
In a town filled with lies and secrets, sometimes it’s best to keep your nose in a book. At least that’s what Jenny thought, until the bad guy spilled his deepest secret. Draven was sinking, and Jenny was his only hope.
“Do you trust me?” Draven asked.
I reached for, and grabbed his cold hand. The water was dark, the sky only lit by the graying moon. My lips shivered, my heart was beating immensely, but I held on tightly to his hand. It was my last chance. We sink or swim….
Although I’ve known of Regina Bartley for sometime I must regrettably admit that this is my first time reading one of her books. When I saw this cover and read the blurb I immediately knew that this book was being added to my TBR list! I am so glad that I decided to take time out of my overwhelming life (life of a college student is no joke) and devour this binge-worthy read. I literally stayed up way to late reading this one because once I started I wanted to know EVERYTHING! It was totally worth my a** dragging the next day when my alarm woke me up way too soon…
Jenny and Draven’s chemistry was undeniable, even if they both refused to accept it at first. These two had my heart right from the start and I found myself completely captivated by their different life experiences…in many ways I think this is what brought them drastically closer. Jenny comes from a well structured and lovable family, while our dear sweet Draven grew up with parents who would rather get in trouble with the law then care for their son. Apart his world is crumbling, but together they begin to repair his lifelong scars.
I absolutely adored every single moment of this story and I can’t help but recommending it to my book friends. You may not think this book is for you, but it is completely worth the chance. I cannot wait to see what Regina Bartley comes up with next (and of course go back to read some of her past releases)!
