Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…
That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
Sky and her best friend, Six, sometimes ask boys to come over and make out with them. It gave them a reputation at school but they simply didn’t care. Sky never did nothing more than make out. She didn’t feel anything, it was like kissing the back of her hand.
Then one day at the supermarket, he met a boy. Well, he called her attention because he thought he knew her from somewhere. Holder.
Holder wanted to give her lots of firsts, and Sky, for the first time, felt something.
“The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you.” – Holder
I wasn’t able to stop reading this book. I was very curious about Sky’s lack of connection with guys until she met Holder. Did something happen in her past that she blocked out? I really loved the way the book progressed and ended. It is worth the read!
I leave you with this quote:
“The sky is always beautiful. Even when it’s dark or rainy or cloudy, it’s still beautiful to look at. It’s my favourite thing because I know if I ever get lost or lonely or scared, I just have to look up and it’ll be there no matter what…and I know it’ll always be beautiful.”
