Everyone has a secret...
Gabe Hyde is on borrowed time. He's been hiding his identity for over four years-hidden from the world that used to adore him--obsess over him--driven to the edge of insanity by one poor choice. But that one choice, altered the course of his life forever. Pretending isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when pretending means hiding your real self from the people that care about you the most. But if anyone ever discovered the truth it wouldn't just be his life at risk--but hers.
Saylor doesn't hate men.
He's a reckless, happy-go-lucky, silver spoon fed pain in her ass. Everything about him makes her more and more confused. Unfortunately they both donate time at the same Group Home. If she wasn't afraid of flunking, she'd be long gone. She hates that she's attracted to him almost as much as he hates that he's attracted to her--and she can tell, especially since their first encounter ended up making her knees so weak she couldn't form coherent sentences for weeks afterwards. But the closer she gets to him, the more confused she becomes. He isn't who he says he is, and he's hiding something big.
What happen when two worlds collide? Two worlds that never should have met in the first place? Some secrets are too big to be hidden forever--the only question? Will his destroy everyone he loves? Or finally bring about the redemption he's been craving for the past four years?
Everyone has a secret...What's yours?
This is part of the Ruin series. Ruin, which I loved, was Wes and Kiersten’s story, where Wes battled cancer and Kiersten battled depression. This time, we focus on Gabe, Wes’ best friend. And Gabe was keeping a huge secret.
When I started reading this book, I was still hungover Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. I didn’t expect this to have music in it, too. Apparently, the main characters Gabe and Saylor are both musicians. Is it too much if I expected a soundtrack to go with this book, too? Yeah, I guess so. It may be unfair, but what I can say? I got Hoovered.
