So wrong for each other…and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with “freaky” scars on her arms. Even Echo can’t remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo’s world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she’ll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

What can I say about this book?  It is beyond fantastic!  This book is so amazing and riveting and powerful and emotional and….I could go on for a while.  Point is, this one is a must read.  The story is wonderful and beautiful.

This story is quite the emotional roller coaster.  I laughed out loud a few times, teared up a few times and felt everything as if I was right there with the characters.  All of the characters were so great and so real. Even Aires felt real even though we never got to see him, he was still solid in the story.  Noah is definitely book boyfriend worthy, a bad boy and a protector.  There is so much more to him than people give him credit for.  Echo (I love the name) is stronger than she thinks she is and has a lot to deal with.  I feel so bad that her “friends” were the way they were.  I didn’t like the girls from school she hung out with at all, of course we weren’t really supposed to, either.  And Mrs. Collins?  If I ever need a therapist, I want her for the job!

The writing was great and clear; it read so fast and I had to force myself to stop reading when I had to go to bed.  There is so many different things that are going on in the story, but it wasn’t a cluttered story because of it, and the switching POVs wasn’t confusing either like they sometimes can be.  This is a book I highly recommend and one you just can not pass up!

Amazing, emotional, fast-paced, wonderful characters, a new favorite!

  1. I love Echo’s name too, although it would get a lot of teasing. Noah is totally book boyfriend worthy. Perfect.

  2. This is definitely one of the books I want to read ASAP! I’ve heard such great things about it.

    I love books that you have to force yourself to actually stop to read so you can sleep, lol.
