5 HUGE SHINY stars
Gosh I SO Thankful that I got the chance to read an ARC copy of this AMAZING book!!
I swear some of the best books I have read have love triangle troubles. This book just takes it to a heart breaking level. I fell instantly in love with this book and its characters. Quincey has lived a hard life. Even if she doesn't believe so, she is an incredibly strong woman from the get go. I instantly related to her and fell instep with her journey of self discovery at college. Leaving home and adventuring on to something completely new is a great thing for many people. In Quincey's case it opened up a whole new world of love and loss.
This book was just wonderful. Each character you meet through the book grips your heart in a different way. They are well developed and easily relatable as I said above. Each chapter leave you hanging on each word until the next. Such a real and true story in so many people lives. It had my heart running the lines with each situation. I was angry, excited, hurt, infurated. I went the spectrum and it was fan-friggen-tastic.
The prologue itself draws you in. With that one page you just feel compelled to turn forward to see what happened, and who it was about. It was one of those books that once I sat down and devoted some time to, I couldn't put it down. I was in shambles after finishing it. Book Hangover for sure, but the good kind. The kind where a book was just THAT good.
My Heart just broke. To be torn so much with a situation is just heartbreaking and unfair to all parties involved.
Jenna and Quincey. Best Friends in ALL. They were super real characters and I instantly connected with their situation. Setting off on your own and not having anyone but that ONE friend that you know you can always relate to. That was who Jenna was to our Quince. She was her soundboard, her therapist, and her best friend. Declan and Brodey. These boys are H-O-T hot. *Fans herself* I decided the moment I read about them a month ago they were going to be dreamy, but reading this book took it to a whole other level. Declan was our sweet and lovable straight up man. He was the definition of a Good Guy. Looks, personality,intentions, all straight across the board. An all around perfect man. Brody <3 On the other hand he was a bad boy to the T. But not at the same time. He was caring and loving and just gosh some of the things that came out of his gorgeous mouth *melt*. Last but not least you had our main attraction: Quincey. She was insecure in many things, and naive, but you couldn't help but love her. I thought she was incredibly strong going through what she had. She is beautiful and strong and relatable. Everything a heroine should be.
This book was wonderfully written as I said before. Each chapter grabbed and and kept you on point with attention through the entire thing. It was also wonderfully edited. I wouldn't change a single thing about it. It was a fantastic read and I cannot wait to see what Sydney give us next :D Let's hope I am still on her good side and can ARC review again :) Teehee. 5 stars!

Fate brought her here, but will her choices destroy her dreams?
Quincy Priest made all the right choices in her small town, black-and-white life. But being perfect is tiring. So. Very. Tiring.

But when Quincy meets not one, but two perfect guys, she has to make a choice. In doing so, she might forfeit the relationship she secretly longed to find.
Declan. Sweet, handsome, and perfect. He makes her feel cherished for the first time in her life.
Brody. Sexy, hot, and irresistible. He could tear down her carefully built walls.
Before she can become the woman she wants to be, Quincy will make mistakes. And suffer one unimaginable loss.
