My Review:

I really enjoyed this book. It was one of those books that was exactly what I wanted it to be when is tarted reading it. When I was contacted by the author I feel for the story form the start. Sometimes I just really want a book to fall in love with. Real emotions, real problems, relatable characters, a book that is the whole package. This novel delivered. It was a story that I feel into each time I picked it up, but it was one that I enjoyed taking my time to read. It was easy to savor the chapters wit the way they were written. Rotating between characters, you get a very large view of the world and its happenings and you dive into the situations from multiple angles. I thought that this made the book that much more fun to read, as you never knew who you were going to read about next. I loved the way it was done as well. You were never confused about who you were reading about. It was an easy read and didn't involve evaluation of POV at all. The story itself was a really great one. Learning about 4 characters at once give you a broad veiw in some aspects, but in others it was so ver personal about each relationship. I fell in love with it. June and Caroline both weave themselves into a tangled web, but its a very interesting on to get lost in. I truly enjoyed the book and you will to. I look forward to reading more form this author in the future. Definitely on my "To Watch" List.


The crossing paths of friendship, family, love, and loss are often complicated. June Deckert and Caroline Smith sparked a friendship in college that carried them through graduation. Although they are complete opposites in every way, they have spent the last four years inseparable. That is, until now. June finds herself falling for a man who seems unattainable. As she works side by side with him on a new media campaign, their feelings for each other come alive. But when his actions start to speak louder than words, she wonders if she’s missing something. Meanwhile, Caroline is fighting against her feelings for a recent acquaintance, and she decides to keep her new love interest a secret from June. Overwhelmed by these new emotions, her moods change swiftly, swinging up and down like a yo-yo. While June and Caroline try to maneuver their way through new relationships, Caroline starts lying to June to protect her from a truth that threatens to break her heart and tear them apart. In the end, Caroline’s deceit will test their friendship, and June will have to decide if her chance at love is worth putting her heart on the line.
