Official Blurb:


Lexi

Reliving my past.
Confronting my mother.
Finding my family.

The summer before my senior year is a roller coaster of emotions, but I make it. I come out on the other side, stronger and ready to face my last year of San Francisco State University, when life takes another direction. The rock I’ve come to count on disappears emotionally and leaves me reeling. Will we find our way, or will I be lost and alone again?

Derek

Watching her pain.
Lifting her up.
Loving her strength.

The summer before my senior year is better than I could’ve imagined. Her strength knows no bounds and is truly inspiring to everyone around her. Then the phone call from my past comes and knocks me off my feet. Unable to look at her while dealing with this, I hide, like a coward. Will I get over this moment from my past, or will it drive a permanent wedge between us?



Immediately after finishing the first book I went straight into the second book. I could not wait to get more of Derek and Lexi. I thought the first book was emotional but this one got me too. At times I was literally sitting there with my mouth open! At times I felt so sorry for both Lexi and Derek. We find out in the first book how much these two actually went through by suffering loses and tragedies affecting both their lives. Both Derek and Lexi are trying to move on from the pain by being happy with each other. Of course they still struggle in their relationship. Who wouldn’t suffer a little after everything they have been through? But Derek is so patient and loving with Lexi. Even though sometimes they get irrigated with each other, they are still trying to survive. There were a few parts in this book that literally made me want to jump into this book and slap people. Frustrated does not even cover it. Then there were times I was smiling so hard and I wanted to jump in and hug people. After reading this second book from Lisa I have learned she likes to bring out all emotions within. I don’t want to write a review with spoilers but if you haven’t read this series I highly recommend it. This series feels very real and raw and emotional and I can actually see this happening in real life. Once I finished reading I couldn’t wait for more. Then at the end it says Lexi and Derek were getting another book and I cannot wait to see how their story will play out. I am hoping for a beautiful happily ever after. They both deserve it!!!!
