Jake and Madison met when they were both six years old. Their fathers worked together in the oil fields and they lived only three houses away from each other.
The two quickly became best friends and were inseparable. That is, until their Freshman year of high school when they had a huge fight.
That fight ended their friendship completely and they actually began to hate each other.
Maddy is a good girl and remains a virgin for many years. Maddy is waiting for “the one” before losing her virginity. Jake is the exact opposite. He has sex with lots of different girls and has no interest in actually dating any of his bed partners.
Jake calls Maddy a “prude.”
Maddy calls Jake an “asshole.”
Then in their Senior year of high school tragedy strikes and Jake and Maddy are drawn to each other again. But, can they get over the pain they’ve caused each other over the past few years?
This book can almost be considered a novella since it only consists of 122 pages.
This book contains scenes that are sexual in nature and that are not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen.
I enjoyed reading this book. It is a sweet story about two people who were always meant to be together, but who; through various events and misunderstandings always seem to be at odds with each other.
Readers should have no problem relating to the characters. Everyone knows someone who is just like Maddy, and everyone knows a person who behaves the way that Jake does.
This book can teach new adults the value of communication. If Maddy and Jake had sat down together and let each other know how they felt, they could have saved themselves lots of heartache.
This book is perfect for those who are past their teenage years, but have not yet settled into a comfortable adult life. I love that there is now a “New Adult” book category.
I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars in the New Adult category. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
* I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
