Summary from Goodreads: His obsession.
Her fall.

High school senior Zephyr Doyle is swept off her feet—and into an intense relationship—by the new boy in school.

Zephyr is focused. Focused on leading her team to the field hockey state championship and leaving her small town for her dream school, Boston College.

But love has a way of changing things.

Enter the new boy in school: the hockey team’s starting goaltender, Alec. He’s cute, charming, and most important, Alec doesn’t judge Zephyr. He understands her fears and insecurities—he even shares them. Soon, their relationship becomes something bigger than Zephyr, something she can’t control, something she doesn’t want to control.

Zephyr swears it must be love. Because love is powerful, and overwhelming, and…terrifying?

But love shouldn’t make you abandon your dreams, or push your friends away. And love shouldn’t make you feel guilty—or worse, ashamed.

So when Zephyr finally begins to see Alec for who he really is, she knows it’s time to take back control of her life.

If she waits any longer, it may be too late.


I have a love for these kinds of emotional young adult books that are not only romance (and sometimes romance gone wrong), but about the main character finding themselves after losing who they are.  They tend to have a good message to them, and I have the feeling this one is going to really fall into that category.  I’m so excited for this book, because it seems like it’s one of those books that I will completely devour in one sitting.

What do you think about this one>

  1. I so want to read this book–it sounds like just the sort of haunting, emotionally-charged, heart-wrenching read I love to enjoy!
