Synopsis : If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk’s home life, they’d send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom’s freedom and her own happiness. That’s how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn’t want her and going to a school that doesn’t understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn’t get her, but does….Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can’t tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn’t be less interested in him. But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won’t let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all….
4.5 out of 5 Stars
Review: Beth’s had a hard life, she finally had a fresh start but will she take it? Or will she give it all away for one person? I really, really liked this book, especially Ryan and Beth’s uncle. As much as i liked Beth she kind of drove me nuts with how she felt like she owed her mom so much, I just couldn’t understand it. Ryan on the other hand I adored, he changed so much from the beginning to the end. He was so caring and never gave up even when the going got tough. I do have to complain how it ended, I has so many questions left unanswered, I wish it could of went just a couple more chapters. I really enjoy Katie McGarry books and look forward to the rest of the series!
