Book summary: 

Struggling to put her life back together after a tragic mountaineering accident kills her college sweetheart, twenty-one-year-old Holly Treadwell is trying to set aside her grief, forge ahead in school, and find herself again.

When Carter Hansen, a guy who brings back horrible memories from the night of the accident, finds his way back into her life, Holly’s unsure if she should let him in. He terrifies her in more ways than one and invokes feelings in her that she thought were buried forever. Regardless of her fears, she knows she must face him in order for her heart to heal.

Everyone tells Carter that what happened on the mountain that night was just a terrible accident, but even then, he can’t help but carry around the guilt and is unable to forgive himself. He’s drawn to Holly and being near her helps ease his conscience and gives him the release he needs.
As Holly and Carter’s relationship grows, they begin to realize that the more time they spend with one another, the more their wounds begin to heal—her grief and his guilt. But when Holly learns the details about the night of the accident—what everyone has been keeping from her—it will rip open old wounds and tear apart what they’ve both worked so hard to overcome…

       As soon as I overcome my biggest fear concerning New Adult novels, which would be typical new adult story that has been told so many time before, I'm able to enjoy and live with the book. Luckily for me I overcame that fear almost at the start cause it was different here. It has some typical elements but still it was a different kind of love story.

       This book has a really strong and captivating start and it drags you into the story right away. It starts with an accident, while it might not be the newest trick in writing it wasn't something that I expected for sure. After the accident that happened to her boyfriend Holly gets lost. Grief eats her whole and she is not capable of pulling her life together anymore. At some moments when everyone would give up and mark her as lost case her friends is still standing and battling for her. Jenna is hard as stone and she does everything to pull  Holly out of her mystery and she succeeds. Holly get to do normal things again but still many things hurt and one of them is seeing Carter. I can't tell you for what reasons as you find out most of the things later in the book. But as Carter is actually Jenna's boyfriend roommate it's inevitable for them to see each other. That's how they both get to free themselves from grief and find a way to enjoy in life together. Even though there is still a secret that might destroy everything.

     For once it's not typical bad boy and good girl story and for that I'm really thankful. I was able to fully enjoy this story and yes I cried cause I wanted to see them both happy. Even though some things bothered me like Carter's struggle to say some things still I was able to understand cause he didn't want to lose something that was making him whole.

Rating: 5 stars.

  1. I am so over all the New Adult out at the moment because they're all just copy cats of each other. But, as soon as you mentioned that this is not just about a bad boy and a good girl you had my interest!

    1. Yes I'm sick and tired of copy cats. So this one has some typical elements but is different at the same time. :)

  2. I've been steering clear of this one because the plot sounds so emotionally heavy and complicated, but it does sound really good!

  4. Yay Tanja! I'm so glad this one breaks out of the typical NA mold a bit and isn't a bad boy/good girl story. I definitely want to meet Holly and Carter and root for the two of them to be happy and together:)

  7. I am with you, so sick and tired already of the same worn out NA plots. I am glad that this one steers away from it and that you enjoyed it over all. I will remember this the next time I am in the mood for a NA.

  8. I'm so glad that this is not the same stereotypical NA story, though for some reason it gives me a Ten Tiny Breath vibe. Were Holly and Carter involved in the same accident? Ah, I really need some answers. Gotta buy it soon! Wonderful review, Tanja! I

  9. That's a pretty cover and NA books are really good and yes, they seem to be the same, but what to do? I love it! I'm glad this one turned out to be different and I'll have to check it out myself now and read it sometime, Tanja. Awesome review!
