A beautiful romance crafted by the talented author Mia Sheridan. This is the 2nd book I’ve read this year written by the author and I really enjoy her writing style. This book stands alone and is a quick read at less than 200 pages. I personally, engulfed it in less than 24 hours.
What I really liked about this book, was the premise of young love that shaped Evie, the main character, and the back and forth between her youth with Leo and adulthood with Jake, Leo’s friend. Never a dull moment in this book lots of good twists that I dare not spoil. It’s one to add to your ‘reading list’ for sure.

There were a ton of fantastic quotes that I enjoyed from this story, but the best is:
“After a minute, I look up and the boy named Leo is staring at me. I stare back, but he doesn´t look away. “Why are you looking at me?” I hiss at him, my cheeks turning hot, filled with shame for the exchange he just heard.
He just keeps looking at me for a moment, and then he shrugs. “Because I like your face,” he says, but now a corner of his mouth is quirking up in a half smile.” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
Ahh, this quote is a girly girl swoon moment… Oh Leo!
Okay I can’t resist, here are a few more quotes to enjoy:
“Sticks and stones and fists CAN break your bones, but it’s the words that break your heart.” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
“I think that 95 percent of knowing you’re the greatest is all about confidence. You might suspect you’re the greatest, you might hope you’re the greatest, but if you don’t have the balls to proclaim yourself the greatest in bold packaging, and let your critics test you if they dare, then you probably aren’t the greatest. Who can resist the guy who really, truly believes in himself?” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
“And the thing about falling in love is that no matter where you are when it happens, you can’t help but to color those moments with beauty,even if you’re in a location of ugliness. He made what would have been a place of nightmares into a place to dream.” ― Mia Sheridan, Leo
