Live young. Live hard. Love deep.
Charley Redford was just an ordinary girl until Jake Caplin moved to her small town in Indiana and convinced her she was extraordinary. Almost from day one Jake pulled Charley into the deep and promised he was right there with her. But when a tragic incident darkened Jake’s life he waded out into the shallows and left Charley behind.
Almost four years later Charley thinks she’s moved on. That is until she takes a study year abroad in Edinburgh and bumps into none other than Jake Caplin at a party with his new girlfriend. The bad-boy-turned-good attempts to convince Charley to forgive him, and as her best friend starts spending time with Jake’s, Charley calls a truce, only to find herself tumbling back into a friendship with him.
As they grow closer, the spark between them flares and begins playing havoc with their lives and relationships. When jealousy and longing rear their destructive heads, Charley and Jake struggle to come to grips with what they mean to one another.
And even if they work it out, there is no guarantee Charley will ever trust Jake to lead her back into the deep…
First love. First heartbreak. Second chance.
It was an okay book for me. It started off pretty exciting knowing that Charley and Jake had this amorous deep past, but as the story goes further I found myself scowling at some points and wincing at the twists. Yeah yeah. I suck at this kind of genre. The resolution was at the very far end and it was okay since it has books to follow, but can we realy call it a resolution? Nayyy..
I don't understand Jake's reason slash explanation.. Omg I mean what really was your point, bb Jake? Good points of the novel has to be, the cool secondary characters, heart-fluttering dialogues and very relevant past-present switch of chapters. I liked Charley and Jake but I think character development will happen, must happenen, in the next books.
Still a good novel..
