***#NerdGirlSteph’s Review***
This was P.A. Warren’s debut novel and it was a great one. She was able to make the reader feel as if they were on the journey with Hadley.  The book starts out with the tragic loss of Hadley’s entire family and it continues as it follows Hadley through heartbreak, depression, survivors guilt, healing, happiness, hope and finally love. This book was well written and had a steady flow throughout.  I enjoyed how the reader was able to get to  know the characters and feel the emotions they were feeling. I wanted to scream, cry and throw things along with Hadley in some parts of the story.  It was emotional at times, and I loved the transition Hadley took on her journey of healing.

My favorite character, however, was Avery. Avery had already overcome many demons of his own, and he was a genuinely good, likable, relatable and hardworking guy.  It just goes to show that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, as the author had described him as tattooed, pierced and wearing black clothing, but his outside and inside were two very different stories.  He really was the ideal guy and he was the answer to Hadley’s heartbreak.

This is a book that will reach out to every emotion from heartbreak to happiness so don’t hesitate pick up this book, just make sure you have plenty of time to read it (since you won’t want to put it down) and some tissues nearby as it is an emotional book. This was really a 4.5 star book for me, but given that wasn’t an option I went with 4 stars. I felt that the book was just lacking a bit more of some of the details.  When I was finished, I still had a few unanswered questions in my mind. It doesn’t delve into the loss that Avery had, or the relationship between Hadley’s mom and aunt to explain how it has been so many years since they have seen each other and then all of the sudden she is living with her aunt at the age of 18.  I just felt like a few more things needed to align to make this a full  5 star book for me, but it is a great read and I highly recommend that you add it to your TBR list!
