Frankie DiGorgio has returned home for the summer to fix up and sell the home she grew up in. But when Frankie discovers Austin Stone is also back home and right next door, her summer suddenly seems more exciting than the motocross tracks she races on.
Four years ago, Austin was her best friend. Her first love. The only boy who saw more than just her rough edges.
But Austin left Frankie behind to perform in Las Vegas with his brother Dallas after winning Rising Stars. And Frankie didn’t wait around for him. Instead, she disappeared with no explanation and she hasn’t spoken to Austin since then.
Austin hates Frankie now.
Unfortunately, they’re next door neighbors again and Frankie and Austin can’t avoid each other anymore. With little more than bitterness, heartbreak, and secrets between them, they soon find themselves reverting to their childhood habits—prank wars. As Frankie and Austin’s past is put back together and old feelings resurface, they discover it’s a fine line between love and hate.
And the secrets Frankie has kept could cross the line right into hate.
This book is about Frankie and Austin (Who we briefly meet in other books). They were best friends, childhood sweethearts and each other’s soul mates…until one day Frankie just disappeared…Austin never forgot about her and she never forgot about him. When Frankie goes back to her childhood home to fix it up to sell she runs into Austin and the past is no longer the past for either of them. Can they figure out how to move on from the past or will they be destined to be apart? Can love really fix everything?
The reader becomes fully invested in the characters, the story and the outcome. The reader will laugh, cry, yell and scream all while never being able to figure out what is going to happen next. The author does have a lighter side to the upset when Frankie and Austin continue with their childhood prank wars…just when you think that the book is too sad – Bam – a confetti filled helmet happens!
You will be on a roller coaster ride of emotions while reading this author and you will be going to get the next book in the series as soon as you finish because you won’t be ready to leave the world that author Christine Manzari creates for us. If you haven’t read this author yet, you are missing out! Go grab this one or any other one of her books because they will quickly become your favorite! This author is a MUST read!
