Our thoughts...
I was hooked from the very  first chapter. When Greta’s stepbrother Elec comes to live with them her senior year, things don’t go the way that she would hope.

She didn’t know what to expect, but the sexy, tattooed, jerk was not it. He was downright rude to Greta. He had an endless stream of girls that he brought into the house. Greta realizes that there is more to Elec than meets the eye.

"You're the only girl in the entire world that's forbidden, and fuck me if that doesn't make me want you more than anything."

But just when things were looking up, one night and one phone call changed everything.   Just as quickly as he entered her life, he was gone again. He was never far from her mind.

When a family tragedy brings them both back together, they were both shocked to see how some things  had changed so much and others hadn't changed even one bit. 

"I know I'm not supposed to care. But when it comes to you, what I'm supposed to be feeling has never seemed to matter." 

Sexy, angst-filled story of first love and forbidden desires. A story with imperfect people who sometimes choose wrong.  Heartbreak and angst, healing and growth. And most of all it's a story of learning to follow your heart. 
"I want to be the only one to show you everything and to be the one you'll always remember for the rest of your life." 

I loved this story, it was heartbreakingly beautiful. I fell head over heels for Elec,  I laughed, cried, screamed, I wanted to jump into the pages and strangle him.  He is such a lovable asshole,but under that tough exterior, he is so loving, caring and  swoon worthy! 

Read it!
