This book speaks volumes Harper leaves her life behind and heads off to college to escape that was her reality. Upon arriving at college Haper feel that she can live the life that she could not live when she left her parents. She lands a job at a bar and make a few friends, but one day she runs into Tuck the campus player and bad boy. Soon a friendship is formed( against her friends advice not to ) and thing between the two slowly turns into something more. Both Harper and Tuck have painful past and secretes but can both of them open up to realize that they both need each other in order to move on and heal?
I must say that this story between Harper and Tuck has been a enjoyable read. I love how despite Harper's coworkers warnings she decides to spend time with Tuck. Both of them are tortured souls who must learn to trust each other(more Harper trusting then Tuck) with their past. What both do not realize is that their wounds run along the same length. This story at times can be intense with dealing with Harper's nightmares/reliving her past through her dreams. In the latter part of this story I did get a little misty eyed when Harper is bearing her past to Tuck, but all an all a good read.
And to whet your whistle a little here is a quote from the book one from Harper and one from Tuck.
