I was extremely surprise when I looked up Taylor Lavati and saw she is only 23 years old. Prior to reading this book I had never heard of her and I am very happy to have found her. I look forward to reading more of her work. I enjoyed the story line and all characters in the book. Two characters who have both been through similar issues growing up and have their own issues from their past to work through are brought together in more then one aspect of their lives. Their relationships with their siblings is makes you fall in love with them even more and makes them very easy to relate to. Their journey through their struggles, what is priority to them, and their attraction to each other keeps you on your toes to the very end. Although this is listed as a standalone I would love to see more from the other characters I met in this story.
