Year Published: 2016

Genre: Contemporary; Romance


My name is Emma Sawyer.

I met Charlie and Wyatt on the same sultry, summer day. The moment happened out of nowhere, all fast and quick and a little strange. Or maybe that was just Wyatt's personality.

It was Charlie that brought us together. Little Charlie with those ridiculous ears. I found the dog, waiting in a pool of his own blood. Waiting for someone. Waiting for me.

Now Wyatt, he wasn't waiting for anyone. At least that's what he said, except I saw something different in the broken guy all alone out in the woods. I knew he needed me before he knew it himself.

Wyatt with his hidden dimples. Wyatt with his warnings to stay away. He was a hard lump of coal, ready to burn everything around him. The more he burned, the more it pulled me into the pain I saw etched on his troubled face.

I wanted to help Wyatt. I wanted to save him like he had saved all the Charlies in the world. He told me not to fall for him, but I did anyway. I fell hard and fast and deeply in love with Wyatt Caulfield.

But that was before I knew his secret.

My Take on the Book:

This book was very moving at times – and out of the two narratives; I enjoyed Wyatt’s the most. If you’re into contemporary YA with a little bit of romance mixed in – try this book. I ended up giving this leisurely read a four star rating.

Last Word:

It’s the first time that I’m reading a book by this author – and if this one is anything to go by, I’ll definitely be picking up more.
