He’s twenty-four. She’s eighteen.
His life is exactly the way he’s always wanted it to be…stable.
She’s quite possibly the very definition of unstable.
Noah saved her. Georgina never wanted to be saved.
Growing up, Noah Clark was passed from one relative to the next until he finally ended up living with his abusive, alcoholic uncle in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Thanks in part to the unwavering love and support of his best friend, Ellie Turner, Noah survived those years, escaped his uncle, and grew into the man he is today. Now he runs his own business and lives a pretty normal, no-nonsense life—one where he maintains a high level of control.
Georgina is Ellie’s younger sister. Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end. Now Georgie has returned home from the recovery facility her parents sent her away to and Noah, still haunted by the night that connects them, can’t stop himself from continuously trying to protect this girl he barely knows. But is he willing to give up all of the control he’s worked so hard to build in his life and risk everything for her? Even more importantly, would she do the same for him?
“Keep breathing. Count your breaths if you have to. One day breathing won’t be as difficult. One day you won’t have to count. I promise, there is good stuff waiting for you. It will find you.”
I loved the chemistry between Georgie and Noah. They are so wrong for each other, yet so right.
They had me grinning ear to ear during the little moments they spent in the guest room at Georgie’s house. Noah is impossible not to like. He doesn’t always say much, but when he does it’s worth it. I adored him. Georgie was stronger than I expected, and her humorous inner monologue kept me entertained throughout the book. All of the characters, main and secondary, were well-written and added something special to the story.
Overall, this story pulled at my heart, and I would recommend it! Plus, it’s currently only 99 cents so what do you have to lose!
