Summer was the girl who had it all: good grades, a spot on the high school volleyball team, and a best friend since elementary school. Then she was diagnosed with lupus…and her best friend betrayed her. Now she’s cutting ties, because nobody should have to deal with someone as broken as her.
Kane is the guy who never gives up. When he puts his mind to something, he gets it done—no matter how many broken bones it takes. So when a chance encounter at the urgent care throws him in the path of Summer, the girl he’s secretly had a crush on for years, he’s determined to win her heart.
Despite her vow to keep people away, Summer finds herself falling for Kane’s charm. Will the boy who never gives up be able to win—and keep—the heart of the girl who is afraid to let people in?
My first reaction after reading this book can be summarized in one word: AWWW (sigh). What a lovely and cute book. You just gotta love Kane, who is just like an over eager puppy, with floppy limps and falling all over his own legs. And still waggling his tail and looking adorable.
And you can’t help but feel sympathy for Summer. The good girl, who had it all and now is struggling with her life, since she was diagnosed with lupus. Acting up like a teenager and not willing to surrender to the fact that she has to change her life. And Caroline has done an outstanding job of showing how an autoimmune disease has an enormous impact on the life of a teenager. But she also kept the tone light and the laughter flowing (with the help of Kane).
So, in all, a wonderful cozy read. Not too heavy, but interesting none the same. Well done, four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
