I’ve been fawning over this book ever since Jessica announced that it was in the works. Not only is she tackling my most favorite story line of all time, but it is JESSICA. FREAKING. HAWKINS.
As soon as ARC’s were open for request, I jumped on that bandwagon so hard that, if it were literal, I would’ve fallen right out of it. The good news is that yes, I was approved and received an ARC 2 days ago. But the bad news is… I finished it at midnight last night and I. Am. Profoundly devastated. Let’s just say I cried myself to sleep… This wasn’t pretty when I had to get up 4 hours later to go to the bay but that’s what happens when you trust Jessica with your heart. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Jessica knows what she’s doing.
Anyway, this is isn’t a review, that will come in release day. Take a look down below so you can get a taste of why I hold this masterpiece so close to my heart.
Plus, LOOK AT THIS GORGEOUS SPECIMEN OF A WOMAN ON THE COVER. I have a severe crush on her and I am not ashamed to admit it.

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be broken…no matter how hard we tried.
I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.
