I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
In this book we meet Lucas and Lacey. These two have been friends since they were in their early teens and one day Lacey gets up the courage to tell her best friend that she would like more than friendship with him. He shoots her down and thus they have a beautiful friendship. Sound nice right to bad that isn't the whole story. Lacey has secretly still been in love with her best friend since the day she told him she was. However she knows there can never be more between them since they day he brutally rejected her. Part of her self confidence died that day as well and she doesn't feel like she measures up to what a man is looking for. With that weighing on her and the fact that she gets now support from her parents if it doesn't fall in line with their ideas she is constantly feeling like she just doesn't measure up. So when she gets invited to an internship that she shouldn't want and shouldn't even be considered for she knows she needs to buck up and try for the brass ring.
Lucas can't tell Lacey how he really feels all the years before he met her really screwed with his head. Though he loves Lacey he feels the best thing he can do for her is keep her at arms length. However when this internship comes up and she is so excited all he feels is anger and jealousy. The reason for that well what Lacey doesn't know is that the man she is trying to get this internship with is none other than Lucas's father. On any normal day he hates seeing her with any man but when that man is his father that is where the anger comes from.
There are many twists and turns in this book. There is a conclusion to this book but the author has also left it open for a sequel. This book does show how things that happen to us in our formative years effect us in ways we never think of later in life. There are many things I want to tell you about this book but with all the twists in it I don't want to ruin it for any other readers. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
