Not being generally a Fan of YA/NA genre of romance , and less so of High School Love stories, I took a chance because I trust EK's sensibility in handling normal stories in extraordinary way. She is a good writer and I've been her fan since lotus series. Here too , I enjoyed reading about simpler love and its sweeter problems.
Kason and Adaline are South Shore high students. Ady is a transplant from Texas and Kason is from the seedier part of Florida. They couldn't be any further apart and on opposite sides of social spectrum . Yet they have an instant attraction and they take time to develop it into something more stronger.
They hang out in a group with Trent , Molly and Micah .
Somehow, he’s found the hidden path straight to my soul, a path not even I was aware of. But here he is, my body absorbing him in fractions as he continues to slowly hand himself over to me, piece by piece. He isn’t one to open up quickly, but when he does, with every small bit he hands over to me, I fall that much deeper.
They go about the bullied hallways and jealous classrooms with hands held tightly and sweet ,trusting kisses .
The time flies quickly and though they encourage each other's ambitions, they don't want to shackle the growth of their still pubescent love. College time is there and their lives are going through a change , Scary and exciting at the same time. They both wanna be there for each other , as much as explore new possibilities in their own individual fields.
“This feels like a dream,”I murmur peacefully. “You feel like a dream.”He takes my hand from his face and presses his lips to the inside of my palm. “Then let’s never wake up.”
Adaline loves whole heartedly with innocent heart. The world is a rosy place for her and she gives Kason naive respect and devotion even though he's battling his inner demons , including his mom Sharon. That's very endearing and sweet of her and she loves Kason unconditionally
A person he never has to fear will turn their back on him or judge him. A person who can be his safety net so he doesn’t have to always be so strong , that he can have his moments to unload his pain and know that, with me by his side, it doesn’t mean he has to fall.
The story comes to a shocking cliffie stop and I'm expecting an equally challenging time in book 2 and EK's expertise in solving the crisis.
