Cooper sees Remi and he falls hard. Remi sees Cooper and wonders if she can do both. The question is; will he ruin her plans, or will she let him be a part of them?

Here's my review of this fabulous book!
Lila is amazing.
I repeat, Lila Felix is a literary genius. And I'm not just saying that 'cause I know her and she's the sweetest lady ever. She really pulls you in and makes you feel what's going on. It's like it's happening to you and you feel every heartbreak, every laugh, every swoon worthy moment right in your chest.
The book starts off with Remi. Her mother has spent the majority of her life depending on a man who winds up leaving her high and dry with kids and no way to support them. The mother proceeds to spend all of Remi's life telling her that a woman should never depend on a man for anything and you have to make your own way. School and work are important.
Then of course Remi meets Cooper Neal and holy moly, do things change. They both get shipped to live with someone else and start a new school. And the attraction is instant, but they take things as they come. The pace of their relationship was perfect and Cooper is a serious sweetheart. By the end of the book, I was crying for him and swooning at the same time. When two people fall so hard for each other, even if things aren't perfect, those are my kinds of books. They make me want to relive my own romance with my husband and feel all that first love stuff all over again.
This book is not about perfect love, it's about love that hangs on when your own insecurities and future plans try to make themselves more important than that love. But they aren't. In my book, love is the most important thing there is and the ending.... the way she ended this was so out of the ordinary for the books I've read, I was smiling the whole way through. I wouldn't mind reading another book about these two.
If you haven't tried Lila Felix, she has another book, Emerge that's out, that's just as good if not better.
5 wonderfully surprised, book boyfriend material, swooning and then more swooning, crying like a banshee and then laughing then next minute stars from me.
