Becca has been head-over-heels for Alec from the instant they met. He's a brainy jock with a poet's heart—in other words, perfect for her. Camille is careful with her words and protective of her heart, especially since Chicago. Then a new boy in her new town catches her off guard with a surprise kiss. Too bad that new boy is Becca's boyfriend, Alec. Camille and Becca have never met, but their lives will unravel and intertwine in surprising ways as they deal with what happens after the kiss.
Alec, Becca's boyfriend, was a jerk. After Becca started working and establishing responsibilities, her time became limited. A supportive boyfriend would remain by her side. But, Alec was nothing but a weak minded man. His mistake of kissing the new girl Camille, cost Becca her heart. I felt every emotion Becca went through since I know what it feels like to be cheated on. I started seeing how fragile and depended she was on Alec. But, I admired her courage and restraint for dealing with the heartbreak. Both characters grew throughout the book and I was glad to see an enlightening ending. Overall, a great way to start loving poetic versed novels, I am excited to also pick up Pure and every other future release by Terra!
