My Rating: 4.5 *'s
When we first meet Molly, her life is pretty much in the gutter and falling apart around her. She has experienced a huge loss in that of her fiance and is now questioning everything her life has been about for the last 5 years. Waking out on her Law School and moving back home is just the beginning of her journey.
Molly has been playing the blame game her entire life. She has blamed herself for so much and going home again just re-opens wounds that were buried deep within her. Upon reconnecting with her first love, she learns more about herself and her past.
I absolutely adored Ben and how open and honest he was about his past mistakes and his desires to fix everything that went so wrong 5 years earlier. I loved how he was so obviously heartbreaker material but only had eyes for Molly.
New Adult has quickly become my favorite Genre to read and having read several of Alyssa Rose Ivy's books, I can not wait to see what she comes up with next!
