I received an ARC copy for the purposes of reviewing this book. It will be available on Kindle Sept. 24, 2021.

Leena's life has been anything but perfect. An alcoholic mother creates an unbearable homelife and her longtime boyfriend, Chase, dumps her at her most vulnerable moment. Worse yet, Leena is forced to live in her truck. Leena's mantra is to make it through the summer, just long enough for college to start.

In steps Leena's best friend, Sydney, helping her start the next chapter of her life. After finding an apartment that's cheap, not slummy for them to share together, Leena finds her life in an upswing.

But now, two love interests step into the picture. Brent, the sexy wildcard who has secrets that fall too close to home for Leena. And Garrett, her ex-boyfriend's best friend. He's handsome, kind, and loyal and could be the one she never knew she wanted.

Who will Leena choose to start her new chapter with?

Kayla's writing was really good! There were no plot holes and it flowed well. It was a little hard to get through, but that’s because it was just hard to read what Leena had to go through with her mother.

I enjoyed seeing the growth that Leena made throughout the book. She may have had to grow quickly when she was young, but she grew so much more in this book.

While Leena had a choice between two guys, I really liked Garret. He was Leena’s breath of fresh air. Her best friend Sydney is great too, but Garret really helped turn her life around. The things that he did for her is something you’d only hear about in the movies, or in our case books. The other guy, well you will see. He rubbed me wrong from the beginning.

In all, it was a very good read and I highly suggest it! There isn’t much more I can really say without giving any spoilers, but the ending was perfect!
