and spotlight D His voice wrapped around me, and he smiled Bright blue green settled in his eyes Dynamite detonated in my chest Roguish and radiant and ridiculous Help Taylor s voice and reactions to Calis were hilarious and heartbreaking and sweet Whenever Calis entered the room, Taylor turned into this adorable staring, stuttering, blinking puddle of aww Haha It was too cute I loved Briston Brooks descriptions of Taylor s energy Like when he spots Calis All my muscles went to the task of not choking on my own saliva Or here when he s tired My arms and legs wobbled like a late game jenga tower OH This was one my favorites after Taylor finds a job I thought about leaping into the air, high fiving a bookshelf Haha.The words are simple, but oh so perfect in capturing the moment and character All of the characters and emotions actually I adored Calis and Taylor s time on the page They were sweet and romantic from the get go The catching him before he falls, carrying his books, buying him dinner, and GAH the view spoiler motorcycle ride hide spoiler I loved it all The Are wethan friends angst, denial, and miscommunication went on a bit long and culminated into a disappointing dare and bet scenario that felt unbelievable to me though I mean it was sexy Don t get me wrong But the angst at that point wasn t even frustrating it was unbelievable There were too many obvious signs and feelings for me to just go with it at that point I loved the long looks, touches, and almosts , but it all lasted one holiday too many in my opinion view spoiler I mean HELLO He obviously loved you hide spoiler I wanted to slap em both upside the head DAnyway adding to the fun is a whole group of friends Raphael, Lee, Katt, Calis, Taylor and Naoko combine to make a group dynamic that is so much fun to be around and in You can feel how much they all care about each other They love and support each other with jabs and jokes They made me laugh and think and aww all the way through And wish I hope we get to seefrom the gang A Lee and Katt story could be fun.I know I m failing at capturing the sweetness of this book, but it s in there One of my favorite parts of this book was coming across moments packed with huge emotion and thought The emotion snuck up on me to be honest All of a sudden the words would jab at my heart and I d find myself uttering yeah, yeah, I know what you mean I had to stop waiting for something to happen I had to happen all on my own I had to actually start over, put the past in the past, and do something about the present Reason Number One was not perfect I have a short list of things I could complain about like the epilogue but I won t Haha I swear I won t It s a cute story about facing your past and accepting who you are and falling in love all at the same time A story full of caring, cigarettes, Risk games, apple pie, and warm hugs And maybe, just maybe a reason to quit smoking Recommended A billion stars I want goodreads to havethan five stars just so I can give this book what it deserves God, I loved this so much I have no words I started this last night stayed up way too late reading, picked it up as soon as I woke up, read as much as I could at work, then finished it when I got home I would have read it in one sitting if that had been possible for me today.Taylor was literally the cutest thing ever

words I started this last night stayed up way too late reading, picked it up as soon as I woke up, read as much as I could at work, then finished it when I got home I would have read it in one sitting if that had been possible for me today.Taylor was literally the cutest thing ever All stuttering and adorable Calis was a dreamboat And they were just perfect together I cannot come up with proper words to describe my love for them And I usually like for there to be a bit of sexy times in a book wink wink but I was glad this book didn t have a sex scene It made a lot of sense that they never did anything sexual and once I realized they weren t going to I kind of let out a sigh of relief Which is very unusual for me Haha I seriously loved all the characters immensely Except Rhett Obviously Ew But I wantedof Lee and I really wanted to know what was up with him and Katt I just wanted to smack him upside the head a bit But alas, I will never know the outcome But that s ok, everything about it was still incredibly perfect.This book also made me really really really want apple pie Damn you, Calis Schrader I will definitely be rereading this sometime in the near future I would probably pick it up again immediately if I didn t have some other things I desperately need to get further into.I don t usually write reviews, but I just had to put down some thoughts even though they are probably nonsensical because I loved this book soooooooooooooooooooo much READ IT Read it, now Go buy it right this second You won t regret it Pinky promise 5 starring my own book because that s who I am as a person.
