I can’t believe I didn’t review this after reading it. I adore this book. When I started it, I wasn’t sure I would enjoy reading about someone wheelchair bound (because I’m a asshole? -Just being honest!) because I wasn’t sure I would relate to the character. I was wrong as all get out. Corey is just like any other college freshman except shes dealing with a recent sports injury that left her partially paralyzed from the waist down.

It was really fun to read about how she adjusts to college life and her blossoming friendships with her roommate and the hockey stud across the hall, Adam Hartley.

Speaking of Hartley, the book’s story is told from dual POVs, Hartley and Callahan’s. So we get a glimpse into his head as well. He’s both charming and kind of an asshole, but not enough that you ever hate him. He seems to do the best he can and always cares about Callahan- coming through for her when it matters.

The pacing of this book is wonderful. No insta-love. The characters are well developed. The relationships are well developed. It’s “laugh out loud” funny.

I’m excited for the next book in this series, The Year We Hid Away. I’m sure it was be a favorite as well!
