When fate brings the two girls together, life seemed to fall into place. Until their future plans are shattered the moment someone leaves drugs inside Max’s school locker.
While Max inevitably loses hope of escaping her new grim reality, Emily struggles to move on without the one she loves most. Especially when she’s the only one determined to find answers. But the closer Emily gets to discovering the truth, the harder it will be to stop her pursuit, even when it leads to dangerous consequences.
🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW By Kassa
This book popped my FF cherry. Since I rather enjoy MM romance I decided to give this one a chance and read FF. It was also my first time with this author, so new experiences all over the place.
The plot itself was good. It was well thought through and wrapped up quite nicely. I suspected the bad guys early on, but I don’t think that’ll be the fact for everyone. Emily was a great character and I connected deeply with her thoughts and feelings. Her love and despair was palpable for me and I could absolutely understand why she wanted to save Max.
However, Max, I couldn’t connect to at all. I couldn’t understand what she did and her feelings and nothing. Honestly I felt like I didn’t know anything about her in the end and that is meaning something since 2/3 of the book are from Max’ point of view. I wished I could understand her better, could understand her reasonings for pushing Emily away better when she loves her so fiercely.
All in all I rather enjoyed reading Max’ and Em’s story. It was a fastpaced, interesting read, I quite liked and I’m sure I’ll pick up more books of this author.
