From Wattpad phenom Sarah White comes a steamy teen romance about one girl’s quest to find herself after a traumatic breakup.
The only thing worse than having your boyfriend dump you is having him dump you for your best friend. For Everly Morgan the betrayal came out of nowhere. One moment she had what seemed like the perfect high school relationship, and the next, she wanted to avoid the two most important people in her life. Every time she sees them kiss in the hallways her heart breaks a little more.
The last thing on Everly’s mind is getting into another relationship, but when she meets Gabe in her therapist’s waiting room she can’t deny their immediate connection. Somehow he seems to understand Everly in a way that no one else in her life does, and maybe it’s because Gabe also has experience grappling with issues outside of his control. Just because they share so many of the same interests and there is an undeniable spark between them doesn’t mean Everly wants anything more than friendship. After all, when you only barely survived your last breakup, is it really worth risking your heart again?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really liked the sound of this one, but sadly I was disappointed. And 2 stars might be too high of a rating. Everly is a decent enough MC. Her inner monologue is a little rough, but I like that she was actively trying to get over the betrayal. Gabe had promise, but he seemed flat and the other secondary characters were all clichés. I didn't see the chemistry between Everly and Gabe and I think that's where I struggled the most. The writing is all tell, not show. There were scenes that went on way longer than they should have because every minute detail was stated. That got old really quick. Couple that with pages of long paragraphs and no dialogue and I started to lose interest. I will say that the open showing of mental health was nice. Anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder were all discussed, as well as therapy and medication. I liked that it talked about how feeling better could be a struggle and that you couldn't just throw some pills at a diagnosis. Overall, I can see how this might appeal to other readers, but it just wasn't for me. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen for providing the arc free of charge**
