Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels there’s something missing.
Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life.
Ayden has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted by the Gregorys, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott.
As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden’s past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested.
**A novel about Ella and Micha’s daughter and Lila and Ethan’s son from The Secret Series. However, this series can be read on its own.**
My *****5 Star***** Review
I’ve been a fan of Jessica’s since her Fallen Star series. I haven’t read all of her books because I swear she can put them out faster than I can read them. I will say that this is my favorite since the first book in the Secret series, which is coincidentally related to this one.
This is a short book and ends a bit cliffhangerish. You’ll definitely be left looking for the rest of the story! I’m so glad I only have to wait a week for the release of Raveling You, the second book in the series.
As a result of the speed at which Jessica puts out books, I’ve felt some of her recent books still needed quite a bit of editing. I was pleased to see that this book was better edited. I still found an occasional mistake, but it was minor and rare.
I fell in love with both Lyric and Ayden. Lyric is so bubbly and it is such a wonderful contrast to Ayden’s somber personality. I enjoyed getting both of their point of views. Jessica does dark so well that you’d swear she has experienced everything Ayden has. Ayden has had some experiences that were so horrible even his own mind doesn’t want to remember them, and you will feel everything he does. You’ll also feel his hope as Lyric drags him by the hand into a better life. It’s powerful, raw and emotional, everything I love in a book! Can’t wait for the next one!
