Summary: No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with freaky scars on her arms. Even Echo can’t remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.
But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo’s world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she’ll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
My Thoughts: This one was right up my alley! I loved it! I loved the plot, the characters, everything!
We are introduced to Echo and Noah who couldn’t be more different. They come from different backgrounds, different lives, different social circles, pretty much everything. But they are drawn together.
Echo and Noah have both had their fair share of dilemmas. They have gotten into some trouble, even though the trouble was different. Noah is in foster care, and Echo lives with a stepmom who used to be her babysitter. Awkward much?
Noah is trying to get his brothers back and Echo just wants to make it through her life and get away. They are paired up together for Echo to tutor Noah. Noah is known as the player and Echo is known as a freak after her incident.
All Echo wants it to fix her brothers car and honor his memory. She also wants everyone to quit looking at her like a freak. Noah is hot! All the girls know him as a player.
I liked getting to know Noah and Echo. They both had so many inner secrets and thoughts. I loved their personalities and how they mushed together. I don’t even know what to say about this one except that I loved every page of it. I loved reading about their pasts and their presents. I loved reading both of their thoughts and what they thought of one another.
I am so happy I read this one and it has become a favorite! I love these kind of novels! I can’t wait to read the next book. Different characters but I hope to see Noah and Echo again eventually!
Overall: Loved this one! I loved the characters, the setting, and the overall feel of the novel. I thought it was romantic but it had its problems and things weren’t always easy! Really loved this one!
Cover: Love it!!! Its hot! And sweet! And adorable! I think its neat!!
