Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin

The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was

 old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My

 destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny

 California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed.

 Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was

 possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who

 my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in. Slowly. They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders. Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts. I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well. Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage. Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine. And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun. Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer. Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get. Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught. A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little. But not Zack. Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin. “You look incredible.” He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

Erin's Review
This is more than just a story of young love. It's a journey of discovery for the young couple.  It's a story of growing up too quick and starting over. It's a story of believing that you are deserving of happiness when you think you are not. It's a touching story that will leave you full of hope. Written in duel points of view, it is necessary for the reader to get inside each character's head to fully understand their motives and thoughts. Both have best friends that are deserving of their own story, simply because of their antics. Keller is a riot and Ashley is a spitfire. Love them both and both balance out the seriousness of the main characters. After all, you need to laugh at life sometimes. 
You will love Nikki and Zack. They are what every young couple should be. Full of hope, full of life and unsure of the things life throws at them. 4.5 stars for me and a must read for anyone that loves a sweet, emotional YA story. 
About the Authors:

Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!

Dylan Scott
Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four. She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law. With a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of "argument" could actually be her job. A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn't ready to give up the law. Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach. She is co-author Vi Keeland's biggest fan.
