Overall star rating --- 5   

About the book:
Arianna Dubray is nothing like the girl she left in Baltimore. Once a Prada shoe wearing, Michael Kors bag carrying, on top of the world seventeen-year-old girl, Arianna knew that her life would never be the same when she got out of the car in middle-of-nowhere Montana.
Canyon Michaels is the keeper of his own dark secrets. Plagued by his family name, he's forced to prove the town wrong and make it on his own.
The last thing Arianna needs is a reason to stay, but with every passing day the decision to leave becomes harder. Once their paths cross nothing can tear them apart, other than the secrets that start to surface and the nightmares that soon become their reality.

The review --
I LOVED this book, one of the best I’ve read this summer. Ari Dubray is 17 and her and her family have been forced to uproot their lives and move across the country to Montana. With an abusive step-father, a mother who has checked out from the world, and a little sister who looks up to her Ari has a lot to deal with in life. Ari’s step-father trades in her nice car for a crappy truck upon arriving in Montana and when Ari drives it to school she’s unable to get it started to leave. Ari knows her family won’t come save her so she begins walking home and has a run in with her neighbor Canyon. Trying to save Ari from her step-father Canyon gets Ari to work on his farm and their relationship begins to bloom. Ari is counting down the days until she turns 18 so that she can leave but after a few says with Ari Canyon realizes he can’t let her go and sets out to change her mind.

I really enjoyed the mystery during the whole story about Ari’s past, and when it finally comes out it’s a shocker for everyone. This book has a little bit of everything, it’s hot, romantic, funny, and real. I quite enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more from this author!"
