Publisher's Summary

Taliesin Wick knows exactly what she wants to do with her life. Even when her house-flipping father puts their home in Austin on the market and moves the family to Pennsylvania, it's nothing but a minor wrench in the cogs of her dreams.
Then she meets Nate Thorne.
From the moment she first spied Nate playing guitar on his front porch, Tali was drawn to him. The sorrow in his songs, the deep sadness in his beautiful eyes...she can feel Fate pulling her to him.
Something haunts him. He never talks about the sins of his past, but she knows he doesn't trust himself, especially not with her heart. Tali can't imagine the sweet, loving boy she's come to know being the awful monster he thinks he is, but what if he's right? What if learning his secrets changes the way she feels about him?
Tali doesn't know if their whirlwind of bliss is just a summer fling, or something much more, but she does know falling in love with Nate is going to leave the kind of mark you can never erase.

Great Contemporary Love Story With Some Drama

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The characters were well developed and their personality very engaging.

The story is told in Tali's POV. She is a confident teen that just graduated from High School and is on her way to Pennsylvania from Texas. She has everything planned out until she sees Nate. The boy with the sad songs & hurt eyes.

They get together quickly & fall for each other fast but Nate is hunted by his past. Can he overcome his past and move on with Tali?

The story doesn't end with any cliffhangers. It is a HEA ending. A little drama & some serious subjects are dealt with towards the end. Nates secret is pretty heavy... But Tali is mature and helps him.

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life!

Loved the characters

Which scene was your favorite?

The epilogue was my favorite, I wish I had more of a look into their future but it was cute seeing where they were and what their plans for life were going to be.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved how mature Tali was and how she handled her life and Nate's secret.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this audiobook. The book is based on two young adults, one who had just graduated highschool and the other a year older. I really enjoyed the characters especially Tali and how mature she was about handling situations, usually characters her age annoy me at times. I loved that both Nate and Tali were nerdy with their video games and shared the same interests but they also had lives outside of the games.
