I saw everything in that one second, everything he couldn't say, everything he'd ever felt.
"Don't let go," I whispered.
Noah blinked back emotion, and when his mouth sealed over mine again it was solid, real, like a promise. He explored my mouth, pulling me deeper and deeper, my mind exploding with the thoughts that this was Noah. That I was kissing Noah again. Touching him.
"Hold on to me," he said against my lips, gripping me against him with one arm.

I could've given the book more than 5 if possible. Seriously, this is one of the best books I've ever read. Not to mention one of the few in the Adult Fiction genre. I didn't actually realize this was Adult Fiction until I was deeply into reading it. It was the cover that got me. It maybe cliche for a romantic read but it spoke to me. The title maybe composed of just three words but it's really effective and suiting for the story.
The characters of the story are written well. The emotions of the characters are well expressed throughout the story. The story is just so believable, although it may seem ordinary to anyone, because these things happen to real people in real life, but that is what I liked about the book. That aspect made the story seem human. The emotions from the characters and everything is just too easy to pick up, that's why I was fanning myself often,trying to hide my emotions.
I loved the tension between Jules and Noah. It's really raw and exciting. Unlike other romantic story I've read, they've got a solid background story. For some reason, I stopped thinking that this is an adult fiction because it seemed kinda teenage-ish, but hey, what do I even know about being in love right? I haven't even experienced the damn thing. Going back, I really loved the story. I considered it as one of my favorites even though I wasn't halfway through the book. I even tweeted the author about it. Haha.
Another thing I loved about the story was Becca's character. Most of the time I'm dealing with teenagers being rebels or having some angst in YA reads, but this time I've got the Mom handling the teenager, which is like the other side of the coin. I haven't gotten some insight on how parents handle their kids like that, let alone a teenager, but this gave me a lot.
Also, I loved the closure they've got with Seth. I loved the idea of him being perfect and all that, to balance out the shitty things that happened to Jules and Noah's life. Surely, for me it was a happily ever after.
Overall, the book is really amazing. It's a great romance read, packed with
some light fun things on the side. I would gladly recommend it to everyone
out there looking for some summer read, especially to Moms. :)
