For Charlie Preston “home” has never been the haven from the big bad world everyone claims; it’s just the place she sleeps at night. Music is her haven and, thanks to technology, her haven is always with her, making it the only thing she needs to survive yet another new school and finish her senior year.
Surrounded by a loving family and great friends, star quarterback Maverick Hardy is the definition of all-American, right down to his vintage muscle car and football. On track for a career-launching senior year, Maverick’s only focus is to win games and impress the college scouts. Or it was until he plowed into a captivating auburn-haired beauty trying her hardest to be invisible. For the first time in his life, football fades to the background and all Maverick can think about is getting to know Charlie better.
So close to finally breaking free from her father’s constant insults and criticizing, the last thing Charlie wants is to be noticed by anyone, least of all the most popular guy in school. Unprepared for the emotions Maverick's attention stirs within her, she can’t help wondering if there’s some truth to the songs she’s found refuge in for so long.
Drawing from the strength she's found in an unexpected friendship, Charlie steps from the shadows and finally starts to believe there's more to life than just surviving.
I love this book! One of my very favorites! I would recommend this! ❤️
Absolutely love it! So romantic!!
The characters had no depth whatsoever. The author may find it hard to realize, but when characters are written in terms of 1pov, they do not directly say what's on their mind and go on spouting facts about themselves.
Words were extremely overused and it felt like I was hearing the story from a wall rather than a person that had been through so much. The point of views kept switching so quickly that I honestly gave up caring on what was going on.
It's too fast-paced and immature. If Charlie was so insecure and so damaged from the bullying she received from her family, she certainly didn't seem like it. She was just another girl that didn't feel right about herself. Yes, I understand that she's a plain jane. So what? Why is that supposed to make me care? I wish there was more thought put into that.
One last thing. Her immediate close friendship with Tori was unrealistic. Their heartfelt conversations were too direct and everything they said to one another that they claimed to be funny really really wasn't. In fact, I don't think I cracked a smile while reading this. It felt like it was a sixth graders work rather than an adults.
