All's fair in love and football.
The Trio. That’s who we’ve been since birth: Nate, Leo . . . and me, Quinn. Our mothers met in prenatal yoga and became best friends, which meant that the three of us hit every milestone together, from the first day of school to the very first kiss.
We’ve always known that Nate’s a little different. He’s not as strong as Leo or me; he spent a lot of our childhood in various hospitals. Leo and I have been his unofficial bodyguards all our lives. I thought that would always be true.
But time moves on, and everything shifts. People change, and sometimes friendships fade away. High school pulled us apart: Leo’s suddenly the most popular guy in school, a football star and the object of every girl’s fantasy. Nate and I are just people he used to know, the ones he left behind.
Of course, since I’ve been in love with Leo from the time we were eight, that stings a little.
And to complicate matters, I know that Nate is hung up on me. I see the look in his eyes. I wish I could say I felt the same, but I don’t. It's getting harder and harder to keep him in the friend zone, though.
Then Leo and I were thrown together again, sticking up for Nate. I was surprised Leo came through for us and even more shocked when he kissed me. Me! Am I finally getting my chance with Leo . . . and will it come at the risk of losing both my best friends?
***This is Book #1 of a trilogy, and it does include an unresolved ending. ***
When I finished this book I was lost. I wanted to rip Nate apart piece by little piece. I wanted to beat the hell out of Leo. And Quinn, I wanted to smack her too, but then by the very end of the book, I just wanted to cry and hug her bc I understand all too well what she's going through. By the way, I LOVED THIS BOOK. It's definitely different from other books that Tawdra has written, but in a good way. I'm going to be thinking about this book until the next one releases. Def a 5 star story.
Nate, Leo, and Quinn are the three musketeers! Inseparable. Best friends until the end of time. Then hormones come along, high school comes, and things never stay the same. Nothing ever remains the same. Life is never that simple. This book is so realistic. Maybe more so to me because I was basically in the same spot as Quinn. I relate to Quinn's character in so many ways it's scary. This is a wonderfully written, heartfelt story that will make you cry, scream, wish bodily harm on the characters, and then make you want to just hold them and hug them. Tawdra definitely knows who to emotionally exhaust you with her story. It is well worth the read and I know the next book in this trilogy will be so worth the wait.
