After a childhood filled with poverty and neglect, Beyah Grim finally has her hard-earned ticket out of Kentucky with a full ride to Penn State. But two months before she’s finally free to change her life for the better, an unexpected death leaves her homeless and forced to spend the remainder of her summer in Texas with a father she barely knows.
Devastated and anxious for the summer to go by quickly, Beyah has no time or patience for Samson, the wealthy, brooding guy next door. Yet, the connection between them is too intense to ignore. But with their upcoming futures sending them to opposite ends of the country, the two decide to maintain only a casual summer fling. Too bad neither has any idea that a rip current is about to drag both their hearts out to sea.
I knew when I saw Colleen had got another book out I had to get it. Colleen is definitely one of my go to authors now. I cannot get enough of her books. Beyah is the main character and she has not had the best life so far, many things contribute to that factor but when something unexpected happens she moves to Texas. This is where she meets Samson, they are both different people but they are very similar. I think that is why they connect so well. I love reading about how their relationship blossoms and also wanted to see if they could help each other. But is Samson hiding something? the descriptions of the places Colleen uses makes you feel as though you are there. The characters are all believable and Colleen writes certain topics with sensitivity. I loved curling up with this book.
