Lucy is about to attend her college friend’s wedding and it’s starting to stir up a lot of emotions for her. She’s got a decent job, a sort-of boyfriend, and enjoys living in NYC. But she can’t seem to get her mind off Stephen. We learn about their relationship in college, the deep dark family secrets they’ve shared with each other, and now face the reality that they’re about to run into each other again at the wedding. Can she handle it? Can she ever get over him?
I knew I’d love this book, but not as much as I truly do! I did not want this book to end. I fell head over heels for these characters. The story takes place present day and flashes back to their college days. I think some people may find that it makes the story longer than it needs to be, but I completely disagree. You watch these characters grow and it’s so crucial to the plot! And it’s just so well written. I saw myself a lot in this book – through Lucy’s relationship with Stephen. All the feels!
