Lennox came blowing into town looking for a new start. She had big dreams and would do anything to make them come true.
Lennox was just what Mason didn’t know he needed.
But what happens when Lennox is offered her dream?
Will Mason let his life walk away from him a second time, or will he fight to keep her?

I have always been a sucker for a cheesy love story.. Give me a Rom Com over a horror film any day. As I read more and more I am realising I don’t feel the same way about romance in books as I do in films.
I have started to read a few books recently and I just couldn’t finish them. I thought they would be books I would like but I really struggled to enjoy them and get through them. I think for me when it comes to books Fantasy and thrillers are more my thing.
I did, however enjoy this book. It is a sweet love story told from the main characters points of view, which I think is genius. I do enjoy reading from the characters POV as I do think it gives the story a bit of an edge.
Mason and Lennox are great main Characters. I like how both characters have their fighter side and their softer side. Lennox isn’t this damsel in distress that always needs saving by her Romeo. She can stand on her own two feet and defend herself. I did at times forget how old mason was though as he doesn’t seem to act like a “typical” 19 years old.
The story is quite fast paced but you do get to learn a bit about the characters. As it is from their POV you don’t really get a lot of insight in to the stories and lives of the other characters in the book, which made the story between Lennox and Mason a lot more intense.
Although the synopsis states that had big dreams and would do anything to make them come true. That didn’t really come across in the book. It was very much about the relationship between Mason and Lennox. There are parts where it is focused on her career but it seems to happen more by chance than her actively pursuing it.
The frustrating thing for me is how dramatic it seemed.. without going in to too much detail as it would give the story away. the last chapter or so did get a bit too dramatic for me and after reading the synopsis for the second book I am not in any rush to read it as I do feel that it would frustrate me further..
I do really like Andrew’s style of writing and it really is a beautiful love story. I just don’t think it was for me.
All in all I give this a 3 out of 5
