I'm not sure where to start at explaining this story...boy meet girl, boy has issues with grief and depression and is therefore a bad boy, while girl has issues with an ex and her mother. They have an attraction, but both have different ideas with what to do about it.
I found the beginning to be dark; the writing brilliantly done from Ryan's perspective. We find out how he became cold hearted and a womanizer. I could certainly relate to him from my own experiences. Tessa warms his heart slightly,

Ryan is dealing with a tragic loss and let's himself freefall. His best friend starts his intervention but it's the mysterious Tessa who has his icy heart thaw into a puddle.

Tessa is dealing with her own issues and is done with guys and summer love. Her ex has done a lot of damage.

These two are a trainwreck ready to collide into each other. Add in mean girls and boys, family and more drama that these two young people should ever see made this a really enjoyable read. It's an emotional merry-go-r

*I received a copy for review on tour. This does not affect my review.*

While this isn't often my 'go-to' genre, I've always been drawn to similar books, more so it seems in the summer and winter. This one comes out at a perfect time, and takes place at the beach, which adds to the 'summer feels'! I enjoyed reading about Tess and Ry's story, and found this to be a great weekend read!

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I enjoyed this quick story about Ryan and Tessa. He's a senior and his life is a mess. His sister was killed in an accident and he blames his parents. His life is winding out of control. Tessa is a junior and trying to get on with her life.n last summer she had a fling but he cheated on her. When she makes a fool of herself in front of Ryan and his buddy Barron, tripping and hitting her head, she's determined to have a better summer. There is ...more

It is heart crushing how Ryan came to be the man he is when he meets Tessa. All it can take is one look and conversation to pull someone in to get to know them but the biggest impact will be how you interact with that person that can determine how a person can grow with them. It will reflect how you see yourself and if that person who intrigued you can help you grow into the person you want to be and fall in love with that person and will it last???
I can not wait to read the rest of the stories

I could not finish this book. I read through chapter 3 and stopped. There were many grammatical errors. I can usually ignore spelling mistakes and other small issues, but this book had quite a few in the first couple of chapters. I could not get into the story because I felt like the author was telling us instead of showing us. It was first this happened, then this happened and then this and so on. The storytelling is not great. The plot could have been good, I just don't think it was fleshed ou ...more

I wanted to like this book, I really did, I just did not feel any real emotional connection to either main character.

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, so maybe you will empathize better than I did.

I did not hate it, but was not dazzled by it either.

This is the 1st book I've read written by Carrie Banks; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Wow. Just wow. When I started this I was into it. It was dark and sad and the writer is clearly very talented. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. Ryan is AWFUL. I don't get Tessa's attraction to him one bit. I'm really hoping book two is an improvement.

Good Read

This is a really good story. It does take you on an emotional journey in the beginning with Ryan. It does pick up when you get to Tessa's part of the story. A few times I wanted to smack Ryan. The writing is done well. I do recommend this book.
