You’re like an addiction to me.
Only it’s not just physical, it’s in my soul.
On my heart.
I want you constantly.
I want you in my bed, in my life, all the time.
It feels like there’s never a point in time where I don’t think about you.
Want to kiss you. Hold you.
Wake up next to you.
I want to tell you every stupid thing that happens in my day.
When something makes me laugh, the first thing I think is “I can’t wait to tell Ember.”
That was actually the cutest moment ever.
This was a ...more

Plus, I was happy to see my faves from book 1 in the series.
A great, quick romantic read.
Bash (best name ever!) is swoony and awesome and Ember (equally awesome name, same as my first pony) is well rounded and worthy of swoony Bash.
There are a few deeper themes in this book about mental health, addiction and such. Which while not exactly usual from this author, were well done and fit the story.
What an impossible situation for Bash and Ember, to be dating already and then their parents (her mom, his dad) get married to each other. The family dynamics change and expectations change as well.
Thinking he's doing the best for everyone involved, Bash leaves.
It's now been 5 (or 6) years and Bash and Ember as back in each other's lives. They try to go on with just a friendship, but they soon find out they can't.
I didn't think it was fair of Bash's father to ask what he ...more
This book is about Bash and Ember. They fell in love in high school but, oh no Fate, their parents met and fell in love, too.
Their sacrificed their love for their parents' sake. But now, three years later, have they forgotten each other?
Sweet story. A little bit slow in some moments.
While the step-sibling trope is not my normal cup-of-tea, I clicked on this when I saw it available on NetGalley because I just really like the way Sariah Wilson tells a story. Something about the way she writes pulls me right in.
This book deals with more than just Bash and Ember's complex relationship. It touches on topics like depression and substance abuse with sensitivity, ...more
I would recommend to any romance reader.

The characters were believable, the dialogue was fantastic and the banter between Bash and Ember had me smiling a lot. The story also touched on some tough subjects in a realistic way. Easy, enjoyable read.
