" It's because the Harper brothers have wild hearts."


Moving away from the city, high school senior Kensington Worth, is leaving everything and everyone behind when her family decides to move to the small town of Woodstock. Her only stability is playing piano, which she loves and excels at. So far her new life is going better than expected...except for her new neighbor. The boy is a jerk to Kensi, and seems to like giving her hell.

Tragedy occurred in Owen Harpers life when he was 5 years old. Since it's a small town everyone knows about it, and it has greatly effected his and his family's life and status. He lives wild and reckless and doesn't seem to care.
Things start to change when a new girl moves in next door.

At first a friendship blooms and soon they find themselves surrounded with catastrophes and loss. The two form a bond and are able to find the support they so desperately need within one another.

Though Kensi is Owens rock (and vice versa), he still pushes her away in order to save himself from the inevitable heartbreak he is sure to endure. How will Kensi convince Owen that she won't leave him when things get tough?

This was my first Ginger Scott experience, and it won't be my last. The lady has a talent for writing and digging up some major emotions through her plot and characters. I fell in love with the story and could really feel everything that was happening.

There were a couple of moments in this book, where I felt so much that I had to put it down and take a breather before I was able to continue. I was that emotionally invested with these characters. As mentioned in an update, there is a scene about halfway through were Owen faces his fears...and it totally gutted me. Even thinking about it now is bringing some tears to my eyes. His bravery, their actions, and his words during this was so emotionally powerful that I am still feeling the after effects.

I pretty much loved everything about this. The drama that happened was was done very realistically and didn't feel over the top. Not only did I love the MC's, but the side characters were endearing as well.

This may not seem fair, but the only reason I didn't give 5 stars, was purely personal. The book was amazing, but I tend to veer from the YA/NA genre. It's not so much that I can't relate, it's just not usually something I seek out to read.

Overall a beautiful story that brings out the feels. I would definitely recommend this heart warming/breaking read.
