**4 'Honey' Stars**



Quinn is back on her hometown for the summer, taking a break from her studies, after the break up she had with Julian. It doesn't even compare, though, with the heartache she had after Sawyer leaving her, four painful years ago.

Sawyer is also back to town now and Quinn demands an explanation. She needs to know what happened and why he left without a goodbye, after years of being together and especially a night that would be so special for them.



We get a glimpse of that night four years ago and I have to say that I felt so sorry for her. I didn't know what happened to make him act like it, but I have to admit that I had suspected it and my suspicion hit home.

"I wanted you to forget me so you weren't feeling the same pain I was, while at the same time I hated myself because I wanted you to love me still, too."


There is struggle in the present between them, because Sawyer can't be with her. With problems at home, he's trying his best to keep everyone happy at his own expense. Quinn also deals with her own issues, with a mother trying to find her a good, rich man, while missing things from her jeep slowly pile up and make her feel spooked.

"She is so familiar. I remember exactly how our bodies fit together. And, yet, somehow she's also a stranger."


This is a lovely summer read. With many scenes that take place at the beach, sizzling hot scenes and the chemistry between the main characters palpable. Twists and turns that surprised me, but most of them were predictable to me, although I didn't enjoy the book any less, just because I had suspected a few things and exclaimed this quote more than once:



Yes, I did fell sorry for Sawyer, but I really wanted to see him working his way back to her harder. I needed to see him crawling. I thought she accepted him back to her life way too easily, before she even got the explanations she needed. Yes she loved him, I get that, but I thought she would be able to have some self respect. Judgy much? Maybe. But it's my personal opinion.



I also really liked the secondary characters, especially Gianna and Chase. I think they deserve their own book. Jess too. My heart was broken for Sawyer's younger brother. I wish we had seen one more scene with him in the picture. The last scene we saw him, left me feeling sorry for him. Plus I don't think he had a discussion with Quinn after the last incidents and I needed that.

A nice summer story with two teenagers in love losing contact and finding each other again, a couple of years later. If you're into this kind of stories, get ready for a fun, sweet and sexy ride.
