My first book from the author was a pleasant surprise!

Scarlett is a heroine that many girls can relate too. Being a curvy girl at high school is usually a reason to be teased about and sometimes bullied too. The bullying that Scarlett experienced in high school resulted to a mental breakdown and her decision to leave her small hometown and move to New York for college. Now 5 years later she comes back for her twin sister's wedding. When she reaches the town's limits, a cop car stops her for speeding. The cop that stops her, is her high school crush, Ethan, and her biggest tormentor's brother. Ethan instantly recognise her, even though she's different. Scarlett now is more confident in her own skin and actually owns it! Seeing Ethan brings everything back and she's determined to show him what he missed.

There's attraction between them but Scarlett is reluctant to give Ethan more than one night. He's having none of it and he's determined to show her that he's worth it. Scarlett is not the only one that changed. Many things can happen in 5 years.

The book touches the sensitive issue of domestic abuse and how people are getting away with it. The author made a really good job with showing that even though someone is a victim of abuse can come out of it stronger and that there is help for everyone that needs it.
