No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.
Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
My Review: It starts off with Echo, her dad and step mother in a counseling session, her step mom seems evil, selfish and wants to make everything about herself and her dad is a controlling jerk that doesn't appreciate anything Echo does but there is more to to story than you might think at first
Something horrible happened to Echo so horrible that she block out the whole experience but she scars to prove it but has no memory of how she got them but she wants to find no out needs to find out what happen that day. She lost her brother in the war and her mother hasn't been in her life for the last 2 years for a lot of reasons, but mainly because she is mentally ill. Then we meet Noah the hot stoner bad boy there is a lot going on in his life too he's been in foster care since his parents died in a fire and the foster care system separated him and his younger brothers after a incident with their first foster care parents. Now all Noah wants is to graduate and get his brothers back together as family and make sure that they are taken care of and safe. Echo and Noah end up going to the same school therapist that deals with serious cases ,their worlds collide in an unexpected way they are both damaged in very different ways yet they come together and heal each other.
There are so many emotions through around in this book one minute I'm crying the next I'm smiling and laughing. It switches perspectives through out the book and you get to know Noah and Echo and also get to see them get to know each other and how they see each other I also loved watching their relationship grow and I loved their amazing chemistry I just loved Noah and Echo's characters so much! I also really liked Isaiah and Beth. I thought Beth was hilarious and can't wait to read more about her in her story in Dare You To coming out in 2013
Overall it's an amazingly well written book with awesome characters and a sizzling romance story that is as real as it can get, you should pick this book up even if you don't read contemporary you should read this one!
