“Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.”
The day Lia Smart met Grayson Walker, eight years ago, was the day she fell helplessly in love with him. Coincidentally, it was the same day Grayson fell in love with someone else: Lia’s smarter, sexier, superior-in-every-way older sister, Alex.
Now, nearly a decade later, Alex and Grayson are long over and twenty-two-year-old Lia has finally managed to forget all those lonely nights she spent pining after her sister’s boyfriend. But when Grayson unexpectedly arrives back in town with Alex for Labor Day weekend and the two announce that they’re not only back together but engaged, all the feelings that Lia buried suddenly come bubbling back to the surface.
But Lia is no longer the awkward, gangly tomboy she was at fourteen. Far from it. And Grayson is conflicted by the lustful thoughts he’s now having for her. He knows he could never act on those thoughts, however. Grayson has always prided himself on being one of the “good guys.” But as the weekend wears on, he’s finding this new grown-up version of Lia more and more impossible to resist...
Heartbreaking and sexy with a dash of humor, Sophie Swift crafts a passionate, unforgettable tale about desire, growing up, and the kind of love that shakes us to the core.
Contains adult situations and explicit content. Recommended for ages 17+
Lia is the next door girl you like to hang out with. Alex, her older sister, was the one everyone wanted to date. I would be bitter too if I had a sister like that. Finally Grayson comes back to town...with Alex. Ugh, who wants to see the guy you have secretly been pining over since your teenage years with her sister. But Lia has to be there to see it all.
It makes you cringe knowing what Lia has to see. But despite Grayson being with Alex, you can't help but like him. It was till the last moments of the book that everything starts to change. Thank god! I would be screaming at my nook if didn't end the way I think it should.
I would give the book a 4.1. I actually liked Lia(Crazy, I know) and Grayson was meant for Lia. They have the kind of personality anyone would like.
