Twenty-one-year-old Sophia Ross has lived under the pressure of her parents expectations since the tragic accident that shattered their once perfect family. Determined to start over where no one knows her, she answers a housing ad on Craigslist and takes a job at a little bar in a town she has never heard of. All Sophia's looking for is a place to escape, somewhere she can hide behind her lies and keep herself distracted.
She just didn’t expect to be distracted by Corbin Kasey.
Twenty-five-year-old Corbin Kasey is stuck in his hometown, his job, and his life, spending more time covering for his Dad’s problems than trying to fix his own. To take his mind off everything he has the wild Kayla, his stable roommates, and the calmness of swimming in Mills Lake. He always thought it was enough to keep him from drowning in himself, until he meets Sophia.
Neither of them are prepared for their lies to be stripped away by a single kiss. But for Corbin and Sophia, the truth has consequences.

I liked this book. It really shows how much each person's decisions play a part in everyone else's lives. I don't think that we always realize how much the ripple effect actually plays havoc in our lives. This book shows 1 how small of a world it really is and you can know the same people and have no clue. It also shows that even if you think you are doing the right thing whether just surviving or trying to make others lives better your decisions can cause problems you never even imagined.
I like Corbin. He comes off as callous at first but at the end of the day he really just tries to make the best of the situation and wants his family to be OK. Sophia is just trying to survive and find her place in life. They both have a lot of demons they are fighting and need someone that they can finally be honest with. I like how the author shows that in a way all of us are just the lies we make up about ourselves. Different people see different versions of me....as in my closest friends get see a version of me that is a little more real than acquaintances.
I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. I really like it and I think you will enjoy it too so go BUY IT!!!
