“I’ve learned two invaluable lessons over the past four years. First, without strife, there’d be no push to preserve. And without perseverance, there’d be no joy in success. And second sometimes, if you dream big enough, all your dreams really do come true”
“You do know all that sugar isn’t good for you, right?”
“Fuck that “
“My girl likes gummy worms. We eat gummy worms”
“Off sides” his big strong hands gripped my sides, his fingers digging in as they slid from my bra all the way down to my hips. “First and ten.” His fingers moved to the elastic on each leg of my underwear, tracing them down slowly.
“Maybe a quarterback sneak” his middle finger slipped underneath my underwear and inside the wet folds he’d created
Note: I was given a copy of this eBook for an honest review; I was so excited to read this because of the summary and the cover is so HNGGG. This is a story about second chances and learning to forgive and be forgiven, also never letting your dreams go without a fight. I was sucked in from the first chapter and couldn’t put this book down, I was so glad because the past two books had me feeling meh and this changed it all around. It had me laughing, sighing, gasping, and it gave me many butterflies.
I loved Andi and her feisty character and her act of being loyal to those close to her even though she doesn't have many friends and I freaking love her determination to continue her dreams and NEVER GIVE UP. Drew is now one of my book boyfriends, I hated that he didn’t tell Andi sooner and how he was a jerk but I know why and how hard it is to face up to something that hurts you both. His determination to win Andi back is so swoony worthy and I’m glad his need for forgiveness and her ability to forgive allowed them their happy ending.
