Book Trailer:


You know how you dream and dream about what you want? Or you get excited about something that's coming up but don't believe it when it's time? That's me right now. I'm in shock. Ever since Jake arrived. I'm in a cloud.
I laughed to myself--how pathetic was I? I knew what I needed to do; I just needed to get off my ass and do it. 
If it matters, that'w why I'm here, and I haven't taken anything since yesterday and I'm sick. I don't wanna go back to rehab.  
Original Soundtrack:



Welcome to another wild ride with Jake and Aly! Aly is finally of age and is excited about moving to New York City with Jake. She can't believe she is finally on her own and free from parental rules, school responsibilities and she longs for her freedom with Jake. Although all her dreams are finally coming true, she is still scared of her love for Jake and his for her. Will these two be able to meet somewhere in the middle for their happily ever after? 

Both Jake and Aly are far from your typical romance story. They both have more than their share of issues and usually those issues translate into miscommunications and frustration in their relationship. That doesn't stop these two though. Jake knows that Aly deserves the best and he beats himself up every time he can't give it to her but he still does his best to try. Aly just wants Jake to be happy with her but she finds herself only barely surviving his constant ups and downs, his tour schedule and real life issues end up getting in their way at every turn.

This whole story has been highly emotional but this one takes the cake. I found myself trying to understand either character and sometimes I just couldn't wrap my head around either one of their decisions. These are seriously flawed individuals. If you are looking for sappy and clean romance, MOVE on! You won't find it here. But, if REAL turns you on, then you have come to the right place because Aly and Jake are as real as it gets! 

I still feel the same about the writing that I did in the last book, Ann Marie does a wonderful job at bringing her characters to life, so much so that you feel that you could know them. Her writing is so easy to get caught up in that you have to force yourself to sleep. 

The ending of this installment was so completely PERFECT! I just can't wait for the next one! I believe the ending is what sealed the five stars for me, having a perfect ending to an amazing book is just every readers fantasy. Thanks for fulfilling this readers dream.
