Summary (cr: goodreads)

"It's an emotional story that will take the reader back to those feelings that made the late teen years such a powerful time."

Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own. With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life.

Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker. Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age. Was it just high school, or was it something more?

My Review: (also in goodreads)

A story which revolves around Nicki Johnson and Adam Kincaid. This involves reminiscing about the past, of a time they weren't oceans apart. Adam is a British exchange student who is interested in Nicki who then was in an emotional turmoil after her sister's death. He helps her see the world more in a positive light and is there for her during those difficult times.

Their story is somewhat everybody had back in the teen years. Something to look back with a smile. Something to regret upon. Someone who got away. Some what ifs. The moment can forever be etched in your memory and heart. One memory that could be one of the reasons you are what you are today. I love the epilogue (after 15 years has passed) and if the sequel to this is true, I can't wait. After all, I wish there would be that closure or the happy ending.

Till the next read...
