Tasha: I nearly watched Cade Wilson die on that lonely stretch of road. He’s damn lucky just to be alive, even if he doesn’t realize it. I know he’s destined for bigger and better things, but I don’t mind helping him get there as he relearns everything he took for granted. Cade’s a good student, a real perfectionist; I can tell how much his stutter bothers him. But when he lets his kisses do the talking, everything else disappears. And one day, maybe he’ll be able to tell me that he wants me—as much as I want him.
Jessica Lemmon is a favorite of mine for the characters she writes. They are interesting and engaging without being heavy. The characters are dealing with real issues, and real struggles, but this doesn't overshadow the romance. It is a difficult balance, and one that she does very well.
This can be read as a standalone, however the characters from the first Lost Boys book appear in this one, as Tasha and Rena are friends. There is the smallest possible spoiler in the story, but it is not one that will detract from reading this book, even if you haven't read the other.
I liked how real all of the characters felt in this book and I was sorry to see it end...although I am hopeful to see Tasha and Cade in future books, to check in on them.
I recommend this book.
