We were the ultimate example of that couple who can’t live with each other, but can’t seem to function without each other.

The minute I met Callum Strass at fifteen, I was a goner. We were the golden couple of our high school. The king and queen of prom, the sweethearts voted most likely to get married and have babies, and the absolute idiots who decided to attend the same college.

Because that’s when it all fell apart. The naïve, puppy love versions of ourselves couldn’t see the obvious cracks we’d had back in our hometown. But they sure revealed themselves when we started living in an off-campus house together with four of our other friends.

Within a semester, blow-out fights, jealousy, every-other-week breakups, and my abandonment issues had him bowing out. Not just on me, but on the house, too. Until our senior year, when his parents refuse to keep paying rent on two places.

So he moves back in, and I’m forced to live with my ex. The one who has ruined all other men for me. The one I still cry myself to sleep at night thinking about. The one who confesses, during a run-in in a dark hallway, that he hates how much he still loves me.

And when he starts dating again, he might as well plunge a knife straight through my heart. Despite our breakup, I’m on the verge of losing him for real this time, and possibly forever. The only option is to seek help for my deep-seated trauma, the thing that Callum always encouraged me to see someone about. The thing that eventually pushed him away.

Put two of the most driven, headstrong, and passionate people in any relationship and it’s bound to combust. We’ve always had that twin flame kind of love.

So, together we might burn. But we also might heal.

My Review

This is the couple that fought through the other stories, so it was one that I began wanting them back together, but not knowing if it was a good idea. And as the story went along, there were moments when I thought that maybe I should be happy for them if they had to find happiness outside of each other. But still, I had to root for them and hope and pray they could figure things out. Because sometimes it is nice to have a couple that has issues yet they are able to figure things out, and this author shows it being done in a healthy way. With therapy. Realizing that they have to stand up for themselves, but also at times realizing they have to take a breath and think for a minute before they react at times. I loved that therapy didn’t necessarily change the personality and make them into a whole new person, it just helped them to see how to deal with things, and deal with the past in a way making them able to move on.

I loved the realistic story this was. Also having time with all the other characters from the other books was nice as well. I love standalone series like this. I don’t know if there are any more, but I feel like Scott really needs a story. And not with that horrible girl from the comedy club who was so rude to Bevan.

About the Author

Author of romance novels such as Fool Me Twice and Love at First Fight, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, two children and ninety-pound rescue pup.
