I’ve always let my past dictate my future, letting it paint a picture of exactly what I don’t want to be. Where I don’t want to end up.
Drake Chambers is as arrogant as I am stubborn. A college quarterback, a national star. I thought he was just another one of those guys … the type every girl should stay away from, but he’s carrying more than the weight of the football team on his shoulders.
He unravels the feelings and beliefs I’ve held onto for so long.
I thought we had it all figured out. Two people who’d finally found their happily ever after, but the past always has a way of sneaking into the present.
With one decision, everything changes … forever.
Review:5 of 5 stars!
Lisa De Jong has done it once again... no Changing Forever is not as emotional as When It Rains, but come on it is hard to top that one. But with that being said, its still an emotional book. We are introduced to Emery who is Kate's roommate in college. (I loved that connection to Kate, Beau and Archer) She goes for a run her first day and ends up running into(literally) a very hot, shirtless guy(Drake Chambers). They banter back and forth for a little while and they go their separate ways. Emery hopes she doesn't see him again, because he was so full of himself.
Then the unthinkable happens. Not only is he in her speech class, but they get forced to become partners for a project. Drake doesn't want to spend any time on the project and pretty much tells her she is on her own. But for some reason the spark of disappointment in her eyes causes him to want to help her. So he agrees to meet up and go over research topics.
The longer they work together, the more they feel the connection, but they both fight it. Emery finds herself opening up to Drake in ways she never has with anyone before. But he only makes her feel like she isn't good enough for him to open up to her.
Just when things start to become better for both Drake and Emery something happens that causes Drake to push Emery away. I don't want to spoil any of the story, but this is where my heart is in my throat and had tears forming in my eyes. They both had to go through horrible things in their past and can't seem to catch a break.
Don't go into this story expecting the emotional turmoil that When It Rains had, but with open eyes and see 2 amazing characters truing to fight for their redemption from their past. Lisa's writing is fabulous and I can't wait for the next installment....which she has said will be another very emotional book.
