Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars







One of the BEST coming of age, new adult books I’ve read in a long time!

It brought back memories of my teenage years with a reverence and certainly made me wish I could go back in time and have a first boyfriend experience like Tate.

Tate Lemieux is the absolute best when it comes having a first boyfriend. He put his all into learning and making sure he gave the best experience to Audrey when the time was right to dive into learning each other intimately. He not only was adorable about asking questions, but in searching out his answers. This book was full of laughter and that first moment of passion, well, I felt butterflies in my stomach for the two of them.

Audrey has been in love with Tate for a few years, but afraid that he wouldn’t return her affections, she never said anything, instead remaining his steady friend. When Tate makes his own feelings known to her they comfortably switch into a relationship, but it’s only the knowledge that Audrey’s mother is sick and that Audrey’s future may now look different than it did just a short time before. How can Audrey ask for more from Tate when he leaves for college in just a few short weeks, when her own future hangs in the balance?

This book is so well written that my own face was flush over moments of passion, I truly felt like I was experiencing my first love all over again. I adored the relationship not only between Audrey and Tate, but also between Tate and his brothers. This is a book you don’t want to miss.



My best friend Tate and I have plans. Big plans.

1. Get the hell out of Merlot, California.
2. Ride trains around the world.

Though I have a secret third entry on the list of things I want to do …

3. Tate Lemieux

But when my family gets a life-changing diagnosis just as I’m about to graduate, all my plans look like they’ll go up in smoke.

Right when I finally get the chance to be with the boy I’ve always loved …

Will it end before it’s even begun?
