I received an ARC from Netgalley, by the publishers, for an honest review.
I loved this story.
I couldn’t put it down. I started it yesterday at work and finished it this evening. It was a world wind romance that was super painful and sweet. If you have read That Boy by Jillian Dodd, and enjoyed it, you will love this book.
If you are looking for an enjoyable new NA book to read that is about best friends falling in love and second chances, this is your go to.
We first begin the story with Olivia, aka. Liv. She sees the man on television, who left her broken hearted 5 years-ago. We flash back five years prior when the Sebastian (aka Bas) and Liv were in high school. They were best friends and next-door-neighbors. She had a major crush on him. The only way she could find out if Bas has feelings for her was to make him 1) Jealous and 2) ask him to teach her how to kiss.
It was quit clever on her part. After that, they were unseparable. The week before Liv’s 16th birthday, a terrible thing happened to Bas. This causes him to enter a dark emotional place. Do to the emotional baggage he can’t lift off him, he moves to England with his family. He doesn’t even speak to Liv or say goodbye; he just up and leaves. WHAT THE HELL! I mean if the love of your life just leaves without a word, who wouldn’t free fall into depression.
We get glimpse of things that happened in between those 5 years. Other relationships, drugs, alcohol, fame, college, etc. When Liv and Bas cross paths in England everything hits the fan! Now he is on a mission to win her back. I am glad Liv doesn’t make it easy for him. She makes him work for her affection.
My heart broke when she collapsed and said, “Why did you leave me?” Sista WE ALL WANTED TO TRULY KNOW! He was so selfish and only had tunnel vision when he left and he couldn’t see what was right in front of him.
What I enjoyed about the book.
Over all….. Should you read it?
I am giving Wonderwall 5 STARS!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
