You were the glorified football captain, the heartthrob, the most popular boy in school and yet suddenly you vanish leaving all your horrid friends pointing the finger at me, circling like hungry vultures to see if I would break.
They just didn’t know that I already had. Daily. For months I cried for you. You. Broke. Me.
You taunted and tormented me for years until you finally convinced me to fall in love with you. You said, “Nothing can ever tear us apart.” And I believed you.
But you lied.
And then you left.
Without a word, without a touch, without a sound.
You. Just. Left. Right when my world fell to pieces, you lit the match and watched from afar, as what remained went up in flames.
So, if I ever do see your stupidly handsome face again, you’ll be nothing more than the boy I used to know. The boy who broke my heart and crushed my soul all in a single day.
Because Jacob Lynch… I have no more XO’s to give.
No longer yours,
P.S. I hate how much I still love you

I usually really like this author’s books, but this one was just OK for me. 🙈 I could be that I am just extremely bored with books lately and feeling burnt out, but I was expecting something different from this story. 😖 Most of it (70%) takes place in the past with a bunch of bullies, rapey football players, and mean girl cheerleaders. 😪 Which I am just so over at this point. 😫 I was far more interested in the present but with so little page space given (90% before they even reconcile) to that portion of the story it ended up feeling very underdeveloped and rushed. 😔 I honestly struggled to feel any connection between Rosie and Jacob. 👎 And more than one conversation was needed before they fell right back into each other’s arms. 😎 Anyway, it is what it is, and as always I am just one reviewer in a sea of many…
Hi there! I’m a mom and wife by day (and night), aspiring writer (in my dreams), and an avid reader (every day of the week). This is my little corner of the web to post about ALL things books. I live in Copenhagen, but I am a Canadian girl (born and raised) at heart.
