But just as their passion ignited, he left for college and never came back.
Until now.
Returning home after 5 years, Ben realizes Dylan has always been the one for him.
Can he win back her heart and finally find love under the orange moon?

You can read a sneak peek of the book at iBooks


 This book totally took me by surprise. I read it in one sitting, I just fell in love with it and couldn't put it down.

Dylan Mathews has been in love with Ben McKenna, her neighbor and her brothers' best friend, pretty much her whole life. They were friends but they had a special bond that only came to life at night, when Ben used sneak in Dylan's room, during those nights they were no words or caresses exchanged just the reassurance that they were there for each other, that is until Ben lives for college leaving Dylan behind without a word or a look back.

Ben McKenna had a rough family life as a child and teenager. His father, a prominent lawyer, left him and his mother and never returned, he provided financial support but other than a few calls to Ben throughout the year there was no contact between them. His mother never got over the loss and blamed Ben for his father leaving, prescription drugs and alcohol took over  her life as well as blaming Ben for his father's sins. Ben took refuge in the Mathews' home, they became his brothers, and their parents became his surrogate mom and dad. The only one he could never see as family was Dylan. Ben took off for college leaving behind his mother and surrogate family and for five long years he never came back.

Back in town now, Ben and Dylan's puppy love relationship blooms into a sweet loving one between a man and a woman. That is until tragedy strikes and sends Ben's life in a spiral of hate and self destruction.

I absolutely loved this book, is beautifully written and the characters have so much soul that they will will stay with you for days after you finished the story. For me this story is about forgiveness, we need to learn to forgive the past and the people that hurt us in order to live our own lives, in order to be able to love and be able to be loved in return. It is an emotional journey for Dylan and Ben but also for the reader who is holding up hope throughout the book for these two to work out. There were moments in the story that left me crying and feeling a deep connection with these characters, but they were moments were I couldn't stop smiling with all the shananigans going on. This is great debut book for this author and she will definitely be one to watch from now on. Please give this story a chance you will not regret it.
