I lost her.
No. I threw her away.
She was my best friend.
I was never supposed to fall in love with her.
I was careless.
She was heartbroken.
I thought I was doing fine. But here she is, years later, forced to work with me, reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place.
And this time I'm going to do everything in my power to never let her go.
I enjoyed this book, but I had a lot of issues with Amy.
The plot was cute, the secondary characters were cool, and Daniel was awesome. I was kind of surprised that his "planned seduction" didn't bother me (because a similar thing definitely did in another book I recently read).
Let me go into it a bit more.

Series: Unknown, 2
Author: Wendy Higgins
Genre: NA Apocalyptic Romance
Publication Date: February 14, 2017
Being on the run in the desert means food and sanctuary are hard to come by, but Amber Tate and her crew are not about to give up. Not after having so many of the things they love brutally ripped from them by the unknown enemy who sent their world into an apocalypse.
Survival takes precedence, but once safe shelter is found, their guards fall and the emotions they’ve been holding in are finally released. Anger, insecurities... lust. Amber, Rylen, Tater, and Remy cannot escape it in their tight quarters. The past must be faced, and passions run even stronger in the darkest of times.
In the midst of unrest, their worlds are rocked again when the truth is made known about the war that’s ruined their lives. They thought finding out who the enemy was would give them the edge; instead it’s revealed terrifying dangers they never thought possible.
A golden hue of sunrise turned night into dawn. I sat on a small boulder, staring at the sliver of sun through trees of the Nevada parkland, the same spot where I’d been sitting silently in the dark for two hours in the cold. I couldn’t take Remy’s whimpering and soul-crushing cries each time she fell back asleep in the tent, venturing into nightmares of what she’d seen the night before. What we’d all seen. I might never sleep again.
Mom. Dad. Abuela.
I fought back another wave of debilitating grief that made my bones feel like liquid—like I’d never have the ability to stand again. Have to be strong. Have to be strong. I rocked back and forth with my eyes shut tight. I couldn’t afford to give in to the loss. If I did, it would consume me whole and devour my will to live. I took a deep breath in and let it out slowly.
I don't think I've read a book that has just made me smile without also making me frown about other issues (plot, characters, etc). I really had no complaints about this book. Well, maybe one. The plot was a bit generic, but the characters were so enjoyable, I don't really care.
Loved Cassie: she's awkward, smart, but has an adventurous spirit. She's considerate, goofy, and is such a sweetheart.
Simon is sexy as hell, he's smart, and is a great lover and brother. He makes one big mistake in the novel, but it's understandable, and I don't think less of him for it.

Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.
Itâs the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows itâs up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the clubâincluding Chevy, the boy sheâs known and loved her whole life.
But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, sheâs forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.
Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trustedâand if sheâs strong enough to be the one person to save them all.
âThe instructions of the English homework I didnât do hangs out from the top of my folder: Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both.
Story of my life.
According to my football coach, I chose wrongly on the two crap paths I had to face last week. I just ran into Coach on the way to English, and he ripped into me for my sorry decision-making skills when it came to me choosing to stand up for the Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club instead of a member of my football team.
I didnât just get my ass chewed out, his tirade made me late for English with no tardy note. Which is great since my English teacher hates late students like I hate riding my motorcycle in forty degree weather while it rains.
I round the corner, then peek through the small window on the door of my class. Ms. Whitlock stands in front of her desk in her patented white button-down shirt, gray pencil skirt, and dark-rimmed glasses. From the back row, my best friend Razor meets my eyes and shakes his head. Damn. That means sheâs in one of her moods where sheâs refusing to let anyone in.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
