She had no right to want him. And no way to resist...Ruby Davis has a crush on her brother's best friend. At least, he was his bestie until the big betrayal. Now Drew is off limits to everyone, especially Ruby. She can't stand the way people treat him, or the way he feels about himself. It isn't right. And those deep green eyes are calling to her. Drew is scarred and damaged, and he has no business even looking at Ruby. But he can't help himself. She's beautiful, but he does his best to stay away. When they are assigned a school project, they become reluctant friends - even though they want so much more. She's torn between her feelings for Drew and loyalty to her brother. There's no way they can ever be together...but love just might find a way
This is a sweetheart story of two teens fall in love after disasters mess up their entire worlds. Ruby has the hugest crush on Drew. Now Drew is Ruby’s brother’s best friend and well Drew betrayed her brother, so now Ruby doesn’t think they could ever be together. Drew has a devastating background and it was very interesting how the author incorporated everything into the story. The story was a good nugget, but I feel like it was really lacking in character development. It was hard to fall in love with the characters, when it felt like they weren’t ever going where in the story. Ruby was not a character I liked very much. I feel like she let everyone walk all over her and that was very sad to me. I really don’t like characters like that and have a hard time feeling any sympathy for them.
