They say that your school years are supposed to be the best years of your life, and that you should make the most of them because you’ll miss them when you’re all grown up. Up until Maisie Preston’s senior year, she would have totally agreed with that statement. Life was great, she had everything going for her, excellent grades, great parents, an annoying yet caring twin brother, and an impossibly sweet boyfriend.

Everything was perfect – that is until the arrival of Zach Anderson. A misfit delinquent that seemed to bring with him a lot of bad karma. Is it just a coincidence that his arrival marks a significant change in Maisie’s life? Up until senior year, life was perfect, but things seem to be going downhill fast.


I’ve been feeling tired lately. I thought it was because I am stressed out with work, but when I accidentally read a few paragraphs from this story, it dawned on me that I just need a dose of a good book. It’s been a week since I’ve last read and it made me hate work even more. In that instant, I decided to continue reading this book and get on with it, which mind you, left me awake at almost 2:00 am so I could finish this story. It’s just too intense that it won’t let me sleep peacefully without knowing what’s gonna happen to its main characters. And to get it even more exciting, tomorrow is Monday and I obviously have work haha.

After reading a few more pages from this story, a question reached my mind on why I am reading this again? I mean, unlike other stories, this one started, mmm.. how should I say it?.. it started too…cheesy? I mean, it’s obvious this couple can’t get their hands off with each other; I even thought it’s not going to be about teenage romance. But it was answered immediately when Massie’s (main female character) mother entered her room to wish her happy birthday and even found out that her “hiding” boyfriend spent the night in. As the story goes, it’s already apparent that they love each other so much that I even think that I had a bugos copy. That part should have been in the last chapter instead of its first chapter right? So to confirm my guess, I broke my rule and read the sypnosis of this book. I just found out that it’s the second book of Always You (Riley and Clay) and I can’t believe that this information didn’t even reach me!

After reading the sypnosis, I was enlightened and continued reading this book. Good thing Zack (insert deafening squeal here) came in just in time for me to be diagnosed with an overdose of “cheesy syndrome”. And in that instant, this story became more interesting, ayeiii. I’m not really into jocks, I’m not athletic so I can’t connect with them. What really interests me are musicians, especially those who play drums or guitar. I don’t know, I think they have that “magical” magnet that everytime they’re around, they just pull me to them. (haha, now I sounded cheesy)

Everything’s going great because of Zack’s arrival and the fact that Massie has a twin brother. Isn’t that fun? I love twins, especially twins with different genders. And the brother being so protective with his twin sister? Total winner!

I don’t want to talk about this story in complete order because this review might become a total spoiler and I don’t want that. I want you to enjoy this story like I did. I want you to experience the excitement that I felt and the deafening beat of my heart whenever Zack made a move or did something interesting especially to Massie. Imagining a bad boy who knows how to cook? And do a cool stunt like that? Isn’t that a total turn on? OMG! I am doing it again, haha. Sorry guys, I’m really this talkative when I like someone, and I know you know who that someone is, haha.

I actually have almost 50 things that I wrote in my notebook about this story, most of them actually about Zack, haha. And they all scream “spoiler alert” so I’m not going to share them in here to be safe. *wink

Well, based on the sypnosis above, I assumed that Zack is a freshman student. Good thing he’s not eh? Hehe. All of my doubts and questions about this story disappeared which made me give those raging five-star rating above. The style of this story is new to me, I even think that I’ve got a bogus copy because it started with a “supposedly” happy ending right? And above all, I love that the author added suspense and mystery in it. That was a surprise because I’ve been reading books from the author and all of them are about romance with a twist. I’ve read one with suspense, but it didn’t let me guess like sh*t like what Free Falling did to me. I can go on and on about how I love this story ya know, but I’m afraid you might fall asleep because it’s going to be long, so to cut it short, this story is worth every star I’ve lit above. (Hint: Sorry Zack for ever doubting you, ya know I love ya, mwahh)

The characters were great. I might have hated both Massie and Luke a little (Massie’s boyfriend) because of their “electrifying” love to each other that can be gross sometimes but all of the characters (especially the two mentioned) in this story appeared so real to me. Like her other books, this story will also give you some life lessons you can ponder. What a jam packed book eh?

The story’s plot, scenes, and line executions are great. I wasn’t even able to find some flaws in this story, no questionable scenes or lines, and all seems perfect. The words used in this story are so easy to comprehend, so those long-press thingy (kindle and moon reader users can obviously relate) isn’t necessary at all. 

As you can see above, this book is really worth it. Read it and be ready to fall in love.

Oh boy! Cheesy can be fun sometimes, but Zach sure sounds like an exciting bad boy. 🙂 Glad the book helped you from having the blues and eased your depressed feeling from school and work.

I both love and hate when I find an awesome book. I’ve had that slump like you where I was always tired, would fall asleep while reading (at like 6!) and thought it was just me not getting enough sleep. Then, just like you, picked up a different book and POW up until the wee hours of the morning reading. I’m glad that even though the book started off a bit cheesy, you still wound up really enjoying it. It sounds like a great read.

6 AM?! Wow, that’s quite a dedication. I haven’t found the book yet that would make me awake ’til 6 AM, and I really hope I could met that book soon. And yeah, it was kind of a surprise how I was able to enjoy this book that much considering how cheesy the first few chapters were. Well, books really can be surprising sometimes hehe.
