If you’re into all the angst and secret keeping that NA romances have become then this is the book for you.  I’ve listed all the things I consider “hot buttons” for the genre above. I’m halfway through and the drama has just escalated again.  A lot of it could be diffused with heartfelt conversation. If you aren’t tired of the “You’ll stop liking me if you find out I’m not the perfect person I’m pretending to be,” plot device, keep reading.  This feels like it could be a start of  series, as there are a couple of people at the shops that would make good/typical main characters for more books.  

My copy needs editing some more before release.  It also needs to have it’s formatting checked. Many of the words have spaces in them, in the wrong places.

Goodreads summary:

An emotional love story that follows the touch-and-go relationship of Hayden and Tenley; two young people who desperately want to love and be loved but are afraid to completely let go of their pasts.

As Hayden and Tenley navigate their newfound but slightly unstable relationship, they want to trust each other, but Hayden is hiding a dark and shameful past that he doesn't ever want Tenley to find out about. And Tenley has secrets of her own that could make Hayden run away forever. When Tenley asks Hayden to put a beautifully elaborate tattoo across her back, the two form what they thought was an unshakeable bond. But when Tenley's past shows up on her doorstep, will Hayden stand by her side...or run?
