Life after high school still blows
Between a judgmental beauty advice columnist mom who sends clothes several sizes too small, and social media sex-shaming her senior year of high school, Faith Lacerna needs a self-confidence boost. Being a freshman at Fortis University in Silicon Valley will be fine, as long as she doesn’t attract attention. Except wearing oversized hoodies in sunny California isn’t the best choice for blending in.
When football jock Caleb St. John shows interest, she recommits to studying anything but the hot tight end. Caleb wants to lose himself in football, avoid his unfaithful ex-girlfriend, and – unlike his cheating dad – live his life with integrity. He knows there’s more to Faith than baggy clothes. Her humor and audacity spark more than Caleb’s competitive nature.
Faith doesn’t want to be interested, but Caleb’s kindness and sense of adventure has her hooked. She soon realizes she needs to confront her hurts and fears if she wants to embrace a relationship with Caleb and not let the past intercept her future.
Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Go ahead and grab the tissues. This emotionally charged NA romance will have you feeling all the feels on practically every page. I cried with Caleb and Faith. I laughed with them. I raged for them and at them. And through it all I fell in love with them. These two have one heck of a story that keeps you completely hooked start to finish.
I felt so much for both of them, But I particularly felt for Faith. She’s been through so much and the way it impacted how she saw herself was something I could relate to all too well. C.R. Grissom does a beautiful job of bringing Faith and all she’s gone through to life in a way that’s incredibly real. While the love Caleb and Faith share is absolutely breathtaking it’s wasn’t a magical cure all for Faith’s self esteem and trust issues. Her growth was true to life and the result of multiple factors and I can’t tell you how much that made me love this book even more than I already did!
