 I started this book when I got up this morning and could NOT put it down till the end!!

Kasey has been in love with her neighbor Joseph forever. The night before he is to leave for bootcamp she invites him over for dinner while her parents away knowing they would not approve. Before Joseph ends up leaving that night they make a decision that will change their lives forever. Kasey's mother notices changes in her behavior and once she brings the situation to light they send her away to live with her aunt because they say no sinner shall live in their home. My heart breaks for Kasey that she has to go thru everything alone.

Kasey has tried several times to write Joseph a letter bc she has no other way of contacting him. After the last letter she sent comes back unread she realizes she will never see him again.

Joseph has always had a crush on Kasey. After the night they shared together he can't stop thinking about her. When he does finally return home and goes to Kasey's house, her parents tell him she has moved on and left for college. He realizes he will never see her again and decides he has no choice but to move on until one day fate decides to bring them back to each other. How will the two of them handle seeing each other after all of these years? Will Joseph be able to handle the secret Kasey tells him? Will they finally get their HEA?

I don't want to give away any spoilers so all I can say is go one click this book now!!! I loved the chemistry between Kasey and Joseph. That ending was PERFECT!! I would def recommend this book to everyone
