Wow - so many twists and turns I never had a clue whose side anyone was on!
Annie Harper has flown to Hawaii after her best friend Marissa Crandall said she saw their secret crush Terence Javier there. Once there she realizes that Terence is more than she could have imagined and the two begin a relationship. In Hawaii Annie meets Terence's daughter Erika, whose mother, Hannah, was once close friends with Annie and Terence wants to keep Erika. But life's not that simple and soon they discover that each of their lives, and the lives of their friends and past relationships are so intertwined that alliances are made and broken and no one is sure who they can trust.
This book was great and kept me at the edge of my seat as I never knew who I could trust. I really liked Annie but found she was so confused due to not having a proper childhood with her own mother that she in turn had so many doubts about herself. Growing up with Marissa's family she felt as though she had a new family, but it never felt as secure as she would have liked.
I loved Terence and found he was so innocent through everything and was kept in the dark way too much. I was blown away by his devotion to both Erika and Annie and that all he truly wanted was a family that he could love and devote himself to.
For the most part the rest of the characters I had love/hate relationships with, as I'm sure the author was counting on. I went from liking them to hating them and back to liking them and I never had a clue what was going to happen next!
Such a great job with the book and I can't wait to read more!
