I cried while reading the prologue of this. The tension between the two main characters starts off in the very beginning of the book. We find out that she was going off to college but she had just spent a summer with him as her best friend and it had become more of a romantic relationship but neither of them was willing to admit it. Then she kissed him. He didn't want her to stay on the ranch if she had dreams of more, so he let her go to college and tried to put her out of his mind for the 4 years she was there. Then she came back to the ranch, and for the last year it's been all either of them can do to resist their feelings and pretend like the kiss never happened.
If Andrew was the sweet cinnamon roll and Cristian the bad boy, then Will is the funny man. His banter about old crime movies and shows with Hazel was adorable. I was so glad that he already had a crush on her before she started making any changes in order to catch the eye of the swim Captain who she had a crush on.
Marissa is super into acting. When she sees Archer being ruthlessly and annoyingly flirted with, she pretends she's on a date with him so that the girls will leave him alone. She’s already caught him retreating to the music hall to get away from all the attention now that he’s recently single and available. One time she even hears him playing the piano.
Her passion has always been soccer, but when she gets roped into joining her brother’s crew team, her connection with crew captain, Ian Cruz, is undeniable.
As the best friend of my twin brother, Jamie is always there, always ready to torment me with his smiles, smiles I see in my dreams. Every memory, every milestone, he’s there. The only thing I can ever truly count on is our rivalry.
