I am not a huge fan of student/teacher drama stories but I have to say that I really liked this one. There was more to it then just their story and I think that was what I liked.
Camellia is super close with her Dad, who is also her swim coach. They are two peas in a pod and things in her life are going extremely well. Until a horrific accident takes her Dads life and leaves her banged up. Her life is turned upside down and nothing feels right in her life. She is in a downward spiral and pulling away from everyone…except the new swim Coach that started at the school just before the horrible accident.
As you can tell from the synopsis of this book, he is the proverbial “forbidden fruit”. But out of a friendship something more is taking root. This book was angsty at times but in a good way and you were able to feel Cam’s loss and heartache as she is transformed because of it all. It was interesting to see all of her relationships change and transform as well…some for the good and some for the bad.
This is a quick, fast paced and emotional book and would be great for a beach read.
New York Times, USA Today, and International bestselling author, E.K. Blair, takes her readers on an emotional roller coaster with her books. Blair tends to drift towards love stories that are deeply layered with emotional angst. Give her a character and she will dig into their core to find what lies beneath.
Aside from writing, E.K. Blair finds pleasure in music, drinking her Starbucks in peace and spending time with her friends and family. She’s a thinker, an artist, a wife, a mom, and everything in between.
