When Leah’s ex-boyfriend Kevin betrays her in a horrifically public way, she leaves town to spend her last summer of college in a place where no one knows who she is, what happened to her, and what she did to make herself so vulnerable.
All she wants is a little peace of mind and some good surfing so she can regroup before returning for her senior year.
After his own tragedy a few years ago, Drew developed an entirely new and unique outlook on life and became a risk-taker, daring and dangerous, everything Leah wanted to avoid.
But a chance encounter forces her to let Drew into her life, little by little, secret by secret. He’s smart, funny, persistent, hot, and makes money in a rather unconventional way.
They share a mutual fascination and attraction, until her past with Kevin complicates her present with Drew, making Leah question her future.
Just as her life seems to be spinning out of control, Leah learns that sometimes you save someone by letting them save you.

My Review: 4 ½ stars
This was a book that makes you think. It makes you think about the good and bad in life. The choices you make when something happens to you can turn out for the better or sometimes, for the worse. This book is about a little of both. Leah has something happen that changes her life. So she leaves her life behind and begins new someplace no one knows her, and no one knows anything about her. She meets Drew and tries to blow him off, but he is persistent in getting to know her. As I said, the choices you make, make your life better or worse. Getting to know Drew was a good choice in my opinion. Drew brought Leah out of her self-imposed exile. He taught her things that she needed, and I believe she did the same for Drew.
The main characters were so easy to read. Drew especially, as he was so comfortable with himself and honest about what he wanted from life. It would make things so much easier if more people were like Drew. Leah, I definitely felt for that girl. But she made good choices. I’m really glad that she had a couple of good people that she could count on and talk to. I loved that Leah was a surfer. I enjoyed reading about Leah and Drew, finding where their journey took them; being open to the possibilities. That takes courage. The storyline here was great, easy to follow and a pleasure to read. J.T. did a fantastic job with this book. I can’t wait for more.
