Description

In the follow-up to Abbi Glines’s #1 New York Times bestseller Until Friday Night—which bestselling author Kami Garcia called “tender, honest, and achingly real”—three teens from a small southern town are caught in a dramatic love triangle.

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

    I absolutely loved this book, the author does a great job telling the story and going back and forth with the different views of the characters, and this book, just like the first one in this series tells a very heartfelt page turner!! Now I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!!
  • Amazing!

    I have read almost every book by Abbi! And she didn’t let me down with this one! They just keep getting better and better! Sea Breeze is my favorite but Field Party is coming in at a close second!
  • I love this book!

    Love these books. But I felt the ending was incomplete. Left me with more questions than answers. Hope the next in this series will be more complete and tie all three books together. I realize we are talking about young people going off to collage, but can really expand with a good sequel to it all that gives you something of their futures.
  • Amazingly written

    Loved it! Was hard to read at some points because of my own reality but loved every word. So much strength, kindness and forgiveness the world needs.

    AWWWWWW!!!!!! I just have so many feels and I felt like they were really mature like their decision making and solving problems they were faced with. As teens you are already confused and adding these roller coaster, jaw dropping twists WAS JUST INSANE!!! But I need more. Like what is Gunner's plan. How will he get rid of his mom and they are spending his money like water. Rhett needs to go to jail! Who is Willa's dad? Was Gunner's mom lying about being raped? Why didn't Brady say anything to Ms. Ames like Gunner asked. I really did love the story though and just uhhhhh dealing with death and the being unloved all your life is just heartbreaking. I wish Poppy would of had another outlet but I couldn't imagine being the cause of my sister's death. It makes my eyes tear just thinking about it. I looooooved the 3 nest friend's relationship but I felt sad at the same time bc they hid so much from each other. They felt like they couldn't share whatever anymore. Someone will always feel like the 3rd wheel. I'm excited to read more of the series and hope each couple gets a novella or maybe it can bc when they are adults after college and we can see where their lives take them. Just like Rosemary Beach ahhhhh yay so excited. And as always I hi lighted the whole book sighhhhhh Where was my Gunner in high school lol oh wait I went to an all girl Catholic high school hahah!

    I'm just disappointed. The ending should be everything, it just seemed unfinished.
  • Abbi why do you do this to me?

    I have read every book by Abbi Glines and this book is by far my favorite. I can't wait to read more in this series and hopefully all the boys get happy endings.
