This book is about about Charley and Jake, two teenagers who have big plans for themselves for the future including going off to college in Scotland and staying together forever. Charley and Jake are like ying and yang, peas and carrots, the hot to the dog…you get the point. They were absolutely perfect for each other until one day something absolutely tragic happens leaving Jake in a dark place and questioning their relationship and eventually ending it. Almost 4 years later, Charley moved to Edinbraugh to study abroad when she walks into the party and discovers Jake hanging out with his new girlfriend. Oh snap, it really is Jake. Charley instantly tries to throw up the fences to protect not only her but everyone involved. As time goes on so does the tension between them and this story is about them finding their way back to each other and if it’s possible to pick up where they left off all those years ago.
I’ve read a different book by Samantha Young and really enjoyed it so I decided to give this book a try. While It did keep my attention was fairly a quick read it wasn’t as great as her book “On Dublin Street”. I think there is a second book to go along with this one but I feel like I may not read it. I felt disconnected from the characters but absolutely love the theme of Scotland just wished she made you feel like you were there with them in Scotland, there wasn’t a vibe for where the book really was except naming the city they were in. I would of really ate it up if the author tied Scotland more into the story line with things such as landmarks, foods and traditions. I will continue reading more Samantha Young books because they are a happy feel good stories but might pass on the second book of this story.
