My Rating: 5 out of 5
I really enjoyed this story. It whetted my appetite for more in the world and I will be looking out for more of Courtney Milan. This story is about a boy who liked a girl and didn't want to be seen as less for his love for her so he does what any boy would do and teases her. Except he's not a boy he's a man and she's not a girl but a woman. He destroys her life and this story is how he fixes himself and saves the woman he ruined years earlier!
