BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

The beginning of this book made me feel a little disconnected from the two characters Nikki and Zack.  Nikki is in Texas dealing with her mother’s death while Zack is in California wondering if his so called girlfriend is the same girl that she used to be.  But it didn’t take long for me to start really getting into the characters and wondering how it was all going to play out.

After the death of her mother, Nikki finds out that she has a sister and makes it her sole goal to find her.  This includes moving to California and meeting the handsome Zack.  I found their playfulness in not speaking to each other adorable when they first met, even if they were running track on a Saturday morning (I mean, who runs on a Saturday morning?)  And their playfulness continues to where they both start feeling like life exists after losing someone so close to them.  They both started to grow again and Zack started to ‘walk among the living.’ Then…..

Bam!  Keeland and Scott throw another curve ball that just messes everything that I have come to love.  It was quite brilliant how it all came into play and how each story and person was connected and it is not discovered until the end.
