⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 3.5 out of 5
Cocoa is a senior in high school living in Los Angeles. She’s biracial and living with her mother who has been dating Matthew, from West Virginia. Cocoa’s world will be turned upside down when her mother accepts the proposal from Matthew, and they move to West Virginia before Cocoa starts her senior year of high school.
Maverick is a senior who rules the high school that Cocoa will attend for her senior year. His father is a well-respected judge in their small town. Little do the towns people know his real father. The man is pure evil and has made Maverick’s life a living hell. He doesn’t know the meaning of love or kindness. His two best friends are the only people who know what Maverick’s life has been like and the real father that has raised him.
The first few chapters were hard for me to get through. I’m not a fan of bullies but as I got through the chapters the story got better for me. I am a fan of dark romance books though and this book has that as well. Once I got into the book it was easier to read and I liked it. I found the change in Maverick to be refreshing and the fact that he got away from his hometown to find the better man that he could be was good. If you like young adult romance, bully, or dark romance, you should pick up this book. I give it a 3.5-star review.
