Synopsis from Goodreads:

Cori Tisdale was on top of the world. A basketball star at Harvard and a promising author with a lucrative book deal.

A few years later, Cori’s life is falling apart. Her beautiful girlfriend, Kat Finn, has a shopping addiction. To make ends meet, Cori takes a part-time job at a coffee shop.

Just when Cori thinks her life can’t get any worse, an old crush appears out of the blue. Cori’s friendship with Samantha Clarke pushes Cori further into a dangerous abyss when Sam reveals two secrets to Cori and asks her not to tell a soul, including Kat.

Will this be the end of Cori’s and Kat’s relationship?

My Review:

Markinson’s writing is raw & very real. By the end you don’t feel like you’re reading a book, but rather that you’re sitting there right alongside them. As a detail oriented, visual author Markinson not only develops a strong and captivating plot but also sets the scene so that it’s easy to picture. At the same time, she doesn’t inhibit you from using your imagination or guessing what will come next.

The realism behind Markinson’s characters makes the entire story so much more intriguing. Her realistic portrayal of people combine with their hopes and dreams to create individuals that you can not only identify with but that you won’t soon forget. I appreciated their struggles as well. Life in general, and relationships specifically, aren’t always easy, but it does happen to us all at one time or another.

As a whole, this was a captivating and uniquely satisfying novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
