Flynn: At first we were almost strangers. But ever since I moved to New York, Amos was the one person I could count on. And together we were there for Poppy. (I mean, what kind of parents leave their kid to be raised by a nanny?) I just didnt expect to fall for himand I never expected him to leave us.Amos: I thought I was the only one who felt it. I told myself it was because we were spending so much time togethertaking care of Poppy and all. But that night, I could tell she felt it, too. And I freaked outyoure not supposed to fall for your stepsister. So I ran away to boarding school. I should have told her why I was leaving, but every time I tried, it felt like a lie.One missed flight was about to change their lives forever....

This review (and many others) can be found at Lost in My Library. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was...wow. I don't DNF many books (even though I've been doing it more lately), but I just couldn't make myself finish this one. I tried! Out of the three POV characters, there was one I had strong negative feelings about, one I didn't really have much of an opinion on, and one who I really liked, and I tried to keep reading for ...more
Step-siblings Flynn and Amos, as well as their little sister Poppy, learn of their parents' impending divorce. Flynn and Amos used to be great friends, but a spark between them sent them flying across the country, too scared to acknowledge what was happening between them.

I really wanted to like this book, but I guess you don’t always get what you want. I found this book on Goodreads awhile ago and wanted to see where this story was going to go. I didn’t connect with any of the characters and the story just didn’t seem realistic to me. Through the entire novel I just didn’t feel connected with any of character and I just wanted to know more about all of them. Parts of the story had me interested but I was never as invested in the characters or the story as I shou ...more
I don't know what to say, I'm just... well, I'm a bit confused and disappointed.

I received a review copy from PRH International in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.
THIS COVER IS GORGEOUS, and it's pretty much the first thing that struck me about this book. I've finished reading it, and it's STILL the thing I think about the most.
What I expected this book to be about: A Meet Cute fluffy romance set in an airport due to a delayed layover. (I somehow glazed over the fact that they were ...more
