Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim’s parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself.

With only two short months separating her from the future she’s built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah’s plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan.

Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface.

She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they’re both drawn to sad things. Which means they’re drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn’t realize is that a rip current is coming, and it’s about to drag her heart out to sea.

This maybe the most unpopular book review but…I didn’t really like this book much, although the book wasn’t bad either.

Meet Beyah who lived a poverty and hard life thanks to her addiction addited mother. So one day her mother was found dead from an overdose and Beyah’s life changes when she goes to live with her father and stepmother up in an affluent neighborhood in Texas, a father she barely knows. She becomes friends with Sara, her step sister and meets Samson who lives next to the house where Beyah lives. Soon Samson and Beyah engulf in a romantic affair…

This has some kind of a Hallmark vibe into it. I have to say, there were emotional and traumatic moments which was well portrayed in the book but overall, I felt nearly every single one of Colleen Hoover books has the same storyline. I have made up my mind to read all Colleen Hoover books to see why there’s so much hype on her books and while I think some of her books do deserve the hype (like Verity, Reminders of Him and It Ends with US), in my opinion this book (along with Ugly Love) does not really deserve the hype. Overall this book worth 3.5 stars!
