They say roses are the most beautiful....

Gin Fielding is counting the days until she escapes the small-town life of Roper, Missouri, for college at NYU. She prefers to blend in, though she’s far from invisible. But when she protects a younger student from a bully, the spotlight turns on her in ways she never imagined.  

I say that every rose has its thorn....

The Friday-night lights shine bright on Chase Matthews. Roper’s golden boy, Chase can do no wrong, enjoying the small-town celebrity being the star quarterback brings. When Gin defends his little sister against a bully, he decides to lend her his star power and change her senior year in ways she never imagined.  

But maybe the thorns are part of their beauty.  

When Gin declines Chase’s invitation to be part of the elite Sweet 16, the repercussions turn both their lives upside down. But amid the chaos, Gin and Chase find solace in one another. Together, they confront the ugly truth - that sometimes, glory has a dark side.

This was intriguing. Not sure i would let my teenager read it but was very insightful, since there is no good with out the bad.

After reading the review, I listened to this story with open ears. I love romance and try to avoid stories that contain too much angst. I'm glad I gave this a try. This story contained lots of kids being bullied and I didn't mind as long as the hero or heroine is strong and confident. I loved that the heroine did not take crap from anyone and how she stood up to others. This story had that and I loved it! This was high school story but I didn't feel that way. I loved how the author developed Chase character. I didn't like him at the beginning but I can understand his POV. That said, I loved the narrators and they did a superb job! They are also my two favorite readers. I highly recommend!
