Maddison is a survivor. An unstable childhood has taught her to depend on no one but herself, which is exactly how she’s gotten to where she is today. With a scholarship to one of the most prestigious schools in the country, she’s finally able to settle into one location until she graduates. But with foster parents hooked on drugs, Maddison is forced to steal to make ends meet, not only for herself but her foster siblings.
Kingsley is filthy rich. An only child, he lives with a mother who is dependent on alcohol, a father who doesn’t talk to him, and his chef, the only real family he has. His life changes when he overhears Maddison playing the cello. She’s snappy, hot, and wants nothing to do with him, and he’s obsessed. As they spend time together, she begins to lower her guard. She’s everything he needs, everything he wants, and for the first time, he’s able to tell someone about his past. Everything is perfect. Until he ruins it.
Maddison has had a really hard time of it so far in her life and the one thing that has made it better for her is Music. Maddison has been awarded with a scholarship at her school which has really saved her. The school she goes to if for rich kids and she doesnt really have any friends at all until she meets Kingsley.
Kingsley doesnt understand this connection he feels towards Maddison and they both try to fight it but they are connected in their pain and their past. Kingsley just wants to take care of Maddison like nobody else has before.
When this relationship is good its really really good but when its bad its disastrous.
I love all of the characters in this book and I am glad that this story touches on things that are not usually approached in YA books. I don't think I have ever read a story about a foster child before so it was definitely something different. Tilly (Maddisons sister) is actually the sweetest little girl I have read about.
I really enjoyed this and I can't wait for the second book in this series.
Thanks For Reading
