When you read a Jay McLean book, you know she is going to give you epic FEELS and is relentless with brutal moments that rips you to shreds. It doesn't seem possible for you to meet Josh, read how devastating his story begins, how he sacrifices everything for Tommy, and then how he begins to live again when he meets Becca., and not be affected. Their love story left us in emotional pieces but it was worth the journey to experience the raw and pure moments when Josh & Becca forgot everything and just allowed themselves to coast.

Synopsis and Purchase Link
It lasts only a second. Two if you're good.
Three if you’re really good.
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere
beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you.
It’s the feeling of being airborne.
The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the
greatest feeling in the world.
Then at seventeen, I had my son.
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.
Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.
You know what sucks about being in the air?
Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick.
Then kick, push, and coast away.
Other times you fall.
You fall hard.
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug...
And you become her poison.
"Do you have a safe place, Becca?"
I release a shaky breath, but I can't seem to look away. "Yes," I whisper. And I hesitate, just for a moment, from telling him the truth. "You."
