When Drix was convicted of a crime--one he didn't commit--he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new Second Chance Program, the governor's newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor's daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn't may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle's parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix's messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can't imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves--Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence--and each other to finally get what they deserve.

Drix is your typical bad boy and he's living life fast and hard until one day he gets slammed for a crime he doesn't commit. Elle has everything a girl could ask for but her life isn't her own, she gets sucked up in her the political endeavors of a father she idolizes....yet he doesn't believe in her. These two will collide and development a friendship that will help these two lost souls discover themselves. 

Okay, so I liked the book but absolutely disliked the parents in this book. How they treated Elle and Drix for their own personal agendas just because they felt they knew better. They expect Elle to be so perfect that the poor girl can't find herself beneath all the pressure they put on her. They let so much happen to these two teenagers that it's ridiculous.There was one moment in this book that brought tears to my eyes but I won't spoil that here. The writing is slow-paced and the story is well written. Overall, it's an emotional read about friendship, love and growing up that I would recommend to fans of contemporary fiction. 


  1. You make the book sound interesting, I'll check it out, thanks.

  2. This sounds really good. I like the two kindof from opposite sides of the track....meeting and finding out about themselves.

    1. That's what I liked about the story the most.
