Lowen Seely has a criminal record to prove it. Determined not to follow in his father’s footsteps, he fights instinct and tries honesty. But hunger becomes painful, and bills are due. Forced to choose between what is right and wrong, the boy from the hood learns abiding by the rules is nearly impossible when corruption is in your blood.
Falling for an outlaw has changed everything.
Poesy Ashby is the definition of ride or die, even when it means turning her back on freedom. The girl from the suburbs gives conformity the middle finger. Bonnie and Clyde have nothing on her love story.
On the run with consequences in the rearview mirror, Lowen and Poesy accept the truth: they are the bad guys.
But can they get away with their crimes?
Jen and Roxie’s Review
“There’s a boy who loves a girl…he might think he loves her more than she loves him, but the truth is they love each other the same.”
How far would you go to take care of the ones that you love? Would you steal, beg, kill? Sacrifice your future to somehow stay afloat in the present? This is the heartbreaking journey of two people who were dealt a really lousy hand in life and how they fight to survive.
Being raised on the wrong side of the tracks will give you very few choices.
Low grew up in the gang infested poor part of LA, his father is in prison for life, so it’s kind of expected that he follow in his footsteps. Bad decisions and shit luck lead him to violence and crime early in his life.
“Unlucky to have fallen in love with a criminal, Poesy’s nothing more than a side effect of my bad choices.”
Poesy gave Low her heart the moment he looked in her eyes. She knew he was “the one”.
“This boy was the first person to ever make the girl feel beautiful and loved.”
They were in it for life. But life can be cruel. Low and Posey face one obstacle after another, all the while desperately clinging to their love for each other.
“Magnetic warmth simmers under our skin, luring us together in an unbreakable bond. It’s tangible… breathable… heart-stoppable.”
One bad break after another lead Low and Poesy to make a life altering choice. They see no other option and can’t think of another way out. They choose a life of crime and continue to surge forward to somehow create a life with a picket fence, family and a happily ever after.
So many emotions were felt while reading, anger, heartbreak, sympathy, and all the while you are devouring the entire book. It’s best to go in blind, trust us, once you start you won’t be able to put it down!
This story will have you gripping the pages, your heart racing as you travel on this journey with Low and Poesy. Mary Elizabeth wrote an incredible story that will leave you hungry for more.
