In this story, we follow Ella and Micha’s daughter, Lyric, as she embarks on a relationship (both friendly and romantic) with Ethan and Lila’s adoptive son, Ayden.
Quickly we see that Ayden has had a rough start to his life and desperately needs the love and attention that Lyric, Ethan, and Lila can give. He’s not used to having someone care about him and it takes some time to adjust. Add to the fact that Lyric is always so happy go lucky, it surprises him how quickly he develops feelings for her.
Lyric was reluctant to make friends with Ayden, but once she does, she knows that he’s going to be a life changer. She sees something in him that no one else sees and wants him to be the inspiration to not only her music, but her life. She will stop at nothing to make him happy again.
The relationship is similar to ones that we have seen in the past from Sorensen’s novels, but this story touches a bit more on the mystery because by the end of it, you still don’t know the truth about Ayden. But like Lyric, you just want him to be happy because the glimspes that you do see, make you see just how broken his childhood was.
While this book is a spin-off to the Ella/Micha series, it is going to be series on it’s on. As of now there are four books in the serie and we should see challenges come Lyric and Ayden’s way as they try and make sense of their relationship and the past that continues to haunt Ayden.
Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life.
Ayden Gregory has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott.
As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden’s past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested.
I keep my eyes shut, too afraid to open them as his lips timidly start to move against mine. Just a whisper of a graze. A heart-stopping brush. A soul-drowning taste. He
does it again and again, taking his time, erasing all the ickiness from tonight. As I absorb each soft graze, his tongue slowly follows, slipping into my mouth. I gasp, but still don’t open my eyes. I barely move. Can hardly think. And when he pulls back, gently biting at my bottom lip, I stop breathing all together.
