BLURB:Nico Medina’s world is eleven miles away from mine. During the day, it’s aplace where doors are open—where homes are lived in, and neighbors love.But when the sun sets, it becomes a place where young boys are afraid,where eyes watch from idling cars that hide in the shadows and wickedsmoke flows from pipes.
West End is the kind of place that people survive. It buries them—one at atime, one way or another. And when Nico was a little boy, his mom alwaystold him to run.I’m Reagan Prescott—coach’s daughter, sister to the prodigal son, daughterin the perfect family.Life on top.Lies.My world is the ugly one. Private school politics and one of the best highschool football programs in the country can break even the toughest souls.Our darkness plays out in whispers and rumors, and money and status trumpall. I would know—I’ve watched it kill my family slowly, strangling us foryears.In our twisted world, a boy from West End is the only shining light.Quarterback.Hero.Heart.Good.I hated him before I needed him.I fell for him fast.I loved him when it was almost too late.When two ugly worlds collide, even the strongest fall. But my world…ithasn’t met the boy from West End.

Nico is so much like home; like no home I have ever known."

This story was perfection!! I loved it so much, I was torn between wanting to finish and wishing it would never end, because it was so beautiful! It wasn't a simple romance, it was so much more!! Lately I’ve been reading a lot of sport romances and this one was the best! Everything in this story is special, original and unique!


I love Ginger Scott’s writing, as always she managed to have me mesmerized me and drowning in her story. One of the things that I loved about this one apart from the romance, is that behind the love story, we see the characters dealing and struggling with some serious issues that kids can face in a school.

"I'm a part of Nico's story.And he's a part of mine.I believe in him.More than I've believed in anything, and the enormity of it makes my chest hurt."

Nico and Reagan's romance is so sweet and pure, I had butterflies each time they interacted! They were so adorable together. I loved all their moments, they were so innocent, yet what they have was beautiful and realistic.Nico was mysterious,smart and so special.I loved him!Also the secondary characters are fantastic and they played an important role to the story!

"Even there, in black and white, he owns me in a way that makes my palms sweat and my nerve endings fire in anticipation.He's made me want to act, to be better."

This story is unforgettable! It's one of those that you will want to read again and again!!
