It was hate at first sight......


I hated Cable James McCaffrey.

He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict.

He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it.

He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.

Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else.


I was obsessed with Affton Reed.

She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.

She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire.

I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist.

In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it.


​The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.

Mad props for always having unique character names !! Love that - Affton and Cable - 

Now before I even started the story I was hooked because of the author's personal story she shared with us to explain certain things she assumed people would point out. Nothing gets me more than when an author shares their personal struggles and stories with us on top of sharing their work with us. It is commendable and really gives a connection to the author and the characters. Of course Jay C is a favorite author of mine for many reasons so this is just an added bonus !! 

When it came to high school life Affton and Cable couldn't have been more opposite one the outside. YET there was something they had in common that made attempting to save him or draw attention to his troubles something that Affton couldn't let go of. Now fresh out of high school ready to take on the world Affton is faced with the task of being the person Cable spends his summer with. Fresh out of rehab and not really sure if he is ready to stay sober Cable doesn't make it easy for the girl who always intrigued him despite the fact that she also ruined him. 

Tension runs high with these two at odds from the start. No love loss here and certainly no desire to be sympathetic or overly nice. They quickly find that spending time together isn't as bad as they imagined and the tension turns into a different type of tension. Not the best idea for them to mix pleasure with babysitting BUT stuck in close quarters makes it hard to resist. As you can imagine things come together , fall apart and then come together again before we have any resolve or HEA. I do have to say that Cable's actions after the incident may have been a bad choice yet it does make you realize that as messed up as he was there was always a decent person hiding inside him.
