Ooh, this sounds like a super cute read and I’m so here for it. Midnight meetings? Yes, please. I like farm boys and rich girls who fall in love and Katie McGarry has completely won me over before so I have every faith that this book will be a good one. I’m also digging the book cover. The font, the picture, the couple in the picture, it all works for me and I think cute contemporary YA so I’m happy about it. This is me right now:
Jesse dreams of working the land that’s been in his family forever. But he’s cursed to lose everything he loves most.
Scarlett is desperate to escape her “charmed” life. But leaving a small town is easier said than done.
Despite their history of heartbreak, when Jesse sees a way they can work together to each get what they want, Scarlett can’t say no. Each midnight meeting between Jesse and Scarlett will push them to confront their secrets and their feelings for each other.
"A gorgeous, heartfelt journey of redemption and love." —New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins, on Only a Breath Apart
“Gritty and real, Only a Breath Apart is a story of hope conjured from pain, strength drawn from innocence, and love earned from self-respect. Beautiful, poignant, and fierce.”—Kristen Simmons, critically acclaimed author of the Article 5 series
