Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Julia fell down on her knees next to his lifeless body, her heart filling with dread as she noticed the left side of his face was covered in blood. He had fallen off the motorbike, hitting his temple on a sharp-edged rock. His head injury looked really, really bad.
“Michael?” she whispered softly, putting a trembling hand on his forehead. “Can you hear me?”

Julia has been in love with Michael for years. He’s the hottest guy in school, and she can’t believe her luck when they finally hit it off during Senior Prom. Her dream doesn’t last, though: after a few dates, he callously dumps her out of the blue. Summer vacation starts with Julia feeling heart-broken and miserable.
But then she rescues Michael in the woods when he has a motorcycle accident in a heavy thunderstorm. From that point onward, her life is turned upside down. Michael has changed completely after the blow to the head that nearly killed him... and he wants her back. But why is he so different? And will she be able to trust him this time around?

Can the boy who broke your heart ever win it back again..?

My Review:
This book starts with Julia at her senior prom and how she wants to get Michael to notice her, well he does and she is on cloud 9 and then he takes her back to his place and they have a wonderful night together and then all of a sudden BOOM he wants nothing to do with her after prom. Now that just pisses me off, guys that know that a girl likes him and then they use them to get what they want (I will get off this subject before it gets ugly). But that incident does play a big part in the book though because Julia saves Michaels life when she find him in the woods, after that accident he changes and Julia cannot wrap her head around it and yet she wants to believe that he has changed, his a changed person but Julia is still a little weary of him.

I never really forgave through the entire book, I was just wanting everything to hit the fan, so Michael becomes the boy from the weoods, but is there another from the woods ‘lurking’? You will have to read the next book in the series to find out the answer to that question, but this part of the book had me cringing. It was freaking me the hell out and I did not know what to do with myself, the book is about Julia and how she falls in love but with a kink and twist to it.

My Rating:
