**This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn’t suitable for readers under the age of 17.**

In love with a man on the brinks of greatness, Dee has her life figured out. The love they share is comparable only to the love they feel when they find out Dee is pregnant. Josh and Dee welcome their future together with eagerness as they plan a wedding, baby, and the upcoming tour for Josh’s band Wasted Circle. Big things are finally happening.

During Wasted Circle’s first big show, tragedy strikes leaving Dee alone. The life she and Josh planned for ends up being nothing but desolate promises. Unable to watch his best friend’s girlfriend drown under her own despair any longer, Adam steps in to help Dee cope with her loss and the upcoming birth of her baby. Adam is patient, kind and unrelenting. He stands by her side, never faltering despite his growing desire to be more than Dee’s supportive shoulder and the idea that he is betraying Josh. He refuses to give up on Dee and remains loyally by her side even when she admits herself into a psychiatric ward and he is left to father Josh and Dee’s baby.

But even sweet and sturdy Adam has his limits.

what i thought

Who doesn’t love a good emotional and a crazy roller coaster type of book?!

Dee has always had a rough life until meeting Josh. They were meant for each other. Josh is part of a band called Wasted Circle, and Dee and Josh’s best friend, Adam is part of that band. Dee has just found out that she is pregnant. But tragedy strikes and Dee can’t take it. She falls into a depression and if it weren’t for Adam to hold her along the way, no one knows if she would have survived it. With the love and support of Adam, Dee continues her life, but it isn’t easy.

Okay, Adam is one of the sweetest guys I have ever come across. He literally drops everything to care for Dee, and when the baby arrives, the baby as well. He has a special place in my heart for sure! Yessi Smith did an amazing job with side characters as well! We are introduced to multiple characters such as the HILARIOUS, Hayley and the wicked witch, Amber. I will quickly say, parents like Dee’s are ones I ABSOLUTELY despise. I don’t care what kind of excuse they come up with down the road. Plain and simple, you have a kid and it’s supposed to be your pride and joy. On a better note, Hayley was seriously hilarious! She is one of those friends, that while reading the scenes with her, you literally start dying of laughter.

I did however wish for more in the end, I was confused at first because I wasn’t sure what was going on. I would have liked to see an epilogue from Dee or Adam’s point of view. Why this isn’t 5 stars is because I felt the pacing was a little fast for me, but overall I’m VERY happy with the events that turned out. I’m excited to read more of Yessi’s books!
