ABOUT HIS REVERIE:
I knew from the moment I first saw her she was the one. The only girl I could ever want.
The only girl I could ever love.
She is light.
I am darkness.
She is innocent.
I’ve done too much.
She is good.
I am bad.
She is my every dream.
I should be her every nightmare.
We come from different worlds. She’s…perfect. And I’m…
Somehow she wants me anyway. So we’ll grasp at what we can. We’re going to make this summer count. She’s my secret. And I’m hers.
The problem with secrets is they never last for long. And when others discover we’re together, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep us apart. All I know is: I won’t let them.
Because Reverie Hale? She’s mine.
I jump at the sound of a soft female voice, my hand jerking so the hose splashes me right in the face. Muttering a curse, I drop the hose and reach out blindly, wrenching the faucet off with one hand as I swipe at my eyes with the back of the other. I hear the girl laugh and I whirl around, fully prepared to find some bratty preteen Hale daughter mocking me.
But she’s not a preteen. Not even close. More like around my age. She’s tall and slender, her long blonde hair falling far past bared tan shoulders. She’s wearing some sort of sundress or whatever you call it and she’s pretty much covered since it hits just above her knees though her arms are exposed since the dress is sleeveless. The sun catches her just right though, shining through the thin fabric of her skirt so I can see through it.
My gaze drops and all I can see is long, long legs through the shadowy fabric. Damn. Those sexy legs are endless. She clears her throat, like she knows exactly where I’m looking and what I’m thinking and I jerk my gaze up guiltily to meet hers, feeling like a jackass.
That’s when I notice her eyes are blue. As blue as the sky above us, and she’s so damn pretty, with delicate features and pink, pink lips, that I can’t seem to form words.
“Who are you?” she asks curiously. Her voice washes over me, sweet and melodic and now it’s my turn to clear my throat to get the lump out so I can freaking speak.
“Who are you?” I ask back like an idiot.
She smiles shyly and my entire body reacts, a bolt of electricity seeming to go through me. “I asked first.”
“Are you Hale’s daughter?” If she is, that sucks because holy hell she’s hot but yeah.
She’s completely untouchable if she’s a Hale.
Monica Murphy is an amazing writer. She creates such heart felt stories. She always manages to capture your heart and leave you wanting more.
Nick Fairfield is dealt a shitty hand. Betrayed by his best friend, deals with loss and left with no family to turn to. Desperate to keep a roof over his head he seeks out a job. Finds himself working for Reverend Hale and his family at their summer home. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love with the Reverend's daughter.
Reverie Hale has lived a very sheltered life. Daughter of a Reverend. Sent to an all girls school and has no experience when it comes to boys. That all changes when she meets Nick. She's sweet, innocent and shy but she becomes braver and bolder. She wants Nick and she will do anything she can to spend time with him.
This was such a great read. Young love. Pure innocence. Finding your self worth. Falling in love. Loss. Betrayal. Lies. This story takes you on a journey of a young man who finds himself wanting things he feels he is unworthy of and a young woman who is finding herself and taking risk she normally wouldn't.
Such a beautiful yet tragic story. My heart goes out to Nick. He really tries to do good. May make stupid decisions at times but he does with good intent yet he can't seem to catch a break. This is a definite MUST read. Definitely one you don't want to miss. Can't wait to read the next book.
