Unforgivable Secret (Breathless) by Izzibella Beau
Oh my gosh I love this book! I was only 80% of the way through it and had already recommended it to a couple people. It is a young adult novel dealing with some bullying, depression, and just the normal things high schoolers deal with on a daily basis while they just try to get through the start of adulthood. I think one of the things I loved most about reading this is that it felt completely real all the way through…No huge earth shattering twists and turns just real life and I completely appreciated that.
Ethan was captain of the soccer team, popular, good looking, and had the normal popular girls following him everywhere. When faced with a bet that has been around as long as the soccer team itself, he finds himself being forced to target the captain of the debate team. The smart girl, the one no one pays attention to unless their making snide remarks or making fun of her, the younger sister of one of the most popular girls in the school at one time. Ethan learns quickly that this will not be a bet that’s easily won, and finds that now that he is paying attention to this girl, things get very complicated in this popular guys life!
Morgan is the quiet one, the smart one, the one everyone picks on or just plain ignores. Society believes she should lose a few pounds, although that was only because she wasn’t stick thin. Her only goal is to get through her senior year and get away from all the crap and hopefully find a good school where she wouldn’t constantly feel like she was having to live up to everything her older sister stood for while she attended the same school, even though her sister was now in college, her presence was still very strong. She couldn’t quite figure out why the most popular guy in school, one that she would never even consider wanting anything to do with all of sudden has decided to pay attention to her. Could she be wrong about him, he seemed totally different than what she thought.
When things aren’t as they seem and a young girl is faced with an unforgivable secret, can she find it in her heart to forgive? Can a young man who has so much to live up to and finds many things to be not as they seemed be able to get past the extreme hurt he not only causes but feels deeply within himself?
Awesome story, and now I can not wait to read more from this author, her writing style flowed easily and I sincerely loved this book and did not want it to end.
