Blurb from Goodreads:

Katie McGarry captivated readers with her "riveting, emotional"* Young Adult debut, Pushing the Limits. In this gripping novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it's worth crossing the line for love...

Lila McCormick first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives. But she never expected their surprise encounter would lead to two years of exchanging letters-or that she'd fall for the boy she's only seen once. Their relationship is a secret, but Lila feels closer to Lincoln than anyone else. Until she finds out that he lied to her about the one thing she depended on him for the most.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he's never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila's forgiveness-and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.

When I saw this free on Amazon I jumped at the chance at getting it as I loved the other two books in this series I needed to see what would happen in this book. I'm glad I did get it as I loved it.

I prefer this UK cover over the other cover. I love the way in which the wall takes up all of the cover it adds texture to a book and I have always loved that about a book. I looks interesting even if there isn't actually anything there.

I loved this book from the moment that it started although there was times when it was far too predictable. I do wish that it was longer so I could get to hear more about these two characters as their romance was so sweet and I would love see more. I loved that for some of the book was letters between Lincoln and Lila they really told a lot about each of them in such a short space of time.

Lincoln I absolutely loved as he was a great character he was so sweet even when he was going through a lot. Lila was nice enough but I did feel like she overreacted a bit. It did take me awhile to actually remember who Lila was and I'm still not sure I remember much about her things came back to me when we hear about Echo.

Overall I loved this book but the other two books in this series was better but I think that has more to do with them being longer, if this was longer I think it could have been just as epic as Pushing the Limits.
