Good story, a journey of self discovery.

Noah's looses his best friend Jake in horrible circumstances. With Jake's father they find something in his possessions, an engagement ring, unfortunately no one knows who is the intended owner of the ring, so Noah is given the task of finding the girl to have had Jake's heart, as Jake was the town's bad boy, the player, he was always partying and playing the fool. There were a number of contenders, so on Noah's discovery to find the girl, he learns a lot about himself.

Noah had been living under Jakes shadow for so long, but had to shine on his own. With the help of Maddie, the pastor's daughter he grows as a young man, and falls head over heels in love himself.

We find out who the intended recipient the of the ring is, and she does the honorable thing and gives it to the girl who deserves it.

This was a heartfelt story, really enjoyed it and the outcome!

What I liked most about this story is the male POV. This story is told in first person strictly from Noah's perspective, and I love getting the hero's thoughts and feelings in a story. Although I thought there were a couple of times that Noah mentioned or thought something I wasn't sure a guy his age would necessarily know about (like who Fabio is, for instance, but that might just be me), I really enjoyed reading his voice, and I think the author did a good job of voicing a seventeen-year-old senior in high school. I thought Noah sounded young but not too immature. He felt sincere but also unsure and uncertain at times. Really, just like any boy changing, growing up, and dealing with loss, Noah has some mixed feelings, some anger and regret and confusion, all mixed with some new, tender feelings of love.

You know from the blurb that Noah's best friend dies at the very beginning of the book, and for me, this story is more about Noah coming up age and growing up than it is about any full-on romance from the get-go. There is a romance, and it definitely plays a big part in Noah's change, but not only do we see Noah cope with the loss of his best friend, we also see him deal with his changing home-life, come to terms with his absent father, and reflect on his grandfather's passing two years ago. It's an emotional journey for Noah, leaving childhood behind and finding his place as a young man.

It's not until the second half of the story do we get more of a romance happening. I enjoyed reading that, seeing it develop gradually, and I would have loved even more of it. There are a couple of sexual situations, but I wouldn't say they are gratuitous or graphic. And overall, I'd say that the feeling of romance in the story is sweet and young.

Wow, this book surprised me. I was expecting a gentle read but spent a good chunk of the book in tears. I was blown away by the story and found myself completely immersed in Noah's pain. Katie Ashley really hits the emotions in this book, I was chuckling one minute and sobbing the next.

Noah finds out his best friend had died in a terrible accident. Whilst helping Jake's dad get some items from Jake's room they discover something that surprises Noah. Jake's mum asks him to investigate the discovery and the journey that Noah takes leads him to discover so many things about his friend that he starts to wonder if he knew him at all. Noah comes across Maddie and realises that she is special but can't quite workout what her relationship was with Jake.

I loved this book and will most likely be reading it again at some point in the future.

First of all, please make sure you take time to read the Dedication, it was so moving and sad and I think it sets the right emotion for the book perfectly, because in chapter one, Noah's best friend of 12 years dies in a horrific accident.

Noah is a 17 year old student who, after his Father not being present in his life for the last 10 years, is very close with his Mother. I loved the relationship he shared with his Mom. She was always there for him and really seemed to 'get' him. His Granddaddy, who he was equally close to, died 2 years ago and like most teenage boys, he thought he was expected to be a 'man' and not show emotion. So even at the age of 15, he didn't grieve for his Grandaddys passing and now in the present day he also has the loss of his childhood friend to deal with. I really felt for Noah and suffered through the hard times with him.

Then, when searching through Jake's room, Noah finds a ring and is left with not only trying to find out who the ring was meant for, but also wondering if he really knew his 'player' of a friend at all. When secrets start unfolding about Jake's life, Noah is left feeling hurt and confused. But through his darkness there is light, in the form of Maddie, the Pastors Daughter.

I loved Maddie. Yes, she was the goody-two-shoes, virginal, Pastors Daughter with the good grades, but she was also strong and not afraid to stand up for herself. She didn't mind being different to other girls her age though I think a part of her wanted to prove not only to others, but to herself, that if she wanted to, she could in fact be like her peers.
