Callie has never been really into the whole dating scene, and her uncle has noticed. So once she gets to spend the summer with him he sets her up with the son of his fellow college. This old guy who spends his days with books has good taste though and Callie finds herself swept into a romance with the extremely handsome August. These two love birds go on a journey following the star crossed lovers of an old book who's story has never been told. Finding the old story and creating theirs how long can Callie's first real romance last? 

A wonderful book that I just devoured! It was amazingly captivating and stole my attention. A relateable story that shows dedication to what feels right and to what you love, no matter if it be a book or a person. I loved their romance and the feeling of dedication the two had to each other and to their family.
