Summary
Doesn't matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It's over."

When Drix was convicted of a crime--one he didn't commit--he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor's newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor's daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn't may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle's parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix's messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can't imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves--Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence--and each other to finally get what they deserve.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Drix and Elle are from completely different circumstances. Drix spent time in jail for a crime he didn't commit, but he participates in the governor's new project, the Second Chance Program, to try to make a clean start. Elle is the governor's daughter, who has had the best of everything, but she is expected to be perfect at all times. When these two meet, they are instantly attracted to each other. They both desire, and fight, to be free from expectations and the control of others in order to be together. McGarry's latest, reminiscent of Melissa de la Cruz's Someone to Love (2018), features teens hemmed in by politics and obsessive adults. It features a strong love-at-first-sight element and should evoke acute emotions in the right readers, especially when they meet Elle's overbearing parents. Told from both Drix's and Elle's perspectives, readers will be spellbound by the main characters' love for each other and desire to be together. Another gripping read from McGarry.--Patterson, Savannah Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Striking and spirited, 17-year-old Elle Monroe is the only daughter of the governor of Kentucky, and her privileged, high-profile upbringing includes many expectations and little freedom. Hendrix "Drix" Pierce has led a life of poverty, disadvantage, and mistakes that have cost him. Elle and Drix meet by chance, and their chemistry is immediate, but the governor's reelection and Drix's plea deal for a crime he didn't commit threaten any chance of romance. As they get to know each other in secret, Drix desperately tries to improve himself and stay out of prison, while Elle attempts to better understand who she is beyond what focus groups, her parents, and their staffers think. Steamy sensual scenes accent ideas about love and respect while other key moments challenge notions about loyalty, family, and power. Elle and Drix narrate alternating chapters with a naturalness and ease that echoes their relationship; there's a smooth flow from scene to scene, and the story never flags. McGarry (the Thunder Road series) delivers a romantic tale with substance, and Elle and Drix are characters worth getting to know. Ages 13-up. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary & Media.
