Book Description:

When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.

Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.

Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.

Review :

Firstly a huge thank you for the ARC and allowing me to be apart of the tour :)

This book will give you something kind of different, if you have been suffering from a major book hangover or just need to get out a of a rut then I suggest you give it a shot because it was defiantly change things up for you. 

“Sometimes things are more complicated than they seem. Sometimes what you see isn’t so black and white.” 

Lacey spends most of her time looking after her sick mother, but her real dream is to sing and not just for a pop band but for opera but that can be a little challenging when you are from the Ghetto as people are less willing to give you a chance. 

One day out of the blue Drake the spoiled rich kid from the nice side of town finds his way into the ghetto and this is where he catches the eye of Lacey and in turn she also catches his eye and not just for her looks but also because she is gifted with the voice of an Angel. 

“I’m going to ask you out now. We’ve been chatting for a few minutes. Seems safe.” 

Drake lives his life feeling empty and he knows just the thing to try and plug the hole within him, but that could be a little more challenging then at first thought because Lacey isn't the kind of girl to bow down to his good looks. 

She was something of value. She was someone to be valued who had my complete respect. 

Drake and Lacey are from opposite worlds and if anything is going to happen between them then they will have to fight tooth and nail to get it but sometimes fighting just isn't enough. Can these two find some common ground or will they be forced to go back to their own sides of town and forget they ever met each other?

This book is the perfect beach read for the summer and would go perfect with a cocktail.

3.5/5 Stars for this read :)
