Synopsis

 
Wilder Flint was the worst mistake of my life.

I should have known better than to fall for his cruel charms and cut-glass eyes, but I was good at calculus and bad at understanding people. He shredded my heart to pieces. I spent ten years forgetting Wilder Flint, and it took every minute. 

Of course he shows up again. He’s got the same blue eyes, the same cocky grin, and a brand-new swagger that makes me weak in the knees. I’ve got a summer research project in the Arctic and three canceled flights. Wilder’s got a plane.

But when we crash deep in the middle of nowhere, all we’ve got is each other. I hate Wilder. I hate him in the depths of my soul, with a fire and fury I’ve never felt about anything else. But that doesn’t mean I can resist him. After all, love and hate aren’t so different.

My Thoughts


This was one nail-biting, sweaty-palmed read. My interest was held throughout as I read the descriptions of the plane crash, the desolation of the crash site, and the aftermath as Imogen and Wilder are forced to make what are truly life and death decisions.

The character development was excellent. In their younger days, both Imogen and Wilder did things that were questionable. They did not act decently, and they did not manage the fallout. Ten years later, there is definite character growth and there is finally the chance to offer genuine, albeit late apologies. I thoroughly enjoyed the nerdy Imogen and while Wilder eventually got my tick of approval, the younger Wilder had me calling him some choice names on more than one occasion.

My one initial hesitation with this book is the amount of time it took for us to learn what really happened in high school. I was getting antsy that it might all have ended up a situation that was blown out of proportion, as teens are wont to do. It’s not, but the not knowing was a constant niggle in the back of my mind. Rest assured, this was no harmless teenage prank.
A highly entertaining read!
