Resolute. Firm. Unwavering
That was my love for him.
Steadfast for as long as I can remember.

As my best friend's brother, he ignored me before noticing me. He protected me, bought me my first beer, but eventually became my undoing. 

There was a time I would have died to get him to notice me, now I'd do anything to forget him. 
I'm not the one who can tame him, and he's not the guy who will change for me.
This isn't a story about falling in love, this is a story about falling out of love.
Unrequited love. 
And finding the strength to move on.
Here's to the steadfast.

*This is a standalone story that crosses years from YA into NA genre, due to heavy subject matter this book is for ages 16 and up. This is not your typical love story.*

Sami's Review:
Dakota seems to have it all, an affluent family and everything money can buy. Yet all she really wants is to beloved for who she is not who people want her to be. That should be the one guarantee you have from your parents yet her mother despises her and she is never good enough in her father’s eyes. Her form of escape comes in the form of parties with her best friend Violet and her brother MIscha. Mischa is a heartbreaker yet Cody can’t stop her infatuation with him. When things with Mischa take a turn she loses herself even more. Killian, her neighbor and best friend, starts to blur the ines of their relationship. When she is shipped off for her Senior year she comes home a different person. Yet still not happy. Sometimes happiness feels more like an illusion. I mean sure we may be happy in that moment but what is to guarantee that happiness will remain? Do we pass up what could have been true happiness at times while we are holding on to the happiness of the moment? This book is well written and the pace was well set. Watching Cody struggle to find herself is amazing. I truly hope there is a follow up to this book.
