Anna’s life reads like a check list.

Editor of the school paper (Check)
Volunteering time at the local soup kitchen (Check)
Ivy League (So close she can taste it)
Falling in love with a homeless boy (Not on the list)

Dean has a plan too. Survive. After being subjected to his foster father’s violent attacks, Dean made the hard choice to leave. Now he lives on the streets doing everything he can to get by, refusing to let people help him. But when he meets Anna, he realizes not everyone is out to hurt him.

Slowly, Anna and Dean let each other in, blending their two worlds into one. But when a series of events brings Dean’s world into perspective, he pushes Anna away. Not willing to accept the line that divides them, Anna sets out to bring Dean back to her. Her determination and faith in their future puts her on the tracks of danger, and he is the only one who can save her.

Tessa Marie lives in the same town she grew up in on Long Island, NY with her long time boyfriend and their fish.Under her real name, Theresa Paolo, she released her debut novel (NEVER) AGAIN, a NA romance, in Fall 2013 with Berkley (Penguin) and (ONCE) AGAIN released this summer. She is also the coauthor of the Amazon bestseller KING SIZED BEDS AND HAPPY TRAILS and BEACH SIDE BEDS AND SANDY PATHS, a YA contemporary series. She has a hard time accepting the fact she’s nearing thirty, and uses her characters to relive the best and worst years of her life. She put her love of writing on hold while she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Dowling College. When she’s not writing, she’s behind a camera, reading, or can be found on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.

I thought this book was just incredible. It talked about a subject that most people try to avoid seeing in real life and it did it in a beautiful way. I also thought that the way Tessa portrayed the situations that Dean got into, and just the way he reacted to everything was pretty realistic. I just really enjoyed the book. I thought that is was great and I think that it was nice the way Tessa Marie developed their relationship. She didn't have them meet and just fall into love like in a lot of books these days. However she actually took time for them to get to know one another and learn to trust each other as well. And not only Anna's relationship with Dean grows but so does her relationship with her mom and Dean's with the guy from the bakery (sorry I forgot his name). Well I don't know what else to say without giving anything away so I'll stop here but really you guys should go read this book because it really was great. Overall I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Now here are some teasers:
