When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the new 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.
I loved this book, Elle and Drix are adorable, they both have concerns but they try to be strong. They don’t want to be what people are imposing on them but to find their own way.
Elle isn’t used to obeying her parents on all subjects, the pressure they put on her is enormous, she must be perfect in all circumstances but she’s only 17 years old. She would like to be able to do coding studies but her parents feel she isn’t mature enough, they are certain that she doesn’t know what she wants and that the decisions they make are right for her. What they don’t understand is that she feels trapped, she loves her parents but the perfection they expect from her is impossible to reach. She does have some repartee but she cannot use it because it’s not the kind of thing to do for a girl of her kind, who needs to be beautiful and shut up to help her father’s political career. I loved her, she doesn’t let herself be, she likes to collect wounded animals, even if her parents are against it.
Drix has been looking for himself since he left the juvenile detention center, he doesn’t know who he is anymore and he wants his second chance. When meeting with Elle, he realizes that this is the only person he likes to talk with and that she makes him feel alive again. His family consists of Holiday and Axle, they all have the same father but not the same mother, it’s Axle who has custody of Holiday and Drix because their parents are nonexistent in their life.
I loved their meeting and all the rest of their relationship that is slowly evolving but surely. Drix and Elle are attracted to each other from the beginning, Drix tries not to crack because Elle’s father has his future in his hands but the attraction is stronger than anything.
She’s very close to her cousin, Henri, who lost his parents when he was young and it is the parents of Elle who have collected and raised, Elle considers him as his brother. Henri is the only one in her family who realizes that she’s unhappy.
Drix doesn’t only have his blood family in his life, he also has Dominic his best friend, and Kellen his younger sister. Their father is a filthy first, Drix’s family has always been there for them, so Kellen and Dominic are also part of the family. Drix also made a friend in the juvenile detention center, Marcus, who is now also part of the family. In a sense, it could be said that Elle collects lost animals while Drix collects lost children. They all have a huge heart and they all deserve to be happy in life.
Quick Word: A story of love and second chance to put in all hands.
