After our first kiss, he moved away.
After our first time together, he confessed it wasn't his first time.
After buying me my first drink, he said he was with someone else... but still loved me.
Now I'm staring at two pink lines on a pregnancy test... and the number he gave me to call?
It's been disconnected. Great.

The blurb, the cover, both caught my eye and I was hooked.
My first book by this author but I think I will have to read another book because these characters frustrated the hell out of me.
When I read the blurb I thought it was a childhood friends to lovers romance, the guy left for whatever reason then she finds out she's pregnant, does he return years later finding out he's a dad? That's a question I was eager to know.
What I didn't expect was two teens who fall in love and the girl is so head over heels with him that time and time again she is treated like a door mat, he goes off brooding about his life or being a musician she wakes up to another note and he comes back whenever as if it's all OK to just up and leave whenever too and shes like "oh hi honey your home" walk all over me kind of thing. Sarcastic? But that's how it made me feel. Sorry but I don't like reading about women with no backbone, loving someone doesn't make you a weaker person and Rose deserved better.
I was enjoying the book at first, I didnt like the present then past part how it was written, I would have preferred a journey from teens to present day.
Even at the end Foster still couldn't redeem himself and commit fully until the 11th hour and by that I mean the last page.
The concept of the story is OK, a guy who's a free spirit, a creative soul who runs whenever things get real while the girl just except him for who he is.with an acceptance that, that's just Foster that's what he does, he runs? I just hoped at some point, earlier at least, lessons would have been learned and I got to see a dramatic change in Foster. I didn't doubt his love for Rose but the plot could have been more stars if only it had been told a little differently.
