From USA Today bestselling author comes the second book in the Lost Boys series of interconnected standalones. Holden and River’s emotional and heart-wrenching journey to love, redemption, and their happy ever after.
When You Come Back To Me by Emma Scott is now live!
At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…
Holden Parish survived his parents’ horrific attempts to make him “the perfect son.” After a year’s stint in a Swiss sanitarium to recover, he has vowed to never let anything–or anyone–trap him again. Brilliant but broken, he seeks refuge behind alcohol, meaningless sex, and uses his wicked sense of humor to keep people away. He only has to ride out one year in the coastal town of Santa Cruz with his aunt and uncle before he inherits his billions and can make his escape. Disappear.
Falling in love is not in the plans.
River Whitmore. Star quarterback of the Central High football team, Prom King, Mr. Popular, ladies’ man. He leads the perfect life…except it’s all a lie. His father has River’s future in the NFL all planned out, while River’s dream is to run the family business in the town that he loves. But his mother’s illness is tearing the family apart and River is becoming the glue that holds them together. How can he break his father’s heart when it’s already shattering?
River’s carefully-crafted façade explodes when he meets Holden Parish. A guy who dresses in coats and scarves year-round, drinks expensive vodka, and spends his free time breaking into houses for the fun of it. They’re complete opposites. River seeks a quiet life, away from the spotlight. Holden would rather have dental surgery than settle down.
Holden’s demons and River’s responsibilities threaten to keep them apart, while their undeniable attraction crashes them together again and again, growing into something deep and real no matter how they resist.
Until one terrible night changes everything.
Lost Boys is a new series of interconnected, coming-of-age standalones from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, coming in 2020
What is happening? I want to tell you this story was phenomenal, but that’s just a simple word to use. It was larger than life and beyond mere words. Sometimes, books are so extra in their poignancy, that it is difficult to articulate. It was the same with the last book and I’m thinking now this will be a trend so I will better prepare myself for the onslaught of emotions!
The story of River and Holden broke me for a few days. It wasn’t just the storyline; it’s how it unfolded and was told. This author has skills. She can write a growth story like nobody’s business, and she does it respectfully and accurately every time. The angst coming off these pages is gripping. This journey is unfathomable to me, but it happens. And that’s where the extra comes in for me. This is someone’s real life story and it breaks my heart, but it also fills it with hope because that’s what Emma Scott did when she unfolded this plot.
I can’t give you plot points on this story because the growth and struggle and love that are woven into this tale you should experience with fresh eyes as I did. You may think you know this story or you may have read a similar themed one in the past but, think again, because Emma Scott is magic. #TRUST
