"The characters were flawed and beautiful, both of them haunted and sometimes trapped by their past. They were able to find joy and even love with each other." - Fictional Candy She’s here for the summer… Amy has a secret: no one's ever held her hand. She doesn't even know how to hug. Everyone thinks she's smart, but straight A's are way easier than making friends. Then she meets Dane, a golden-haired surfer whose easy charm and hot touch teach her what she longs to know. He lives on the streets… Dane lives for the salty breeze and a sweet wave, because that's all he has. He's been on the streets since he was fourteen. A drifter. Homeless. Then he meets Amy. Smart and accomplished, she's everything he's not. He wants to be the sort of man who deserves her. Except that means facing down his past--and that past might very well swallow them both. HOW TO SAY GOODBYE is an emotional full-length new adult romance novel with an HEA and no cliffhanger.
