“I’ll be here,” Frank said, and it looked like he was trying -though not very hard- to suppress a grin.

I nodded but, not wanting to turn around, backed up until I reached the doorway, then took a big step backward and shut the door. I leaned against it, closing my eyes, wondering for just a moment if I was actually in a nightmare. Surely this qualified.


Collins went on, smiling wisely at me. “Sometimes, when the moment is right, remind me to tell you the story of my time in Disney jail.” He lowered his voice and leaned closer to me. “Spoiler alert – not the happiest place on earth.”

I’ve been meaning to read this for ages! And since Morgan Matson’s new book The Unexpected Everything came out, I decide to read this, than that after (apparently they are in the same universe).

So far, a pretty cute summer read. Emily definitely can get into some awkward positions, ha. Oh gawd, Collins, such a hilarious no-filter kinda guy.
