My life is a mess.
 
I’m walking around with a black eye. My position on the hockey team is questionable at best, and if that’s not bad enough, I think I’m falling for my dead girlfriend’s best friend.
 
Every day, it’s a fight to feel alive, and yet, I drink to numb the pain. Everyone is standing back, watching me fall apart.
 
Everyone except Hannah. No matter how many times I push, she’s there to pull me back. She refuses to let me spiral any deeper. And after one kiss—she’s impossible to ignore.
 
Unfortunately, it seems she and I aren’t the only thing being kept a secret.

 

 

 

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

Under A Different Sky, things may have been different for Nick and Hannah. He’s a mess of a man following his girlfriend’s death, set on self-destruct. Hannah was Mia’s best friend, and is trying to help Nick through his grief. They both get one another in a way that others don’t, and they soon find that they’ve caught feelings. But are they betraying Mia by wanting to be together?

I’m a little tornn on how I feel about this book. I loved the heightened emotions of it all, but I thought that Nick was a bit of a jerk. Sure, he’s grieving. But that doesn’t give him a hall pass. The relationship with Hannah develops so quickly, I would have liked more of a slow burn between them as they transition from Mia’s best friend and boyfriend to something more. I just didn’t connect with the couple immediately and feel the chemistry between them. Which is why I’m only rating this 3 stars. Well, and it’s a cliffhanger. I hate not knowing that ahead of time, when I signed up to read an early copy.

This story was defintely gripping. But do I want to read the next book? I’m not sure. Reserving judgement on that for now. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
