✯Review✯Last to Know (Willow Creek #1) by Micalea Smeltzer


 He was just a boy.
And I was just a girl.
But if that’s all there was to the story it wouldn’t be very interesting, would it?

Up and coming band Willow Creek is back in their hometown for the summer. For the drummer, Maddox Wade, this summer was meant for writing music and playing gigs.

Falling in love was not part of the plan.

One look at Emma Burke and those plans cease to matter.

Emma is quiet and guarded. She’s still hurt from her father walking out two years ago. She doesn’t want to trust Maddox, but with his dark hair, smoldering good looks, and infectious smile he’s impossible to resist.

Together Maddox and Emma embark on an unforgettable summer of adventures and first love.
Everything is perfect…or so Emma thinks.

There are things she doesn’t know, and when she finds out the truth it might shatter everything she’s built with Maddox.

No one said love was easy, and for Maddox and Emma it just might be impossible.

This is a Young Adult book. The following books in the series will be New Adult

✯5 Heartwarming Stars!!✯✯

Where do I start? Oh yes. If you haven't bought this book yet then do it!Once I picked up this book I couldn't put it down. You will fall in love with both Emma and Maddox. There wasn't anybody I didn't like in this book. You won't put it down when you start then be mad when you finish it!!

Emma is quiet. She doesn't go partying. Instead she stays at home reads and plays the piano and even likes to write music. Emma is haunted by her past. Her father  left her and her mother and has never looked back. Emma doesn't trust easily. She has her mom and best friend Sadie and that's all she needs.

Sadie drags Emma to the festival in their neighborhood to see a local band Willow Creek. They're from their town and have become the next hot new band around. Even though they're not Emma kind of music she goes. But, gets out of actually watching them play. When the concert is over Emma realizes Sadie ditches her. Just as she tries to find a ride she runs into Maddox Wade.

Maddox is unlike anyone she's ever met. She is curious about this hot, fine guy with the pair of drumsticks sticking out of his back pocket. After talking and hanging out for a little while Maddox takes Emma home. That was the beginning for both of them.

Emma thought her summer was going to be mostly reading. Maddox thought his summer was going to be downtime from touring. Making new music with the band. Together Emma and Maddox come up with  a bunch of adventures they want to do together. The list went from one extreme to the other! It was both funny and cute the stuff they both chose. 

They start spending a lot of time together. Every time they were together I'd find myself laughing. Maddox has a way of making you smile without you realizing you are even doing it. He brought Emma's walls down slowly. Made her trust him more and more. Emma can tell he is hiding something from her. But, she's not sure what. She doesn't want to push or rush Maddox. Emma knows Maddox will tell her when he's ready.

Maddox and his twin brother Mathias had a very bad and heartbreaking childhood. Their lives got much better when they were rescued. Maddox has a better outlook on things then Mathias. Music saved them. Maddox knows he must tell Emma and Willow Creek. But, he's selfish. Maddox loves that Emma doesn't know who he really is. He's afraid if she knows it'll scare her off. Maddox just wants to wait long enough until Emma knows the real him. But, is it as easy as it sounds?

I promise you once you pick this book up, you'll be hooked! Micalea has  a way with words. She has a way with picking out the perfect book boyfriends. She gave me Trace Wentworth from Finding Olivia  & Chasing Olivia then was his little brother Trenton from Tempting Rowan. I swore no man was going to beat the Wentworth brothers. Until, Micalea gave me Jude Brooks in Saving Tatum. Now, we have Maddox Wade. 

I really want inside of Micalea's head. Even if just for a little while. She can have you laughing to crying very easily. Not many people can do that to me. But, Micalea can. There's a reason she's on best sellers list. Like, I always say. Micalea is that good! Last to Know is that good!
