The Year We Hid Away (The Ivy Years, #2)
She’s hiding something big. He’s hiding someone small.

Scarlet Crowley’s life was torn apart the day father was arrested for unspeakable crimes. Now the shock has worn off, but not the horror.

It’s a safe bet that Scarlet is the only first year at Harkness College who had to sneak past TV news trucks parked on her front lawn just to leave town. But college will be Scarlet’s fresh start. Clutching a shiny new student ID — with a newly minted name on it — she leaves it all behind. Even if it means lying to the boy she’s falling for.

Bridger McCaulley is a varsity hockey star known for being a player both on and off the ice. But a sobering family crisis takes that all away. Protecting his sister means a precarious living arrangement and constant deception. The only bright spot in his week is the few stolen hours he spends with Scarlet.

The two form a tentative relationship based on the understanding that some things must always be held back. But when grim developments threaten them both, going it alone just won’t work anymore. And if they can’t learn to trust one another now, the families who let them down will take everything they’ve struggled to keep.

    4 StarsThis story is a prime example of why I love NA/College romance books. Where the first story in the Ivy Years series was light on plot and romance and was considerably angst free, this sequel had it all, with the added bonus of some impressive emotional gravitas. Scarlett Crowley...

    I really liked much of this novel. However, there were some revelations towards the end (regarding Scarlett) that seemed to come out of left field & which were totally unnecessary.... Oftentimes, "less is more." Unfortunatley, with this novel, I felt as if the author went overboard...

    This book made me ugly cry. Bridger. Gah. I can't even with him.Seriously though, Bridger was such a stand-up guy. All the sacrifices he made for his sister? He melted my heart. Scarlett, too. It's funny how a situation can be so different than publicly perceived, especially from the i...
