Two hearts, one life-changing summer, and a long-awaited second chance... When Quinnlan Reynolds left home at 18, she escaped her small, Georgia town and her suffocating upbringing. She started a new life as a ballerina, and tasted freedom for the first time. But four years later, her first visit home turns tragic. Reeling, Quinn tries to piece her life back together again. But doing so is easier said than done when sexy Jonah Walker saunters back into her life. Quinn shattered Jonah’s heart once, so getting involved with her isn’t something he’s sure he’s ready to do again. He became someone he didn’t recognize when he left home. He’s spent the last years burying his pain by keeping everyone in his life at arm’s length. Now he needs to get to know his family again, and finally become who he wants to be. But neither Quinn or Jonah can stay away from each other, especially when old feelings resurface. Something is pulling them back together, and they can’t deny their chemistry for long. One Georgia summer could change both their lives forever, if they can work through their past to have a future together.

 In this new adult book As You Turn Away by Molli Moran, we get to see the good girl fall all over again for the bad boy.  They've broke each others hearts before, sad at times, but this book was super sweet.  I enjoyed seeing the journey these two great characters made together.

I will also say this, As You Turn Away was the perfect change for me, I needed something sweet to read and this was perfect for that.  Now let's talk characters, both Quinnlan and Jonah were both very well thought out and fully fleshed characters.  I really love how they both grow in this one.  You can see it as you read and that is really important for me when reading any book.  

As for the cover, it's one of the parts that I really loved, it fit perfectly and it's pretty to look at.  If this book was on a shelf, I would pick it up to see what it was about.  

Now as for the writing, Molli Moran didn't disappoint in this aspect either.  I enjoyed how the book flowed and everything seemed to fit perfectly together.  The only flaw I did see, which is the a tiny one, is that it was predictable, I knew in the end they would be together. Which oddly enough after reading all the dystopian books I've been reading, this was a great thing for me. 

For As You Turn Away by Molli Moran I am giving it a: 

Plot: 20/20
Writing: 20/20
Creativity: 20/20
Characters: 20/20
Ending: 8/10
Cover: 10/10
