Through To You - Lauren Barnholdt

Summary from Goodreads:

It starts with a scribbled note in class: I like your sparkle. Harper had casually threaded a piece of blue and silver tinsel through her ponytail in honor of school spirit day. And that carefree, corny gesture is what grabs Penn Mattingly’s eye. Penn—resident heartbreaker of the senior class. Reliably unreliable. Trouble with a capital “T.” And okay, smolderingly sexy.

Harper’s surprised by Penn’s attention—and so is Penn. The last thing he needs is a girlfriend. Or even a friend-with-benefits. The note is not supposed to lead to anything.

Oh, but it does. They hang out. They have fun. They talk. They make out. And after a while, it seems like they just click. But Penn and Harper have very different ideas about what relationships look like, in no small part because of their very different family backgrounds. Of course they could talk about these differences—if Penn knew how to talk about feelings.

Harper and Penn understand their attraction is illogical, yet something keeps pulling them together. It’s like a crazy roller coaster—exhilarating, terrifying, and amazing all at once. And neither knows how to stop the ride…
Through to You is my second Lauren Barnholdt book and I didn't love it like I was hoping but I liked it. I like that books are doing alternating POVs especially when it involves a guy because I always want to know what they are thinking! Right from the beginning I absolutely loved Penn! I love his name, too! And the note he left Harper was adorable :) The book seemed a little cheesy at times and not as well written as I thought it would be, though. And alls I really cared about was Harper and Penn so it was annoying having the secondary characters in it. Harper's friend had a good storyline but then it got wrapped up really quickly and I was left hanging. The ending also seemed a little rushed but I liked that Penn learned about himself and what he wants and that there is hope, just don't give up!

Rating: 8/10
