Looking back, I should have seen it coming.

Paige didn’t like that I went so far away to university. But it was going to only be for two years. She'd join me after she did her two years at community college. I thought we could swing that no problem. We were solid.

But she hated the distance. She hated not seeing me every day. She complained that I didn’t come home enough. She hated that for months on end, texting and phone calls were our only form of communication. It wasn’t enough.

She'd ask about the girls on campus. She’d gotten it into her head that girls were always making a play for me. I laughed and told her, even if that were true, I’d never cheat on her. She didn't seem completely reassured by that.

The bottom line is, Paige thought she was losing me. She wanted me home with her. But I could never imagine the level she'd sink to—the trap she’d set to make that happen.

And like an idiot I walked right into it.

And it’s a mistake I'm going to have to pay for the rest of my life.

So this novella sets up the full length novel Trapped, which I will be reviewing soon, and as with all novellas I will keep this review short as not to run anything for the readers. I honestly think the main reason why I gave this book four stars is because it reads like something that could really happen. I don’t know about you guys, but I have had friends who are in very similar situations. Young love often doesn’t work out the way you think it is going to, and life does certainly like to throw curve balls at people, so the authenticity here is what made me rate this book so highly.

So Paige and Mitch are young and in love, but they end up not staying in the same place, Mitch goes to college away from where they grew up and of course this is where things get complicated. Long distances relationships are hard on all couples, but especially young ones (in my opinion).

And of course this is where the trap comes into play, spoiler (or not if you have looked at the full length novels synopsis) Paige ends up pregnant. And let me tell you Mitch does not handle this well. I want to punch this dude in the face. In fact I knew a guy just like this one when I was younger, and to this day I want to punch him in the face. Paige never intentionally did anything, but don’t tell Mitch that, and why some men think that it is one-hundred percent the girls responsibility not to get pregnant is beyond me, I mean you were there having the sex with her dude, ever heard of a condom? But I digress, this definitely makes for a situation full of angst and reads like something I think a lot of people will be able to identify with. It’s a great set up to the follow up novel, so check it out.
