Once a cheater, always a cheater?

From the moment Will and Sarah first set eyes upon each other, they know that what they have is special.

There's just one little problem . . . each of them already has a significant other.

After flirting with danger, it becomes clear their passion is too strong to be denied. But even if they make their relationship official, there are plenty of challenges in store. Will leaves for college at the end of the summer, while Sarah faces her senior year of high school in their small suburban town. Long-distance relationships always come with their fair share of troubles—mismatched schedules, jealousy, and temptation are only the beginning.

Can cheaters ever change?

WHILE YOU'RE AWAY is a steamy story about a love triangle, a long-distance relationship, and learning the true meaning of commitment.

 While You're Away opens up with Sarah and her boyfriend Dave who have a band together and are playing at a party. And what happens after every show is that Dave revels in the fans that just can't seem to keep their eyes --- and hands --- off of him. Sarah as voiced her opinion on this before and he just can't seem to stop. So during this particular party she wanders off for some peace and quiet and runs into Will. Will with the reputation. Except this Will isn't the Will that everyone elses see's... no this Will is very different.

I was a little disappointed with this book because... it was way too short. I felt like it was cut down abruptly leaving you aching for the next book because you've just got to see what happens next until you realize... there are several books in this e-series. Uh... 

But the connection between Sarah and Will is just so electrifying that ahhh eff it, lemme just buy the whole series! Except I didn't. But I want to.

Yes this book contains a tiny cheating theme (by tiny I mean TARDIS tiny...) but it honestly didn't bother me. I felt like Dave was a douche and while that isn't exactly solid grounds to cheat on someone (actually depends on what day you ask me, why lie?) I can see why it happened. If anything, in my opinion, it was a long time comin. 

Ah. Now to read the second book knowing there's a good chance that too will have an abrupt ending. Oh my heart!
