Blurb from Goodreads:
She is pretty and
talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen;
gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen
in love. But... they are brother and sister.
Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than
siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward
mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents
to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the
stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so
completely—has also also brought them closer than two siblings would
ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their
clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know
their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they
cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward
an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this
devastating has no happy ending.
