Riley Clifton can’t remember a time when she wasn’t a part of the Six, a group of rowdy boys who would do just about anything for her. Growing up alongside of six guys is never easy. Especially in high school. Falling in love with one of the Six? Even harder when Ace has a hold of her heart, and he doesn’t even know it.
Jake (Ace) Aceton has loved Riley for a long time, but has kept the secret oath of the Six. Riley was off limits. At least until after graduation. When he overhears Riley admitting to her best friend, Paige how she feels about him, Ace doesn’t let his chance slip by. Riley, in his mind, has always been his.
When her college plan falls through, and her future is left to the hands of fate, Riley finds herself scrambling to keep up with all the changes. But that’s not the hardest part. The hardest part is saying good-bye, especially to Ace.
Heartache, hard lessons, and a love deeper than her Alabama roots will threaten to crumble Riley’s world as she waits for Ace’s return. Will Riley and Ace’s love be strong enough to hold them together when life tries to tear them apart.
I always wanted a group of friends like this one in high school so I immediately warmed to The Six. The book did seem to focus on a few of the six more than the others, but as book one of a series I guess we will get more of the rest of the group in further books. I really liked Rileys position in the group, she was a mixture of mum (keeping control of them all) and little sister (with a whole load of big brothers to protect her). There were a few times when I felt like the six were a bit too over protective, but it wasn’t enough to change my liking for them.
