Goodreads Book Description:
To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

My Review:
I’ve never read a book written by Abbi Glines but up until I picked up Until Friday Night, I had heard that she was an incredible author and this book had indeed shown me just that! Abbi’s writing style and storyline for this book was absolutely beautiful!

West Ashby was very true to his character, strong on the outside but inside battling with the truth of his life of which no one knew until Maggie came along.

Maggie Carleton’s story was very emotional and quite interesting to see how her decisions played out in her life. Witnessing her choice of not talking and how she observed others was inexplicably amazing.

The connection/chemistry between West and Maggie is undeniable, from the moment they met there was a clear pull they had towards each other and it was beautiful to witness. I commend Abbi Gline’s on writing such a stunning love story and I am very excited to read more of her books in the future, particularly in this series.
