He was a boy that changed everything.
I didn’t know Parker O’Neil outside of the occasional smile and wink. The AMA Supercross racer came to our small town one winter, and I had no idea what he was capable of. How could I have known that he would change my life forever that summer?
Eventually, the occasional smile became a smile I grew to love and longed to see. The occasional wink became a gesture that made my soul sway and my heart ache. In the canyons of the desert, he showed me his lifestyle and his love.
What I didn’t see was the control he had over me. It was a power the glitz and glamor of his professional lifestyle had and eventually what tore apart any life I thought I knew.
In his world of banging bars and soaring jumps, there was no room for someone like me. But for five years, every time he called or touched me, everything changed again. It was a touch that could heal anything and a smile that could light even the darkest nights.

My absolute favorite thing about Shey Stahl other than the fact that she can write a damn good book, is that she writes books about some of my favorite things. Things I grew up around being a tomboy. Her books suck you in and come to life just like you're living the story yourself. Her characters are so relatable and real. This is another 5++++ STARS for Shey. She is an Author that I will read ANYTHING she writes, no matter what the subject is. I fell in love with The Racing On The Edge Series, then again with Waiting For You and now, I found The Boy, Parker O'Neil in Everything Changes and I have to say I have fallen even more in love. I promise he will blow you away!
Do remember being 17 with raging hormones, where everything was a big deal and the end of the world? How about your first love, that all consuming love when you're young and don't know how to guard your heart? Did you ever have a boy, The Boy, that was your everything? Rowan found her boy one summer, the boy that changed everything and this is their story....
This is the story of two teenagers that struggle with first love, ragging hormones, following your dreams and following your heart. To feel normal, to have normal and know yourself. I feel like I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I read this book, it broke my heart over and over again for Parker, for Rowan, for their relationship and friendship. At times I was infuriated with decisions made or not made and sometimes I was so confused I didn't know if I wanted to hug them or strangle them. I love Parker and Rowan and their story, even though it tore me up inside over and over again.
"Jealous?" Parker's eyes flashed with uncontrolled anger and shock. "Yes, I'm jealous. Crazy fucking jealous that I can't even see straight! But I'm also not going to stand back and let you make the biggest mistake of your life because I know you feel this too..."
