One weekend together could change everything…
When her friend called to tell her about the funeral, Cassie wanted to say no. She had enough to handle with her own hollow existence. But she knew she should pay her respects to her old camp counselor…as long as her ex, Ben, wouldn’t be there.
Except Ben is there. Still gorgeous, still angry, and still able to penetrate her defenses with one intense stare. All the reasons they left each other in a flurry of heartache start to fall away over one long, snowy weekend.
But tough Cassie can’t truly open up to Ben when she knows confessing her secrets will leave her raw, defenseless. And the possibility of forever might not be enough to gamble on all the impossibilities of now.
This is the first novel I have read by Lisa Burstein and it grabbed me from the opening chapter. Hearts and flowers are lovely, but sometimes I just cherish a good dose of hurt, angst and the premise of broken being fixed. The Possibility of Us brought me that.
"Maybe we were too broken to put ba... ...more
Cassie Wick is an 18-year old loner, with a tough outer shell, and one best friend, Laura. Ben Claire is a musician, working with his brother, Drew, while longing for something more. A connection is made by Cassie and Ben when they meet at a camp, and they find meaning in their lives and all is r... ...more
This book just proved me once again how much I adore Lisa Burstein’s writing. There is that certain something in this book I can’t describe but anyways, The Possibility of Us is just so, soo good!
I have to admit though that I was a little bit sceptical about the book at first. I mean, obviously,... ...more
When Ben Claire and Cassie Wick meet again, in unusual circumstance... Cassie finally understand what's her truly feeling and what sacrifice that she's willing to give to get what she really wants.
The story just about 3 days of Cassie and Ben's life... but somehow... the feeling is so deep...
SO. MUCH. LOVE.
Seriously. I'm such a lucky girl to have beta read this. <3
This one is really 3 1/2 stars. I didn't realize going in to it that it was a sequel to a book in another series (Dear Cassie) and maybe I'd have rated it higher had I known this and read that book first. A couple of the things that caused me to rate it a little lower may have been made more clea... ...more
I have really enjoyed the books in this series, and I really liked Cassie's character. She's very abrasive, but that's what I like about her. She's been hurt, she's hurt others, and she doesn't quite know where to go in her life at the moment. She has things that she needs to overcome and move on... ...more
After reading Dear Cassie, I felt good about the path Cassie was heading in. Then, I opened this one and my heart crumbled, just a little bit. I adored Ben, so my heart hurt a little to find out that things were less than perfect between them. But, in the end...I was a very happy reader.
What wor... ...more
The Possibility of Us is the continuation of Dear Cassie (read our review here) however, according to goodreads reviews you can read it as a stand alone. It don't recomed it though, seeing how far Cassie and Ben have come and even some of my fav secondary characters makes this book even better.
When Lisa Burstein announced she was writing a follow-up to Dear Cassie, I knew that I would have to read it. It's funny, before the announcement, I didn't realize how much I missed the characters, Cassie and Ben. But as soon as I knew there was more to their story, I obsessively checked to see w... ...more
3.5 stars I'll round up to 4. I didn't realize this was Book #2 in a two part series until I finished it. And, to be honest, I don't think I needed Book #1 to enjoy this one, which I did. Cassie and Ben met at a juvenile "boot camp" for kids headed down the wrong path (all of the boot camp happen... ...more
Cassie found out that her camp counselor passed away and her friend is taking her to the funeral. Ben will also be attending since he was at the same camp. That is actually how they met and got together. They have been broken up for several months now and aren't actually on speaking terms. Both a... ...more
““Will you elbow me in the balls if I tell you I can’t imagine my life without you?”
“No,” she said, “but if you make me cry, I defnitely fucking will.”
“You are my only, Cassie,” I said, touching her. :)high. I needed to say the words. I needed her to know I was all-in this time.
She took her hand... ...more
A quick read that deals with two troubled teens falling in love. Cassie's favorite word, "fuck" is used a lot, so if you don't like foul language you might not want to read.. I really enjoyed the strength of Cassie to deal with her problems. This is the second book in the series but I was able t... ...more
I really enjoyed this book. Light, fun, easy read that I read straight through. If language is an issue for you than you may want to pass on this one. If you can read past the language and see it as a shield the character uses then I recommend you read this one. It's a sweet story about how two s... ...more
WOW! Lisa Burstein did it again! Another WONDERFUL story about a troubled teen (Cassie) who finds that she can love and be loved!
A MUST read! :) ...more
The Possibility Review on K-Books
"Maybe we were too broken to put back together. Maybe we’d been too broken to ever put together in the first place."
Having absolutely loved and devoured Dear Cassie I couldn't wait to start reading The Possibility of Us. I absolutely needed more of these charact... ...more
"The Possibility of Us" by Lisa Burstein is the sequel to and picks up several months after the end of "Dear Cassie". Cassie Wick and Ben Claire walked off into the sunset in "Dear Cassie" and while their story was obviously unfinished, it did have a hopeful feel to it. When we meet them again in... ...more
I received a copy from Netgalley for an honest review. Cassie met Ben in a tough love sort of camp for troubled teens. They split afterwards and met again at the funeral of one of the counselors. Battling her past they struggle for two days to get their groove back by talking about issues and jus... ...more
