For Olivia Adams, the world has always been too big or too small. 
Forced to live her life caught between what she wanted for herself and the unfair choices and crazy obsession of those around her for as long as she could remember, Ollie has always felt confined and trapped. It was hard for her to imagine a future beyond the crushing control of those who wanted to make sure she paid the price for her role in a tragic accident that ruined several young lives. However, having no hope and living in a constant state of fear never stopped Ollie from dreaming of different ways to break free and how to reunite with the one person who always made her feel safe. Huck is the only one who ever made her feel like there was a place in his world, right by his side, that would fit her just right. 

The world has always forced Huck Snyder to be a guy who runs either too hot or too cold.
Unwanted and barely tolerated, his temper burned hot and bright, often leading him into trouble. After the accident, he was tossed out, disowned, and forced to fend for himself. Struggling to survive, Huck quickly realized the only way he would make it was to freeze out every single memory and moment from his past. Especially those surrounding Ollie. He allowed his heart to harden into a block of ice and refused to let anyone close enough to melt it. Years have passed, and Huck has adjusted to the constant cold that permeates through his new life. He was in no way prepared for the only girl who could ever control his inner fire to show back up. Ollie is on the run and doesn't seem to mind the chilly reception she receives when she shows up unannounced on Huck's doorstep.

Fire and ice no longer define Huck because when he's with Ollie, it's easy to remember that the temperature between the two of them has always been just right.

My thoughts:

Goldilocks is the latest book out by one of my favorite authors.  One of the things I love about her is that she isn't afraid to tackle tough issues.  In this case, we are talking about abuse of many kinds. This was definitely a tough book to read.  The things that Ollie and Huck both went through were horrific and really sad.  I definitely rooted for them to be able to find their way back to each other. There are a couple of twists, one I never saw coming.  My only complaint really was that I wanted a longer story.  I wanted more of the other characters because they really intrigued me.  Maybe they will get their own stories some day.  I liked the epilogue and thought it was very fitting.  I agreed with their decision.  
I highly recommend this one.
