Goodreads summary: Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he’s tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?…. Hell Yeah.
My views: This book is all about teenage love, its benefits and faults. Ashton has the Vincent boys as her friends from childhood but growing up she gives a nod to Sawyer, the chivalrous and handsome one while her heart lies with the bad boy Beau. Will she find the courage to stand up for love, to go against her family and town? That is the crux of the story. It talks of romance, misunderstandings and love. A very light and fast read. Good for love-struck teenagers. Too simple for someone looking for more plot to go with (like I did, hence the two stars).
If you want something to read, to think about, skip this one.
If you want something light and breezy to read, something that doesn’t require your mind to work, this one has got it. I read it between serious writing, so it was a nice break.
