Like the earlier poster, I too was hooked on the sample chapters so I went ahead & purchased the book with excitement. Ugh, major disappointment!
***SPOILERS*** I hate to say this about anyone but I'm sorry, I just found the heroine to be a dumb, irresponsible ho! I mean, she's sixteen & flirting (sexual innuendos!) with a 20-21 year old guy who does not attend her school but hangs out there! She gets into this adult's car to go for milkshakes without telling anyone, after only meeting him the day before for a few hours, & after her best guy friend (hero) whom she's grown up with & always looked out for her says the douche is bad news & stay away! Where is her sense of safety & responsibility? She knows she's underage yet dresses in a mini-skirt & a top with her freakin' red bra showing...and her parents let her out of the house like that to go out on a date with this adult?! Granted this was a few weeks later once she turned 17, but good grief, I found her parents to be caring folks so for them to allow this just because the guy is gorgeous? Freakin' unbelievable!
Like the heroine, I've had my best guy friend carry me around & I've jumped on them...piggyback! Who the heck runs to their best friend & jumps on them in the front, wrapping their arms & legs around said guy like glue, basically grinding against each other & giving each other hickies? Then, though she doesn't want psycho adult, instead of blowing him off, she still talks to him flirty & with sexual undertones, WTF?! I pity the hero.
Horrible, terrible heroine. Her behaviour was so appalling that I skip through several pages, though I persevered till the end hoping there was a light at the end of the tunnel & that our wonderful heroine would eventually mature.
I hope young teens who read this realize and understand that this is fiction and do not think they have to act like her to get a good guy. What a waste of my time & money.
