Book Description

Seventeen year old Violet Mercer returns home from her summer vacation in Hawaii to discover her boyfriend's cheating on her with a friend. As if that wasn't bad enough, her mother's marrying a man she just met.

Things take an awkward turn when Violet meets her rich new stepfather, and his gorgeous son--the hot guy whom she made a fool of herself in front of earlier that day! Zane O' Connor is sexy and charming, and way out of her league. He makes her forget her ex-boyfriend even existed. But there's no way she'd ever have a chance with him...right?

Through a strange turn of events, Violet finds herself living with Zane for a month. Somewhere between the fighting and flirting, they become friends. And it isn't long before that friendship blooms into something else...something more powerful than Violet anticipated.

But Zane is hiding something from her--something big enough to tear them apart if Violet ever discovered the truth about him. Her suspicions keep her from trusting him completely. She's been burned before--is she willing to take that risk again?

As she and Zane spend more time together, Violet realizes it's too late: she's fallen for the beautiful boy with the big secret. Will she get her heart broken twice in one year--or will her love survive the truth?

For readers seventeen and older due to sexual situations and language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should She Forgive His Lies???? November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had me laughing in the very first chapter. Violets lame boyfriend breaks up with her which leads to a series of awful things happening to her that just get more funny as the day progresses. Both Violet and her mother say the most embarrassing and mortifying things when they get nervous and it is hilarious!

This is the story of a gorgeous guy named Zane who can have any girl he wants who meets his future step sister and can't seem to stay away from her. Violet is pretty too, but she has self confidence issues that keep her from seeing how beautiful she really is since she was fat as a child with daddy issues and wonders if all boys cheat. Falling for Gorgeous man-whore Zane could be a big mistake! The goddesses he traipse through his place while she temporarily lives there make Violet seem way out of his league or his "type". But she falls for his charming ways and loses her heart. Unfortunately, he has secrets and they really could break that heart.

Chapter 10 hilarious moment:
The next night I walk in on Zane just coming out of the shower. He's wearing nothing but a towel knotted low around his waist. Beads of water slide down his tanned muscles, from his chest down to the fascinating rides along his hips....
Don't worry, I handle it well. I scream, "Ewwww!" and run from the room.
No, I really did. I walked into that room and saw the hottest sexiest guy I've ever seen - wet and half naked. And I said, "E[...]"
I know. How am I still single, right?

I love Violet's personality and all her embarrassing moments. I do not like all the cheating that has gone on (dad cheats on her mother, boyfriend cheats on her, best friend cheats with a married man...) and I found myself agreeing with Ms.

4.0 out of 5 stars You gotta read this story November 24, 2012
By Bea
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved loved loved this book. It was humorous, sexy, witty and romantic. Our Hero (Zane) had a secret that I figured out pretty quick. Something happens to the heroine's BFF and we are supposed to wonder "who did it?", except once again I guessed correct, BUT that's okay because if I wanted a mystery I'd be reading mystery novels. No, this book is good because of the way the story is executed. Violet and Zane go from strangers to friends to something more. The chemistry and sexual tension between them keeps them company during the whole transition. Violet is absolutely hilarious, adorable, caring, loyal, smart and playboy model gorgeous - Zane didn't stand a chance. He is described as Brad Pitt level gorgeous. He is the whole package (melt panties kind). If you are into graphic detailed love scenes this book is going to be a let down. I would describe the love scenes as heated moments that fade to black. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would have preferred jealousy scenes where Zane was battling with jealousy; not bat crazy jealous fits, just something that gave him insight on how Violet felt when chics flirted with him. Other than that I am so glad I bought the book. It was well worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting more and what I got was an okay YA novel. February 24, 2013
By Jessica
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wanted to love this book. I had high expectations for it, maybe too high. With the title I was thinking it was a more in depth, emotional read. I wasn't expecting it to be a pretty cliché storyline by the end of the novel, especially with the title of the book I wasn't expecting more.

Violet is a funny (she made me laugh out loud on several occasions) 17 year-old girl. She is just your average girl, which I loved that she wasn't the outcast OR the popular girl, she was just normal. Violet's mom is marrying a man she just met two months prior who has a gorgeous 20 year-old son Zane. Zane is a player, having a different girl in his bed every night and tons of money to blow. Violet can't help but be attracted to him and the feelings become mutual. The two have a steamy secretive romance not wanting their parents to know they are together even though they are about to be step brother & sister. Zane and Violet begin to get series but Zane is keeping a gigantic secret from her and once Violet finds out everything changes.

What I liked: I really liked that the story was humorous. I wasn't expecting to actually laugh out loud at more than a few scenes. I liked the character of Zane, he was mysterious but sexy. He was rich and a player but he was a nice laid back kind of guy. The book started off really strong, in fact I would have given the first 70% a 4 star review. Though it is a little too YA for me, they had a PG-13 relationship and found it realistic of a high school senior girl.

What I didn't like: I wasn't a fan of Violet, she was a bit immature. Zane once mentioned he thought she was mature for her age but I found the opposite, especially towards the end of the novel. Zane's secret...

4.0 out of 5 stars So Cute & So Funny December 13, 2012
By Ttime30
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This read had me laughing like a dork! Seriously... Like at times I couldn't even stop laughing.
Violet.. moments from finding out her boyfriend was cheating on her finds herself in an embarrassing situation in front of one of the hottest guys she's ever seen. Later while at a restaurant in the mist of meeting her soon to be step dad the "hot guy" shows up to be none other than her soon to be step brother, Zane.
While her mom is away on an extended pre-honey moon Violet ends up with no where to stay but with Zane. The tension between both of them is thick. Unfortunately for Violet when she's in awkward situations the most awkward and hilarious things comes rolling out of her mouth.
Violet & Zane find themselves falling for one another. Not wanting to spoil the plot for anyone... Lets just say Zane is hiding a big secret that could tear them apart. Violet struggles with her feelings and her naively and makes for some pretty funny moments. The read was predictable but not wanting to miss a word that would tumble from Violets & her mothers mouth had me turning each page with anticipation.
Nicole Christie wrote a a sweet, witty tale that had me laughing and at times I truly felt the embarrassment that Violet felt.

Loved Zane. Good teen romance. Premarital sex is involved but there aren't explicit details. She writes really well. Looking forward to more of her books.
