The main character is LDS living in Utah. She has very high standards and tries to follow all the rules. Those not familiar with the Mormon religion may not get this book. Those who are will probably be able to appreciate her thought process as she turns 16 and is headed on her first date.
Reading it made me realize I was grateful to no longer be a teenager and have to worry about being asked out, friends, dates, kisses, dances, etc. There were a few too many of her friends introduced in the few pages of this book which left me feeling a little lost as to who everyone was but otherwise it’s a fun glimpse into the workings of a teenage mind. I will pick up the 2nd book Stolen Kiss and read it.
Rating: 3.5 Stars – Good Book
Brooklyn is your typical teen girl in that she has friends, they hang out, she does after-school activities, and she wants to date all the hottest boys in school. Where she's different is that she isn't allowed to date until she's 16 (she's a good little Mormon girl), and her dates must all be group dates. This might be typical of teens in the LDS church, but I didn't relate to that part of the story or Brooklyn's character because I have no experience there.
I do not blame her at all for wanting to avoid drama in high school, so I totally felt her on that one because I was pretty much the same way. It's so much better when you can just enjoy your friends and your activities instead of having to worry about if your boyfriend is going to break up with you for the next pretty girl who comes along or if some girl is going to fight you because she's jealous. So you go, girl. Avoid the drama!
The plot moves pretty quickly and is fairly simple, so there's not too much extra fluff or anything. If you're looking for a quick little contemporary romance, I think this would be a good choice. It's well written and most things I didn't know about concerning the LDS church were explained well enough that I didn't dwell on not knowing from personal experience. There are more stories in this series, but I don't know if I will be continuing to read them. 2.5/5 from me.

When I requested this book I had no idea it would be so short. That was both a good and a bad thing.Read more
