So I'm really struggling with this review, I'm giving it 3 stars it's almost a 4 bit didn't quite get there for me. It had the potential to be an amazing 5 star read but never got there and maybe with all 3 books together it would. It started out really slow and boring in the beginning but built up a bit but just stayed there for me. I could guess what was going to happen and there was no surprises for me. Like I said it had potential and was very well written but never fully pulled me in. But that however does not mean you won't like it,as it is very well written. It's set back in the 80's which I kinda enjoyed as I grew up in the eighties. .lol
Sebastian is a spoilt rich boy who's getting out of hand. Over the course of one week his life went spiraling even more out of control. So his mom sends him to America to finish his high school out with a tutor.
Tess has her mind focused on what she wants and there is no room for boyfriend's in that picture. She takes the job as a tutor to raise money to help with college. In no way did she see a complication of falling in love in her life. But will Sebastian change his ways and can Tess find room in her life for love? Find out when you read this book.

I'm so, so glad I ran into this story, I'm absolutely stunned how good it was, how I couldn't put it down. Usually I'm a standalone, told in first person kinda girl, so I'm really surprised how quickly Life's What You Make It become my favorite.
I found it refreshing and exciting that the story takes place in the 80's, I rarely read stories like that before, and I found this uniquue and well written. I was born in the 90's, so I don't know much about that era, and I enjoyed all the music and culture.
Tess is a very likable heroine, and Sebastian with his Brittish accent and bad boy ways is perfect book boyfriend material.
Sebastian and Tess are both high school seniors, and have a lot of growing up to do, especially Sebastian, and I'm glad I got to see their journey toward adulthood.

Sebastian Iron’s life is spiraling out of control. Over the course of one week Sebastian witnesses death, runs away with his best friend’s girl, gets kicked out of his English prep school and is banished to America by his domineering mother to repeat his senior year of high school. In America, Sebastian struggles to find self-discipline and a purpose to turn his life around. He meets Tess Hamilton, the only person to show him any kindness in his new school. Little does he know, she is the savior tutor hired by his mother to help him improve his grades. The two slowly begin to build a friendship. As their friendship blossoms, Sebastian begins to have romantic feelings for Tess. She claims to only want a platonic relationship, but Sebastian feels the undeniable spark that sizzles between them every time they are together.

Sebastian is rebelling against his mother and her every wishes. He does not even see her as his mother because she was never there, except to discipline him. Sebastian has no goal in mind, only to not do what his mother wants from him. His Nanny and Tess are working to assist him to be more focused. Tess is very focused and has specific goals for her life. Though she seems determined, her inability to fully commit is very frustrating. I saw her as someone who made decisions to not make stupid mistakes, but she does anyway.

Ms.Troutman has written a good story. This story is about young love, and it is set in the eighties. Sebastian and Tess come from different worlds. Their friendship deepens as they get closer to each other.i look forward to reading the rest of this series. I recommend this book.

My first thought about Sebastian is he was a spoiled brat. Then more comes out about him, and he's anything but spoiled. He's a kind hearted man who just wants a family to love.

His mom? Oy, I could have slapped her with a 2x4. What a cold hearted mean person.

I absolutely loved this book!

How can you not like a book that reminds you of your early years? The fact that this story takes place in the 80's had me smiling from ear to ear.
I absolutely adored the story of Tess and Sebastian. There is nothing better than that first real love. The story flowed amazingly well. The secondary characters were also well written.
Cannot wait to see what comes next for this couple.

I very much enjoyed Tess and Sebastian's story. They both learned to love from very different backgrounds. I felt Sebastian's anguish and Tess's reluctance in Ms. Troutman's writing. Definately going to read the next books.
