When you have grown up in a lifestyle you can't afford but it is all you have ever known what will you do to hang on to that life?
For Rebecca being the daughter of the chauffeur allowed her to grow up with the wealthy children of the rich families in "The Meadows" and until she was out on her own really knew no other life. Now she has to pay rent and bills while keeping that part of her secret from her trust fund friends who don't and wouldn't understand the need to work.
Reid was Rebecca's boyfriend in high school before he left to become a doctor. Rebecca has pinned her hopes of a life in "The Meadows" on him coming back and sweeping her off her feet. He is finally back so where is the spark she is waiting for when he finally takes her out on a date?
Finn meet Rebecca when he almost ran her over after she stepped in front of his motorcycle. He showed up at the diner she is working at and takes her out on a date. Rebecca figures she might as well have fun while she waits for Reid to come back home from school, she never counted on that she would have so much fun and develop some pretty intense feelings for Finn, after all he can't give her the life she thinks she wants. Now she has to make a choice.
I had a really hard time liking Rebecca in this book, I felt like she was rather childish in her need to lie to her supposed friends about her financial reality and her idea that she could some how just not pay attention to bills and some how it would all work out. I liked Finn he seemed a nice down to earth guy who develops feelings for Rebecca. Reid is supposed to be the third in this love triangle but his appearance in the book is rather brief. I felt like the bones of the story were good and the story line was there but could have been developed more as well as the character development was a little lacking. That being the case it is a sweet story with Rebecca doing a lot of growing up and finding what is really important in this life.
I received this book in exchange for and honest review.
Rebecca starts out as the proverbial rich girl who's fallen on hard times. She's known no other life than her friends and neighborhood of Meadow Ridge and is desperately trying to stay there and keep the illusion alive. She's waiting for her high school love to return so they can marry and live the ideal life she's dreamt of but her situation keeps worsening which has led to a waitressing job and a chance meeting with sexy and hard working Finn. She at first sees Finn as a way to pass the time until Reid returns, but before long their sizzling connection can't be ignored and she has to decide what she really wants and what will really make her happy. Through most of the story I didn't really care for Rebecca. It seemed a bit pathetic and naive to wait for a man who made no promises for the future with her. Her wanting to use Finn for a fling seemed mean and showed how little she cared for his feelings. Juggling both men's attentions at once also showed how little she cared for other's feelings and there was a bit of satisfaction when everything came to a head for her. When with her friends she talked down about Finn just to fit in and this hypocrisy also rubbed me wrong. It was only when she was with Finn that she became more likable. He brought out maturity and emotional honesty in her when they were together.
Finn was the highlight of this story! He was the quintessential hero, sexy and hard working and not afraid to show and admit his feelings. He brought out the best in Rebecca and I love the slow, yet extremely sexually tense build-up throughout their relationship. Their romance was believable and extremely satisfying with a nicely smouldering sexual encounter.
The secondary characters were predictable with none really standing out. Reid was especially bland and I couldn't understand why Rebecca thought he was worth waiting for, no matter how much money he had. He's easily forgettable. What's not forgettable is the warm and fuzzy feeling this story gave me. It was a feel good story that ultimately conveyed a meaningful message that left me extremely satisfied. Those wanting a sweet story with a nice bit of steam will find this story to be just what they're looking for along with an author who has a pleasantly reliable writing style.
