This book did not disappoint! Every time I had to put it down to do something else it left me wanting more. At the end...it left me needing more! I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series (Knowing You).
One thing that really grabbed me with this book is that there is no instant love story. There is no instant relationship. I really enjoyed reading about Jade and Garret. Their relationship was gradual with the storyline and made it that much more compelling!
I love the crazy twists and turns. Nothing in the story was predictable...which also made me a fan.
I read quite a few reviews before reading the book and I would have to disagree with a lot of them. A lot of reviewers said they didn't like Jade because she was whiney and inexperienced. I love Jade. I love that she wasn't the typical college girl. I love that she has some skeletons in her closet and that she doesn't parade around showing them off. She is in fact inexperienced in life and slightly mysterious, and I really like that. I thought it added a lot to the story.
Garret...what to say about him...an attractive rich boy who knows the word NO. I really like Garret. I thought his character was very well thought out. He isnt the macho, big headed douche bag that we normally read about in these YA novels. He is a genuinely kind guy who knows what he wants.
The two of them together is pure awesomeneness! She is poor with a troubled past. He is rich who has anything he could ever want, that is until his Dad steps in.
Can Garret keep his father happy and be with who his heart desires?
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes an out of the box YA.
