Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.

Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.

This book was soooo different than the other books that I've read by Ms. Glines that I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into! I had heard so much about it and FINALLY bought it! I'm pretty sure that I devoured it in about a day. Yup.

Ashton is one of those characters that, I think, if she were real, every guy would love her and every girl would want to be her friend (unless they wanted her boyfriend, that is). She's smart, sweet, fun, and a whole lot of feisty! And even though, in the beginning, she tries to squelch the feistiness, I'm pretty sure if someone's looking, you can still see it.

So, who is she perfect for? Nice, calm, good-boy, Sawyer? Or, wild, dangerous, and dreamy, Beau? She's been friends with both of them since they were eight. And they all have a close relationship until Ashton started dating Sawyer, that is.

Really, from the beginning, I think it's awfully apparent who Ashton is meant to be with. No question. But, being a part of the journey that takes HER to the conclusion, is an absolutely amazing experience.

This book has heartbreak, loss, secrets, and some, SERIOUSLY, swoony-worthy moments. And while I wouldn't suggest this book for some of the YOUNGER readers, there are a few scenes that, while they don't get TOO explicit, I think may be more geared for older teens. But, if you're going to read this, make sure you set a day aside. Because, you will not be able to put it down!
