Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember.
Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best.
Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous.
What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy…
Sawyer Vincent: Always a good boy and having trouble getting over Ashton while dealing with news of his relation to Beau.
Lana McDaniel: Always had a crush on Sawyer. She changes her entire look to get his attention which I always thought was desperate, but oh well.
I was so hooked on Ashton and Beau that I decided to give this book a shot. I usually don’t care for a series that follows different couples in each book, I prefer the same couple throughout. I read this book originally hoping to get more of a peek at Ashton and Beau. I was not disappointed. There is plenty of follow up with them, but I also got hooked on the story of Sawyer and Lana.
It was a wonderful angst filled YA romance, with a little bit of sex thrown in for good measure.
