WOW! This books is HOT! I needed something to get my blood pumping and this did the trick! I loved the writing style! It is written in 2 points of view, a chapter from Brittany and one from Alex. It flowed effortlessly!
This story is about love. It is about romance, it is about finding your soul mate. In the midst of turmoil, and danger!! I really loved these characters, and wanted them to be together. Knowing if they could they would make each other better people. There is loads of kissing! Hot kissing. Descriptive kissing. I actually felt like my insides were on fire as I was reading it. Melting me from head to toe. Seriously. I thought I was kissing Alex Fuentes! and he's hot....
Totally a West Side Story kind of book, loved it! Amazing! I spent the 2 days after I'd finished it just re-reading my favorite parts over and over again. Seriously so good. This books will take your breath away!!
Note to parents: There is bad language, teen drinking, and teen sex in this book.
