I LOVED this book.

I have read a few books written from the guy's POV.
Some are great, some not so much. This was great.

I loved how on top the story was just your normal happy go lucky romantic YA. Witty comments, high school carrying on, guys been jerks etc. But underneath there was a darker undercurrent, you sensed that everything wasn't as good as it appeared.

Sebastian is a great character, though he can be a jerk at times & though I am not a teenage boy I imagine his voice & inner musings were pretty much on the ball. I loved how he cared for his friends & his mom. And I could totally understand why he did the things he did due to what he has seen happen in his own life at home.
All the other characters were likeable & I downloaded What a Boy Needs the next day because I can't wait to read Jaden & Pris's story & get a little but more of Bastian & Aspen.

This a a smutt free YA, no violence & very little drinking etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed & look forward to reading more by this author :)
