Prelim Review: This is very much like the teen romances I read back in the day. Which isn't a negative thing at all, but refreshing. There's a slightly deeper mystery, that's easy to puzzle out once the player(s) are revealed, but this was just a fun, relaxing read perfect for the beach.

I wasn't always a fan of Dante or Reece honestly. Dante was just too polished one moment and too angst-ridden the next. Reece spent what seems like a good chunk of book convinced she is far too inferior to even LOOK at Dante, never mind think about being with him. The other characters (Mia, Elena, Gavin, Nate, Becca, Quinn) are given broad strokes for characterization. This wasn't bothersome until the end when the 'villain' of the piece feels very cookie-cutter.

Cole did a good job at sweeping the reader away though, she has a way with words that made me almost feel like I was at the fictional island of Caberra, which is nestled fairly close to Greece. The story was just predictable at times and that detracted from my enjoyment.
