Lilah Bell isn't asking for much—just a normal life. A future that's different from her shadowed, traumatic past. Maybe even a chance to start over. Instead, all she gets is the suffocating attention of her overprotective sisters, who seem to be waiting for her to break again. They don't get that helping save her family's beautiful Virgin Islands resort is definitely a cha ...more

2.5 stars -- Not bad...I enjoyed how fresh and upfront Lilah was about some stuff. And Justin could be just adorable. They had great chemistry as well. In the end, some of the plot just felt like fill in (and I can definitely say I won't be reading Lora's book, her personality grated); then some of the resolutions just didn't work for me. I mean, his father's reactions were just soooooo awful that I couldn't see the good stuff.... And Lilah's struggles with depression and suicide just didn't fee ...more

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I found this story less fulfilling than anticipated. Perhaps it was my mood--all the bad things that have happened in the last 10 days, or maybe it was because I had trouble accepting that a bad boy could have changed so much in such a short time, particularly when his bad boyness had held so little danger for him.

Not that others won't like the fairy-tale nature of the ending. And on an island that often spells "vacation from real life" for many.

3.5 Stars

This story was interesting because both main characters were kind of a mess. Surrounded by people who all wanted them to do things their way, Lilah and Justin had to find their own path. In between a romance that started as a fling, there were the stories of the people in Justin and Lilah's lives. As the story came together the result was a book that was heartfelt and sweet. I really enjoyed this one, so put it on your wish list or pre-order it for the new year!
