This is going to be a quick review for a quick read:
The word count may not have been huge, but make no mistake. This book packs a big punch.
Skylar is already a great heroine. She's funny and feisty and not afraid to tell you what's on her mind. Calvin was a fun addition to the book. I loved they way the two of them hit it off; their personalities jive perfectly and are going to make this series so much fun!
Right off the b ...more
