When tragedy struck and her grandmother died, Alessandra was faced with an impossible decision. She could reach out to her father and convince him to help her or go into foster care until she’s

This book started off good and then just went down the crapper. There was nothing special about the main character yet the popular guys were always in love with her. She went to two different schools in the book and it happened at both. Later in the book once she moved she started dating this guy and he was so jealous. I guess after turning 30 my standards for how MC's act have become higher. ...more
I was disappointed in this book and the only good was it was a Kindle freebie. Alessandra was annoying and selfish, plus she was too free with her affections. One example is when she meets someone, their first meeting, before even knowing his name they're making front of others. Nothing happens in the story, besides her moving, and there was too much swearing and coarse language for my liking. Not a book I'd recommend and I don't expect to continue with the series. ...more

DNF after one ten page chapter.

"It's Saturday night and we are at Shady's house at yet another party. I am in the game room playing pool with Jameson, Paul, Sean and Derek since Kellan went to the kitchen to find us some drinks. It's been about 20 minutes now and he's not back yet. I know the house is packed, but there's no way it should take him this long to get back. I am normally not clingy, but something tells me I need to go look for him...

I for one don't drink more than a beer. I like bei

This was a 4.5 star for me. Some of the writing was a little shaky, but the writers enthusiasm and natural storytelling ability shone through! White's style is unique and engaging, the pace is fast moving, and I loved the fresh take on the 'hot girl' storyline. Alessandra was undeniably cool, but this book had a 'real' edge to it which grounded the storyline from being overly fantastical. I'll be honest, I've already read and devoured the other three available titles and eagerly await the fifth! ...more

This is my first book I have read by Krystal and so far she has peaked my interest. Its actually very
easy reading and has a pretty good plot minus all the high school stunts that happen at public as well as private schools. Alessandra Powell is a teenage girl who has been raised by her grandmother since her mother abandoned her and her father wasn't even aware of her existence. She has an exceptionally positive outlook on life. She chooses to see the good in people and situations. She seems abl

Love it

It's a refreshing story of love and also how things are never and they seem.
I hate what bad happen in the end, but that's why I'm rewarding the next book

I’m Hooked!
Alessandra Powell has always believed in the old adage, “everything happens for a reason.”
Every obstacle Alessandra has had to face, she has been able to turn into a positive….little does she know, her biggest challenge is yet to come.
Alessandra has always known she was dumped, as an infant, on her Grandmother’s doorstep by her unloving mother, whom has since passed away. She also knows her father is Alessandro Powell, the current Governor of Oregon and she is aware he has no knowled

Five Star Read
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Alessandra's mother didn't want her and her father wasn't even aware she exsistence so she was raised by her grandmother.
She was faced with an impossible descion after her grandmother passed away. She could go into foster care till she was eighteen or reach out to her father for help.
In this first installment of this series we meet Alessandra and follow thru her life with all of these life alternating changes.

Alessandra Powell is a teenage girl who has been raised by her grandmother since her mother abandoned her and her father wasn't even aware of her existence.

She seems able to handle anything that life throws at her, which is something she needs to rely heavily on upon the death of her grandmother.

The cover caught my eye. This is the story of Alessandra Powell, who loses the only relative she has in her life, her grandmother, due to a car accident. Alone, she seeks out her father who doesn't even know of her existence. And once she does, her life changes drastically, especially given who her father is. I liked the story, and it moved at a quick pace, but as for Alessandra herself, I am torn on her personality traits. She seemed too flirtatious to me, and after an incident involving her bo ...more

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Being an older reader, high school drama teens do not interest me in the least. But I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Alessandra. She is strong, confident in her self esteem and takes no flak from anyone. It was a joy to see how she handles jealous, shallow bullies. Her honesty in speaking her mind and her compassion for the underdog was a real treat. She has a sense of humor and easily avoids taking offense. The love between her and Kyle

Not my cup of tea

This was a well written story but was a bit too fast paced for me in regards to the relationships formed. For high school kids it seemed very adult and had little character development.

The main character runs into trouble with her boyfriend in the first few pages and then just lets the issue go. The characters don't act like teenagers even with the typical jealous girls interspersed. I think young adults would like the storyline but it's just not for me.

Alexandra is an amazing, sassy and strong characters to follow and I absolutely enjoy reading her story. The way she handles all the challenges is inspiring. The love and loyalty she has for her friends and family is something we can only dream of having in real life. The attraction and chemistry between her and Kyle sizzles. It's a a love that's so powerful that everyone can see it glow. I absolutely recommend this series!

I gave this book 5 stars, reading this book made me feel as though I was actually living it through the characters. Even though this is a fast paced book, it very well written and keeps you coming back for more.
Krystal has an amazing ability to write a story and keep you interested the entire time.

She has a good handle on who she is. Her grandmother raised her well. That's a good thing because she is going to need every bit of self reliance she has. Dang, but cliff hangers leave me unfulfilled. I know, it’s the nature of the beast. ...more

Great start to the series! The plot flowed well and how love how unpredictable the story turned out to be! So glad the rest of the books are out because after that cliffhanger I must know what happens.

Good first book

Fast paced story of a teenagers life changed through tragic circumstances. Great, strong lead Character. Book 1 ends on a cliffhanger and the story is strong enough that you want to continue with book 2 to see what happens.

My name is Krystal and I love reading and writing! I doubt I could be without my kindle as I take it everywhere with me as every moment I can spear I spend it reading.

I have always thought of myself as quite inventive and I figured it was time to put my creativity and imagination to work! That's when I decided to buy a smaller laptop that I could easily carry with me and furiously write whenever
