I should have DNF'd it at 30% when I was over the author's continuous reiteration of the heroes cockiness, wealth, and ability to make women fall at his feet. I couldn't find a single redeeming qualities about any of the characters in this book. It was boring and predictable, but I had to laugh when at 80% the couple finally decided to practice safe sex...too little, too late! I wish I had some positive thoughts on this story, but the only reason it is getting a whole two stars is because I finished it. ...more

It was a very clean YA, and the characters seemed immature for their age compared to a lot of other couples in this genre now-a-days, but it was sweet. Something that I wouldn't mind my daughter reading in the future. All in all, a good read. ...more

A girl on the run pretending to be someone she isn't, a bad boy desperate to be good, and a small town of busybodies sure to entertain. Demolished begins with our heroine, Summer Wheeler, fleeing to her family's holiday home in Blue Bay. A picturesque town with a day's of old feel. Hiding from her ex who she suspects is out to harm her, Summer takes on the identity of her childhood friend, Jenna, when she finds the new identity left for her by her deceased father. With sparse clues left for her, she tries to uncover what her ex doesn't want her to know, and how her father's sudden death ties into it all. Her childhood crush is the last person Summer expects to run into in the small town of Blue Bay, but when she does, she can't deny the sizzling attraction still lingering between them. And nether can he.... Sean Owens came back to Blue Bay for one reason, and one reason only. To live up to the man his father always wanted him to be. Chasing around a woman who clearly wants to be forgotten, is definitely not on his to-do list, but Sean can't resist the pull he feels towards Summer. The pull he's always felt. Can he assure Summer that she can trust him with all of her secrets, or will her past catch up with her first?
From their first meeting in that run-down diner, you could feel the sparks flying between Summer and Sean. Their history, which is slowly revealed through out the story, their continued connection and chemistry, pulled me in. It was a sweet romance between the two with just enough heat to make me sweat. The story was well-paced, the writing was absorbing, with likable characters, and I really enjoyed the quaint small town that it was set it. The one flaw in the story, which was an extensive plot element, was Summer's "fake" identity as Jenna. Everyone knew who she really was. She didn't fool anyone. Yet throughout the entire story, no one confronted her about it. It was baffling. Overall though, I delighted in this book and the Owens family captivated me. I look forward to more from this series!
