This is the first book I've read from this author and I'm not sure if I'll go back for more. The writing style of this book was quite different and the editing threw me off. It would mention Christina cooking but Britney was the cook. The friend Justine was no friend and the writing made this very clear. Quite frankly, this book was written in such a way that you couldn't help but to identify the heroine as TSTL. Dear me. Her inner monologues, which appear to try to inject some humour, we're not funny. They were actually very idiotic. I wonder if I've ever met anyone who thinks like this.

Don't get me wrong. I am very open minded, which is why I read this book in the first place. I wasn't even upset about the taboo relationship. However, if I say I won't be a part of it while you say you want me, then when you flaunt your taboo relationship in my face, I'd be out. No such luck here. It seems Becker could do no wrong. (view spoiler)

So I wasn't happy with Cassie's dumb decisions. She was very disappointing. Becker wasn't any more appealing. I just couldn't believe how he was portrayed. He seemed pretty cold, inconsiderate, and insensitive. Maybe it would have been better if I got to see his POV. Not sure how he could have been depicted as less of a douche. I'm no writer. And in the end, he didn't choose her. There was no choice. I couldn't live with that because for months he strung her along and if the choice wasn't removed, he'd still be stringing her along. Ah well. We can't all have self-respect. I hope no girls take lessons from this unless it's what NOT to do.
