This was a cutesy YA/NA romance that uses the age old trope of a good girl and a bad boy, a high school revenge plot and a nice dose of sexual heat. It has a nice twist to it and it left me smiling.

When Faith's ex-boyfriend spreads rumors about her, after she caught him cheating on her, she thinks that the only way to save her pride is by showing him and everyone else that she wasn't the problem. And what better way than to have the resident bad boy of Suttonville High play the part of her spring break fling?

Kyle has worked hard to cultivate his bad boy image but there's something about Faith that has him risking his biggest secret for the chance to help her get back at her ex. No one knows that under the bad boy facade he's perfected over the years, lies a hard working, genuinely nice guy. A guy marked by his own insecurities and self doubts.

What starts off as a ruse to fool everyone, suddenly becomes all to real. But when the truth comes out, will Faith still find Kyle as captivating as she thought? Or will Kyle let his own fears keep him from going after what he really wants?

This was a good read, loved that both the H and h were virgins :) There was ex drama but very low key. Kyle pretends to be this bad boy to protect himself, but he is really the complete opposite of that so when Faith starts to show a real interest in him, he panics. He's not sure she would understand his reason for lying and misleading people. This does lead to some pushing away but it doesn't take him long before he's overcoming his own demons to claim the girl that's stolen his heart.

Kyle was a super sweet character, I really liked him. Loved Faith too, she was a perfect match for Kyle and they were adorable together.

Cyndi Great review! Did he do other stuff with the OW to make himself seem like a bad boy? Or was it all made up?

Thanks Cyndi! And no, Kyle never did anything with OW, he just let people assume he was this huge player. He never wanted anyone like he did his h. It was 100% safe.

Cyndi Awesome ! Thank you!
