Brenna moves back to the US after spending a year abroad. She’s decided to go to school half day at the regular high school and half at the technical school down the road. On her first day, she meets dark, mysterious, handsome, and outgoing Saxon at her regular school. Then she goes to her tech classes and meets Jake. Jake is sweet, quiet, and flat out beautiful. The guys are total opposites, but Brenna is attracted to them both. Once she gets to know them both better, she feels like she’s got a stronger connection to Jake. They start dating and Brenna learns what love feels like. The problem is that Saxon won’t leave her alone. He’s stuck on her and isn’t afraid to show it. Now, Jake and Saxon have a past. They were once best friends, but have had a falling out and can’t seem to recover from it. Brenna finds that she is stuck in the middle.

My Take:

I had seen this book come across my recommended reads and had seen favorable reviews by fellow bloggers, but hadn’t had a chance to read it. Then, LR contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing it for her. I jumped at the chance and I’m so glad I did! I read this book in a single day! I loved this story! I liked that the issues and feelings are realistic for their age group. I remember what I did at that age and Brenna’s behavior is very accurate for a curious 16 year old girl. The relationships certainly take center stage and I love that, but I also enjoyed seeing her relationship with her parents. I know that feeling of not letting them down, but wanting to be independent as well. It was nice to see Brenna make choices for herself and handle the consequences. Let me just say that I ADORE Jake! I liked how honest Jake and Saxon were about their feelings for her and how she was forced to come clean about her own feelings AND actions. I loved this book so much, that I have rearranged my reading schedule over the next few weeks, so that I can read the sequel, Junk Miles! Highly highly recommended read!
