Oh, Free Kindle Books-why do I always fall for you. And this time, I did it without even checking to see what this book was about, which in my case, was a fatal mistake. This wasn't as poorly written as the other book I read by Jennifer Laurens, which was a relief. There were still some odd moments, "The dress looked like a legwarmer on an oak tree." WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? Step away from the adjectives and similes and metaphors Laurens. Do all of us a favor. There was also some obviously reused material in both-I counted several sentences/phrases that were used in both, which was odd, and some ideas recurred here.
I'm not going to comment on the teacher-student thing, because that's part of the plot and its pretty much everywhere on the CW. (I'm not a huge fan, and it baffles me why college graduates would go after high school seniors-and how that could be in a non-creepy way, but that is just my opinion.) It was definitely a fast read! If you enjoy this type of romance, I would say give it a try. Otherwise, skip it, and head towards Why We Broke Up or The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight. I've also heard Dash and Lily's Book of Dares is Pretty Entertaining.
