Our main character is Samantha. She has always done the same things her whole life. She has a mother in politics, a best friend over achiever, a sister who is a rebel, and neighbors she knows nothing about. Samantha always followed her mothers rules careful not to ruin her image as the senator. Be responsible, clean the house and don’t associate at all with the Garrets. Samantha tried to keep her distance from her next door neighbors but it was something about that big family that she had to observe. Watching them from a distance was like a movie. Nothing felt real until Jase Garret climbed up by her window.
Everything was changing in her life. Her mother once strong became different around her new man Clay. Her best friend Nan wasn’t available as usual. Her sister went away for the summer. On top of all that she was now dating Jase Garret. Something she was forbidden to do. Yet she couldn’t spending time with him and his family. The big family was something she never had yet, she loved the chaos. She did everything she could to be with Jase, but is that enough.
I gave this book 4/5 stars. The first 50 or so pages I was hooked but after that it just fell flat for me. It didn’t pick up until the last 100 pages of the book. This book seemed like such a bad movie that you can’t stop watching until you find out the ending. The best part of this book was Jase. I felt so bad for him. I’m glad he got a good ending. I just like the books ending. It was so unresolved to me. I wish Huntley would give them a different ending. I found the Samantha character kind of annoying, it took her too long to make any good choice. Jase was the perfect guy. The first time they had sex it was so cute and funny.
