So guess what I wrote this review and poof the next thing you know its all gone and none of it was saved *sigh* This is a summary of that review now since I am not going to write the whole thing again.
IF you are a fan of Lauren layne's Sex, love and Stiletto series you will definitely enjoy this NA book/series as well.
This story is about Ethan Price ('nauseatingly charming' in Stephanie's words) and Stephanie Kendrick ('goth' in Ethan's words) who are going through a rough patch in their life and though they are poles apart in their personalities they are both rebelling in their own way, trying to move on and mostly importantly i felt trying to forget. They are both attending a summer class/project in which they chose to be partners I know a such a cliche plot right ? but it works, more than that its fun, engaging and entertaining to read.
From the first moment they meet where they exchange barbs by stereotyping one another to the end, this reader was never bored and you feel for both of what they went through and their struggles. Some of the NA books can be shallow but that was not the case with this one.
Minor quibbles I didnt quite understand the way Ethan behaves so appalling to Stephanie since couple of chapters a go he told her that he prefers her now and as a goth and since that was what attracted him to her in the first place his sudden disgust was frankly annoying and disappointing so was the fact when he met Olivia after moths the whole staring at her while ignoring Stephanie but Alls well that ends well.
I enjoyed this book so much that I requested the second of the series so I am off to read that one now..[b:Broken|21408690|Broken (Redemption, #1)|Lauren Layne|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1396705644s/21408690.jpg|33027161]
