Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


Have you ever had a boyfriend cheat on you? Did you call him out on it, even if he's the hometown hero? I did and managed to get my heart broken in the process...

Now, back home in Aidan Falls for the summer, all I want to do is keep my head down until next semester starts—a hard prospect when my ex, his ex, and the whole damn town can’t seem to let go of the past.

And that’s not even mentioning Micah Wyatt, the ludicrously hot new guy who seems to know all about my past, and he isn’t shy about wanting to trap me in a bet he's made to get the town pariah—aka me—under the sheets.

I know Micah is bad news, but that doesn’t make him any easier to resist. After all, I’ve had a taste of bad before, and I’m not sure I want to go back to being the good girl…


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an e-galley of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

The Characters: I'm not sure what I thought about the characters to be honest. I thought they were interesting, and I loved watching the growth the characters made. Shelby is the town pariah after she treated the small-town football star like crap. Nobody wants anything to do with her except for Micah Wyatt--the town bad boy, who made a bet he could get her to sleep with him. Not exactly, the right type of attention to be attracting. I neither liked nor disliked Shelby.

She was an interesting character to read about, but I was apathetic about her.

Micah was a character that I thought could have been better developed. Toward the end of the novel, you start getting to know more about him, but you never really got to dive into his thought process. That's probably because the novel was told in Shelby's perspective. Micah is the typical badboy who's really not all that bad. But all in all, I liked the characters.

The secondary characters were intriguing and enjoyable to read about as well. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  I enjoyed the novel. It was a quick enjoyable read for me. I read it in one sitting in the space of just a couple of hours. The novel was well written and definitely dramatic.

I didn't love the novel, but I found it to be an interesting read. The plot line just wasn't one that drew me in as much as I would have liked. However, I think that fans of the new adult genre in general will like this novel. 

So why 3 stars? I enjoyed it, but it didn't really stand out. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Fairly tame as far as New Adult novels go. There are some sexual references/scenes, and there are some cases of strong language. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable, quick read. 

Love,
