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

On the surface Cami is your average, wild teenager out to have a good time, but inside she’s struggling. Almost a year ago her best friend was in a car accident, an accident Cami feels responsible for. Since then, she’s made it her personal mission to experience everything life has to offer, both for herself and for Julie, who will never have fun again.

Then she meets Liam, her cousin’s sexy roommate. Hooking up with a hot British dude seems like the perfect way to start off the school year, but the more time she spends with him, the more she finds herself actually liking the guy. Which totally screws up her plans to live life with no regrets…


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received a copy 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.

Why did I decide to turn the pages? I thought the synopsis sounded intriguing. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This book wasn't anything like I thought it would be. Cami isn't your average, wild teenager. She just wants to be that way. Her friend left her a list that she always wanted to complete before she died, and Cami's determined to do things on that list...everything on the list. 

The book is obviously about the attraction between Liam and Cami, and how much she tries to fight it.

That's pretty much all the book is about, which did make for an enjoyable read, but it also meant that this book didn't stand out in any dramatic fashion. 

It was a fun, quick read that met my expectations. 

Major Strengths: It was quick and fun. 

Major Weaknesses: Predictable and it wasn't exactly deep. 

So why 3 stars?

Can I read the series out of order? I did. I'm not actually sure I even realized this was a series. 

Warnings/Side-notes: 17+ for mature sexual scenes. 

The Wrap-up: A fun, enjoyable read.

Love,
