Book Description

Jessie Boone is a self proclaimed bad boy and doesn’t march to the beat of anyone’s drum, but his own. Growing up in less than desirable circumstances has made him no stranger to the hard knock life and his determination to leave it behind is fierce. When he finds himself transferred to East Franklin High School, he sees his opportunity to use his athletic ability to snag a college football scholarship, but Forbes Henderson, the player Jessie means to replace isn’t giving up his spot willingly. In fact, Forbes is willing to go to extreme measures to retain his place as first string quarterback. When Forbes’ malicious plan to injure his replacement fails, Jessie is furious and determined to show him he messed with the wrong person; not only is he going to take the position of first string quarterback, he’s going to take his girl, too.

Claire Deveraux is perfection at it’s best. She is beautiful, intelligent and unaware she just became Jessie Boone’s conquest as revenge against her boyfriend, Forbes Henderson. Like her flawless performance as the perfect daughter and student, Claire’s production of being the perfect girlfriend has everyone fooled, except Jessie Boone, and she fears this tattooed bad boy will see her secret desire to explore his crude threats and promises to rock her perfect world. If she decides to give in to one uninhibited moment with Jessie, will she learn too late that it was all an act of vengeance or will Jessie learn the taste of first love is sweeter than that of revenge?



Review

I'm not so sure what I expected when I started this story, but when I finished it, I very much just liked it and just loved how the two main characters, Jessie and Claire were written. We read from both of their POVs and their voices, their backgrounds, seemed really realistic. These two are from different types of families, and I mean different. Jessie, in a way, has really raised himself, but unfortunately has had to face harsh realities, that Claire would never have to deal with. She was brought up in a good and wealthy household, but she sometimes feels alone, even though she has the popular boyfriend, and big status that any girl at their high school would want right? Well...Claire has second thoughts when she meets Jessie, well actually they don't hit it off at first, but there are interesting situations that occur between these two, that it's something not to miss, especially...their intimate scenes, where oh my, you can just feel the electricity between these two; it's just infectious, so I definitely thought the romance was written well. What I also enjoyed, was the dialogue. Yes, the comeback lines are freaking hilarious, really, especially what comes out of Claire's best friend, Payton's mouth; its just something to read on your own, to really feel the humor; it was just wonderful! 

And I must say, I cannot wait to read Shallow, which will feature Payton, so look out for that upcoming Review! 

My Rating: 4/5
I say a Strong PG-13 Rating!
