Book Summary

Hope didn’t ask for so much change in her life. She was happy living in Georgia for the rest of her life. Focusing on the things she loved the most: singing, dancing, and her best friend Karsen. This was effortless, she had no worries.

But all that changed when her mother decided to leave her dad for Pete, the Tae Kwon do instructor. And now Hope had to choose between staying where she belonged or moving far away to Cherry California with her dad.

After making the choice to move far away, to protect her father, Hope realizes Cherry is nothing like the hometown she’s used to. Everyone is rude, high class and she doesn’t fit in. Not until Slade comes along. He has never fit in and he is okay with that. And Hope is fascinated by everything that Slade is. All the way down to his tattoos and bat wielding rescue the first time they meet.

She knows she should stay far away from him, but it proves tricky as she discovers dark secrets about the town and people in Cherry, California. Hope doesn’t know who to trust as her life takes a turn from ordinary and depressing to dangerous and wild.

My Reviews

First off, although this book feel YA because the female lead is seventeen, the topics are quite adult.  This book content rivals description of some adult books so be warned. This book is not for the faint of heart. With that said, I still think for the most part what happens is an important part of the story. Despite that, I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Hope is a girl who is coming into herself so to speak. Not sure what was going on in Georgia, but in California all bets are off. She makes interesting decisions but given being put in her shoes, I find I might make a lot of the same choices.

We have other characters that I won’t mention because I think you should find out on your own. To say the least I was changing my mind about certain people as much as Hope as the story unfolds. I got to mention her best friend Karsen. I love her. She was a fun girl, and I wonder if Hope ever got her letter to its destination. I don’t remember that being addressed. I could have missed it, but if not it was the only real plot hole I found.

As far as the storyline goes, I love drama and this book had it. I was flabbergasted at one point in the story with her dad so much I had a hard time reading. I felt like it was happening to me and well…

Anyway, it was a really good story and I’m looking forward to more.

My book boyfriend Slade.

Okay, after speaking with the author, I had to update the likiness she recommended.  YUM!
