Buy it now!

This is a Mature Young Adult Novel and includes references to sex and adult language.

Jamie Grey grew up tossed around between foster homes. At an early age he shut the world out, deciding he wouldn’t care. Whatever life had to throw at him, he would look the other way. Now his senior year is about to start and he’s been forced into yet another new home. This will be the last time, he assures himself. When an unexpected curveball comes his way in the form of a certain stubborn seventeen year old girl, Jamie soon finds out that life doesn’t always work out the way you plan it.

Beckett Chase has been entitled her entire life. Living in the plush landscape of Palm Beach, Florida, she’s never wanted for anything. She’s always taken what and who she wants with no remorse. When she sets her sights on Jamie Grey and she’s met with rejection, her descent from the top begins.

With a twist of events causing Jamie and Beckett’s worlds to collide, will they be able to put aside their differences or will fate intervene offering an entirely different option?

Christina says...

Jamie Grey is a product of the foster system. Bounced from one home to the next. Jamie is just trying to make it to his 18th birthday so he can be free. That is until he is placed in the home of the Chase family.

Beckett Chase has the spoiled rich kid act down to almost perfection. Her and her friends remind me of the mean girls from high school. When Jamie shows up at her house she puts on the works to show her disdain to having him there.

Jamie's story was a sucker punch to the gut. I felt so bad for him from the beginning.  Wanted to jump in the book and rescue him myself. And Beckett she was a witch! But Jamie saw something in her. Beckett has two sides, One she puts out to her friends and one she tucks away. Beckett can't hide that side from Jamie he can see right through her. Beckett stumbles from the top of the social ladder and she realizes all that she has done to her friends for years. She takes a step back and that hidden Beckett persona comes out. When emotions bubble to the surface that's when things start going wrong. Jamie's stay at the Chase home is in Jeopardy. Can Beckett and Jamie survive? I think you will enjoy reading and finding out the fate of Jamie and Beckett as much as I did.  I give it 4 stars.
