Kricket Hollowell is hiding from social services in Chicago. Only a few months away from her 18th birthay, Kricket is blending in until she can legally claim her independence.

All that changes when Trey Allairis discovers Kricket’s whereabouts and takes her (against her will) to her true home.

Kricket’s once quiet existence comes to complete halt and she needs to adapt in order to get back to the home she has always known.

This is listed under pretty covers. It is just gorgeous.

However, the story wasn’t as great as the cover. It was okay. Kricket is annoying. Not whining annoying but I just need to be a sarcastic ass every time someone says something to me annoying.  For a while she didn’t have an off switch it wasn’t until she falls for Try that the switch was permanently off.

I wasn’t too upset with the romance in this novel. It was obvious but it wasn’t terrible. I felt that Trey was too typical for me to fall in love with him and Kricket didn’t enough personality for me to love her.

The plot was interesting enough to keep me wanting to go through it. But I didn’t like the fact that Kricket accepted sexist comments and allowed those comments to almost kill her because she wanted to prideful and prove a point. How can that point be proven if you’re dead? -.-

I felt that this story had a good concept but it felt like the author wanted to give readers what they know instead of something more passionate and original.  Will I read the second book? Maybe. More out of curiosity to see if the author does something different.
