Caymen and her mother barely skimp by, running a tourist shop in their town. Xander is a wealthy teen, new to the area, who is set to inherit the family business and is frequently on the front page of magazines. Due to past circumstances, Caymen and her mother are wary of getting involved with anyone with money, but that doesn't Caymen's feelings from doing what they will.
This book wasn't quite as cute and mushy as P.S. I Like You, but that didn't stop me from finishing the book in a day. It was a good fluff read, if predictable.
I would give this book a 3 out of 5. It was a good fluffy romance. There are better, but this one wasn't half bad.
I love the sarcasm and the witty comments that Kasie West writes with. It's authentic and natural. It makes me wonder if she is like that in real life and it makes me want to be her best friend.
I enjoyed this book so much I immediately bought The Fill-In Boyfriend and I don't think I'll be getting any kind of sleep tonight.
Anyways Xander and Caymen are more like a real couple then a fictional pairing. I appreciate that they feel so real. I mean yeah the book had its cheesy moments but what good book doesn't? I didn't call the last 100 pages of the book which is a nice change for me. I was actually surprised.
The one problem I had was the ending. I felt like I was left with more questions then necessary. It felt like I was being set up for a sequel that will probably never happen. Here's to wishing.
Cayman is seventeen and a senior in high school, although none of this book happens at the school. She spends most of her time working at her mother’s porcelain doll shop, and lives with her mom upstairs over the shop. She buys her clothes at thrift stores, as does her best friend Skye. They live in a beach town where the rich people almost outnumber the locals. Cayman has never known her father, as he left the scene as soon as her mother told him she was pregnant. He was rich, and his parent’s hush money is what gave them the start of the doll shop. And her mom’s parents disowned her. So it’s just Cayman and her mom and has been that way for always. One day a young and very noticably rich guy comes into the store to find a present for a birthday. And that’s how this story and friendship really starts.
Cayman was so refreshing for a main character. Her specialty is sarcasm and lots of it. She uses it in all sorts of situations and most of it was really funny, although at times it wasn’t exactly appropriate. She’s a worrier, she knows the shop is failing, and her mom won’t tell her anything. Xander is the third son of a mega rich family of hotel owners. He doesn’t know what he wants to be, no more than Cayman does. So they decide to have career days where they each pick somethng to do to see if they will like that for their future. Those days in the book were some of the fun parts of the story. Of course with Xander’s money, his ideas are way more interesting than Cayman can come up with. There is problems with their relationship, namely the fact she has to hide him from her mother, instead of the other way around. Her mom has a deep seated hatred of rich people due to her past, whereas Cayman meets his parents early on. And did I mention, the tabloids that show pictures of him with another girl? Yes, there’s problems.
I ended up enjoying the whole thing. Start to finish, and it was such a quick read for me. Way less than a day. I went to look to see what other books the author had written and found two. What I also found was that these two eBooks are listed for more than you would pay at a discount store when they are brand new out. $9.99 for an older ebook is just wrong in my opinion, so I won’t be buying them. I doubt that many young adults have that kind of money for a book either. Jumping off my soapbox now! This particular book was way more reasonably priced so that’s the good news.
Highly recommended to young adult romance readers.
I don't like to go too much into plot details as I don't want to inadvertently spoil anything and well...the synopsis is right up there at the top of the page. What I like to talk about is how books make me FEEEEL. I love it when a book sucks me in right off the bat and gets me invested in the characters, makes me root for them. This books did just that and along the way it gave me (let's say it together now) ALLLLL the feels!
The chemistry between Caymen and Xander is so authentic and the affection they have for one another is hard to deny. Two totally different people from two totally different worlds...yet they find a deep and loving connection. Caymen is having a rough go of it lately and I love that Xander comes along at a moment in which she really needs someone to lift her up and help her along. Not of course without some road bumps along the way!
This is my first Kasie West book (I know...what is WRONG with me) and I can assure you it will not be my last. As a matter of fact I JUST pre-ordered On the Fence and have bumped up Pivot Point and Split Second toward the top of my TBR pile. I loved how Kasie West captured the pure emotion and feeling of Caymen's experience in this book and am excited to read her other books to see if I connect to the characters in the same way.
