Summary: Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now. Jude is everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of. For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love is about to become the thing that tears them apart.
Marissa's Review: Aw! This was such a cute read. It was also one roller coaster of a book and I'm glad to say I pretty much enjoyed the ride for the most part. I was so surprised with this book though, because although some parts were predictable, (and to be fair, what contemporary chick-lit book isn't?) this book also had its fair share of plot twists. I think one of the things I also liked the most about this book was that towards the end, it actually had some really great substance to it. I really felt I understood the message that was trying to be brought out through the events that happened between Jude and Lucy. Honestly, I can't say that for most contemporary romance books. Of course, some parts of this book were a bit weird but I felt a sense of satisfaction at the end because they are just so cute together! Overall, if you're looking for a light, fun, and cute romance book that includes your typical bad boy going for the good girl, you should check this one out.
