Great Contemporary Romance
Alexa loves theater, but her dad thinks it's a waste of time and wants her to focus on more important things, like her grades. West has a troubled past that still haunts him today and his emotions force him into a state of social withdrawal. Put the two together and you're in for a whirlwind, especially since they're both so stubborn.
West, as expected, thinks he has Alexa all figured out when he's picked to tutor her in math. In his eyes, she's rich, preppy, and snotty, but there's a lot more to her than meets the eye. Alexa on the other hand knows nothing about West because he's so reclusive and can't decipher who he really is.
I enjoyed the building of West and Alexa's relationship and that it wasn't instant love. They have the typical teen struggles that allows you to grow closer to both West and Alexa because they're realistic. Their emotions are raw and can be felt through the pages.
Final Verdict: I recommend this book for fans of contemporary romance. It was an easy read that other fans of young adult romance will enjoy.
