This book bring in characters from the first in the series, Just Pretending. However, we get to see them in a whole new way. This book is about what love can do, and weather or not people can truly change.

Fun Series

This book is a light but fun read, made up of three YA contemporary romance novellas. All three are woven together, but can also be read as individuals!

Over it....

I read these book in college when everyone was reading them and they were "good." However, now that I read YA all the time I know that they are lacking in so many ways! Also, after reading The Host which is also my Myers, I am sad that she wrote...
