I was really looking forward to reading this!

What I Loved: Caymen is a champion for sarcastic girls everywhere and I loved her! She has spent her whole life living with her single mother above their creepy little doll shop in the same small town believing that rich people are of the debil. Okay, so maybe that's a bit extreme, however, her mother has done a pretty decent job of clouding Caymen's judgement where people with money are concerned. There is so much Caymen would like to see and do and experience but she doesn't dare pursue it because she knows without her, the shop would fall apart and where would that leave her Mom?

Everything changes when tall, dark and persistent Xander walks into the store one day. He's not only rich, but he's cute, funny and he "gets" Caymen's dry sense of humor. Together they embark on a journey of "career days" where they take turns trying to help each other figure out what it is they really want to do with their lives, because you see, even rich kids have expectations put upon them by well-meaning parents.

The more time Caymen spends with Xander, the more he unnerves her. Xander is one of the few people in her life, besides her BFF Skye, who can see right through her veneer, can tell when she's using her sarcasm as a defense mechanism. He doesn't let her make excuses or settle and he's constantly encouraging Caymen which makes him all kinds of swoonilicious. All.Kinds.

But then the unexpected happens and Caymen's world is turned upside down leaving her hurt, confused and faced with the truth that she and Xander may be more alike than she ever imagined.

What Left Me Wanting More: Nothing.

Final Verdict: Intelligent, witty and romantic. Makes for a great summer read!

Favorite Quote(s): "In case of fire there is no clear exit to the door. I'd be pushing babies out of the way to escape. Fake babies, but still."
"Redrum."
