Initially I came across this book on the booktube community and added it to my wish list. Back in January I actually spotted it in a book store among the sale and thought I would buy it while it was such a bargain.
The plot follows the lives of Ashton, the daughter of a minister and Beau Vincent, the town’s bad boy. As you expect this is a romance about the good girl falling for the bad boy. What you don’t expect is that Ashton’s boyfriend Sawyer who is consequently Beau’s cousin is out of town for a few weeks, leaving Beau and Ashton’s romance to blossom. Details are not spared in this book and the minister’s daughter doesn’t keep her innocent reputation for very long. The entire plot was a mystery because from the first few pages anything was a possibility.
A nice touch to the book was that the entire plot was written from two perspectives, both Ashton and Beau’s so you get to uncover the thoughts of both characters and become an omniscient reader, sometimes even provoking an inner voice of ‘What, don’t say that!’
Overall I enjoyed the book; the plot was nicely laid out however the general lack of morals was slightly frustrating. Towards the end there’s a feeling that the actions were justified and acceptable because everyone just moves on in a matter of days. I’m giving this book a 3 out of 5 over on goodreads. If you like a romance that doesn’t hold back on the details and a good girl goes bad plot, then this is the book for you. Why not give it a go!
