Publisher: Moonstruck Media

Cami Wimberley has a plan, and that plan includes no room for boys—especially the big time party animal, Hunter Wilder, no matter how handsome and charismatic he is. She’s beautiful, a senior, extremely talented, gets good grades, and is working her way toward her dream college to be a musical theater major. Everything is perfect.  Hunter Wilder does not want a girlfriend—that would complicate his life way too much right now. He especially doesn’t want this girl, Miss-Goody-Two-Shoes, so how come he can’t keep his eyes off her? He tries to keep her at arms length, but fate seems to keep pushing them together. Before long, it’s obvious to everyone they’re crushing on each other.  As sparks begin to fly, Hunter finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into hot water. Soon he’s scrambling to keep Cami from discovering his dark secret—one that can destroy their entire relationship.  - Goodreads.com


May I just say that I love the cover of this book.  This guy, whoever he is, has some amazing eyes.  Okay, that said...  I had never heard of this story when I stumbled across it, so I didn't really have any expectations of it either way.  So I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really liked this book.  This was my very first Lacey Weatherford story, and since reading it, I've picked up two more of her books.  That should tell you something.

I thought this story was pretty inventive.  Cami was such a motivated girl, that I found myself really liking how well-planned she has her future. This is a girl who knows what she wants, has it all figured out and works hard toward that goal.  I really admire that, so she was a really great character for me.  All that being said, I also really enjoyed her having to become a little flexible with the onset of Hunter into her life.  But who wouldn't adjust their plans a little for a guy like Hunter.

You just had to love this guy.  He was gorgeous, sexy, and had a thing for Cami immediately.  I love watching a "player" type guy fall for a girl and then try to convince her to date him.  But like me, she couldn't resist him.

About the only characters I really didn't like, of course, were the two who ended up being the bad guys. One I knew was a bad guy, the other grew into one.  I found that one to be a little sad because it was unexpected and kind of sad. 

This story has a pretty big twist to it that completely changes everything, and I had suspected it for some time, but was still a little surprised to find it out anyway.  Lacey Weatherford did a really good job hooking me in and making me like her characters.  This was a fun read with good sexual tension, and some really good suspenseful moments that I didn't expect.  Obviously I liked it, because I went looking for more books by her.  Check it out!
