Summary:

Gossip Girl meets Hollywood in this steamy new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.

Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most-coveted lunch table.

She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.

Because, really, things aren’t all that perfect.
Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam.
Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to.
It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect.
And, deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends.

To add to the drama, her movie star mom has a creepy stalker.
A hot, older man flirts with her and tells her they should make a movie together.
And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating him would mean committing social suicide.

So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony.
But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.

 My Thoughts:
I was really in the mood to read something that had romance in it, but with depth, because I had just finished reading Pride and Prejudice. This book, unfortunately, didn’t suffice my needs. In the beginning, I think the plot line was very basic. Two guys, one girl. The personality of the main character, Keatyn, really frustrated me. Later in the book when a character told her she was mature, I highly disagreed. There were very petty problems in this book, and for me, being a hopeless romantic, I thought I would be able to relate. The middle got interesting, because the originality of the plot increased. It didn’t just become about popularity, and teenage drama. This is why my rating is a two star. It wasn’t bad, it was just okay. I liked the concept of having a family dynamic. I enjoyed when it showed up. I was disappointed that some parts of the book where I wanted detail were stripped down to just a summary. I also didn’t understand some of the concepts or the ending of the book. Sadly, I will not be continuing this series. I really wish I had enjoyed this book more. It’s just not exactly what I was looking for.
Writing: 4/10
