I tried so hard to like this book more than I did because of all of the wonderful reviews on Goodreads, really I did. The beginning started off slow for me and I nearly forced myself to continue reading the first 30% of the book. But, I soldiered on and I'm glad I did because it really is a good book!
I loved Xander, he was adorable! He definitely has book boyfriend potential! And I really did like Caymen's sarcasm - I would reread this book just for that! But, I didn't like her mom or the things she did. I understand her reasoning, in her mind anyway, for how she went about things but I don't like her. Or the way she basically just left Caymen to run the store all the time. Not cool.
I really enjoyed this book but there's something lacking in it that keeps me from giving it 5 stars... When I find out what it is i'll have to let you all know. On the plus side, I will be giving Kasie West another chance with other books, she does weave a nice YA tale!
