Description

Amy has a fairy tale life planned out for herself. The only problem is life has an entirely different plan for her.

Amy, just shy of her eighteenth birthday, is about to graduate high school. She's ready to get out of small town Greenville and move to Salem with her boyfriend, Mitch who has a football scholarship. Amy plans to get a degree in education from State, just like her mom, and move back to Greenville to teach once she marries Mitch.

Dexter Baldwin, award-winning Hollywood director, is shooting a movie in Greenville that has the town all excited, including Amy's mom. Amy doesn't get all the hype, but by the time the movie wraps and Dexter leaves town it ends up changing her life forever.

Excerpt:
  Dragging my feet as I walk, I leave my room and head downstairs to face the firing squad. I step into the kitchen and my parents stop mid sentence and look at me. It’s a weird feeling, almost like I’m a toy that is being inspected for faults. They are trying to decide if I pass and get to move on with my existence or I fail and get tossed to the bottom of a trash bin.
  Dad motions for me to take a seat across the table from him. My mom gets up and stands at the sink, looking out the window. I can already tell this isn’t going to be good. I hang my head and wait for it to begin.
  “Where were you?”
  I swallow and turn to my dad. He looks disappointed, but compared to the look on my mother’s face, he looks calm and collected. I shouldn’t be surprised, he’s always been the one who steadies the ship when the waves start.
  “I… I went to Mitch’s house.”
  My mom starts to cry. I instantly feel bad, even though I’m not sure why my sneaking out would cause her to be upset emotionally. I get that she’s mad, however, this is not the response I was expecting.
  Why would me going to Mitch’s house make her cry? It really makes no sense. My dad lets out a deep sigh and drums his fingers on the table.
  “What were you doing there?”
  I wrestle with telling them the truth. They are going to be pissed either way. Maybe I should just tell them about State. I take a deep breath and ready myself, emotionally, to deal with the slew of questions and judgment that is sure to follow.

    A little drug out in spots. Otherwise a good story.
  • A Needy Main Character, Vomit-Kissing & A Cliffhanger

    This book didn’t cost me any money, but I want my time back. Amy is the most hard-luck character, okay, but she can’t take two steps without needing some guy to tell her which way to go. I think there was even a passage where she tells her new boyfriend that she needs a new dress, expecting him to come up with a solution. He suggests that she looks in her mom’s closet and she’s like, what a great idea! Totally banal. The fact that this lame story ends as a cliffhanger is even more vexing. Seriously? Let me guess - in the next book, another guy falls head over heels at first sight and feels this irresistible urge to “care for her” and then she’s torn between Guy A, B, or C. Either way, she’ll still be needy and dependent. Also, forcing two characters to kiss after one has thrown up is a HARD PASS for me. There’s nothing romantic about that, at all. That’s just plain disgusting.

    This the only thing I have read that was written by you and I can truly say I was pleasantly surprised. I like the way the story was written without all the foul language. The story was spellbinding from beginning to end.

    The book was way too long and was pretty boring. All the protagonist did was run around and ruin guys life’s with no regret. So yeah you can bet I’ll never be coming back to this author.

    The good reviews for this book must be fake. This was the worst book I’ve ever read. Horrible writing, no real story, predictable, boring, unrealistic. I can’t say enough bad things about it.

    I was looking for a free book. So glad I chose this one! I quickly fell in love with Amy. She seems like my kind of gal. Some parts of the story were a little predictable. But still a great easy read! Great “beach book” as my mama calls them.
