Tia is a party girl and she likes to have casual relationships with guys because her three sisters before her have shown Tia that falling in love only leads to trouble. So Tia doesn’t know what to do when the new guy Will doesn’t just want to hook up for one night. As they work together on the drum line in band she starts to realize that he is easy to talk to and makes her want to be a better person. She starts to contemplate what it would be like to have Will as a boyfriend.
This book is a fun romance with good characters that make it easy to read. My objections to this book being in a school library are: under-aged drinking, drug use, and casual sexual relationships. It’s too bad that it has so much adult content because the characters show growth and it’s a fun beach read.
