I debated about getting this book for eons...I'm not really into young adult novels, sure twilight was decent but I tell myself it was the vampire thi..Show More »ng that got me through the intense YA story....I didn't get the same vibe from this book, I would classify it as Romance of the fluff variety.
Yes, the story revolves around a 17 year old girl....but this "girl" has been the head of her household since she was 11 due to piss poor parenting. I know a "kid" like that and trust me, she is no kid! But I see why people would confuse a younger person storyline with it being a YA novel.
There were a few steamy scenes (in full detail) and a few f-bombs dropped, but ultimately the story moved slower in the romance department because we are dealing with inexperienced kids and to have them shack up on page three would have just been horrible. So yes, this is romance not erotica, and it was predictable and full of fluff but that was what I wanted. I really wish there was a sequel to this couples story, this is part of a series and I hope the writer comes back to these two...I want to know more of their story.
So, if you are looking for some wham bam action on page 3 this is not the book for you, but if you want some fluffy romance star crossed lovers thing then add it to your cart :-)

Another wonderful addition to the Sea Breeze series. I loved Cage York in "While It Lasts" and this is a great follow up to his & Eva's love story.
