MY REVIEW -
If there is more mismatch couple than Stephanie Kendrick and Ethan Price.
Stephanie Kendrick would never go home – even if it means staying at her cheating ex-boyfriend’s apartment and put up with the agonizing sounds coming from his bedroom with the girl he cheated on her – it’s not paradise, but at least she has a place to sleep. Instead of coming home, she took a summer class on screenwriting with Hollywood’s best, but never expected to be paired with a preppy, spoiled, rich frat boy.
Goth girls were never Ethan Price’s type, but there’s something about Stephanie that draws him to her. Never mind the dark-make ups, combat boots, piercings and cargo pants. He wanted to spend time anywhere but interning at his father’s office. Infidelity was overwhelming him. Catching people close to him doing stuffs they shouldn’t do is just devastating for him. He thought he had the perfect family and the perfect relationship – oh boy, he was so wrong.
Not to mention, his mother is working overtime for a reunion between him and his cheating ex-girlfriend. So he did what a desperate rich guy would not normally do – ask the Goth-girl to be his girlfriend, offer a house to stay, pay for a make-over, buy new clothes, and an instant screenplay. What he doesn’t know is that she used to be one of those over-achiever normal girls, but things from the past (things she wouldn’t talk about) had made her an angry, isolated and sad person.
You will grow to love both characters as the story goes. They have been through a lot of pains and betrayals and have adapted differently to the circumstances. I understand why Stephanie didn’t want to come home – and where her hurt was coming from. It may have taken a broken heart for her to go home, but her homecoming was one of my favorite scenes in this book.
The more he knew her, the closer they get, the more kissed they shared – the more he like her. Sometimes their pretend game felt real rather than a charade. Kissing was no longer for the benefit of an audience, but a call of passion. Conflicts arise as reality sets in. Doubt begins to swarm: DID ETHAN FALL IN LOVE WITH THE GOTH OR THE BARBIE? Will she ever fit into his world? Will their attraction be enough?
I had fun reading this! A classic plot with a twist, interesting characters, witty banters, unforeseen turns, and great ending! I laughed, swooned, fell in love and well, broke my heart for both characters.
