This is one of the most interesting read I had so far with Dakota Madison. I knew there was something wrong with Jesse Walker – I had some idea, after all, it may not be pretty normal but it is not unheard of. It’s almost a taboo, a shame, something that not everyone needed to know, but should understand.
Their first meeting was not really that eventful, considering all those awkward moments. But nevertheless, despite of their differences, one thing is for sure: Jesse wanted Sedona riled up. She might not be just some girl who likes to
Jesse Walker was the star of the basketball team, but he was failing his Jazz class – no thanks to his teacher. Sedona Miller was graduating college when some are just starting. She grew up in a collective, and he grew up in a s**tty place. She was supposed to teach him. He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with her.
But things happen, and before she knew it, she exactly in the place she was warned about: in the arms of the basketball player. Problem is, there’s this little secret that could ruin not just Jesse’s future, but the school’s basketball team as well.
I like intelligent heroines, one that can move mountains and build spaceships (or the like), and still can be sexy as hell. She can be a little naïve, a little eccentric and weird by nature. But she has a big heart, she’s brave and she’s one heck of a friend. There are times when I get a little frustrated with her – but hey, just wait until the end of the story…
He just wanted to play basketball, whatever the cost is. I like his drive, his passion and his zest for life. He’s everything you’d ever want especially if you’ll know every bit of his secret. He is an unexpected surprise (good and bad). He might keep secret, but I always knew he’s one of the good guys. He’s genuine – and one could easily fall for him. He might be one of the biggest hotshot in their school and in the court, but he’s humble. Who can resist a hot guy without an attitude?
He might not be perfect, but so is she. Together, they are not your ordinary couple, but they simply belong.
It’s a sweet tale of first loves, which may be young but you can feel the ‘real-ness’ of it. A tale so familiar, and yet Dakota Madison gave it a different voice, especially with a controversial issue that she incorporated in it which made this book a great read.
