Quick Heads Up. The ebook is only $2.99.

So, I'm going to rip the band-aid off quick and say, through the first half of the book, I didn't like it. I guess, because it's me, and some writing styles don't hold me into a book. But, that wasn't going to just let me give up, so I continued reading and eventually got used to the writing style that Jillian was presenting. With that said, I will say, the story was very entertaining.

There's drama, love (I think), one night stands, summer flings, music gigs, hot boys, bitchy girls, everything you expect to be in a contemporary novel based on a girl going to high school.

Keatyn is the daughter of Abby (who is some big actress) and is trying to live the life at high school. Being popular, owning the best clothes, portraying herself around bitches for friends, and just trying to live life. At first, I thought she was a bitch, but once I met her "best" friends Vanessa and Rianne, well, she wasn't even close. Jillian wasn't joking when she said it was Gossip Girl meets Hollywood. I didn't really like being in her head, because all she did talk about was herself, but I'll still continue to read on, because I want to know what happens.

Vanessa and Rianne are supposedly her best friends, but I wouldn't really call them her friends at all. They're probably the definition of attention seekers. Kind of like Keatyn. But at least Keatyn has a heart.

Then we get to the boys, and man, was there alot of boys. Let's get started on Sander, he's sweet, kind, totally adorable, but he didn't have that bad boy factor that everyone seems to like, and you kind of expect what happened. Then there's Keatyn's surfer boy friends, Brooklyn and Damian. We'll start on Damian, just because, he's an up-coming rockstar, singing is his life a long with being best friends with Keats and Brooklyn, he has this funny attitude along with the rockstar side and he's just that easy to like. (Plus, I've interviewed him so you can read that here.) Brooklyn, oh Brooklyn, how I feel for thee so fast. I don't know, I have a thing for surfer boys, and it was like love at first sight, but did he like being in Keatyn's world? Well, no. But I'll still love him.

Think I'm finished? Try again. The next hot crush boy, is Cush. Cush. The boy every female wants. He's sweet, kind, funny and has that bad boy side of him. I actually think he's the perfect match for Keatyn, he treated her exactly how she wanted to be treated, and never betrayed the trust they had with each other. 

So, I'll take a break on the boys for now, because there is other things to talk about, like the drama. There is just so much drama going on through-out the book, and I think that's part of the reason I was continuing to read. Okay, so there's the boy dramas, and what teenager girl doesn't experience some boy problems? If you didn't, then, you are one of the lucky few. Well done to you. Keep it up. There's also a stalker problem, but you should've known that, I mean, hello, look at the name of the book. Her friends are drama, her several flings are drama, her whole life is just drama drama drama. It was entertaining. It sounds sad, but it was.

Okay, let's get back to the boys. So due to drama with stalker, she ended up in boarding school, with which she met, wait for it... MORE boys. And, I loved these ones even more than the last. Riley and Dallas, ah, these two bring joy to me because they're just funny, they're Keatyn's first friends when she enters the school and I hope they stay, because I need to see more of them. Actually, I know they'll still be there, how could you just remove them from your life? Then we get to the other male that seems to be breaking into Keatyn's heart. Aiden. Now, personally, I don't have much interest for him, maybe because I'm all for the supporting characters and I seem to love them more than any other. BUT, there's always a but, I can see myself falling for this male that is called "The God of All Hotties." He even brought Keatyn lunch, sweet right?

So, all in all, I recommend this book for people that just need a summer read, with laughs in the middle, drama, and swoon worthy men that just make anxious until you see them again. I'm actually finding myself looking forward to the next book. Ah, this always happens.
