Blurb: Written by authors Cassie Mae and Theresa Paolo under the pen names Becca Ann and Tessa Marie
Lexie Boggs needs out of her house… away from her alcoholic mother and far away from the “white trash” label that’s been smacked across her chest. She’s saved every penny from her multiple jobs so she can dart out of there as soon as she graduates. But there’s something else she wants so badly she’s willing to spend every dime she has. Her senior class trip and the chance to seduce the senior hottie, Sean Dixon.
Ryan Parker knows how much college means to his best friend, Lexie. He also knows Sean is a player on a search for how many girls he can get in his bed. So instead of letting Lexie drain out her piggy bank, he forks out the dough to get her on the senior ski trip. Not only because she’s his best friend, but because he’s face-planted in love with her.
When Ryan and Lexie get jammed in the same cabin, with one king-sized bed and a whole lot of history, Ryan fights to keep his feelings hidden, while Lexie discovers some of hers.
So this is my 10th…Er… 11th book by Cassie Mae AKA Becca Ann I think. It’s a sweet YA love story. I had a few issues with it though. And I don’t know if its because I’ve read so many of her books that I am familiar with them now or if I just have a stick up my butt.
First off, Ryan was kind of a doormat for me in this book. I get why he did it but it still irritated me. Secondly, I found Lexie was a bit too self involved for me. She didn’t really take anything Ryan had to say in to account. He is supposed to be her best friend and she disregarded his input.
Other than that, the story was awesome. The setting was romantic and the clumsiness was hilarious. I especially loved the supporting characters, Nate and Kaylee and her alcoholic mother was a nice touch. I can totally relate to that. Their love story was solid and gave a deeper look into their lives that I enjoyed.
I found the climax to be a bit overdone but they ARE teenagers so a little over the top was to be expected. But the make up scenes were THE BEST. Super hot for a YA.
