My Review : I was sent this beautiful review copy by the author herself to put forward my honest and unbiased opinion.

First and foremost, I adored this book. A perfect mixture of teen drama, romance, humor and royal politics(yep).

Annie Woods follows the life of Erica Lindell, a teenager who comes to US along with her father to pursue her studies. But before going to US, she goes backpacking with her friends to Cambodia and meets Sarah, the love of her life and then the drama unfolds.

I loved how the author with simple sentences/emotions tries to convey us this pure and honest tale.

At times, I felt like being a part of Erica’s life. It was just so real and I appreciate the author for it.

And the best thing was that the novel will raise up your expectations as it proceeds. I was definitely left agape when the author left with that huge cliffhanger. I so want the second book now.

This book I promise you is not at all just lovey-dovey cute but also offers us twists and turns in the most unexpected way. I seriously not am a fan of this genre but the twists/the love triangle(?) kept me so intrigued.

I loved the whole diverse cast of the book. Undoubtedly the author has put in a lot of effort to craft each character uniquely. I am definitely a fan of the protagonist Erica. She is so fun, sporty and also a geek(yaay). I also have a soft corner for Danny,so caring.

The only con I can find in the book is that the author abruptly starts a new scene without changing the chapter or something. At times I had to re-read parts to get the whole thing. Also, I would like the if author improves her interpretation of the scenes.

But all in all I loved and lived every minute of reading this romantic drama.

This page turner of a book is definitely recommended to all the romance fans out there. Oh,and also to get you out of that monster of a reading slump.

My Rating : 4.1/5
