Four days left.
Private beach (…and boat).
Not so invisible girl.
And maybe less of a jerk-faced bully than originally thought.

What’s the worst (or the best) that could happen?

Kaitlyn is finding life outside of the science cabinet of obscurity to be quite illuminating …and so are her pants.

When things heat up between Kaitlyn Parker and Martin—previously known as the jerk-faced bully—Sandeke, she places her trust in the one person she never thought capable of earning it, let alone keeping it safe. Fortunately or unfortunately for Kaitlyn, where she gives her trust she can’t help but also give her heart.

But how will the world beyond the sanctuary of their newfound connection react to their relationship? Soon senators, chinless billionaires, and elements beyond Martin and Kaitlyn’s control want to weigh in on the young couple’s future.

Navigating the chaotic inferno of new love might be more than Kaitlyn bargained for, and much, much more than her trust—or her heart—can handle.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Mature Content

Although I liked this more than the first book, I still wasn’t in love with it.

In this installment, Kaitlyn and Martin take their relationship to the next level. Meaning: sex sex sex. Yes, people. This book has them sleeping together like bunnies in the Spring.

I didn’t find Kaitlyn as annoying as I did in Attractions. She said a lot of things that made me say “Yes, girl! Amen to that!!”

“I’m not going to magically think I’m beautiful or perfect or talented just because you do. I have to get there for myself.”


“If I base my self-worth on someone else’s opinion or view of me, then I will also base my lack of worth on that person’s opinion as well.”

If you’ve read my review for Attractions, I made it clear that Sam is my favorite character. She still is! She gave Kaitlyn some sage advice about relationships. Kaitlyn’s lucky to have her in her life.

“Never accept less than his best.”

This story is not without its share of angst. Kaitlyn and Martin still have a long way to go before their happily ever after.
