I received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Give Me Books!
I want to start off by stating that this was an entertaining, light read. You know those corny romance books which you read and make you feel content? This was one of those books.
Lia is a small town waitress at her parents' restaurant and she begins dating her idol, Jay Morningstar, Olympic Gold medal swimmer. I did synchronized swimming, so the snippets of the swimming world in this book were nostalgic for me, and I think that that's what made me enjoy this book the most.
Unfortunately, that is all that did it for me. The book fell flat for me, kind of soap opera-ish. It was a lot about teen attitudes, insecurities, maturing, and experimentation. Don't get me wrong, that's fine, but those subjects came on childlike in this book. There was way too much jealousy throughout this novel, and there weren't enough interesting fluctuations in the story line. Just imagine the plot being a horizontal line - the whole time.
In brief, this was an entertaining read that wasn't very deep, and impacting.
