The perfect guy, the perfect location. What could go wrong?
Hadley Daniels’s life seems perfect…
Before the beginning of sophomore year of high school, Hadley and her family move to a beautiful beach town, where she makes amazing new friends and lands the boyfriend of her dreams—Nick Jenkins. He’s the kind of guy every girl swoons over, and it isn’t long until Hadley discovers some are still swooning.
A famous ex-girlfriend makes matters more complicated…
After some time dating, Hadley and Nick form a deep bond. But insecurity sets in when Hadley discovers her boyfriend once had a huge crush on her friend—who just happens to be the beautiful former teen TV star, Simone Hendrickson.
The past is the past—or so they say…
Hadley confronts Nick, who confesses about his history with Simone. Though he claims to only have eyes for Hadley now, it’s hard to believe—especially when she’s blindsided with the news that Nick and Simone kissed after school.
Now Hadley must determine who is telling the truth. Love, betrayal, friendship…who needs soap opera drama when you’re busy competing with a star?
I did enjoy this story even without reading the first one. I was a little unsure though about how Hadley could be friends with some of them like Morgan because she is so rude and mean. Her friends are also a lot more affectionate then they should be knowing that Hadley and Nick are together and that bothered me at times. I know that being in high school leads to a lot of insecurities and second guessing things but Hadley just gets insecure about everything. Even when she had no reason to be sometimes. She voices some concerns and she and Nick would talk about them and she’d be ok and then go right back to feeling what she felt before. However I did enjoy this and I read it very quickly. Sometimes characters or events would be brought up and I’d wish I’d read the first one before to better understand more, but I got right back into the story quickly. It was a cute, quick read and I did enjoy it.
