Simone Elkeles is by far one of my favorite authors and her books never fail to impress me. The Perfect Chemistry series is still probably my favorite of hers but this book is pretty similar (bad boy/ good girl forbidden romance...sound familiar?). I love that Ashtyn is a strong female lead character and not the typical clingy/needy girlfriend like so many teen books use. I also absolutely love how witty and sarcastic the author makes her characters! I actually had to keep myself from literally laughing out loud on several occasions! I really can't say enough good things about this author or her work. I'd recommend putting all her books on hold and having a marathon reading session during winter break because once you start reading her books, you get sucked in and can't stop! Enjoy!
