Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.
Jude's everything she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find out, is the only thing she's incapable of.
For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.
They already knew each other before they ended up in the same high school He made her hair burn. Really. She was seen with him by the wrong people so they made a point buy trying to burn her with gasoline. yup. From there on he doesn't call, talk or even show up to give her an explanation. Two weeks pass by and the new school starts.
So you see the tension when they see each other in school, where she is labeled SLUT because they're story is already known by everybody. And so he threatens the school and with only a word Lucy becomes the new "it" girl.
The book exploits they're relationship and how a good old bad boy fall for the good girl She has her future planed out and he thinks he his a nobody. He is the guy everyone is afraid of, the guy you cross the street for and the guy who has a future in prison already planned. She wants to change that.
Jude is awesome, is character is just described perfectly and his flaws make him more likable. If that's possible. He is HOT. Let's just say that. But he has a troubled pass, one that he cannot ignore. And with the book you will see in the end, when the big secret blows up, why he is like that.
Lucy. She wants to go to Julliard. She annoys me but i like her. Lucy is a "I-don't-care-what-you-think-
kind of gal so she is cool with the rumors. Thought she is going to mess up a lot during the book, and going to choose the wrong guy for several times i think her progress is very believable and unique. She's a ballerina, the perfect little future on the way. And she will let nobody get in the way. Not Diamond for starters.
Oh Diamond I hate him so bad. Such bad "in a good way" character that you will feel like punching all the time. too perfect. To tidy up and too annoying.
So the overall book. i give 3.8 stars.
It's a pretty little story but nothing more. The thing that really is good is the way the characters are built and developed in the story. It has very intricate personalities.
