This book was amazing, it was actually better than I expected :)

Alexis is an unusual girl, on one hand her and her mum are always moving around, and her mum doesn't look old enough to be it, she's a writer and a bit of an outsider, so when they move to Florida so that she can start college, Alexis just wants to be normal for once.

I can totally relate to Alexis as when I was at school I was a bit like her (except the moving around part, I only moved once)

And then Tristan walks into her life (and mine) first as a friend who might be a little stalkerishy at first, but turns out to be loyal, protective and sweet and totally gorgeous.

I loved how it wasn't instant love, yes there was attraction, but it wasn't I love you even if I've only known you for like 2 seconds. And even when they admitted the love they still had tons of issues.

But that's not all, as well as having their own issues they have family secrets, add to that, the fact that Alexis isn't told any of these secrets, well trouble is bound to happen.

The secondary characters such as Sophia and Owen are well written and interesting, especially Owen, he was so sweet I wanted to hug and squeeze him.

The whole plot and writing was really good and kept you on the edge, and the cliffhanger!!! I can't wait to read the second and third book.

All of the top reviews are really misleading. I expected this book to be so full of action and story, but it was one big love drama that went around and around again for 700+ pages. It was a good tale if you're a sucker for sappy romances, and i have to admit that this is a really talented author, but i feel like she wasted too much of her talent on the love aspect. I was just bored and annoyed by the end, which is a pitey, for i feel like it could've been a much better story.
