Overview

With a former supermodel mother and a rock-and-roll legend father, Emma Preston has the best of everything. Nothing is as perfect as it seems though. After her parents divorce, she’s forced to live with her mother in a private Santa Monica community. Ignoring their parental roles, her mother becomes more focused on climbing the social ladder while her father is off on tour.

Growing up in a trailer park with his mother, Jesse is used to people looking down on him. When his mother begs him to submit an application for a scholarship to one of Santa Monica’s top private schools, he never expects to actually get it. When he does, he is forced to attend school with a bunch of rich kids. He ignores their stares as they judge him for having tattoos and a less than impressive car. As long as he has his surfboard and the guys at the tattoo shop, he knows he can make it through.

When Jesse shows up on the first day of school, Emma can’t help but be intrigued. Her mother would never approve of Emma talking to someone so poor, but she doesn’t care because something about Jesse draws her to him.

Jesse tries to hate Emma, but he discovers that he can’t resist her. Forced to hide their relationship from Emma’s mother and everyone else around them, things start to fall apart. When Jesse’s friend, Ally, decides to interfere, things go from bad to worse.

Can they survive their first love? Or will they be left with nothing more than shattered ties?

    Yessss

    Another awesome book by an incredible writer!! I was thrown for a looop in the very beginning when i found out they were high schoolers... I was leary about it through a good part of the book because they're young, but eventually i began to change my tune! :)) The love between these two makes my heart do jumping jacks at every turn of the page... Jesse never let anyone in; until this strange rich girl showed him a compassion and love that nobody but his mother ever did. He matured right before my eyes but kept his witty and smartass remarks! Emma always had a comeback and i laughed every time!!
    If you want a good book you can get done in a few hours, i would recommend this book!! It's certainly an easy read and the ending will definitely surprise you and leave you wanting more! ;))

    So-so

    I was bored with this book. I spent a lot of time skimming. I honestly don't really have an opinion on it besides that....I finished it because I paid for it.

    Loved it!

    I've said it before and I’ll say it again. I am not a fan of books with high school kids… BUT I honestly loved this book.
    ...
    Emma Preston is a young girl is high school who has it all, a rock star father who she never sees and a mother who is a stuck up snob and former model. But Emma wants to be nothing like them. She is so down to earth and doesn’t judge people. She then meets to new “bad” boy is school Jesse Daniels who she knows her mother will never approve of. Jesse got into the private high school on a scholarship that his mother made him apply for and he hates every minute of it. Emma is drawn to Jesse but knows she can’t have a relationship with him because her mother would never approve because of where he comes from. But she can’t help herself and doesn’t want to stay away.

    I can’t say enough how much I loved this book and am dying for the second book Twisted Ties to come out this year!

    Amazing

    I absolutely loved her first two books so I was really excited when I saw this one too. Super sad that I have to wait for the next one, but thats okay. Just gives me another reason to reread this one when the second comes out!
    Don't even think twice about it, just read it! Promise you won't regret it.

    Really?

    Was this written by a 15 year old? So immature, naive and undeveloped.
