The only problem is Toby is her best friend's twin, and Tori has a very firm "no dating the brother" policy.
But Becca's grade has hit rock bottom and she needs a tutor. It just so happens that Toby is a math genius and more than happy to help-lucky her! Working so closely with the handsome, popular Toby, Becca can't hide her attraction, and it soon becomes obvious he feels the same way.
Becca doesn't want to lose her best friend, but she isn't willing to give up Toby either.
At first, sneaking around is fun, stealing kisses right under Tori's nose. But things take an ugly turn when Toby's ex-girlfriend Meredith catches them together. Meredith demands Toby take her back and restore her reputation, or she'll tell Tori their secret. Do they dare tell Tori the truth? Or would that just make things worse?
Surrounded by secrets and knee-deep in deception, something has to give...
How far is Meredith willing to go to keep Toby and Becca apart?
And how much is Becca willing to risk to keep...

* This semi-ranty review may contain spoilers. Read on at your own risk. * Now anyone who knows me or reads my reviews knows I never talk badly about books. Everyone has their own opinions, but I try to always be very cognizant of others and their feelings. But this book and I DID NOT get along. At all. So as you can imagine, this is a very difficult review for me to write. But I just have to get my feelings out there. I mean, what good is our reviews if we aren’t critical? We can’t love ALL the books, right? I’m sure there are lots of people that would really enjoy this one. Sadly, I wasn’t one of them. I just couldn’t grasp what was going on with this group. We have Becca, who is best friend’s with Tori. Then we have Tori’s twin brother, Toby. Well, these three have been besties most of their life, but for some reason all of a sudden Becca is infatuated with Toby. And guess what… he likes her too!! I’m not sure why all of a sudden after all these years these two finally became attracted to each other, but they did. And then they start studying together, which turns to dating/hooking up behind Tori’s back. They use the tutoring as an excuse for why they’re spending so much time together. What I Didn’t Like: The toxic friendship between Becca and Tori. I just couldn’t understand why these two were still friends after all this time. They did NOT make a good pair. The constant “what’s wrong?” and “you seem different today.” from Tori to Becca. Apparently Becca was acting different as she stared obsessively at Toby 24 hours a day. Again, something that just came out of nowhere, though they’ve been friends for many, many years. ALL THE LIES. It was excessive, to the point of being infuriating. What I Liked: The beautiful cover! ♥ I don’t know… the overall synopsis sounded pretty interesting to me. I tend to really enjoy this type of story, plus I’ve really enjoyed other work by Ashelyn Drake, so I had such high hopes for this one. But basically, I just couldn’t get my head around what the heck was going on. I absolutely despised the friendship between Becca and Tori. It was so toxic and I couldn’t understand why they were still friends after all this time. Yeah. Soooo, I guess I’ll stop ranting now. It’s just one of those books that I wish I didn’t read. And it actually pains me to have to review it so negatively. I feel terrible. If this book sounds like something you’d be interested in reading, please check out other reviews around since I’m sure there are lots of fans. Don’t just take my word for it. We all have different opinions, and that’s what makes what we do so wonderful. Right? :) (Thanks to Inkslinger PR for the review copy!)
A Great Angsty YA Read This book was a really terrific read, the author has done a brilliant job with everything, the writing is awesome, the plot is thick, sweet, full of angst and drama, complicated and very well laid out. The characters are so very real and relatable, you can't help but to feel for them, with them. Becca is a sweet girl and has had a crush on the forbidden Toby and Toby is also a pretty sweet and funny guy. As the two try to be together in secret, the secrets and lies build and build. Will Toby and Becca get to be together without losing Toby's sister and Becca's best friend? Or will they be crushed by all of the lies. What will happen if and when their secret is exposed? Have a read and find out. I definitely recommend this book, perfect not only for young adults, but also anyone who enjoys a good YA book, and an angst ridden romance. I was given a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.
