THRILL RIDE by Rachel Hawthorne is a great book about summer fun and romance.

Megan takes a summer job at an amusement park called Thrill Ride. It is away from home, so she lives at the park with other teens who are part of this summer program.

This big decision had many factors, yet one downfall. Megan wanted to escape her mother and sister who are constantly arguing about her sister's upcoming wedding. The only downfall about being so far away is that Megan won't be close to her new, cute boyfriend, Nick. But the family drama trumped the new romance and Megan headed off to the shores of Lake Erie for Thrill Ride!

Soon after arriving, Megan meets Parker, the brother of her roommate and an all around hottie. With him around being super nice and helpful -- not to mention super adorable -- will Megan and Nick's relationship be able to survive? And if not, is there a possibility of one with Parker?

This great teen read is recommended for any teenage girl who wants to read a great book about romance and first love. Forget about a depressing story of break-ups and loves lost, read THRILL RIDE by Rachel Hawthorne and get the best pick-me-up invented -- a cute guy and happy endings.

When I first saw this book, I didn't think much of it. And then I read the first chapter. It was so good! Megan's mom sounds kinda nuts, Sarah seems way too frazzled, Nick seems kinda jerky, Jordan has way too much energy but is sweet, and Parker... Wowzas. Can I just say he seems fine? :) The best part of the book in my opinion is when he puts his number into Megan's cell phone and she asks, "what if I called you every day?" And he replies, "I wouldn't change my mind if you called every hour." It was so cute!! Totally an aww moment. I would love to see this made into a movie. I would definitely go see it. So, out of 5 stars, I give it 1,000,000,000.... haha :) But for sure a 5 :) READ THIS BOOK!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!!!!

I've reread this book at least five times since I got it. Yes, I know the ending but the little things I forget happened make me laugh every time. The cute introduction between the two characters via phone at the start was entertaining and grabbed my attention. Of course, it also led to misunderstandings but that just added some more spice to the book. It's a light little romance with a believable storyline. This is a great book to curl up with so give it a try :)

This was the hardest 150 pages to get through. This book was so boring I never throughly felt the chemistry between megan and Parker their first kiss was the most boring kiss I ever read about. I didn't fall in love with any character. And I still don't understand what was so bad about working at the gift shop besides the costume. I also hate that she got over Nick so fast and was ok with him having someone else in his life. In real life it's always hard to see an ex with someone else after we just get dumped even if we are interested in someone else. This was just a boring bad book that took me over a week to read

This book is a good fun read. The story is cute, but it does not have much depth. It's a great summer read.
