Let’s face it, Aiden is a douche. I hate the way he treats Kaye, like she should be grateful to know him, let alone be in a relationship. When you have parents breathing down your neck about college and doing great at everything, it’s easy to just go along with whatever. So, I can understand why Kaye put up with Aiden for as long as she did. That’s not to say that I didn’t want to yell at her – I’ve been dying to do it since the last book. Sawyer is your ever present bad boy. Well, that’s not entirely true. I thought that it would be bittersweet when it came to his character. Sure, I love the mascot who is always up to no good. I love the sweet and caring Sawyer more. He had me swooning, swear to god. Kaye doesn’t really know what to think at first when she realizes that Sawyer is really in to her. After all the time spent together during class, games, and meetings, I just knew that sparks would fly between these two. The ending wrapped up nicely and it wasn’t overly done.
This is one series that I would recommend to any lover of teen romance. It’s not all sunshine and roses, and that’s precisely why I love it so much. You get the good right along with the bad, there’s no in between. The couples are adorable, and the everyday high school drama will keep you entertained throughout. There are some cliche` notions here and there, but they didn’t make me want to stop reading. Definitely recommended!!
