“The middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting.”
Orphaned as a kid and raised by her overly-strict aunt who is reluctant to shed some light into both her biological and adopted parents, Marsha Truitt doesn’t really know who she is. She never thought that a guy as popular as Rigel Stuart, the newly transferred quarterback star could ever notice her, especially since mean girl Trina is constantly trying to steal his attention, but he takes an interest in Marsha. And her life changes drastically. All of the sudden she doesn’t need glasses anymore, her acne goes away, her taekwondo moves improve significantly and people in school are finally paying attention to her. And stranger yet, when Rigel and Marsha touch something unexpected happens—sparks fly. Literally.
In her search for the truth, Marsha discovers secrets that will change her boring life forever… And put her in danger.
This was an entertaining enough read but in my opinion it was a bit too predictable and cliché. I also felt it lacked something. I didn’t feel overly invested in the story or the characters. And for this reason I probably won’t be continuing the series. I got this book for free on iBooks and if I could get the rest too I’d read them, but I just don’t really feel like paying for the others.
I would like to say that this is just my opinion. If the synopsis of this book sounds interesting to you, then you should give it a try. Who knows, you might enjoy it 😉
