" Amy Wyse has everything—except love. She doesn’t want a boyfriend to get in the way of her dreams of college and a swimming scholarship, goals toward which she’s worked hard. But then she’s swept off her feet by Chris Shepherd, an irresistible senior from the swim team. Suddenly Amy has romance and a promising future. Or does she? As she spends more and more time with Chris, her grades plummet and her swimming deteriorates. Amy thought she could have it all—but will she be left with nothing instead?"

This is a super cheesy, super classy book of love. I LOVED it! What had me was the cheesiness of love that was going on it It was all thinking about each other, putting everything off for each other. I love first love books so if anything the cheesiness made it better.

You first love you will always remember. Amy meets a boy on her swim team and falls in love quickly. Leaving everything and anything behind. She soon realizes that homework won't finish itself and has to put her foot down when it comes to Chris. She always has to decide where there future stands.

What I like most about this book was the choice Amy had to make. Her mother, after a bad relationship always told her to be practical. Don't think about boys think about your future. Amy has to fight with her mom constantly over this issue. I felt for Amy. I knew she loved him but her mother always made her choose. It aggravated me. She made is difficult on her. Amy listen to heart and  made the right choice.

The book was really short. But the way the story flowed and ended I love it.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!



  1. Hey Savvy,
    Just dropping by for Friday Follow -- hope you have a good weekend!


  2. Sometimes I love a little cheesy, fluffy romantic tale, those balance out all the dark paranormals I read:) It seems like her mom would bother me in this one though by constantly making her choose between her future and the boy, why can't they both be important? Great review Savy!

  3. I love a short book that just is fun. Sounds like a good book. Thanks for the review!

  4. We're new to following your blog, Savannah. I just got to say I love the art work. The hooded light keeper, the wolves, a dark forest. Nice and chilling.


  5. This sounds like a great book for a break from my Paranormal books.
    Thanks for the review
