About the Book:

After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.

As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.
But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

My thoughts!

I loved this book! It was just such a sweet love story! I mean what´s not to love. It was also great to read a real love story from a guy´s perspective. And even though the concept is not new and we have read stories like these a hundred times before this one had a kind of depth that I really enjoyed reading. And the mystery around Sky really kept your interest throughout the book. You know there is something about her, something she is hiding but you just can´t put your finger on it.
Jameson is such a great guy and you just have to like him really and you really don´t get what Sarah is thinking when she falls for the idiotic but popular jock! But when Jameson meets Sky everything changes since she demands complete honesty from him but does not give the same in return. So during the entire book you just keep wondering what the deal is with Sky, what is she hiding? 
It is such a lovely story and the author really knows how to write! I recommend this to everyone who like some depth in their romance reading.
