When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.
Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.
Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.

My Thoughts:
From the first time I saw it, I knew that I HAVE to read this book. I just love the cover (look at it! Isn't in gorgeous?!)  and I also really like romantic stories that are told from two POVs.
I had high expectations from this book and I wasn't disappointed.
When I started this book I had no idea where the plot will go... I tried to guess how Drake and Lacey will fall in love and I was totally wrong. I can't tell you how they meet, because it will spoil the beginning of the book for you, so I'll only say that it was really a big surprise!! I laughed soooo hard when I found out!! LOL
Talking about Drake and Lacey - the romance in this book was very intense and mature. I'm sure that many people will enjoy reading about it, but it was kind of inappropriate for my age... I had to skip entire parts because they were way too, well, naughty for me. I guess I'm just not the right audience for this book.
Even though, I still enjoyed reading about how Lacey changed Derek's way of life and how his love for her changed him. In the beginning of the book I just HATED Derek! He was such a jerk. I couldn't understand why Lacey was falling for him... But, as the book progressed, he became much less self-absorbed and started to think about other people around him. Overall, the character development in this book was very good. I could actually SEE the characters changing and growing up.
I enjoyed this book a lot!! It was a very quick read, perfect for hot summer days on the beach. I recommend it to NA and romance fans.

  3. I think you gotta be careful with NA books, they have adult content.
    I love this cover! It sounds like a really good read, I have heard some good things. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    1. I know... I'm a little too young for the NA genre. =\
      Thanks (:
