Description

Amy has a fairy tale life planned out for herself. The only problem is life has an entirely different plan for her.

Amy, just shy of her eighteenth birthday, is about to graduate high school. She's ready to get out of small town Greenville and move to Salem with her boyfriend, Mitch who has a football scholarship. Amy plans to get a degree in education from State, just like her mom, and move back to Greenville to teach once she marries Mitch.

Dexter Baldwin, award-winning Hollywood director, is shooting a movie in Greenville that has the town all excited, including Amy's mom. Amy doesn't get all the hype, but by the time the movie wraps and Dexter leaves town it ends up changing her life forever.

Excerpt:
  Dragging my feet as I walk, I leave my room and head downstairs to face the firing squad. I step into the kitchen and my parents stop mid sentence and look at me. It’s a weird feeling, almost like I’m a toy that is being inspected for faults. They are trying to decide if I pass and get to move on with my existence or I fail and get tossed to the bottom of a trash bin.
  Dad motions for me to take a seat across the table from him. My mom gets up and stands at the sink, looking out the window. I can already tell this isn’t going to be good. I hang my head and wait for it to begin.
  “Where were you?”
  I swallow and turn to my dad. He looks disappointed, but compared to the look on my mother’s face, he looks calm and collected. I shouldn’t be surprised, he’s always been the one who steadies the ship when the waves start.
  “I… I went to Mitch’s house.”
  My mom starts to cry. I instantly feel bad, even though I’m not sure why my sneaking out would cause her to be upset emotionally. I get that she’s mad, however, this is not the response I was expecting.
  Why would me going to Mitch’s house make her cry? It really makes no sense. My dad lets out a deep sigh and drums his fingers on the table.
  “What were you doing there?”
  I wrestle with telling them the truth. They are going to be pissed either way. Maybe I should just tell them about State. I take a deep breath and ready myself, emotionally, to deal with the slew of questions and judgment that is sure to follow.

    Really not anything special; caught many grammar and spelling errors, along with plot holes. Good idea just not conveyed in the right way

    A little drug out in spots. Otherwise a good story. Don’t rally care for books with no ending trying to con U into buying more. Ok book but not that great.

    If you can ignore all of the typos it’s an ok book. It ends very abruptly and forces you to have to purchase the next book in the series. Disappointing.

    Easy read! Interesting book! Story line was great but characters got lost throughout the book such as Mitch and Jess! Overall very good! Bad editing, missing words & grammar could have been better.

    The book is free so you can’t waste your money, but you will waste your time reading this book. It is one of a long series so you should expect it to end in a cliff hanger, what you should not expect is a book where the characters are not developed and you have no desire to read about them. It is not possible for me to care less about these characters going forward. I would give it a negative one star rating if that were possible.
