One Word Review: Fun

First Line: “’A totally hot ski instructor,’ Leah suddenly announced excitedly.”

Kathy’s Review: This was a fun read, I enjoyed Kate’s character. She’s had a major crush on her brothers friend Brad, and is disappointed when he shows interest in someone else. Kate soon gets to know Joe, another friend of her brothers, and finds that she has a lot in common with him. I thought Joe and Kate had good chemistry, and I really enjoyed Joe’s character. Everyone kind of paired off early on and I kind of missed getting to know the other characters, especially Leah and Allie.

The only thing that bothered me was that the high school seniors were sleeping with these college guys, not sure if they were just sleeping or if more was going on, but for some reason it rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe I’m just old fashioned. The book is actually really clean, and I still really enjoyed the story. It reminded me a little of the last book I read, The Ex Games, and I think Hayden and Nick may have had a little better chemistry than Kate and Joe. Both good reads though.
