Bit amused that as I was writing this review, I realized this is actually Book 2 in the series. Hello?! This is great though because that means the books are written well enough not to give away all the good stuff from previous books.

I really didn't want to like this book because of the main premise (which is my own fault, as I never re-read the summary after deciding I want to read the book) as it tells very clearly that Ashley, the main character is going to have problems with liking a good for her boy and a not good for her boy. I hate that! Because mean spirited boys always leave you feeling worse than the problems you fled to them with. But Ashley continually stole my heart and I read this book with a voraciousness that made me love the ending even more.

Ashley is struggling through a very bad time in her life after he father passed away. She feels the void inside her wanting to be filled, but she doesn't know how. Her mother is non-existent and her friends don't seem to care enough. She goes out of her way to fill this void. She meets new friends, falls for a good boy she truly cares about, but can't seem to pull herself away from the badness spreading inside of her that pushes her back into the arms of the really bad boy.

Very well written.
