Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom’s porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothin to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence–he’s tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know it won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But just when Xander’s loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?
This story will definitely not be for everyone.
BUT IT WAS FOR ME! Cheers to that! ;D
The reason for my disclaimer is because of one of the things that makes this book so appealing and entertaining, which is the sarcasm from Caymen. I can really understand how some people are going to see that as annoying and bratty. But I loved it. I loved every minute of this story, and I thought that the dialogue between Caymen and Xander was pitch-perfect.
This was the perfected version of This is What Happy Looks Like. TWHLL was great, and it was super entertaining, but man–Kasie West is on a level above. Cannot wait to do a PIVOT POINT review…
This book is adorable, witty, realistic, funny and overall–awesome. I love the way West gives her characters time to show themselves to their reader and the way she writes her stories. This book was everything and more that I wanted at the time, and I cannot wait to see more by West. 4.5 stars.
