It’s all fun and games
I had a simple plan for spring break.
Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.
A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.
And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.
Until someone gets hurt
But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.
The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.
And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.
Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore...
I really enjoyed this story, I haven't read anything by Jenna Bennett before, but I will be reading her from now on! I enjoyed Cassie a bunch. She was an everyday normal girl, who is smart and pretty. She is a perfect heroine to root for and want to have good things happen for her.
Then we meet Ty who seems pretty great until you find out why he seemingly keeps blowing her off. You really hope that Ty can be the guy she wants him to be for her, so you keep rooting and hoping they will hit it off and get together. While reading the other two books in this trilogy, you keep thinking poor Cassie, and the guy who won't see how wonderful she is.
Then you read her story and you think WOW look at all that has been happening while the other two were out meeting guys. I loved the bit of mystery and intrigue that was included in this story.
At the ending I was bummed a bit because I want to know more about Ty and Cassie. Do they stay together? Overall I give this book 5 stars and I am thankful I read all three books, and now even though it is only February, can I go on Spring Break? To Key West?
