Salem Cruz grew up in a house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn't wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her: the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who'd been head over heels in love with her little sister.
Now fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.
THE NARRATORS ON THIS ONE WERE PRETTY GOOD. ALEXANDRA MARCUSE AND CODY HAMMERSMITH PORTRAYED ROWDY AND SALEM PERFECTLY. I FELL IN LOVE WITH SALEM ALMOST FROM THE START, AND ROWDY, WELL WHO WOULDN'T LOVE ROWDY.
