I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Okay, this book has quite a cliched storyline, but hey, let’s give it some credit where it’s due, alright? Luke, who has always been a bad boy in his school, is known for his notorious playboy reputation and the only thing on his mind is obviously sex. So when he meets new girl, Hailey, he totally wanted to get her into his bed. But soon, he realises that there’s more to Hailey than meets the eye. Hailey seemed like a normal girl, but behind closed doors, she’s actually a mother due to a mistake in the past. Juggling school, work and her little son, she struggles to keep her secret from everyone, including the hot guy who seems to be chasing her, Luke. Soon, her lies would catch up with her. Would Luke stay or bail?
Awwwwww. I’ve read a few books that have similar plot, so I wasn’t really that into reading this book. I have to admit that at the start, I was abit irked by the way the story was going. It seemed to simple. Hmm, how do I explain it? The way the story was being told, it seemed like storytelling. But afterwards, the book got quite interesting that I didn’t mind about the story. And Luke is my favorite character. I’ve liked him since the start of the book as he didn’t seem as bad as how he was supposed to be portrayed. I guess from the start, you could actually see that he was the good guy HAHA. And he’s hot too 😉 So yeah, 4 out of 5 for this amazingly cliched but interesting book hahah.
