Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once boring life, absolutely insane.
It starts with a pen. A single brush of fingers, and she is captivated.
But Alec and Demetri have a dark secret, one that could shatter their reputations and Natalee's heart. What do you do when one guy paints your life with color while the other infuses your soul with passion? How do you choose when your heart is divided?

The product description sounded really good, so for .99, I thought I would take a chance on this author I had never read before. It is always a risk, but this one paid off for me and, in the end, I thought it was a deal. If you liked Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot, or Rock and a Hard Place by Angie Stanton, then this story will appeal to you also.
Beautiful, high school senior, Natalee (Nat) has just meet the rock brothers Demetri and Alec from the band AD2 who are now going to her school. She has an immediate connection with the brooding older brother Alec, but Demetri goes for her first and she foolishly relents to his advances. The boys are on a year hiatus from performing to finish school and take a needed...
First I am glad this book cost me no more than .99. I would be rather miffed if it had. This was another instant love triangle (one that made you wonder why there was even a love triangle), hot guys, inexperienced girl who is so beautiful but doesn't even know it book. It almost felt like it was a bit trying to be a non paranormal form of twilight, and it did reference twilight a lot too. Nat talks in the beginning of her boring eyes, hair, and pale skin, and then there is more talk in the book of her clumsiness. Made me feel like the character was written to be similar to Ms. Swan.
Then there was the continuity problems that made it hard for me to read through the book smoothly because I kept stopping and having to wonder if I read that right or not because it didn't match up with things said earlier. Examples being:
She is not allowed to dye hair, not allowed to wear makeup, but then starts wearing makeup later in the book with no mention of the earlier...
This book was a complete disappointment. The characters acted and spoke in a juvenile manner. The story was completely unbelievable and confusing at times, but always predictable. The story wasn't engaging at all. I found none of the characters likable or relatable. The characters were constantly doing incredibly stupid things.
When I read stories like these I don't mind conflicted characters, but I hate users. This book was full of users.
Summary- Alec and Demetri, brothers and members of the band AD2, move to Seaside. There they meet Nat and immediately befriend her. Within 2 weeks Nat has an attraction to both boys, but starts dating Demetri. He treats her like crap, she accepts it while secretly pinning for Alec.
Nat disgusts me because she really has feelings for Alec, but he turns her down. So she runs to the next best thing even though she knows she doesn't love him. So instead of remaining single Nat uses Demetri, stringing him along...
