I do not want to spend the rest of my life drawing hearts in the fogged-up glass where I waitress. I’m ready for more, for excitement, for a guy who wants more than the typical marriage and kids, blah, blah, blah. Boring. When Chad crashes into my life—literally—he’s everything I’ve been looking for and more. But I can’t help but wonder where he goes and what he does when he’s late for our dates or misses them altogether. It’s time to grab hold of that excitement and find out.
Ever since my last bad break-up I’ve been a love ’em and leave ’em kind of guy. But when Katie enters my life like some kind of beautiful vision of purity and innocence—everything I’m not—I want to be with her, and find myself doing crazy stuff like bowling and mini-golf and having fun. Except my dad has put the squeeze on my life, forcing me into an internship or I lose my trust fund. I hope Katie trusts me and doesn’t start snooping because the work I’m doing isn’t exactly safe and her life could be in danger if she gets caught.
My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars

This is book 3 in the ‘second chances’ series, but can be read as a standalone.
Katie is looking for a little excitement and adventure in her life when she meets Chad, the bad-boy with a smile, who rescues her from some unwanted attention.
Chad has troubles of his own though in the form of his father who seems determined to make him a part of the family business.
Can Chad break free from his father’s controlling ways? And can Katie ever be a bad girl?
This was a good YA contemporary romance, with a little bit of action.
Katie was a girl who followed the rules, and wanted for once to be the bad girl, and get a little excitement. I liked the way she tried to be bad but still had that sweetness to her, and I thought that she played her part perfectly to get Chad to fall for her.
The storyline in this was good, and we got a little excitement along with the romantic storyline. I liked the storyline concerning Chad and his father, although I worried that everyone involved in this book made pretty major mistakes at times.
The romance in this was done well, and the characters fell in love slowly. The chemistry between them was nice, and things didn’t move too fast. I was a little disappointed that we never got more than a couple of kisses between these two, but they were pretty sweet together.
The ending was good, and although I would have liked to have seen a bit more of this couple happy together, the ending did give us hope that they had a bright future.
Overall; a good YA contemporary romance.
7.5 out of 10.
