A reality TV show has invaded a small town and turned everyone’s life upside down. Dakota has been sent to make sure that the TV show does not to irreparable damage to the small town which is where she meets Finn one day. Finn is in town because his twin brothers have come to be in the show. After caring for them for years since their parents died, Finn is not able to let them give up college to try and be on TV. As the TV show moves along, things come to a head in this little town.

Review:  It was adorable. There was nothing too angsty about it. It was light and flirty and had some fun moments. The characters were realistic. The ending was a little predictable, but hey, it did a good job getting there. There were enough moments in the book to keep me guessing which was unexpected but nice. The only things I think that took away from the story was some of the repetition. The repetition was really repetitive. The repetitiveness was a little distracting. See? Granted, it was NOT this bad in the story. But there were times I could have sworn that I had read that sentence before. This was mostly a problem when talking about feelings, which in turn wasn’t a big part of the story until the end when things were coming to climax and then being resolved. I actually really look forward to the rest in the series. I don’t think I will pre-order them or anxiously await them or anything. But when I see they are available I will seriously consider reading them.
