Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. 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?


Review: I got this book from my secret Santa. It was on my wishlist and I really wanted to read it. So I sat down and read it all before I got up again. Since I have four kids that is hard to do.

I enjoyed reading Nat, Alec, and Demetri’s story. I just want to say that it would be hard to chose between two handsome guys. They are also famous. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the brothers and you just can’t wait to find out what is going on. It goes one way of you thinking that you know what the secret is, but when you get to the end you are very surprised about what it is. I was very happy about the choice that Nat made.

You also have the love triangle thing going on. I can say that I was pulling for Alec the whole time. If I had to pick it would be him. So for the future I’m Team Alec! I really don’t know how many books  will be in this series. I don’t believe that anyone knows that question.

All I want to say is that Rachel did a great job writing this story. I know that it had to be hard going out and trying something new. I’m glad that she did and now I am hooked. I can’t wait for the next one. I know that it will be even more exciting. I am wondering how Demetri’s story will be and what kind of woman he will end up with. He needs someone to be there that will help him with his demons.
