From Goodreads:

How did my life get so broken?  It’s a question Lacey St. James asks herself every day.  Stuck raising her little brother in a trailer park while she works a dead end job at a grocery store, she has a stalker exboyfriend, a bad reputation, and no way out.  

And then, she meets Everett, who changes her entire existence.

Everett is an outsider who’s housesitting his family’s mansion off the coast, and for reasons Lacey can’t understand, he’s completely transfixed by her. He seems determined to show her that life can offer more than she’d ever hoped for, if only she believes in herself.  She desperately yearns to trust him, but what happens when she finds out that everything he’s told her is a lie? 

My thoughts:

I couldn't stop reading this book and when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about what was gonna happen next. 

Lacey meets Everett at a bar where Ashley, her so called friend, likes to party. Ashley wants to get with Everett but he wants nothing to do with her. He would rather talk to Lacey. After Everett saves Lacey from her on again and off again boyfriend Macon they start hanging out. 
After losing her job at the grocery store because of Macon she studies to get her GED with Everett's help. She gets a job at the country club with the help from Clare who works there as a host.
Lacey starts to live with Everett after she is kicked out of her grandmother's trailer for saying that she is abusing Davy (Lacey's little brother). 
At an end of the summer party at Everett's house Lacey finds out that he is rich and that his family actually owns the house that they live in and finds out his big secret. She ends up leaving the house and him and goes and lives with a new found friend who has a unused trailer on her property.
At the end they end up together.

There are ups and downs in the book. I laughed in places and I cried in others. I would have to say that my rating for this book is a 4 1/2 stars.
