Publisher's Summary

My life has always been safe. I like it that way. I grew up in a fake society where plastic hearts rule. If our hearts are made of plastic, they can never be broken. My parents have expectations and I do everything I can to meet them, even if it means giving up on my own dreams. Now, all I want is to be free to make my own choices.

Dane Wright is everything I have been warned to stay away from. We met one night while I was with my perfect, parent-approved boyfriend and I haven't stopped thinking about him. I don't want to like him. I am doing everything I can to ignore his pull, but my heart seems to want what it cannot have, what it has never had.

Can he measure up? He may think I am too good for him, but maybe he is too good for me. Life is a series of choices and I have never been able to make my own. Until one day, when my heart decides to make a choice for me.

    "Good book"

    A good story (though not incredible)

    Well written, decent character development, and a predictable but still enjoyable plot.

    However, for me, the narrators voice was extremely irritating and nasal.

    "This was not bad, just okay for me."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa De Jong? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would try another book by Lisa De Jong. The writing was not bad at all. The flow of the story was very good. I really loved Dane and sometimes wondered why he loved Alex so much. I just feel like Alexandra grew up in the VERY rich lifestyle and not sure she will be able to ever live without it. She says she will, but not sure I believe it. When Alex and Dane went out, it sounded like Dane paid for everything even though he was the one putting himself through school and working. Alex never worked a day in her life. She never even thought of getting a job during winter or spring break. I hate to say this but at times while I was reading this I was thinking Alex was whining about "rich girl problems". There are many people out there who have no family support financially or emotionally.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did a decent job. I think some of the male voices needed some work. At times, when she did Dane's voice she sounded like Millhouse from The Simpsons. She did the female voices very well.

    "Awesome Book"

    I've read several books from Lisa de Jong and loved them all. This was my first audio from her and overall I enjoyed it. I liked the narrator except, when she quoted other female characters. It was almost as if she over exaggerated the voices.
