Summary

Ballerina Dovey Beckham is a scholarship student at Briarwood, determined to prove that she's more than just a girl with the wrong pedigree. She does whatever it takes to succeed, even if that means surrendering her body - but she will never surrender her heart.

Until the day she meets him and he rips apart all her well-laid plans. Suddenly, the girl everyone thought was unbreakable might just shatter.

Cuba "Hollywood" Hudson is rich, spoiled, and a star football player. With his fast cars and superficial girlfriends, he lives the high-life, hiding his secrets from the world.

Until the day he meets her, and she offers him something he's never tasted: love.

But once-in-a-lifetime kind of love doesn't come easy. When trust crumbles and doubts creep in, both will have to decide to either love or let go forever.

performing/ editing awful

The editing was awful, especially with the male voice. would completely change tone/ speed/ reflection in the middle of a sentence.

ok story line but a lot of it seems very far fetched.

DNF

So disappointed that this turned out to be not the story the blurb promoted. This is about a high school girl pining for and being caring and loving while making goo goo eyes at a jerk who calls her trash and whore and who left her after their first night together to continue on his manwhore ways. Girl needs self-respect. Also the mob is here (headed by her dad) and she has to sell cocaine at school or else. WTF. I’m out.

narrator ruined the book for me

the male narrator ruined the story for me, the constant change in his voice was very confusing and made it hard to get engrossed in the actual story. I ended up not finishing

Can’t believe I listened to the whole thing

I’m pretty easy to please with audiobooks. I don’t think too deeply about them, I just enjoy listening while I work around the house and run errands. As such, this is the first critical review I’ve made. I loved the 1st book in this series, but the male narrator for this book was boring and does not annunciate words correctly. For instance kitten would be pronounced “ki-en”, mitten would be “mi-en”. Drove me nuts. There wasn’t a strong enough story line to make me glad I finished the book. I’m hoping the 3rd book will be worthwhile.

Weird narration

The male narrator seemed to switch from talking right close to the mic to far away. I don't know if it was the narrator or the production of it. The female narration was fine.

I really did like this a bit more than the first in the series. This one can stand alone and just overlaps the first as far as characters. There is something this novel doesn't conclude with a different character but no true cliffhanger.
