Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies’ man, fearless outfielder… Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.
Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn’t it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it’s time to let a little bad into her life.
Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer—dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer—is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, “dating” Kyle will silence the rumors.
But Faith’s plan threatens to expose Sawyer’s biggest secret of all…and that’s a risk he’s not willing to take.
Disclaimer: This book contains drop-the-book-and-fan-yourself kisses...and touches. Fall in love with a bad boy at your own risk.
Hope—an angry, hard, shining thing—crashed around her chest.
This one was a quick, cute read. Bad boy meets popular girl, kisses ensue and they go from fake relationship to real relationship.
Except…..Kyle isn’t really a bad boy. He was shy, and super awkward when it came to females. And while he did excel in the sports department he was also an excellent businessman. In short, he was a normal teenager. He just had really good acting skills that he employed to keep everyone from knowing him. And I dug that. Everyone pretends to be someone they are not in high school so I could totally relate to him in that aspect. You could tell he thought about the things that Faith told him and he wasn’t just interested in her for her looks. Shocking for a hormonal teenager I know. Just another thing that I liked about him.
Faith was a bit of an conundrum for me. She wasn’t at all what I expected either. And I don’t know if that’s a good thing. I felt she may have been a bit too shallow for me. She cared a bit too much about what people thought of her. Then again, I never grew up in the digital age so I’m not familiar with having so many people have instant access to me all the time. But I still felt she was trying a bit too hard for my tastes.
I don’t know if I’ll read anymore in this series just yet cause this is a series I have to be in the mood for.
