What I Thought
I could not put this book down, I read it within hours, I was hooked. And i need Paradise road now!! Cj Duggan is one of my favourite authors and this book just proves why she is so ace! Lexi is desperate to get away from her super quiet home town where she is home schooled. She cant wait to go to an actual school, One that her cousin also attends. She wants to experience what most teenage girls do. And boy, does she get plenty of new experiences. They also all link back to one sexy, surfer bad boy, Luke Ballantine. Although everything doesnt turn out or run as smoothly as Lexie had imagined it would. School isnt how she thought it would be at first, Her relationship with her cousin, Amanda, is strained and never in her wildest dreams, did Lexi think she would be sneaking out of her bedroom window in the middle of the night to meet up with boys and hang out at a bar. Luke Ballantine certainly brings out the bad girl in Lexi. The secondary characters, Amanda, Boon, Laura and Dean are fun and i look forward to seeing what they are up to in the next book. I so dont want to wait until September for the next book, I need to know how Lexi and Luke move forward. Paradise City is a great romance and YA book. I always highly recommend Cj’s books and Paradise City is no exception. I am already super excited for Paradise Road.
