Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.
When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal—if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house—maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.
Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless—and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.
Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out…
Kinda corny with the whole rock-star romance thing, but it was okay. Has a good bit of sexual content (which iBooks failed to say in their info section about the book). The writing was okay, could have been better, more exciting. The characters aren't exactly lovable, Jax is cute, Sadie's hardheaded, and the author pretty much made you hate her mom. Marcus was the only character I really liked, and I was disappointed that Sadie didn't pick him because that would have been a good twist.
I don't think I'd recommend this book to anyone, it wasn't interesting.
