Summary
Brittany Ellis has created a perfect image in order to hide her imperfect home life. Alex Fuentes is a tough gang member who cares about the safety of his family, not his image. Their worlds collide in chemistry class when they are forced to be lab partners. Alex bets his friends he can sleep with Brittany, but as he attempts to seduce her, he realizes that he has feelings for this perfect “snow girl.”
Critique
A powerful and gritty story of star-crossed lovers. There are some cliches, but overall, this is a quick and enjoyable read. Steamy romance, gang violence, and alcohol use make this book more appropriate for older readers. Highly recommend.
