A broken-down car. A girl down on her luck (again). And the rich boy in the blue Camaro.
Dulce and her mom are no strangers to going a little hungry, sleeping on a friend’s couch, or having to start over. But when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, she’s pretty sure they’ve never been this low. The last thing Dulce expects is for a cute stranger to offer his help. And a place for them to stay. She can’t help but wonder: why is Nolan Montgomery so nice? What’s in it for him? All Dulce knows is that she and Nolan come from two very different worlds, and the sooner she and her mom can get back on the road, the better. Except Sterling Beach feels more like home than anywhere she’s ever been. And what if there’s more to the rich boy than she thinks?
This sweet YA summer romance is perfect for the pool or the beach.
Welcome from the dark side! After a few months of reading nothing but drivel, I had the luck of actually reading a half-decent teen romance story.
His eyes slid down to my mouth, and for a second, I wondered if he might kiss me.
And then I realized, I wanted him to. But instead, he took a deep breath.
“I don’t think it’s lame. At all.” His fingers brushed mine, and I glanced down at our fingers. What was happening?
But before I could even think about it, Nolan was wishing me a good night.
Hardly making sense of his words, I replied, “Yeah, good night.”
Finally some tension, some anticipation, some half-decent writing. With only 119 pages, I wasn’t expecting anything much but it’s a lot better than my lowest of lows.
Dulce and her mum have been through many hardships, sometimes having to sleep on a couch or having to skip dinner some nights. But in the end they always find a solution to get by. And this is when they are on the road to a new place. But as the luck they have, they become stranded in a small town named Sterling Beach.
Things doesn’t seem to be heading their way, but a young guy, a rich looking boy pulls over and helps them out.
Nolan helps them out a lot, giving them a place to stay while their car is getting fixed. And while Dulce is at his town, he shows her around and teaches her how to surf.
Dulce loves every second of it. The more time they spend together, the more Dulce wants to stay in this town. But with the growing situation of money and needing a place of their own, she knows she can’t stay forever.
But is she willing to search for some way to stay with Nolan and live in peace?
Other people got happy endings. Movie characters got happy endings. Dulce Ortiz did not.
It just wasn’t in the cards for us, and that was okay. I’d made peace with that a long time ago. Some people got the good luck of being born into pretty advantageous circumstances. That just hadn’t been the case for me. But I had my mom, and I knew that was way more than a lot of people had, even people with money. Nobody’s life was perfect. Nolan’s wasn’t.
If you love swoon worthy kisses and sweet dates, and surfing classes, you’ll love this book! I cannot wait to read more of this series! And each books is a stand-alone in the series!
