BookWhisperer Rating:

Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn't care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent's divorce. But maybe that's a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.
I think that the best to break this review down is to highlight my likes and dislikes of this story. First and foremost, I like all of the characters. Sam is a young broken girl that is just trying to find her way. While, Logan and Mason are broken young men that have found the best way to short out anger is through the havoc they can cause. Thrown together by the selfish and conceded parents they begin a story of circumstance. This is where I will add in I really like the general story line as well. Three young adults thrown in orbit with one another, and what develops is a great concept. Especially as the protector traits begin to develop for Logan and Mason I really began to feel that this characters belong together. 

Although, this is where I must express my dislikes. The length of this story for he information is provides seems extremely too long. More importantly, for the first half of the book I felt like I was stumbling through a dark room trying to find direction. Nothing was coming together, and seeming to lead the story in a direction. This is a very detrimental con to a story, because it allows you time to get distracted from the story. 

Taking these various pros and cons I feel that it save to rate this story somewhere in the middle. It was not horrible, but I really think it could have used a little more work. I would like to see this story with a more direct approach that takes you through the twist and turns of the forbidden romance.
