Synopsis (from Goodreads):
There's bound to be trouble in Paradise . . .

When her parents decide a change will be good for her, seventeen-year-old Lexie Atkinson never expected they'd send her all the way to Paradise City. Coming from a predictable life of home schooling on a rural Australian property, she's sure that Paradise will be amazing. But when she's thrust into a public school without a friendly face in sight, and forced to share a room with her insipid, hateful cousin Amanda, Lexie's not so sure.

Hanging out with the self-proclaimed beach bums of the city, sneaking out, late night parties and parking with boys are all things Lexie's never experienced, but all that's about to change. It's new, terrifying . . . and exciting. But when she meets Luke Ballantine, exciting doesn't even come close to describing her new life. Trouble with a capital T, Luke is impulsive, charming and answers to no one. The resident bad-boy leader of the group, he's sexier than any boy Lexie has ever known.

Amidst the stolen moments of knowing looks and heated touches, Lexie can't help but wonder if Luke is going to be good for her . . . or very, very bad?

My Reviews:
So far I have very much enjoyed Duggan’s other series and was interested when I noticed that she had a new book coming out, I was hoping this book might be a little edgy than her other books. But I did like Lexie straight away, There was something fantastic about her small town girl with these big dreams and her amazing great attitude.

Lexie and Luke were heaps of fun, especially their banter and very funny moments most probably made this entire book seem so fun and very engaging with the secondary characters that I wished had a little bit more flashed out. But it is going to make the excitement to see what comes next in the series and what will be in store for them.

My Rating:
