ABOUT THE BOOK -

Casper’s upset about the move until she meets the Roman family’s gorgeous son, Cal, but there’s a problem. A mystery surrounds him which can be summed up in one word…Kythera. Never heard of it? Neither has Casper until she finds the word tattooed on cars, paintings and all her new friends.

After Casper’s life is threatened, someone is forced to tell the truth about her parents, the Romans and Kythera’s motives for her being in Charleston. Once the truth is revealed, she must decide whether to protect her family and Kythera’s secrets or walk away from everything she has ever known.

MY REVIEW -
Even though I rated this a three, it is a good three. This book did keep my interest, there were really no slow parts. I thought the idea was fresh and original. Don't we all like reading about spoiled rich kids? And I loved the main character - Casper..

The character development, in my opinion could have been better. I loved Casper and I thought her character was great, I did really get a feel for her personality. But that's it - all the other characters were just there, names on paper. I even referred to them as "The Stepford Wives", I felt that they were fake and robotic. I even went as far as thinking that maybe that was suppose to be a part of the storyline! ... but it wasn't.

Don't get me wrong - I did enjoy the story and would still love to read the rest of the series, it was just enough to keep me interested! And I do think a teenager would like this much more than I did. I was just looking for something more.
Plus - the parents were almost nonexistent in this story so that made it a good teen book, LOL
Soooo... All-in-all I would recommend this for a teenager (the book is pretty clean), but for an adult it is just OK.

Thank you Orangeberry Book Tours for sending me this ebook to read and review, I do hope I get the second book!
