About the Author
Lex Martin writes new adult novels, the sexy kind with lotsa angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When she's not writing, she lives a parallel life as an English teacher. She loves printing black and white photos, listening to music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust, this native Texan has lived all over the country but currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.
I did not expect to enjoy this book so well, but I fell in love with it! I can't wait to see where Martin takes us next. I loved the characters. This book reminded me of another series that took me by complete surprise and I couldn't get enough.
Gavin! He is the perfect book boyfriend and I love that Clementine calls him her book boyfriend. Its great. I also love that Clementine is a bitch most of the time. Her witty come backs to when guys make a pass are down right hilarious. I almost fell in the floor on the drug store scene.
I should probably stop now before I give anything away. Lets just say their is romance, suspense , mystery and some great witty humor. Martin sets up the next book for this series beautifully.
