Amanda’s 4 1/2 Star Review:

AMANDA’S 4 1/2 DRAMA-FILLED STAR THOUGHTS

Put your big girl pants on and get ready for a complete cluster of DRAMA!  Every other page I was like WTF is going on. . .Oh my god I want to smack him/her. . .Ahhh I’m so annoyed!!!  But of course I had to just keep reading because I was hooked and just had to know!  And by the end, OMG I can’t wait for more from this series!  Get Ready. . .
 
“You can only give your heart away once; after that, everything else will chase your first love.”
 
Olivia Kaspen’s first impression of Caleb Drake was that he was a sexy, cocky jock!  After he continually tried to get her to date him, she finally gave in.  But she has trouble opening up and trusting people because of her past.  Their relationship in college was a constant up and down.  When she finally starts to open up and falls in love, all the lies and secrets tear them apart.  
 
“I was a relationship retard.  I kicked, shoved, and punched people out of my life, so they never had a chance to hurt me.”
 
Now years later Caleb has been in an accident and has lost his memory.  He can’t remember his new girlfriend (Leah- ugh hate her)or anyone else.  Olivia is still in love with him and feels this is her chance to make him love her again. So she decides to not tell him who she is and make him fall for her again.  But Leah won’t give up without a fight.  It is a constant back and forth with these 2 ladies!  I wanted to smack them both more than once! 
 
“You will remember me every day for the rest of your life because I was the one and you threw me away.”
 
But what happens when Caleb may love Olivia?  Will her lies and deceit catch up with her?  Or will he finally see Leah’s wicked way? 
 
DRAMA!  DRAMA!  DRAMA!  But don’t we all love a little drama???  I know I do!  It is full of dishonesty and deceit! I loved how it went back into the past and then to the present, just so you had the whole story!  Now don’t slap me, when the characters make you want to slap them, because they will!  I can’t wait for more of this series!  *Excited!!*
