18-year old Paige Rice, an exquisite beauty from East Hampton, NY, has just celebrated her high school graduation and is expecting to spend her summer living it up with all her socialite friends. But her parents have a different idea – she is being hauled away-literally- to the mountains of Vermont for the entire summer- in an RV!
Assuming she will be an outcast amongst the other teens at the campground still does not prepare her for the treatment she receives, which is far worse than she imagined. She also isn’t prepared for Travis, the campground owner’s son and the “Sexiest” guy she has ever laid eyes on. Travis is the only one who shows any interest in getting to know Paige. The only problem is that they have to explore what lies between them in secret. But once all the secrets are stripped away, the truth may be crushing.
***Intended for mature audiences due to language and sexual content***

This story Inspired me to want to kick some A$$
Okay so this review is going to be harsh so I have to say that first and foremost. I do not want to upset anyone but I had a few problems with this story and I want to make it clear that I LOVED this story but there is a lot wrong with this story.
Paige is your typical 18 year old senior who has just graduated from high school and is planning on spending her summer living it up before she starts college in the fall. But her parents have a different idea in mind. See her parents want some quality family time together so they go off to Vermont in an RV to a campground where they will spend the summer.
Paige is pissed off to say the least because she does not want to spend the summer camping or at some campground where she knows no one. What is even worse is when she gets there to the campground and she finds teens her own age there she is treated like an outcast and even worse sometimes. Then she meets Travis the campground owner's son and she is smitten right away. He is gorgeous and takes her breath away. To her surprise Travis is the only one who talks to her and wants to spend time with her. As they get to know each other Travis tells her he wants to have a relationship with her and keep it on the down low. Okay you seeing the red flags here with that statement? Paige agrees and they have a secret relationship on the side when no one is looking. But when Travis is with his friends he treats her like crap and ignores her.
So here is where I am going to go into my rant and a rant it is because I have a daughter and I told her when she starts dating if the guy wants to hide the relationship say HELL NO because something is just not right. So Travis is all lovey dovey with Paige in private but when he is around her friends he acts like a douche bag. And HELLO Paige but get some self esteem because she stays with him and forgives him for being a tool towards her and I am reading and screaming at the book because I dare a guy to treat me that way and I say sure honey it is okay. Hell to the fu&^%$# NO! I would open a can of WHIP A$ and he would know not to mess with me but no Paige just accepts it and then she finds out he has a girlfriend and she was just the side chick. WTF?????????? Enough with the ranting because I know you know where I am going with this but dam Travis made Christian Grey look like a saint! Get the point.... good :)
By no surprise my favorite hobbies are reading and writing. But beyond escaping into the written fantasy world, I love experiencing new things. Surfing, motorcycle riding, snow blading, glass blowing, parasailing, SUP boarding are just a few that I have checked off my bucket list, but there is still so much more to explore. Right now, being a mom is my biggest adventure and the best by far!! In the quiet calm hours of the night though, I can usually be found typing away creating a world of romance where drama still exists but love (hopefully!!) always prevails.
