Some boys break your heart. Others teach you how to heal it.

Chloe Stone’s life is a hot mess. Determined to stop being so freaking skittish, she packs up her quasi-famous best friend and heads to Florida. The goal? Complete the summer bucket list to end all bucket lists. The problem? Her hot soon-to-be stepbrother, Landon Jacobs. 

Landon’s mom will throttle him if he even looks at his future stepsister the wrong way. Problem is, Chloe is everything he didn’t know he wanted, and that’s...inconvenient. Watching her tear it up on a karaoke stage, stand up to his asshole friend, and rock her first string bikini destroys his sanity. 

But there’s more than their future family on the line. Landon is hiding something—something he knows will change how she feels about him—and she’s hiding something from him, too. And when the secrets come out, there’s a good chance neither will look at the other the same way again..

My Thoughts:
This book took me a hot minute to actually get into, but when I did, it was soooo good. I love characters that are flawed, perfect characters just aren't that fun for anyone, right? Chloe was such an inspiring character and at the same time I kinda wanted to smack her and wake her up. She was basically traumatized from what happened to her with an ex-bf. So, when she arrives in Florida she is not looking love or anything else for that matter, which makes this book even more perfect.
Landon is a character that you really can't help but to love, he has a disability that he is very insecure about and he pretty much let's it run his life when it comes to what he should do about his future. I loved these two together, they were so cute and adorable. The perfect lazy day beach read.
