The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?
A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.
It's just whether you're going to do a decent thing or keep doing shitty things.
So choose. Just stop whinning about it.

Don't you think that man's posture on the cover looks like Liam Hemsworth?
The story is actualy pretty decent. I waited for big climax which never came. Maybe Sam's POV didn't work for me. She's so calm and her voice didn't give me the feels of whatever happened.
I admit it, Sam and Jase's relationship made me jealous. They have a cute, adorable, generous, fantastic relationship. They are so compatible, but I felt they had no fierce problem to make story more interesting. I don't know maybe Sam's Pov that hadn't had much emotions.
My favorite is The Garret family! I was actually minded with Sam's mom's opinion to Garret family. What's the problem being a big family? I have 3 sisters and 1 brother, and I'm happy with it. Home is seriously a mess, but living in a big family has been so much fun! You have partners to play wii all night XD
I didn't like political issue here too. Overall, I hate Sam's mom for mostly everything.
The are some sex discussions and actual sex scene (but not graphic).
