Rating: 4/5 stars
Summary: Caymen’s a girl just trying to live her life as the daughter of a poor, doll store owner. Porcelain dolls, just in case you wondering. Life is actually pretty fine being poor, and if her mother’s warnings are any clue, the rich are too shallow anyhow. But when she meets the impossibly rich, Xander, Caymen can’t help but wonder if those warnings could be completely trusted.
My Thoughts: First off, the sarcasm in this book was a beautiful thing to behold. But beyond that, this book was pretty hard to rate. I’m still torn between 3 and 4 stars. It’s just…it felt like this book didn’t know what it was supposed to be, if that makes sense? There’s the romance, obviously, with a couple of those “misunderstanding” tropes, which is fine in and of itself, but they happened so quickly, so I didn’t really know what to think about them. Then, there’s the whole “finding yourself” plot line, which I somewhat liked, but again, it mostly fell by the wayside. A lot of the book’s plot lines felt like that.
I guess… I liked a lot of this book, but it just wasn’t as satisfying as I would’ve hoped.
Still, if you like Kasie West’s other books, you’ll probably enjoy this one.
