Synopsis:
Audrey's life has been planned out for her since she was born, and now she's supposed to attend Whedon College in the fall, where both of her parents work. But Audrey has a different plan in mind: She's not going to attend college at all. She's going to earn some money and move to Seattle, the city she's loved since she was a child. And the best way to earn that money is by working the night shift at the local nursing home.

Seth O'Malley works there, too, and a romance quickly blossoms between them. But things get complicated when Audrey saves the life of Cameron Suzuki, Seth's ex. A video of her performing CPR at the beach goes viral, and suddenly, Audrey's wanted for TV interviews and newspaper articles. And just when Audrey starts to love life at the nursing hom--and life with Seth--Seattle comes knocking. Does she follow the path she set out for herself, even when it means leaving behind Seth and the cast of quirky patients she's come to care for? Or does she embrace a future with Seth--at least for the foreseeable future--at the cost of abandoning her dreams?
Rating: 3.5/5

My Review:

I did enjoy this book, I found the plot very interesting. I liked the main character for the most part, but her impulsivity gave me whiplash. One moment she'd be set on one thing and then just change her mind the next. But I understood her decisions, so that's why I ultimately didn't mind. I've never read a book where someone goes viral before, so that was interesting. Also liked that she worked in a nursing home, and the friendship she made with one of her patients.

As for the romance in the book, I did really like their relationship but I didn't love that she was contemplating giving up her future for him. I'm not going to reveal the outcome of it, you'll just have to read the book. But if you have read it, and given my stance on it then you should have an understanding about how I felt with the ending. Was that vague enough for ya? *insert winky face here*

I also liked the family dynamic/drama throughout the book. It's a very real situation, and I thought it was handled really well. I really enjoyed Emily Adrian's writing style, it was very easy reading and she made everything flow really well. I thought it was a great book to read for this time of the year, a good summer read for sure. Also I love the cover of this book!! I never mention that in my reviews and I feel like I should when covers are beautiful like this one!
