Thoughts: I enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to reading the others in the series. I liked how well the story it written so you can see a young girl blossom into a heart breaker. I did have some problems with it, my first issue was the fact that you don't really know much about her parents like their occupation or how they drown. I also found it a bit annoying that in certain parts of the story it would take forever for characters to say what needed to be said, but even with that I still found the book enjoyable. I would recommend this for lovers of romance/erotica novels.
