With a former supermodel mother and a rock-and-roll legend father, Emma Preston has the best of everything. Nothing is as perfect as it seems though. After her parents divorce, she’s forced to live with her mother in a private Santa Monica community. Ignoring their parental roles, her mother becomes more focused on climbing the social ladder while her father is off on tour.
Growing up in a trailer park with his mother, Jesse is used to people looking down on him. When his mother begs him to submit an application for a scholarship to one of Santa Monica’s top private schools, he never expects to actually get it. When he does, he is forced to attend school with a bunch of rich kids. He ignores their stares as they judge him for having tattoos and a less than impressive car. As long as he has his surfboard and the guys at the tattoo shop, he knows he can make it through.
When Jesse shows up on the first day of school, Emma can’t help but be intrigued. Her mother would never approve of Emma talking to someone so poor, but she doesn’t care because something about Jesse draws her to him.
Jesse tries to hate Emma, but he discovers that he can’t resist her. Forced to hide their relationship from Emma’s mother and everyone else around them, things start to fall apart. When Jesse’s friend, Ally, decides to interfere, things go from bad to worse.
Can they survive their first love? Or will they be left with nothing more than shattered ties?

Jesse and Emma meet at the private High School that Emma has attended – for two years already – on the first day of the school year. They are both 17. I tend to stay away from books that take place in High School [because they make me feel like a creeper] but I like K.A. Robinson so I went for it.
So worth it!
Emma isn’t pretentious and shallow like other people at the school and she makes it a point to be Jesse’s friend.
Of course all the girls in the school want the ‘bad boy.’ [I am pretty sure that happens everywhere.]
This book is a good example of why you shouldn’t judge people by their looks.
I am first in line for book two!
