The debutante path is a fairly straight track: who you are, who you associate with, and whose label you are wearing become priorities. They define you. They are the aspects by which you are judged.

Ashlyn’s world has been one of enlightenment and finesse, and now she is ready to take on the financial world at her father’s company just as he had always planned. Her future had been scripted long ago, but a chance meeting with a beautiful boy on a bicycle gives Ashlyn a new outlook on life.

Ethan is far too young, far too tattooed, far too pierced—just far too everything—to ever fit into her world. He has issues, too—major ones. Ashlyn knows he will never be accepted by her friends, let alone her overbearing father, but there is something about his live-in-the-moment outlook that keeps drawing her back into his arms.

Ashlyn must make a choice. Can she forgo the family dynasty and live life to the fullest with this fascinating but damaged young man?

Jenny’s Review

This story is about Two opposites pulled together through instant attraction and an intense case of chemistry. Ashlyn is 7 years older than 19 year old Ethan. Ashlyn comes from and runs with an uppity group of millionaires. Appearance is everything to her and her family and friends. So when she is falling for a guy with tattoos, piercings, long hair, and younger than her, she knows it can’t go anywhere. He will never be accepted into her circle of people. Even with him being a billionaire.



Carpe Diem.
Why not, so Ashlyn goes for it. She falls for the one boy she can’t have. That is until her friends see her with him and Ethan sees her reaction of embarrassment and shame. He walks away hurt, crushed by the one person he gave his heart to.
This story is a story of judging, its a story of longing, it reminds us to make the most of what we are given, take the chance, and live for you and not for others, as today could be your last.

Definitely a good read. Not a favorite, but I did enjoy it overall.
