Hi guys, I'm back with another review! This time, it's another book by Kasie West again. Funny story here, I actually read On the Fence BEFORE this book, and I was so overwhelmed when I saw some of the characters such as Skye in this book! I went to check out the publication date and realized that this book was before On the Fence, which means I should have read this before the other book, On the Fence. I thought they were stand alones so I just randomly took one of the book! Oh gosh! XD
So, I gave this book 3.5/5 stars
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.
So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.
She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

I really enjoyed Kasie West's writing, all the couples that she has created so far are so cute and they just grows on me as time goes by! I enjoyed myself reading this book, but it has the same issue as On the Fence which I read earlier! Check out my review of On the Fence Review if you haven't yet!
What I liked about this book:
I do like the main characters a lot, I enjoyed their romance and they were just so adorable! This book is a page turner, kept me wanting to read more and I couldn't stop reading it! The first page already got me wanting more, I really liked how Caymen, our main character, was just so sassy and sarcastic, she was just so cool! I also liked how the author introduced Xander into this book, and showed the readers how rich people are not always the same, they can also be kind and how we really need to know them before making a judgement. So amazing!
What I didn't like about this book:
So for me, I find the ending to be a little abrupt and was quite rushed, it also left a lot of questions that were not answered even until the last page. Compared to On the Fence, I didn't like this book that much, I didn't like how the author suddenly introduced so many characters at the ending and didn't even give these characters a chance for any character development, and even took away some of the characters so suddenly, like they were just cut off from the life of Caymen's and from the book without any proper explanation, especially Mason! I didn't like the feeling I felt when I finished the book, it made me feel weird and empty and I was just at a lost for words. I just wanted a book with more development of the story and I wanted to know more of the characters, I wanted to see how they were developed, especially those which were suddenly added into the plot at the end of the story. Not a book that just ends there so weirdly, it just didn't felt right...
I would have given this book a higher rating if not for the ending! Although the book was a fun read and seriously got me wanting to read more, flipping pages after pages, trying to find out more about the whole plot, wanting to read more of Xander and Caymen, that's how good it is!
If you guys like Romance, Contemporary and Chick Lit, I'm pretty sure you will enjoy this book, so why not pick it up? It is definitely worth the read!
All right, that is all for this post! I hope you guys enjoyed this review, and hopefully pick this book up to read! I will post soon, so until then, happy reading! MUACKS! XD
