Publisher's Summary

MACKENNA - I have everything I need to live out my dream of being a reclusive songwriter - my guitar, my notebook, and blissful silence. 

At least, I did until Jimmy moved in next door.  

He's got bad news written all over him. And last time I got with a bad boy, it ended with me pointing a gun and pulling the trigger.  

Talk about going out with a bang.  

Jimmy makes me want things I shouldn't want, which means I have two options: avoid him or piss him off. But no matter what I do he isn't fazed, and I'm quickly realizing there's more to Jimmy than I originally thought. 

JIMMY - Over the past year, I've been called a lot of things. Slacker. Troublemaker. Party animal.  

I thought I was on top of the world. Turns out, I was pretty close to rock bottom.  

Now I have a new title: college dropout.  

But I've got a chance to redeem myself - one summer of squeaky-clean behavior at Grandma Beverly's. Two months to prove I'm not a complete f--k-up.  

And four rules to follow with the gorgeous girl next door. Rules aren't exactly my forte, but I only plan on breaking one of them.  

I want to get back to being one of the good guys.  

Contains mature themes.

Great story, great McKenna, terrible Male lead

I love Jimmy and McKenna. Love their story. They’re people I just want to wrap in big old hugs and bake them cookies… if I could bake.

Ms. Schlosser’s writing flows well. Her characters are full of life and engaging.

Now the narration. The voice of McKenna worked for me. She was believable and also pulled off all the other voices.

Jimmy’s voice was good as Jimmy… but awful for pretty much everyone else. (He managed to make Travis sound downright elderly… he’s supposed to be in his early 20’s) his McKenna voice was cringey. He’d be better off focusing on inflection rather than timber and trying to sound various shades of masculine and feminine.

ROUGH BEGINNING BUT A SLOW TURN TO LOVE

There’s some domestic abuse/violence at the beginning, but the heroine takes care of it. The rest is light and sweet. The coming together of two people that may seem unlikely to fall in love, but they do. And they get their HEA!
