Port Fare, New York, has fallen into the clutches of true evil. The Dreser brothers have arrived with a scheme to increase drug sales in the area by whatever means possible. Seth Prescott is part of MET (Mobile Enforcement Teams) a branch of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). He’s been assigned to work undercover at Port Fare High, and things aren’t going very well, until senior Maggie Brown enters the equation. He’s harbored a secret crush on her from day one, and now that she is in the center of the case, he’s trying to stay clear and objective while walking the line between business and unrequited love.

Maggie is truly the poster child for Heroin Chic, complete with jutting bones and dark-ringed eyes, but is she an addict, or is there another reason for her appearance? She struggles with her feelings for Seth, fearing he is just another person who will eventually let her down, as everyone in her life has done thus far.

Maggie has spent her life caring for her alcoholic mother. A task that has left her heavily burdened and alone. Before long, her mother’s health takes a turn for the worst, sending Maggie’s life into a tale-spin.

While Seth works relentlessly to inject fear into the dealers and flush them out into the open, Maggie fights to stay alive as the hunt turns deadly.

Seth and Maggie’s romantic journey is one of humor, heartbreak, and self-discovery.

My Rating: 4 stars

My Thoughts:

What a great story!! From the first page to the last, this book was romance and action packed! It had a great plot and lots of amazing characters!

Seth is an undercover cop at Maggie’s high school and has had a crush on her right from the start. Maggie lives in an abusive home, where she hardly eats a meal a day, causing her to have all the appearances of a druggie. Things start to get complicated when Seth gets assigned to get close to Maggie to find out if her mother is involved with big time drug dealers.

While reading this book, my heart just broke for Maggie! Her life at home was just so pitiful and sad. She always took care of her pathetic mother and never asked for anything but her love in return but still her mother told her, countless times, that she was an “unlovable nothing.” Then the oh-so-wonderful Seth comes into Maggie’s life and shows her that she is perfectly lovable just the way she is! The romance between the two of them is fast paced and beautiful. Seth is so caring, loving, protective, and all around perfect!

I also loved Booker and Cole! Booker was so fun-loving, caring, and protective of both Seth and Maggie. He also brought quite a lot of humor to this book, which I loved. If Booker was the cool, BA older brother, then Cole was the fun nerdy one! His character was just sweet and dorky and fun!

Another little thing about this book is it was “clean.” There was no swearing and although the romance was part of the main plot it also was very clean. There were a few violent scenes that were a little graphic but other than that, this book is definitely a great read for any young adult!

If you like lots of action, suspense, and romance, with a hint of mystery, then this book is for you!
