This is a decent start to a new series. It is a down-to-earth turned in-the-spotlight type of story that every girl dreams of. There were a few times when I would roll my eyes a bit and think "get over it", but then remembered how old the characters were. I think this is a great teenager story. Needless to say...I wouldn't turn down book #2.

This is a sweet story about young love between a small town girl and a celebrity, mistakenly bad-boy, Olympic swimmer. It has all the angst, challenges and sweetness of new found love. The protagonists are unsure as they traverse the complexities of instant attraction. Added to that, Rosalia has her super protective Sicilian family and Jay has his celebrity status (and all the drama, including a possessive ex-girlfriend, that involves) to contend with. Both provide plenty of obstacles but love rises to the occasion.
I enjoyed the humour, the drama and the emotional angst involved in this story. I loved how natural and relatable Rosalia is. And I especially liked how Rosalia's normal life coupled with her quirky personality and realistic insecurities are exactly what Jay appreciates about her.
