My life has always been safe. I like it that way. I grew up in a fake society where plastic hearts rule. If our hearts are made of plastic, they can never be broken. My parents have expectations and I do everything I can to meet them, even if it means giving up on my own dreams. Now, all I want is to be free to make my own choices.
Dane Wright is everything I have been warned to stay away from. We met one night while I was with my perfect, parent-approved boyfriend and I haven’t stopped thinking about him. I don’t want to like him. I am doing everything I can to ignore his pull, but my heart seems to want what it cannot have, what it has never had.
Can he measure up? He may think I am too good for him, but maybe he is too good for me. Life is a series of choices and I have never been able to make my own. Until one day, when my heart decides to make a choice for me.

This was not bad, just okay for me.
Yes, I would try another book by Lisa De Jong. The writing was not bad at all. The flow of the story was very good. I really loved Dane and sometimes wondered why he loved Alex so much. I just feel like Alexandra grew up in the VERY rich lifestyle and not sure she will be able to ever live without it. She says she will, but not sure I believe it. When Alex and Dane went out, it sounded like Dane paid for everything even though he was the one putting himself through school and working. Alex never worked a day in her life. She never even thought of getting a job during winter or spring break. I hate to say this but at times while I was reading this I was thinking Alex was whining about "rich girl problems". There are many people out there who have no family support financially or emotionally.
The narrator did a decent job. I think some of the male voices needed some work. At times, when she did Dane's voice she sounded like Millhouse from The Simpsons. She did the female voices very well.
