Publisher's Summary

Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades - the perfect daughter. And then… Surprise number one: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident. Surprise number two: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters - her new guardians. Surprise number three: The Walters have 12 sons. (Well, 11, but Parker acts like a boy anyway.) Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy -loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring - no matter what they say - but proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?

Not for adults

I waited for awhile to get this book since it was not an audiobook. The moment it was released I snatched it up. I love these types of story lines and this is the type of book I was in the mood for but it just did not do the trick.
If the author would take out the cussing then this book would be for children.
There is not really an ending. She just goes back to New York. Nothing really gets resolved. Where is my HEA? Where was the romance? The only thing that saves this book from being 1 star is the practical jokes the kids played on each other. I would skip this book in less you are a young teenager.

- R. Smith "For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week."

Lots of ups and downs.

The story idea itself was not bad but drug along. Lots of emotional ups and downs that helped make the characters feel more real. I couldn't help but feel irritated with the main character at times, especially when dealing the boys interest's. The biggest disappointment was the ending though. Hate reading books with no closure and boy did this story leave you hanging.
