Inspire 18 year old Paige Rice an exuisite beauty from East Hampton NY has just celebrated her high school graduation and is expecting to spend her summer living it up with all her socialite friends But her parents have a different idea – she is being hauled away literally to the mountains of Vermont fo Actual Rating 25This book had a ton of potential The actual writing is good from a technical perspective and the flow is pretty steady without many bumps What failed for me are the story arcs and some pretty hefty character flaws which I will break downThe synopsis for this book is pretty spot on so I won't waste any time recapping and instead get right to the meat of the story Paige is the protag for this book and when we meet her she's just graduated from high school and against her will is heading off into the wild blue yonder of Vermont with her parents whose marriage seems to be on the verge of failing The reader is offered this information almost as an afterthought and the particular story arc is never fully fleshed out though it should have been because it would have added a layer of depth that was altogether missing from this storyUpon arrival to their campsite Paige encounters Travis the owner's son and soon becomes smitten And this my friends is where things get wonky You see Travis feels the same way Cool huh? Hot guy lots of empty woods to explore a gorgeous lake hmmm sexy set up here Only Travis wants to keep their budding relationship on the DL from his tight group of friends who also summer at this campsite So what that immediately says to me is A he's either ashamed of you Paige; or B he's got a girlfriend you dumbass Huge red flag Only after just a smidge of suspicion Paige goes along with the clandestine relationship and the two begin to fall in love way too uickly BTW In addition to the secret relationship aspect of things Travis allows his friends the nasty girls of course to belittle and torment Paige without defending her There's always some BS excuse as to why he can't get involved Yet he has no trouble cornering her in a laundry room to kiss her senselessThere are signs aplenty popping up all over the place Things that come up which would have sent me running For instance there's a scene at the lake fairly early on Paige is there on the beach relaxing when the Travis and his friends show up He doesn't acknowledge her presence won't even make eye contact and again after a brief hint of irritation on Paige's part he sweet talks his way back into her good graces Huh? This is where I lose all respect for our protagThe supposed mystery only deepens over time as Paige is slowly ingratiated into the group All the clues are there vital pieces of information are revealed and yet Paige our resident idiot doesn't have the intellect to ask the burning uestions It's at this point I totally check out I mean this chick got into Columbia University which denotes a certain level of intellect on her part yet her deductive reasoning skills suck ass Travis is lying you dipshit and even I knew that at about the 20% markEventually the truth comes out in dramatic fashionview spoileryes in fact Travis has a girlfriend who conveniently shows up in the eleventh hour and sends everything into a tailspin Okay so maybe he's wanted to breakup with her for a year and there are reasons he felt he couldn't but come on hide spoiler
