Summary: Maddy's Boy Pros & Cons ...
Brian—Super cute / hangs with my friends / goes to my high school / my boyfriend!
David—Says I'm a spoiled princess / hates my friends / has amazing blue eyes / cooked me an unbelievable dinner / annoyingly irresistible!
Summer for Maddy Sinclaire starts as a blur of house parties and dips in the pool—until she's caught throwing an unauthorized beachside bash. As punishment, her parents send her off to Napa Valley, where she'll spend her free time working on the family vineyard. Even with her boyfriend, Brian, miles away, Maddy's about to discover that the vineyard is a very romantic place. It's vast, sunny, magical ...and there's another boy just waiting to steal her heart.
Review: If you don't already know books like The Other Boy aren't my usual reads. But when I discovered this one Goodreads one day, I knew that this would be the perfect summer read. And boy was I right!
The Other Boy starts off with a bang and held my attention till the very last page. It was fun being able to escape in a book you wouldn't normally read. And I had a wonderful time being in the character's world and heads.
Other than being a light, fluffy sort of cliched book, The Other Boy was extremely enjoyable. I had no clue how much I would love it. It was really, really good.
Maddy is a little spoiled as it says in the summary. But thankfully she does change and it was so great to watch her change! She was a really great character after that. David was a total sweetie! And so, so funny! It was great to read the banter between the two, and watch all the fun situations they got each other in! Those were by favorite parts, hands down.
The Other Boy was a great change in books for me and I loved it! If you're looking for a great summer read, this is definitely the books for you!
