When Sierra gets paired with Levi’s sister, Brea, for a mentorship program, they strike a deal. In exchange for Sierra keeping her mouth shut about Brea ditching the program, Brea lets Sierra dig for more info on Levi to help get the guy of her dreams. But when Sierra discovers Levi no longer plays the drums, his family has moved into a trailer, and he’s traded in his Range Rover for a baby blue moped, Sierra’s not sure if she can go through with violating his privacy. She’ll have to find the courage to ask him straight out—if he’s willing to let her in—and explore other ways to seduce the school’s band geek.

My Rating: 4 stars
I was highly skeptical going into this book. The title was a little raunchy, I wasn't the biggest fan of book 1, and it started off pretty rough for me. I thought that at the beginning of the book Sierra was super slutty and I wasn't even sure if I was going to be able to finish it. Then it started picking up, Sierra pulled herself together, and we got to know Levi. Oh how I love Levi.
I thought that Cassie Mae did an amazing job writing all of her characters. I loved all of them, and I'm so, so excited for book 3 with Adam and Brea. I think that Levi had to have been my favorite, I especially loved that he gave off such a positive message for not just Sierra, but anyone reading it. I thought the fact that he was a virgin was great, because I feel too often in YA, the male leads get portrayed as man whores, or reformed man whores, when the reality is, those kinds of guys aren't the majority.
Cassie did a fantastic job portraying realistic high school situations. The party that Sydney dragged Sierra to, that stuff really happens and I feel that a lot of times that kind of stuff just gets skimmed over because the readers are too young or too immature to be reading about things like that, when they're going through that kind of stuff, and need to be able to read about it to get guidance because there isn't anyone that they're comfortable turning to.
I thing that the main thing I really loved about this book, and about Cassie Mae in general, is that her writing and her stories are so fresh and different, and I know that reading the summary of this, it sounds like any other mainstream contemporary, but it's so much more than that. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA but particularly to those in high school or going into high school.
Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. Her angel children and perfect husband fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.
