2.5 stars max. The whole high school drama bullshit was over the top silly, the hero was an ass until close to the end, and the dialogue often read like they were snotty 12 year olds not full grown adults. Overall, the story was too much of a stretch in so many places. I did like the secondary romance, what little there was. I thought the sex scenes were well done, it is something this author excels at writing. I should have passed on reading this one, but I've enjoyed so many other books by this author.
