Publisher's Description

"Romeo + Juliet gets an update in this story of forbidden love. Shakespeare's never been so hip." -- Jenny B. Jones, author of The Charmed Life Series

As the popular darling of the junior class and heiress to the five-star Monrovi Inn empire, Kate has both everything and nothing. She's bored with school and life...until she locks eyes with Caleb at a school dance.

Caleb is new to Kate's exclusive prep school, and it's clear he doesn't fit in. In fact, he and his dad work in maintenance for Kate's father. And while Caleb knows better than to spend time with the boss's daughter, it seems that every time he tries to back away, something pulls him right back in.

When their parents demand that they are to stay away from each other, they learn of a fight between their families that occurred more than fifty years ago. It's a mystery Kate doesn't understand...but a legacy Caleb has endured his entire life.

With the world stacked against them, Caleb and Kate will have to walk by faith to find the path that God has planned for them.

    This book may have a plot that is interesting. But I am not sure the author pick the quotes that are acurate or helpful to readers that are at their teens.

    Confuses the 'true love' of God with romantic love

    I'm a librarian who bought this book for our church library. Unfortunately, this book was brought to my attention by a teenage girl in our church who suggested that it should NOT be in our church library. I decided to read it for myself. It's a book about a girl, Kate, who's experience with love has left a sour taste. After meeting Caleb, she becomes consumed with overwhelming love for him. The author tries to compare this love with the 'true love' of God. This is very dangerous ground for young teens seeking loving relationships. This book does not encourage teens to look to Christ for fulfillment, but rather towards a romantic love. This one paragraph was particularly disturbing. "The se* issue continues to not be an issue. Caleb has this standard, wanting us to have se* when it's perfect. I think he means when we're married, but I can't even conceive of waiting that long. I'm trying not to think about it, though it's always there. One day I might just seduce him; I can tell he's struggling even more that I am."

    It's very easy for teens to read this book and believe that love can overcome anything, even a lapse in morality.

    As an older teen girl, I'm always looking for good books that aren't your cliche "boy meets girl, fall in love, kiss at the end" story plots. But often the "real" books don't portray love from a Christian perspective. I really liked this book and how it showed that Caleb and Kate's love was like God's, unconditional. It didn't have any scenes I had to skim over to protect my mind, in fact, it held me captivated. It is beautifully written and I highly suggest it.

    This is the best YA romance I've ever read. Seriously. My heart was actually pounding for the last half of the book. Yes, it really was. I adored Caleb. He was a great guy, and I loved that he was not what everyone assumed when they first met him. The same with Kate. She wasn't a rich snob like he'd expected. I was thrilled that he couldn't hate her even though he had tried. They were so different.He didn't want to love her because life would be easier not to love her, but that's the cool thing about true love. It comes unexpectedly. When it hits you right in the heart, it leaves you stunned at first, but then craving more. Kind of like a wild carnival ride. Scary and exciting at the same time. I loved how the author perfectly captured the thrill of the ride in this story without being sappy or cliche.The YA romance "voice" of this story was perfect, too. So was the male point of view. I loved that he didn't see her and think, "gee, she looks like she might have a wonderful personality. I'd like to get to know her." It was realistic. He thought, "Whoa. She's beautiful." And he kept feeling very drawn to her despite his attempts to feel otherwise. He also have very male teen hormonal thoughts, which rang true. Passion under control is SO heroic. Ahhh...love that kind of story where you fight true love and you lose.There is something wonderfully elating about being pulled into a story and having it win over your heart. That is what this story did for me. I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to call someone to talk about how much I loved it as soon as I closed the book. It was such a beautiful story and slightly sensual but nothing over the top. These are high school teens here! Anything less than that would seem fake. I loved that they both fought desire. That made the story even better. And the fact that there was a faith element gently woven into the plot made it all the more endearing to me.
