My Life with the Walter Boys by Ali Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My Life with the Walter Boys centers on the prim, proper, and always perfect Jackie Howard. When her world is turned upside down by tragedy, Jackie must learn to cut loose and be part of a family again.
Jackie does not like surprises. Chaos is the enemy! The best way to get her successful, busy parents to notice her is to be perfect. The perfect look, the perfect grades-the perfect daughter. And then...
Surprise #1: Jackie's family dies in a freak car accident.
Surprise #2: Jackie has to move cross-country to live with the Walters-her new guardians.
Surprise #3: The Walters have twelve sons. (Well, eleven, but Parker acts like a boy anyway)
Now Jackie must trade in her Type A personality and New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all the wild Walter boys who come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy-loud, dirty, annoying boys who have no concept of personal space. Okay, several of the oldest guys are flat-out gorgeous. But still annoying. She's not stuck-up or boring-no matter what they say. But proving it is another matter. How can she fit in and move on when she needs to keep her parents' memory alive by living up to the promise of perfect?
What I think:
After finishing this book I started scrolling through some of the reviews. What I have learned is this: don't judge a book by its review. It's not because some other people hated it that you won't enjoy it. I get into this book without knowing much and not even being that much of a contemporary romance reader. I loved this book and I can't wait for the second one to come out, because it simply can't just end.
I believe this book got back my love for contemporay romance which I lost around the age of 15.
I'm not going to say too much about this book. It's a cliché kind of romance and yes, it has a love triangle, but it's a cute light book to read. You don't need to think much when reading this book, it easily pulls you in and steals your heart.
Sorry for all of those who don't like predictable, fluffy teenage romance, but this book is just too cute.
