Ashley Jardine can’t afford to refuse. He scored almost a full ride to MIT. But that almost still costs a lot. And this is so much money for a little game of revenge and a chance—albeit short—to live the high life. Here, rich girls rule the shore, and everyone has a role to play. Only nothing in the job description warned Ashley that the redhead who’s running the scheme would be so crazy. And cute. Or that he wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about her.
Now, everything is going according to plan—until an unexpected attraction raises the stakes. It’s enough to turn the perfect payback into absolute heartbreak.
Having found love and wanting out of Fling Club, a members only girls rule the Hamptons and boys are secondary to the members highly guarded rules, Cheryl ‘Cherry’ Kennedy had hopes of quitting the summer flings. But when she finds her boyfriend. Griffin, in bed with the Fling Club leader, Cait; Cherry now has one thing on her mind: Revenge. With the help of her sister and brother, Cherry begins to plan the perfect plan to bring down Cait, but they need bait and in walks MIT student, Ashley Jardine. He dislikes the rich and all they do and stand for, but the attraction to him and he to Cherry is instantaneous. Will the two be able to resist and keep to their parts of the plan, even when their HEA could be at stake?
Overall, I loved it, probably because I’ve grown up with this kind of a romance novel and enjoy when the pauper gets to stick it a bit to the princess. Luckily the princess in this story is just a rich socialite in America and realizes her place in the world isn’t set in stone, she can change her status and future especially with some help from a sexy nerd. I gotta say I think Ashley is one if not the sexiest nerds I’ve ever read about, and he’s sure not shy when it comes to some romance. Got to remind myself to get post-its and get to MIT stat! Anyways, I’m excited to see what more could happen in this series and hopefully some more scenes involving Ashley and Cherry.
