Emma Harris is learning that life is just a series of lessons.

Lesson #1: Nothing goes the way you plan. Lesson #2: You can’t trust men. Especially not the pretty ones. Lesson #3: Turns out, appearances are almost always deceiving.

Emma thinks she has life all figured out, and what she knows isn't good. For years, she’s put her big sister, who was born with Down syndrome, first. Now Emma’s ready to start her own life, but fate has other plans. To do the right thing for the sister she loves, Emma’s dreams will just have to wait.

She doesn't plan on meeting Landon — a rich, flirtatious jock, who never has to wait for anything. Not for attention, not for money, and certainly not for girls. Meeting Emma marks the first time in his life that he’s had to fight for something. And Landon doesn't know how to lose.

Emma has no interest in wasting her summer with a superficial guy like Landon. But very soon she realizes she is wrong about him. The question is, can she trust him? Or will he let her down like every other guy in her life? But most importantly, can Emma trust herself enough to live the life she's always dreamed of?

Life has a way of sneaking in the most important lessons when you aren't looking. And once the heart gets involved, that's when the real learning begins.

3 stars out of 5 stars

         I was hoping to be able to give this book this book a higher rating but alas there was no real connection with the characters for me. The beginning seemed very rushed, Emma is supposed to be the Midwest biggest bi*$# and it didn't take long for her and Landon to get together. I understand Landon is very hot and sweet and I see how Emma tries to rationalize it but it doesn't come off as genuine. It is a bad case of instalove and although I can get through that sometimes, this wasn't one of those cases.

Although this story wasn't my cup of tea it had a lot of good elements which is the reason I gave it a 3. I really liked Landon's character although he seemed perfect, he had his flaws. I liked how the author incorporated families that had loved ones with disabilities; she did a great job with this aspect of the novel. The story was okay and had a lot of good elements but I just didn't connect with the characters.
