Read in: November, 2013
Format: eBook
Source: Author
Star Rating: 3 

Synopsis: (from 
Adriana Banovic’s 15th birthday sucked! She got fired after eight years of playing Shayanne Montgomery on the #1 soap in the country, found out that her family was on the verge of bankruptcy and worst of all, forced to return to Westwood Academy. Her only saving grace was a chance glance at dreamy mystery boy Haze Lyndon. Armed with only his picture and a determination to find him—even if it means turning Los Angeles over on its ass.

In this young adult novel, you’ll meet Robin Banovic, Adriana’s father; financially challenged, dealing with the death of a family member and his brother’s disappearance. You’ll meet Savannah DaCosta aka Savi, mother/manager; Savi enjoys the life her rock star daughter Leighann has provided. When Leighann makes a choice to end her career, Savi sees it as a personal attack. You’ll meet college boy Haze Lyndon; New to Los Angeles, Haze soon realizes how quickly money changes hands in the City of Angels. Will he return to questionable ways to survive or go back to the safety of his family in Wisconsin?

Honestly, I wish each of the stories had been broken up into a book each, with a little bit of a new tidbit about each story instead of having all the stories together and jumbled together. It was a little confusing having to keep track of each different character and past and how they each relate to one another. 

While each story was a little different each, I love love love the characters. Each one has its own secrets and different personalities and downfalls. 

It was ok. I will most definitely be reading the second book, just because I HAVE to know what happens. I hope for more character interaction and development.
