Summary (from Goodreads):

Honest and full of heart, this clever contemporary romance debut deftly combines utterly relatable family drama with all the sweetness and uncertainy that comes with falling in love.

Rule #1: Don't get attached.

Amber lives by strict rules to survive her mother’s love life: Always keep your eyes on the horizon and never get close to anyone connected to Mom's boyfriends.

But after they move in with Kevin, the latest of her mom's “soul mates,” the rules become increasingly difficult to follow. Kevin’s daughter, Cammie, keeps acting like Amber’s friend, even though she’s definitely not. And Jordan—star basketball player, hottest boy in school, and Cammie's best friend—keeps showing up at the most inconvenient moments.

Amber has reasons for every one of her rules, and following them is the only way to protect her heart when her mom inevitably moves on. But as she spends more time with Kevin, his daughter, and especially Jordan, she starts to wonder if the rules might be worth breaking this time.

I am interested in finding out how the family dynamic plays out in this story. It definitely seems to be set up for lots of drama. The contemporary fan in me is excited to find out more!

    Its getting closer and I keep seeing this book pop up and the more I do, the more I want to read it. These are the days I miss my blog, and the ARC game. But the ARC game and the blog game, it is too much for me now. I can’t take time anymore. But STILL!
