Jamie Grey grew up tossed around between foster homes. At an early age he shut the world out, deciding he wouldn’t care. Whatever life had to throw at him, he would look the other way. Now his senior year is about to start and he’s been forced into yet another new home. This will be the last time, he assures himself. When an unexpected curveball comes his way in the form of a certain stubborn seventeen year old girl, Jamie soon finds out that life doesn’t always work out the way you plan it.
Beckett Chase has been entitled her entire life. Living in the plush landscape of Palm Beach, Florida, she’s never wanted for anything. She’s always taken what and who she wants with no remorse. When she sets her sights on Jamie Grey and she’s met with rejection, her descent from the top begins.
With a twist of events causing Jamie and Beckett’s worlds to collide, will they be able to put aside their differences or will fate intervene offering an entirely different option?

I viewed Jaime as my little brother throughout this book. I was drawn in to him from the beginning and want to know the reason of how he became a foster child. He was a protector and believed in things beyond the realm in which we live in. He was driven to not be a victim of the "system" and had a dream of being part of a "family".
Breckett was a lost sole that was found and thank god she was. I understood her POV even though I did not agree with ALL of her ideas. I was excited about her accomplishment in the end to "end the game".
This was a wonderful story that touched on many issues from high school life from bullying to peer pressure. I give this book 4.5 hearts and wish to see a four years later novella.
