I had heard SO much about this book, how sexy Damon was, how fun it was to read, so when I went to a local indie the other day I decided to pick it up.  And then I couldn't help but start to read it when I got home, even thought I had other things I should have been reading.  Now, first, let me state that I really did enjoy this book! It was quick and funny, quirky and entertaining.  But, that being said there was something that bugged me just a little bit about it.  I'm not sure what it was, but if I HAD to pin it down, I would say it did remind me a little of just some story you would find on one of those website people share their stories on. Now, that's not a bad thing at all.  I've written on said sites, and there are some really good stories on them, but I think it was just the whole "the main character had a blog" deal that made her seem more real, but at the same time made her seem a little too real (as in, she was designed to resonate with me, and that made it resonate a little LESS with me).  But other than that the whole book was just so much fun!  I can really see why people have been falling in love with this novel, because it has one of those sexy bad-ish boys that we all secretly want to fall in love with, and the witty humor would just pour off the page, which is something I just love.  I also have to applaud the main character for not being a whiny brat.  There are some books out there that have main female characters that just make me want to slap them, and with Katy that didn't happen.  Did it remind me a little of Twilight? Yes. But if you think about it almost all novels could be brought back to Twilight, so it's not a bad thing.  As a whole I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and will be reading the next one as soon as I can get my hands on it!
