The waterfront town of Sausalito brings tourists and locals together for miles of endless views, adventures for the boaters out on the bay, and mountain hiking trails in the infamous Muir Woods for more million-dollar views with big city life just across the Golden Gate Bridge.At seventeen, the local free-spirited, chic Lorelai Castillo loves the community she was born and raised in. With just a summer between her and senior year, she has a big decision to make about joining her father’s legacy or turning her back on the dark and risky organized crime business her parents run.For Christopher Montgomery, Oroville, California is the hometown he was born and raised in with respect, morals, and responsibility from an early age. In his seventeenth year, on the first day of summer, he woke up feeling a change in the air. Something felt off, different as if his life would never be the same.When a new family arrives to the Castillo Yacht Club, Lorelai sets her eyes on the handsome new boy in town. Will Lorelai spend her summer alone? Or will she find a way to heat up the bitter cold Sausalito Nights?
Told in the dual first person Point of view of both main characters, we get into the minds of both Christopher and Lorelai. We get the first impressions, the growing connection, the lust, the love, the fears of what will come. These characters are from different worlds as families go..and their love is forbidden, but sometimes opposites attract and the forbidden fruit is the sweetest. Christopher and Lorelai are young and in love...there is a lot of secret meetups with lustful moments and sweet exchanges.
The story also has drama, suspense, murder,violence secrets, betrayals, loss... some intense, emotion invoking elements are present. I laughed, I cried, I smiled... I wanted to smack someone really badly.... and overall, I enjoyed the journey this book took me on. After the ending, I swear the second book better come out quickly because I need to know what happens.
The first half of this book is about a young couple meeting, one being the daughter of the local Mobs and the other a respectable young man moving into area with his parents. Half way through was going to give up as it was about sex only. Where, when and how!!!! I persevered with it and thankfully I did as second half was really good. I think I realise what the author was trying to do in the first half, which is tell you how serious there relationship was, not just a fling.The couple were forbidden to see one another but this didn't stop them. The second half was more appealing, when there is trouble with the mob. Nothing like a bit of death, torture and betrayal to get the interest going again. The last part of this book makes you want to read more. I would definitely give the next book ago.
