Port Fare, New York, has fallen into the clutches of true evil. The Dreser brothers have arrived with a scheme to increase drug sales in the area by whatever means possible. Seth Prescott is part of MET (Mobile Enforcement Teams) a branch of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). He's been assigned to work undercover at Port Fare High, and things aren't going very well, until senior Maggie Brown enters the equation. He's harbored a secret crush on her from day one, and now that she is in the center of the case, he's trying to stay clear and objective while walking the line between business and unrequited love.
Maggie is truly the poster child for Heroin Chic, complete with jutting bones and dark-ringed eyes, but is she an addict, or is there another reason for her appearance? She struggles with her feelings for Seth, fearing he is just another person who will eventually let her down, as everyone in her life has done thus far. Maggie has spent her life caring for her alcoholic mother. A task that has left her heavily burdened and alone. Before long, her mother's health takes a turn for the worst, sending Maggie's life into a tale-spin.
While Seth works relentlessly to inject fear into the dealers and flush them out into the open, Maggie fights to stay alive as the hunt turns deadly.
Seth and Maggie's romantic journey is one of humor, heartbreak, and self-discovery.
I absolutely love this cover! I think it's gorgeous and I absolutely love this book! It was completely amazing, amazing, AMAZING!!! I first saw this book on Goodreads and added to my "TBR" list. Then a few days later Sherry contacted Good Choice Reading requesting a review and all I kept thinking "If only life were that simple". I want something and I get it. Just like that. LOL. No, seriously I quickly replied back saying that I'd love to review her book.
From the beginning to the end, there wasn't a dull moment. Sherry makes you fall in love with each of her characters. I'd love for her to write me in and make me fall in love with Booker. ::Sighs:: She goes into details with each characters. So you get to know each character on a personal level and get to understand some of their actions. Mostly only Nicholas Sparks books makes me cry, but not anymore. "Unlovable" made me cry. I felt so bad for Maggie. My heart was so torn for her.
From the beginning, you learn that Seth is undercover in Maggie's school. And his main goal is to find out who is the dealer and who they getting their supplies from. But the unexpected happened, he fell in love with Maggie. The one person who was told her whole life she was an unlovable nothing. She finally had someone who loved her for her and was willing, able and ready to do whatever for her. Which is a sweet change from what Maggie is use to her whole life. Maggie is use to her alcoholic mother ways, her mom did nothing but verbally abuse her. She put her daughter down for every single thing. Maggie went through so much in life and now she was given a break by having Seth in her life. Which she deserved more than anything. Though this isn't just a romance story it's also a suspense and it was so beautifully written. I'd love to see this book exceed the expectations Sherry has for it, because it's just that good.
Sherry also introduces you to a HOT, very cocky and wise ass Booker! I'd like to have him being the superhero in my story. Booker works with Seth to crack down on the drugs happening in Port Fare. And when he meets Maggie, their relationship immediately became a brother/sister relationship. Whenever Maggie and Booker was in the same page, I knew I can expect laughs. There's so much to Booker's story that will tug your heart strings and make you fall in love. I am in love with Booker. LOL
Need I say I love this story? I don't think so. This book was better than I expected and I wish Sherry oceans of success with her series. A definite must buy! A definite Good Choice for Reading!!
