After shy, quiet Lucy and her family move from their small hometown in Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, she is surprised when Ryan, the most popular boy at school, asks her out. Soon, she is swept up in a whirlwind romance and her naive and trusting nature allows her to fall head over heels in love with her too-good-to-be-true suitor. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself enraptured by the excitement of her new relationship, leaving her blinded to the warning signs of danger ahead. Can her fairy tale romance last, or will she find that her prince charming is more like a wolf in sheeps clothing?

  32. to be honest, I fell in love with the synopsis. it always interest me how this kind of story will write out. It could be predictable but there were some cases where the synopsis underwhelmed the actual writing. Thankfully, I'm up for this !^^
    Meanwhile, I don't really find the cover appeals to my attention. A bit looks like DVD's cover and gives away too much cause i usually don't really like where the faces of the characters plastered on the cover. However, as long as the inside is great, I can compromise with the cover ;)
