Summary: On the surface, Fleur Marceaux has it all. If only the facade matched reality. With one year left at the International School in London, Fleur’s struggling to graduate, her love life is a mess, and she can’t stop thinking about Max, her ex-boyfriend’s best friend. But all that pales compared to the blackmailer determined to destroy her.
There’s a social hierarchy at the International School and Max Tucker is outside the velvet ropes. After watching Fleur break his friend’s heart, Max knows to stay away from trouble, despite the crush he’s had on her since freshman year. But when they’re partnered on a project, Max learns there’s more to Fleur than meets the eye, and she just might be worth the wild ride.
The more time they spend together, the further Max falls. And when a kiss awakens a passion Fleur never imagined, she’s unable to resist Max, who she had thought was all wrong for her but might be the only thing that’s right. But will he stand by her when her secrets are revealed?

My Thoughts: I was graciously given an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
Chanel Cleeton once again knocks it out of the park for a home run! That baseball reference will make a lot more sense once you’ve read this book, which feel free to skip reading this review and go straight to reading the book.
This book gave me everything I wanted from Fleur and allowed me to fangirl over getting to read a whole book dedicated to this tough as nails soft as marshmallow character. She is such a perfect blend of complicated and simple, I loved her in book 1 and my love just grew throughout the series!
Max and Fleur have explosive passion, which we knew was coming in book 2, but watching it simmer to a boil was fantastic! I loved how vulnerable Fleur became with Max. She has always been so confident but in this book we got to watch as her confidence grew from allowing herself to be vulnerable.
We knew from Maggie that Fleur was loyal and some of my favorite moments in the previous two books were how Maggie saw her. So I really enjoyed as Max discovered all the quirks and beauty that make up Fleur.
Chanel Cleeton has such a wonderful way of writing and develops these characters that are lovable and flawed and so human! If you have yet to read this series I highly recommend you pick them up!
