Blech!! By page 56 "it appeared that Kat and Ty were trying to to notice that they were attracted to each other. " By page 102, "Don't make me beg, Chandler.He kissed her. Gave her what she wanted."
Oh, come on!! The book got thrown across the room and I went back to reading, Marley and Me. At least the kisses in that book came from an overgrown dog.
Great book - 2nd of 3 books set in the town of Twilight Cove - but completely independent story (I read this one first)
