It’s the beginning of senior year, and seventeen year old Juliet Somers has made the rash decision to transfer to her boyfriend’s school in an effort to spend more time with him. Sexy bad boy Johnny Parker is a legend at Leclare Academy, and Juliet still can’t believe that an average girl like her was able to tame his wild ways. She can’t wait to start her new school with him by her side.
But one night, Johnny’s self-destructive habits lead to a stunning betrayal–and Juliet realizes she’s made a huge mistake. Now she’s stuck at a school where she doesn’t fit in, and all the girls seem to hate her guts. Even worse, Johnny is determined to get her back, pulling crazy stunts to win her forgiveness. Juliet is resigned to being an outcast for the rest of her senior year, with no friends, and no clue what she wants to do with her life.
Things start to look up when she gets to know some of Johnny’s friends, and finds that some of them are really good guys. With the help of an unlikely ally at her side, Juliet begins to think her situation is not as bad as it seems. As the school year rolls on, she opens herself up to new experiences, makes some huge mistakes, and discovers things about herself she’s not sure she likes.
Juliet resolves to stay strong against Johnny’s seductive tactics, but it’s becoming increasingly harder to deny she still has feelings for him. Will she risk her heart to him again–or will a hot contender manage to sweep her off her feet?
Drop what you are doing and go buy this book right now!
No not tomorrow, right now!!
I will never understand why bad books like Hunger Games 3- Mockingjay and Divergent three- Allegiant (why cant authors write good endings to a series) have sold so many copies but amazing books like this hardly sell any.
This is not only my favorite book of the year; it’s my favorite book of next year too.
Slow burn had everything a book should have. It’s like you dream of this imaginary book with this amazing romance and characters and setting only to start to wonder if u will ever find it. But it exists, it really does!!
The book starts with Juliet catching her boyfriend, Johnny, cheating on her. Even though she’s devastated, this wouldn’t have been that big of a deal except she just transferred schools so she could spend her senior year with him. So instead of having the best year of her life she begins her senior year surrounded by a bunch of snotty rich kids that hate her for gaining the attention of their star football player. But things don’t actually turn out that bad. Even though her ex won’t leave her alone trying to get her back, she ends up making really great friends, the most surprising one being Johnny’s own brother Dean. Oh God Dean! He makes my former book boyfriend Kellan Kyle look like a toad. But really all the characters were great. This was such a character driven book, I felt like they were my friends. And Juliet was such an amazing main character, she was relatable, and likeable and hilarious. This book had everything. Great characters a heart stopping romance and amazing drama. Just writing about it makes me want to read it again!
