Some say love is deadly. Some say love is beautiful. I say it is both.

Faith Watters spent her junior year traveling the world, studying in exquisite places, before returning to Oviedo High School. From the outside her life is picture-perfect. Captain of the dance team. Popular. Happy. Too bad it’s all a lie.

It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.

Eighteen-year-old Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn't stand a chance of fitting in. Nor does he want to. His only concern is staying hidden from his past—a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him everything. Including his life.

At Oviedo High School, it seems that Faith Watters and Diego Alvarez do not belong together. But fate is as tricky as it is lovely. Freedom with no restraint is what they long for. What they get is something different entirely.

 The girl needed to grow some balls...

I'm actually going to start off and say that I enjoyed the book, but there were a few things that got on my nerves.

Faith, the main character was just annoying. To be quite honest here I didn't enjoy her the first half of the book and maybe some towards the end. She complained about what people would think about her through the entire book. Mostly because her dad was a Preacher and among other things. I really wish that she would of shut up or either not care anymore.You can only take so much whinnying. I honestly thought that Faith treated Diego horribly. It was always about what people would think. She was white and he was Cuban.It was also over the top and way over exaggerated. She never wanted to be seen with him. She never done anything for herself.And Faith's big dark past. I'm sure some people do have issues with being abandoned, faith was just too over the top. At the beginning I did feel sorry for her, but after the first quarter of the book I'm just like shut up. And Diego, yes he was kinda mean at some points in the book, but he made it up in the end.
Despite what I said above, its the ending that I liked.

The book is similar to Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles.
