Alexandria’s drug-dealing boyfriend, Joel, isn’t exactly the white knight she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t deny the crazy connection they have. She would do anything for him, including helping him sell drugs in order to fit perfectly into his world.
After catching Alexandria dealing for Joel, instead of turning her into the cops, Alexandria’s mother forces her to move to her grandparents’ farm in West Virginia. Spending the summer in the country, away from Joel, is the last thing Alexandria wants to do. But lucky for her, the sexy farmhand, Landon, who helps out around her grandparents’ place, is a very nice distraction. She tries her best to ignore her attraction to him, especially since she still loves Joel.
When Joel does the unforgivable, Alexandria turns to her new friend, Landon, for comfort, and it ignites an undeniable spark of attraction between them. Soon, she finds herself caught between two very different men, and the struggles within her heart just might end up breaking Alexandria.

Want to talk about an amazing story... well this is it. I mean I was rendered speechless after reading this book. K.A. has a way of doing that to me but with Lexi & Joel & Landon I just could not get enough. I was at the edge of my seat the entire time wanting no needing to turn the pages fast to see what was going to happen next.
Lexi is in love with Joel the bad boy. She will do anything to be with him and when she has to chose between him or nothing she goes for broke and starts selling drugs for him. They have this push and pull sort of relationship if you can call it that because Lexi sacrifices everything she is and her character to be with Joel. Selling drugs and acting bad ass which she knows she is not is just a few sacrifices to be with Joel. But when she gets busted selling drugs her parents give her an option go to your grandparents house for the summer or they turn Joel in. Of course she is devastated but she knows her parents mean business and she does not want Joel to get in trouble so she goes to her grandparents house in West Virginia.
Once she arrives Lexi realizes that her grandparents are no nonsense and they will make her earn her keep. They have a farm hand Landon and he works hard for what he has. As he begins to teach Lexi the farm she begins to have feelings for him and as hard as she fights them because she loves Joel she is having a hard time. Then Joel does something and Lexi leans on Landon and the sparks ignite and holy hell this is where the book gets wild and I mean WILD! This is a must read for everyone who loves those stories where nothing is as it seems and no matter what you think it always ends up something else. MUST READ!

If there were a medal for sneaking out of the house without getting caught the most times, I’d be the recipient for sure. I smiled to myself as I slowly slid open my bedroom window. I glanced down to the yard below. It was illuminated by the streetlight across the road from our house. I squinted as I looked around, checking for movement of any kind.
"You’re mine, and I intend to keep it that way for as long as you want me. I keep waiting for the day when you’ll wake up and realize that you’re so much better than me.”
I shoved him down on the bed and climbed on top of him. “Shut up. I’m not better than you. You’re fucking perfect, Joel. Perfect.”

I’d prefer to be stomped to death by a cow rather than spend the day stuck with my grandpa, but I didn’t think I should tell him that.
While I had admitted earlier that Landon was cute, nothing had prepared me to see him shirtless and wet in the pool. It was obvious that he’d dived under right before I came out. His hair was dripping wet, and water glistened as it ran down his chest and stomach. I knew I was standing there with my mouth hanging open, but at that moment, I didn’t possess the ability to close it.
“Whatever. Even when you’re tired, you never shut up.”
I stuck my tongue out at him. “Are you trying to tell me that I talk too much?”
“Nah. If you talked too much, I’d just put duct tape over your mouth.”
“At least you’re honest,” I grumbled.

“Relax, okay? I’m not going to try to do dirty things to you in the back of a movie theater.” He paused for a second. “Unless you want me to.”
“Shut up and watch the movie.”
