Sadie had been watching Motorcycle Madnezz  and Sadie thought about how dull he life seemed in comparison to the reality show and how much she preferred it that way. She groaned when a commercial came on and it reminded her she couldn’t put off getting a costume  much longer. Her brother Elliott had forced her to accept a costume party invitation. When Sadie asked why she couldn’t skip the party Elliott said anything to get her into something besides her sweatpants. He also added she was turning into a store hag, limp hair, no sense of style and she growled at their customers. Then he said important people wanted a face to the fantastic food.

Then Gear invited her to dinner but it would have to be at her house or his because of paparazzi.

This was a great story and romance and I loved it. I loved the plot and pace. I loved how Sadie and Gear came together and were so much alike. I was sorry that Adrian and Sadie’s best friend had hurt her so bad as well as the hurt Gear went through with Sarah and Brian. I know Sadie and Gear fell pretty quick but in this instance it was just right. I loved Sadie and Gear’s family. I chuckled at times while reading this book. I couldn’t find anything I didn’t like about this story which is always great when it happens. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.
