Summary from Goodreads

Kissing someone other than your boyfriend is cheating.

But what about thinking about kissing someone other than your boyfriend?

What about thinking about it a lot?

Brenna Blixen has the perfect boyfriend. He's sweet, sexy, loyal, and sure that Brenna is the best thing that's ever happened to him. But being the perfect girlfriend isn't as easy as Brenna thought it would be, and the pressure that comes with trying to be Jake's everything is beginning to weigh on her. When her mother surprises her with a trip to Paris over winter break, she's torn. She anticipated spending her vacation snuggling with Jake Kelly, ice-skating, drinking cocoa, and relaxing...but what girl in her right mind would turn down a trip to Paris?

Things only get more confusing when she winds up unexpectedly and unavoidably thrown into Saxon Maclean's arms in the City of Lights. Far away from the comfort and stability she finds at Jake's side, Brenna faces down the feelings that have been swirling through her since the day she laid eyes on Saxon. Is it fair for her to call herself Jake's girlfriend when she has so many unresolved feelings about someone else?

Brenna is determined to figure it all out, even if it means making some of the hardest decisions of her entire life. She also learns that every single thing she does has rippling repercussions, some that fill her with total regret. By the time she figures out what her heart truly wants, she realizes that she may not be able to have it after all.

My Review's Saxon and Brenna's story now. I was thinking the story would be like Thoughtless by S.C Stephens. Good thing it didn't turned out that way. I love Thoughtless by the way, but I don't want this to turn out this way. 

Honestly speaking, I prefer Saxon. It is more appealing to know that a bad guy becomes a good guy for the girl she loves. However, this story do not follow rules and that makes this book stands out from the rest. I'm suppose to hate Brenna for ruining such a perfect relationship with Jake by trying things out with Saxon. But I can't blame her. I agree with her that she first needs to deal with whatever she and Saxon have before committing herself seriously to anyone. What they have is undeniable, so why not deal with it. It's just now or later, so why not end all the miseries.

I always have this impression of Brenna as being mature. And I think she showed it by breaking up with Jake, to know what she really feels between these two hot guys. She became mature by admitting to herself that she's still young and still needs to learn a lot. Though she needs to experience a lot of pain before getting the lesson, at least she did learn.

I was hoping really hard that Saxon is the right guy for her. I just don;t want to waste all the drama for nothing. Still, it ends up in nothing! aargh! But what happened made me realize that this two are not really meant for each other. They're just there to be each other's friend. But even if it did not ended up like I wanted to, it's nice to know the realization from both of them of who they really are for each other. There's this special connection between them that will never go away. Brenna is the only one who saw the good in Saxon when everyone sees him as bad, and he is the only one who understands what Brenna really feels and knows because he believes they're the same. I just hope Jake would understand that part.
