Goodreads Summary: Companion to Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker. 

Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different…

This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt--with her.

Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy…

Note: Mature themes, sexual situations, religious discussions.

Cindy's Review:

I've waiting to read this book. Omq. Since forever. Because Catching Jordan was good man. i really love that book. Catching Jordan was so good, I reread  it twice. Omg. And I hate rereading books, because I'm already going to know what's going to happen. But I guess not with Catching Jordan. ;D 

The Cover: 
It's cute. The bike thing while holding hands. This is random but my brother rode on a  horse while holding hands with his wife for an engagement picture. This cover is kind of like that, but a younger version for teens. 

The Character: 
I really love how Miranda Kenneally's characters from the last two books appear in this book. We get to see more of the Jordan-Sam relationship and Parker-Will relationship, which I totally crave and ship. The third book introduces a new couple, Kate and Matt. 

Matt - Matt went to Cumberland Camp before when he was younger. Back then, he was quiet, shy, geeky. People teased him, bullied him, etc. He almost went suicidal. Until, he met Kate. Kate, who changed how he viewed himself and who kept him alive. Now, he's confident. He's funny, popular, hot. he had a girlfriend named Sarah. They had a three year relationship but they broke up. And Matt was so not expecting to fall in love. Again. With the girl he fell in love with so long ago. 

Okay, so Matt. Yep. The love story you would imagine. You meet him at camp. You fall in love. You date. Happily ever after. But Kate just couldn't do that.

Kate - Kate is really religious. I have nothing against religious people, but she is so religious that I just want to kill her sometimes. And annoying. Like ohmyfreakingawd, what's wrong with you? Apparently, talking to a guy alone is sinning. And I'm like omfg girl, man up. And of course, kissing, making out is way out of hand. I get the no sex thing, but like no holding hands or talking? No wonder you don't have friends. 

What I like though, is that in a way, characters all connect to each other. Like despite Kate being way down low in the popularity chart, she was still able to go to one of Jordan's popular parties. ;D

Parker - Parker was already introduced in Stealing Parker. As of she's the main character. Either way, she kind of played a role in this book. She encouraged Kate and Matt's relationship and Parker and Kate actually ended up becoming friend which is good. There are a lot of relationships in this book, but it's cute and all.

The Extras:
If you haven't gotten the connection yet, Kate goes to Hundred Oaks High School. She knows about Jordan and stuff because Jordan is popular. And I guess Parker is also kind of popular. Agh. Anyways, love Jordan! ;D  

Rating: (1-10): 8.5
I love Matt and stuff, but the religious stuff. ....

Happy Reading
