When her parents decide a change will be good for her, seventeen-year-old Lexie Atkinson never expected they'd send her all the way to Paradise City. Coming from a predictable life of home schooling on a rural Australian property, she's sure that Paradise will be amazing. But when she's thrust into a public school without a friendly face in sight, and forced to share a room with her insipid, hateful cousin Amanda, Lexie's not so sure.
Hanging out with the self-proclaimed beach bums of the city, sneaking out, late night parties and parking with boys are all things Lexie's never experienced, but all that's about to change. It's new, terrifying . . . and exciting. But when she meets Luke Ballantine, exciting doesn't even come close to describing her new life. Trouble with a capital T, Luke is impulsive, charming and answers to no one. The resident bad-boy leader of the group, he's sexier than any boy Lexie has ever known.
Amidst the stolen moments of knowing looks and heated touches, Lexie can't help but wonder if Luke is going to be good for her . . . or very, very bad?

I need more, like right now.
Lexie has always dreamt of Paradise, What would school be like?! What would it be like meeting boys but when it comes down to it, would it be as she imagined or is reality a letdown.
I loved Lexie's character. She was easy to relate too, I could see her as on of my best friends.
The bad boy, surfer but that's just scratching the surface, there is so much more to him. I loved getting to see the real him.
Paradise city gripped me from the beginning, the storyline flowed well and was easy to relate too.
A book about adjusting to adulthood, self-discovery and first love!!
