Book Review: Torched

Rose Whitfield's senior year just went up in smoke. Instead of having a blast with her best friend, her cheerleading squad, and her boyfriend Ryan, she's framed for arson. Popularity and criminal records don't mix, apparently.

Luckily, Rose knows who's framing her: Paxton Callaway. Paxton and Rose have spent years locked in a war of practical jokes. This time he's gone too far. Rose sets out to prove her innocence, win Ryan back, and take Paxton down hard.

Not necessarily in that order. 

Review of Torched by Andrea Lynn Colt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love love love this book- I don't even know where to begin!

I just finished reading Torched like, five minutes ago and I'm still a little bit hungover (if there is such a thing in books, and well I believe there is) from reading it.
I enjoyed Torched too much that I'm afraid I'll just continue on babbling about how much I love it and what I love about it if I don't keep myself in check. Okay, deep breaths *sigh*

I was bored, I sat down and decided to read my newly conquered book.. and who would have thought I'd get so hooked I'd stay up all night just to try and finish it [even if it was a school night]? Anyway, Torched was that good. I love every bit of it - the plot, the characters, the humor, the drama, the romance, the mystery and the thrill you get while reading it.
The book presents a unique story line that you just can't help but want to know what's next. I loved Miss Colt's writing style. It was carefree and light and absolutely humorous. There was also some twists (I did guess some of it but that didn't stop me from enjoying the book).
What I love most about the book though is the characters. They all hold so much personality and are all equally interesting. But of course, I hold a special place in my heart for Paxton Callaway. Rose and Paxton's relationship is a total roller coaster ride (it hooks you just like that). Their banters, the verbal insults, the way they relate to each other and the way they can openly say they hated each other's guts - it was just all so sweet and sexy. Oh and did I mention Paxton was smokin' hot, maybe with a capital H?

Torched is also filled with life lessons. It tells us that everything we do affect other people and that sometimes we get too caught up in our perfect little world that we miss seeing the people around us.
I love how Rose finally came to terms with everything in the end and how she changed from being mean to being protective and more understanding of the people around her. She's a tough, stubborn and overly determined character and I adore that about her.
There was character development and I liked that very much.

Torched is one book no one should miss (trust me on this)!

Keep the books coming -
