Good Blog Tour Stop!

Honk! Honk!
Welcome to the Good Blog Tour Stop!!
See below for Giveaway!
Good (Too Good, #1)
Good is part 1 in the 2 part Too Good Series!!
Cadence Miller is a good girl. She just happens to make one terrible mistake her junior year in high school which costs her ten months in juvenile detention. Now a senior, she’s lost everything: her best friend, the trust of her parents, driving privileges, Internet access. It’s a lonely existence.

But there is one bright spot: Mark Connelly, her very cute, very off-limits 28-year-old calculus teacher. She falls hard for him—a ridiculous schoolgirl crush headed nowhere. She can’t help it. He’s the only good thing at Crestview High. She doesn’t expect him to reciprocate her feelings. How inappropriate, right? But he does. And he shows her.

And that’s when her life goes from bad to good.
My Review!
5 Freaking get me some Pepto stars! Goodness gracious this book messed me up. My stomach stayed in knots the whole time. I kept thinking this is so wrong but why does it feel so right. Arghh! I am pulling my hair out.
I fell in love with Cadence. I fell in love with her innocence and wit and just everything about her. Sometimes throughout the book I forgot she was only 17/18. Her maturity is amazing, but I know that this is mainly due to having up to grow up too fast following "the incident".
Ahh, Mark. I love Mark. Mark is ah-mazing. The problem is, he's Cadence's teacher. So, isn't it crossing the line for him to have any type of relationship with a student? Yes. It definitely is.
Summer somehow makes you look past it. You look past it to see the beauty in the relationship. You see the healing that Mark does for Cadence. You see their love shining through.
This book is amazeballs! I am seriously on pins and needles waiting for book 2, the final installment!!!
