Description: Morgan Sparks and Cam Browne are a match made in heaven. They've been best friends since birth, they tell each other everything, and oh yeah- they're totally hot for each other.  But a week before their joint Sweet Sixteen bash, everything changes. Cam's awkward cousin Pip comes to stay, and Morgan is stunned when her formerly perfect boyfriend seems to be drifting away.  When Morgan demands answers, she's shocked to discover the source of Cam's distance isn't another girl- it's another world. Pip claims that Cam is a fairy. No, seriously. A fairy. And now his people want Cam to return to their world and take his rightful place as Fairy King.  Determined to keep Cam with her, Morgan plots to fool the fairies. But as Cam continues to change, she has to decide once and for all if he really is her destiny, and if their “perfect” love can weather an uncertain future.

I Give This ...
I wanted so much to like this book.  For the most part is was ok.  I loved the author's writing style and the premise for the story was interesting.  I liked the characters as well.  But, the major drawback for me was I never bought into the intensity of Morgan and Cam's relationship.  I didn't think I got enough back story to believe in the lengths Morgan would go to save Cam.  And since there's very little interaction between the two for most of the story, I just didn't feel it.  I actually felt like there was more of a connection between Pip and Morgan (which is explained).  I actually would have really enjoyed this story if it was told from dual viewpoints.  I would have liked to understand more of what Cam was going through the entire time.  It would have been great to understand the actual fairy aspect of the story.  I am intrigued by the author's style though, and plan to read her future works.
