First of all, it is refreshing to read a book where the characters go somewhere different. Mexico is definitely a fascinating place, this book brings it to life in a way. I've never been there, so it was fun to read in perspective.
The plot in general was fantastic. The way the author wrote it is clever. How Colton speaks and thinks is so real. With the "whatevering" and the "I'm like". Its different, but in a very good, cool way. I love how Alex is deaf and how Colton just wants to whisper endearments to her, knowing she won't hear them. The music aspect was awesome. I love the DJ-ing; the budding romance was so cute! And when I use the word 'cute', I literally mean 'CUTE'!
The Mexican mafia-style going on is like watching a thriller. The guns, the bodyguards; the occasion beatings. It was all thrilling and it was great to read.
I did not breeze through the book, at first. I was reading it on and off because I had other books I was reading at the same time, but once I really got into it, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
