At sixteen, Hadley Moore knows exactly who she is—a swimmer who will earn a scholarship to college. Totally worth all the hard work, even if her aching shoulders don’t agree. So when a guy dressed as Hollywood’s latest action hero, Heath Hall, crashes her swim meet, she isn’t amused. Instead, she’s determined to make sure he doesn’t bother her again. Only she’s not sure exactly who he is.
The swim meet isn’t the first event the imposter has interrupted, but a little digging turns up a surprising number of people who could be Heath Hall, including Hadley’s ex-boyfriend and her best friend’s crush. She soon finds herself getting caught up in the mysterious world of the fake Heath Hall.
As Hadley gets closer to uncovering the masked boy’s identity she also discovers some uncomfortable truths about herself—like she might resent the long shadow her late brother has cast over her family, that she isn’t as happy as she pretends to be with her life choices… and that she is falling for the last guy she ever thought she would like.
This book was a good read for me. I sat down this afternoon, on the last weekday of my vacation and read it in one go. It had grabbed me, and I really wanted to see what Hadley would go through and if she would loosen up a little bit.
Hadley made me tense, really, extremely tense. Maybe because I can understand the type of pressure a person can put on themselves, and feel like others are putting on them. She is a powerhouse though, and someone who I really enjoyed reading about.
It was neat to have the mystery of Heath Hall hanging over this book, as Hadley learned how to relax a little, partly due to the mystery.
I also loved the reveal of who the real Heath Hall was. It was great.
This is definitely a fun summer read.
