This Game Is Getting All Too Real

He said: I like to keep under the radar and mostly hang out with my friends from the rez. But when I saved Riley Berenger from falling off a mountain, that rich suburban princess decided to try to save me.

She said: If I can help Sam Tracy win the heart of the girl he can't get over, I'll pay him back for helping me. I promised him I would, no matter what it takes.
My opinion

Riley is this Pink Girl. She's a smart blond (weird, huh?), she over thinks everything, plans a lot and is full of energy and words. She also sketch a lot.
Sam is this Native hot and strong guy that is a gentleman, mysterious and very nice (also adorable).
They both get to know each other in a Leadership event when they get paired for a scavenger hunt. At the beginning they hated each other because Sam hates Riley's brother and is being rude to her so Riley is angry at him for being rude. Riley is kind of blinded by anger and does something really stupid, she falls from a tree to a side rock that excels a mountain and she can't climb back because she's really hurt. Then Sam goes down with her and stays with her taking care of her and everything. They become really close friends and share a deep secret.
The next day they're rescued and Riley is decided to help him win the heart of the girl he loves. And that's when everything starts.

I loved that. How they hated each other and then they became so close. I wanted all the story to take place in that cliff or whatever, it was probably my favorite part.
I didn't like Riley so much, she's a dumb blond but smart. I mean, she's really smart (according to this book) but she acts super stupidly almost all the book.
Sam on the other hand is really smart and nice, he's a quiet guy with a lot going on. I loved him, I could relate more with his attitude.
I liked Drew, Riley's best friend, but unfortunately she isn't in a lot of scenes of the book.
And Ryan and Fred. Ryan didn't convinced me, I liked him but meh. And Fred is an amazing girl, at least that's how it sounds, I want to read about these two in Hooked.
The book is kind of fatty, it's long and with a bunch of scenes and I liked that.
It's narrated by both, Riley and Sam. I didn't like much Riley's parts, she thinks in a weird very girly way. I loved Sam's parts, he's so harsh with himself but at the same time so adorable.
I liked Sam's friends a lot! Well, just Trevor and Martin, I want to know a bit more about those two.
The ending was perfect, I really liked it. A bit before the ending in their "adventure" everything seemed a bit predictable and forced, but then it became better an easier to read.
And I think that's it, it isn't a very original topic but it has really nice parts, I liked it.

About the author
I'm an American author living in the American Southwest by way of Chicago.
Born and raised in Park Ridge, Illinois, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona, after college, never expecting to live more than one year among cactus and people who’d never seen snow. I was wrong. It certainly didn't hurt that I met my future husband in Phoenix too.
Most of my stories are set in the American Southwest because I think the desert is a cool place. Living in Phoenix, I'm surrounded by Native American culture and influences, not to mention intriguing Hohokam petroglyphs and centuries-old canals. There are over 20 tribes in Arizona and I'm lucky to be neighbors to the Gila River and the Salt River Indian Communities.
When I'm not busy writing my next novel, I like to travel, visit museums, support local theater productions, hike, and pretend that I'm training for a triathlon. In no particular order, I've been chased by javalinas, rattlesnakes, coyotes, and even one curious black bear.
