Tour! A Review with Teasers & More of Paradise City by C.J. Duggan

Paradise City (Paradise #1) by C.J. Duggan 
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 28, 2015
Publisher: Hachette Australia Books

There's bound to be trouble in Paradise . . .

When her parents decide a change will be good for her, seventeen-year-old Lexie Atkinson never expected they'd send her all the way to Paradise City. Coming from a predictable life of home schooling on a rural Australian property, she's sure that Paradise will be amazing. But when she's thrust into a public school without a friendly face in sight, and forced to share a room with her insipid, hateful cousin Amanda, Lexie's not so sure. 

Hanging out with the self-proclaimed beach bums of the city, sneaking out, late night parties and parking with boys are all things Lexie's never experienced, but all that's about to change. It's new, terrifying . . . and exciting. But when she meets Luke Ballantine, exciting doesn't even come close to describing her new life. Trouble with a capital T, Luke is impulsive, charming and answers to no one. The resident bad-boy leader of the group, he's sexier than any boy Lexie has ever known. 

Amidst the stolen moments of knowing looks and heated touches, Lexie can't help but wonder if Luke is going to be good for her . . . or very, very bad?

Paradise City is the first book in the Paradise Series by C.J. Duggan. I loved this author's Summer series so, when I saw this new series, I knew I had to read it too! This is a completely unrelated series with all new characters in an all new location from the Summer series, but it still has the beachy, Aussie feel with the steamy romance and swoony guys. Lexie has lead a pretty sheltered life so far, and now she's moving to a bigger city, and going to public school for the first time. It's not everything she expected, but I think she adjusts pretty well. I wish she didn't think she has to put out to keep a guy. That bothers me and makes me worry for her. Luke is mysterious, and I wasn't sure I trusted him at first. The guys in this series aren't the Onslow boys, but they are just as lovable! I really want to know more about Dean. I think there is so much more to him than what we got to see in this first book. I'm excited to get to know him better. I wasn't expecting a cliffhanger!! What?? The wait for the next book will be impossible.

The ARC of Paradise City by C.J. Duggan  was kindly provided to me by the publisher through Net Gallet for review. The opinions are my own.
