Paradise City Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Welcome to our stop on the Paradise City Blog Tour. ^_^

Paradise City
(Paradise, #1)
By C.J. Duggan
Release Date - 28th April, 2015
Published by - Hachette Australia

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?

My Review:

Being an Aussie girl myself I loved that it's based in Australia.

We meet Lexie, a 17yr old girl living in the outback of Australia. Being from such a small town she's been dreaming of the day where her parents will finally let her go to a proper high school. Lexie's cousin Amanda lives in Paradise City with her mum and Dad and was telling Lexie all about the beach and guys, ever since then she's had her heart set on Paradise City High. Well, dreams can come true. So now Lexie is off to the city of her dreams and what awaits her is not what she was hoping for.

This is my first taste of Duggan's work and it won't be the last.
 For me it was a little slow (just a little) in the beginning but picked up after a few chapters and then I just couldn't put it down. I think Duggan portrayed the whole "High School" scene perfectly, kids these days can be so cruel but some can just be acting to fit in. I truly felt for Lexie having to go from a quiet home to non stop chaos and mean teenagers. But who can blame her crushing on the bad boy? Who hasn't been there, right? ^_^

All in all I loved. It's a story that will have you coming back for more. Just prepare yourself for a doozy of a cliffhanger lol.
