Khloe Hudson is all out of everything.

All out of patience for her alcoholic father. All out of money from her summer job savings. All out of scholarship essay ideas. And all out of room in her heart for people who don’t care to see her for who she really is.

But even she has to admit that the French jerk attending her academy is starting to worm his way in just a bit.

Cash Castille couldn’t care less about what Khloe thinks she knows. None of her advanced classes have taught her that love isn’t something that can be measured or figured out using scientific methods. Actions often speak louder than words. And although he gets a rise out of driving her crazy, he can’t help but wonder when her brain will stop arguing with what their hearts already know.

When Cash drops a bomb and asks for the favor of a lifetime, Khloe reluctantly agrees because despite the terms, she needs the benefits of their arrangement. However, as Cash and Khloe navigate through their new found relationship, she can’t help but wonder if the cost of this ploy will be another expense she can’t afford to give. Her heart.

 Love Is An Action by Bry Foster

Love Is An ActionKhloe didn’t fit in anywhere. The caregiver and often the breadwinner to support her alcoholic father, going to the elite high school on a scholarship was the one reward she has had in life. Even that was tainted by the brutal bullying she faced for not being good enough or rich enough. When the hotter than hot Cash Castille takes an interest in her, she discovers she may be nothing more than another notch on his bedpost until they discover they have more in common than seems possible, considering the worlds they each came from. Cash needs help, in a big, big way and he proposes a plan that will take care of all of Khloe’s financial and educational woes for doing a simple thing that may take a little time out of her life. Will their ruse become a little too real to her heart? Can she play the charade without breaking her heart? Cash is a playboy, a rich bad boy and everything Khloe is fighting not to love. The future is promised to no one, but Khloe wants a promise she may never hear.

Love Is An Action by Bry Foster takes all that is far too real in so many teens’ lives, twists it up and adds a few knots that will tear at your heart one moment, have you shaking your head in complete astonishment the next and ready to jump to Khloe’s defense the next time. See wealthy teens at their worst, jealousy rearing its ugly head and the princesses of the wealthy do all they can to be nasty to Khloe. You will love Khloe’s fa├žade while you feel her pain, love her best friend and even find some charm in all that is Cash. Are any of them perfect? No, definitely not. Are they ready for what is ahead of them? Who knows, but getting to this point was one heck of a ride into a world where people can be less than they seem and also so much more.

Ms. Foster has brought teen angst to life in often brutal ways, giving one young girl far more to deal with than many adults will ever face. Magnetic young adult reading where rooting for the underdog is a natural feeling.

I received this copy from author Bry Foster in exchange for my honest review. We have no other relationship, personal or professional.
