BLOG TOUR + REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Paradise City by CJ Duggan

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, verybad?

This is the first book of CJ Duggan I have read and was intrigued to start with Paradise City. 

The story kicks of when Lexie's is presented with an opportunity to escape a small town to what is outside of her normal, spending time with her estranged family in a new town and new public school. However the not so warm welcome from her cousin Amanda, certainly doesn't kick off the not so nice beginning Lexie was expecting. 

Through Lexie's POV, within a new town dosen't come without drama, especially when Amanda's involved. With Lexie's positivity and trust towards others, she tries to make a go especially trying to fit in at a public school after being home schooled back home. 
That's when she meets Ballantine, the bad boy of public school that she is certainly intrigued to find out more about. However it dosen't come without mischief to all hours of the night and falling into detention. With the attraction for one another, Lexie is excited to see where Paradise city goes...or will she want to return home.

With the additional cast members throughout the book, Boon intrigued me the most, I hope he receives his own book. Overall, a great first book of the Paradise series.
