The Lighter Side of Life and Death by C.K. Kelly Martin

Summary:(from goodreads) Sixteen-year-old Mason Rice is having the night of his life. He's just delivered an incredible performance in the school play, basked in celebratory afterglow vibes at the party of the year, and lost his virginity to one of his best friends—the gorgeous but previously unobtainable Kat Medina. His dreams are coming true, and the future looks golden.
Unfortunately, Kat sees things very differently. Crossing the friendship line was a big mistake, and all she wants is to forget it and move on, even if that means forgetting Mason altogether. What's a guy to do? Well, if you're Mason, you hang your hopes on the first attractive twenty-three-year-old you cross paths with. At first Mason wonders if he's imagining the chemistry . . . until Colette invites him over to her apartment. Suddenly Mason's living in a whole new world.

 Review: I thought this book was just ok. The plot was pretty basic and predictable. Although I still enjoyed watching things slowly unfold. I also didn't really connect with any of the characters. Mason was an interesting protagonist but he kinda started to get annoying after a while. I just couldn't relate to any of the characters and that took away from the story for me. I thought the chemistry between the characters seemed kind of forced and not really that believable. my biggest problem though was the lack of reaction from everyone when the truth came out. I thought that Mason's dad at least should have reacted to the situation a little bit more than he did. They just made it seem like no big deal and that bugged me. Despite that stuff though, I did enjoy this book and i think people who want a romance with a little bit of drama will enjoy this one, it just wasn't one of my favorites.
