Summary: The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince when she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.
Review: This book was recommended to me by my friend Brynne, who was all "It's super amazing" so I was all "Okay, I'll read it." Guess what? It's amazing. The reason I gave it four stars and not five is because there was a bit too much romance for my taste. It was supposed to be about breaking the curse, and while it was at the beginning, that kind of got pushed aside by the romance. Also, Kelsey kept talking about his handsome face. The specific word "handsome" was used way too many times. What I loved, though, was how Kelsey was very straight-forward. When she was mad, she said, "I'm mad and this is why. Let's talk it out so it can be resolved." It was such a refreshing change! But she had no confidence. Kelsey went on about how Ren was super hot and she was just a radish and she should leave before she got her heart broken.
Even the tiger knows that Kelsey should stay with the hot guy who's totally into her.
