Summary from Goodreads:
Sparks fly in this romantic young-adult mystery.

Cheerleader Rose Whitfield's senior year goes up in smoke when she's framed for arson. Sure that the culprit is her neighbor Paxton, with whom she's been feuding since middle school, she sets out to clear her name and take Paxton down hard--not necessarily in that order.


I really really enjoyed Torched. The romance, mystery, and dynamic range of characters made this book a fast and fun read.  So here are 5 reasons to pick this book up!

1. The Mystery - Rose is wrongfully accused and it sends her social and love life down the drain.  She has to solve the mystery to clear her name and save her senior year.  I loved the criminal mystery aspects of the story, it took unexpected turns and was unpredictable!

2. Witty Banter - Rose is a master at sarcasm and funny comments.  Her pranks and conversations with Paxton are fantastic.

3. Character Development - Not all the characters are likable characters but they do learn from some of their mistakes and grow through the course of the book.  I appreciate the non-perfect characters, it brought honesty to the story and make the characters more relate-able/believable.

4. Romance - The romance is spot on.  Even though the romance is a bit predictable, I thought it was super cute and slow building with loads of tension!

5. Fun - Torched is fun and quick read.  I was smiling throughout the whole book wanting to know who framed Rose and how her love life was going to pan out.  I highly recommend Torched, this book does fly under the radar but it is well worth the read!
