Jersey Angel Title: Jersey AngelAuthor: Beth Ann BaumanEdition: hardcover, thank you TBG ToursSeries: noneReleased Date: May 8th, 2012Publisher: Wendy Lamb Books
Goodreads / Amazon It's the summer before senior year and the alluring Angel is ready to have fun. She's not like her best friend, Inggy, who has a steady boyfriend, good grades, and college plans. Angel isn't sure what she wants to do yet, but she has confidence and experience beyond her years. Still, her summer doesn't start out as planned. Her good friend Joey doesn't want to fool around anymore, he wants to be her boyfriend, while Angel doesn't want to be tied down. As Joey pulls away, and Inggy tours colleges, Angel finds herself  spending more time with Inggy's boyfriend, Cork. With its cast of vivid and memorable characters, this tale from the Jersey shore is sure to make some waves.
Angel, a promiscuous teen, is unsure about her future. Maybe not unsure, because that seems like she has a slight clue and is deciding between two things. Angel is literally clueless about what she wants, while her best friend Inggy is bound to get into a good school because of her ambition. To most readers, they could relate to Angel in that aspect, but I wasn't really able to since I'm one of the people that has nearly everything planned out in their life. I liked Inggy more in that aspect. The parts I did like about Angel: the way she holds herself. She wasn't afraid to be herself and she was confident and said what she wanted.
The sex in the book was a major part, honestly! Angel was a real girl who had needs, and wasn't afraid to find someone to fulfill them. She may have gone a little far in some parts but this made the novel even more real. 
This novel didn't have the exact spark I was looking for, but it wasn't terrible either! After reading this, I felt satisfied. I knew what I was going to read when I picked up the book. In some aspects it surprised me and at other times it let me down a bit. Overall, this was definitely a summer read - there's no doubt about that! It's not one of the books that sucks you in - it takes a little while to adapt to the book. Once you finish, I'm sure you'll be satisfied with it!
