Magic Hands by Jennifer Laurens

Summary: Cort, the high school senior jock seems to have it all -- except a summer job. When he lands one doing women's nails, his eyes are opened to the catty, back-stabbing world of females. Girls he thought he knew and trusted turn out to shock and use him.

He gets to know Rachel, an elusive girl the others gossip about, a girl with secrets. From her he learns there is more to life than weekend partying and social status, and one of the secrets she shares with him will change his life forever.

My Thoughts: Let me start off by saying, I have been eyeing Jennifer's books for a while but I have not seen any store around here that sells them and I've looked on amazon for them but each one is a bit pricey. 10-11 bucks a piece and that adds up quick. First, let me say they are worth the 10 dollars!!!!! I think if they were 20, I'd still pay it! Sometimes you run into an author and you just fall in love with their words. Thats how I feel about Jennifer right now. I love her books. I love the stories. I love the characters and each one I read I feel myself falling more and more in love with the guys in them. So what if I'm a hopeless romantic and Cort just does it to me!!!!! This is one of those books that you want to know what happens so you want to read each page quickly but at the same time you need to read each word as slow as possible so you can devour it and enjoy each letter.I swear I read each sentence twice because I loved the sweetness of it! We are introduced to Cort who is the guy who has it all; popularity, girl's, he's the one the guys want to be. You know the type, jock, popular friends, the untainable cool guy that every girl dreams about but is too shy to talk too. But he's not just a pretty face, he's charming and real. We than meet Rachel who is a rich girl who is really smart and caring. Cort and Rachel have noticed each other over the years but Rachel says she will never date a jock and Cort has just kind of went through girl by girl and never had a real serious relationship. They start to notice each other more and more. Cort than gets a job at a nail salon because he is in serious need of money and its the only job in town. Of course it gets throughout the school and the girls start swarming in to get their nails done by the popular hot guy at school. Cort learns how girls really are; gossiping backstabbing girls. Cort has girls wanting him and Rachel has guys wanting her. I liked all the side characters. I loved Rachel's friends and I really liked Cort's sister. We learn that Rachel has a few secrets of her own, and Cort swears that he will show Rachel he's different from all the other guys. This story is romantic, heartfelt, wonderful, and amazing. What happens to Cort and Rachel? Do the sparks keeping flying between them or do they move onto their friends who want them? What happens with Cort's job? Is he good at nails? You need to go read the book now!

Overall: Loved it!! AMAZING!!! You need to read it now! Romantic!

Cover: Love the cover. Love how her nails are painted, and the way his hands are around her overlapping hers. I love all Jennifer's covers!
