Release Date: May 27, 2014
Publisher:Spencer Hill Press
Age Group:Young Adult
Summary: Alex has big plans for camp this year, starting with making it the best summer ever. Having fun and breaking some rules will get her the payback she wants against her parents and her ex-boyfriend. Because of his disgusting texts, she's headed to a super strict all-girls school in the fall.
Then she meets Javier and revenge doesn't seem nearly as important as getting to know the troubled loner determined to keep a low profile at camp. But Alex's trouble-magnet personality and Javier's need to stay in the background don't mix nearly as well as their irresistible chemistry.
With her home life eroding under her feet and her last year of summer camp speeding to a close, Alex wants to make her mark on the world and squeeze every bit of fun out of her time with Javier. Too bad her old plans for revenge turn back on her just in time to ruin everything. Will she lose Javier too?
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and the novella before this one but I had a hard time with Camp Payback.
We are introduced to Alex who lives in the fame of her parents. Her brother is pretty perfect and her mom and dad are the parents who have the perfect family, or are supposed too. Alex doesn’t believe she’s that bad but the tabloids make her out to be the problem child.
Alex is back at summer camp and she vows to stay out of trouble. But, her jerky ex boyfriend is at this summer camp and she also meets a new boy named Javier. Javier has his own set of problems and is trying to stay as far away from trouble as possible.
Alex and Javier get knotted up together pretty fast and things aren't great. Alex really likes him but her ex tends to make trouble and she’s always in the fallout.
I loved seeing Javier cook and I’m glad Alex realizes what is important. However, I just didn’t connect to this one as much as I hoped. I didn’t really connect to the characters very well.
I liked it enough but I hope I like the next one a bit better. I think Alex just seemed really young I guess.
I still love the summer camp angle.
Overall: It was just okay for me. I liked it enough to finish reading but I hope I will enjoy the next one as much as I did the first.
Cover: Cute! Love how they are laying there and we see it from behind. Cuteness!
