Calling California


Cali Parker is poor. She has a lot on her plate - her father is dying, she's working to help pay the rent, and she's two-years behind in college.

Griffin Brooks is rich. He has not a care in the world - he's acing his engineering courses, his hobby is restoring his fifty-thousand dollar classic car, and he has a different girl on his arm every week.

When Cali sees Griffin on her first day of class, she's immediately smitten and thinks she's found the perfect guy. When Griffin sees Cali at the bank, he immediately forgets the blonde he was with that morning. Then they meet, and their worlds collide.

Cali doesn't belong in Griffin’s world, and he doesn't understand hers. But just when Griffin convinces Cali that their two different worlds can blend, a secret is revealed that tears them apart.

Is their love strong enough to bring them back together, or will their worlds drift further apart?

What I Think

The story is amazing once i started i could not put it down and i have not had that with a book for a while. Cali she is a strong person working he backside off just to have enough money to help pay for day to day things for her family, her dad is dying with cancer and her mum works two jobs just to pay rent and everything else. Cali took two years off of school just so she could save enough money to go.

Griffin a rich boy doesnt have to do anything for money he has a trust fund and everything he wants he just has to ask and he will get.

They meet twice once when they were little at a christmas eve party at griffins house but this time they dont tell each other their names so they cant find each other.

the second time was the frist class of collage for Cali, she could not stop looking at him, to me the are soulmates ment to be together but things happen secrets come out but you will have to read it to what happens for Griffin and Cali. 

i have given this book a 4 reader rating because i loved it from the moment i started reading it.
