Summary: When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about? (Source: Goodreads)

My Rating:

My Review: I love Sarah Dessen, have since I picked up The Truth About Forever. And as normal for me, when I find an author I like; I search out just about every book they have written.  This Lullaby has been sitting in my TBR pile for a few months now, and I figured since there were no need to read books waiting, now would be a perfect time to read it. 
   I loved Remy and Dexter, I knew from the first moment they met in her soon to be step-father's dealership that he would be the one she tossed all her rules out the window for. And truthfully; I never did trust Don as far as I could throw him, lol. He just seemed almost too good to be true, and you all know those types. The story behind Remy's distrust of love is one that I am sure a lot of teenagers and even adults can relate to. I know that for me, it was hard to trust in real love for the longest time, just because I had step-mothers coming in and out of my life at an amazing rate when I was younger, but like Remy I found that one person who made me see things in a different light.
 I would have liked to see more of what Dexter was thinking throughout the book, but seeing as this was all from Remy's point of view I understand. And Ted, was just too much for me, though I am sure that is one of him in just about every band. Overall this was a great book, one that I am sure I will come back to again and again.
