He wasn't supposed to be nice. This changes everything. Charlotte Robinson has one goal: survive her senior year. Well, if she's truthful, it's actually to survive her new life without her mom.

Charlotte Robinson has one goal: survive her senior year. Well, if she's truthful, it's actually to survive her new life without her mom. Which would be a lot easier to do if her dad was actually dealing with the death. Instead, he’s buried himself in so many abandoned vehicles that their yard has turned into a suburban junkyard and it's just a matter of time before the city intervenes. When Lucas Addington, the obnoxious rich kid who's been banished to the small town of Sweet Water, douses her in his carmel macchiato, she's pretty sure she's reached her lowest low. But that's only the beginning. He's conceited and spoiled—everything she expected from a billionaire's heir—until things begin to change. Suddenly, she finds herself drawn to him for reasons she can't explain. He makes her feel safe and wanted, something she'd forgotten how to feel. Just when she allows herself to open up to him, her life comes crashing down around her. Now Charlotte must decide if she can fix her crumbling life and keep Lucas, or fail and lose everything she holds dear...again. 1 town. 1 high school. 12 sweet romances. Read Misunderstanding the Billionaire's Heir from Anne-Marie Meyer. It is the first installment of the Sweet Water High Multi-Author Series. Each book is a stand-alone but follows the school year chronologically.

    I had so much fun reading this first book in the new Sweet Water High series. Growing up I loved reading Sweet Valley High! Anybody else out there remember those? Come on, don't be afraid to admit it. You all know you read them. Funnily enough, about a month ago I was looking at my old paperback copies of them. Hahahaha! When I first picked up this book to read I didn't initially think about Sweet Valley High.

Funnily enough, about a month ago I was looking at my old paperback copies of them. Hahahaha! When I first picked up this book to read I didn't initially think about Sweet Valley High. But then when some of the teenage drama started, I couldn't help but think back on that series and smile. I even loved the reference that the author threw into the book. Ah, good memories. This is going to be a fun series that I can't wait to recommend to friends (and the high school librarian) for their teenagers. It's great to have clean reads that I know my teenage daughters and others can enjoy just as much as myself. From the very beginning I found myself laughing out loud, cringing, smiling, and cheering these characters on. These characters felt very real in some of their struggles and made it easy to connect with them. Charlotte's mom has passed away and she's trying to keep her family surviving. Especially when her dad is struggling. He's throwing himself into projects to avoid the pain but has left Charlotte to pick up some of the slack. Her dad, herself and her younger brother were a family that I enjoyed reading about. The emotions were well written. I loved Charlotte's go to older friend, Winny. She was wonderful and a great strength to Charlotte. There were several other teenage characters introduced in this book that set up some of the characters for the future books (I believe there will be 15). Yay! I can't forget to mention the character that adds some drama and comedy to our story...not to mention some swoonyness too! Ok, I know swoonyness isn't a word but it is now! Hee Hee. Lucas was a character that you don't want to judge to quickly. The first interactions and meetings with him and Charlotte were H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!!! It's been a while since I've been a teenager but this book brought back some of those moments and memories. The Good. The Bad. The Ugly. >.< I can't complain, I had more good than bad or ugly. But I'm grateful to have moved on from that time in life and all the uncertainties and ups and downs and emotions (ok, we still have all of that throughout life, just different than when you're a teenager). Definitely a fun book for teenagers and adults who will always been young at heart. Grab a copy, and enjoy while you're transported to Sweet Valley...er, ummm, scratch that...Sweet Water High! Content: Clean. Death of a parent is a topic that could be harder for some to read. Some kissing between the characters but nothing further. There is a scene where a character is in the bathtub and is walked in on by another character. Nothing was seen and it was written cleanly but just a heads up. I received a copy from the author. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own. Happy Reading!!!

    Wow, this book outdid itself when it comes to cliches. It has ALL OF THEM: - clumsy MC who of course looks plain compared to her BFF - the "accidentally bumped into the hot rich guy" scene - which of course, felt like bumping into a "brick wall" - he was "rude" at first, but he's actually soft and kind on the inside - they keep "accidentally" bumping and falling on each other -.- - the rich guys parents are thE WORST and they can't have their precious little boy dating a poor girl like her - oh yeah, Wow, this book outdid itself when it comes to cliches.

That sentence about different worlds appeared on every page. The MC just kept using the same lame argument and denied her feelings for the guy. It started to get annoying after the first 100 pages. It was obvious she liked him but nooo let's have another 100 pages of denial and angst. I can't help but mention a particular scene that completely baffled me. So the MC wears glasses (like me, so I speak from experience), and she went to the beach with her friends. They all went to jump off a pier or something, can't remember, anyways they were going to jump into the sea...and she didn't take off her glasses???? Like, why? How did they survive and not get lost in the sea? What even? Anyways, the book is ridiculous and reads like a bad fanfiction/ wish fulfillment. So why didn't I give it 1 star? Because...I didn't hate it. It was pretty bad, but I didn't get angry with it enough, if that makes sense XD I wouldn't recommend this if you're looking for a serious read, but if you like cringey rich guy - poor girl books, go for it :D

    Misunderstanding the Billionaire's Heir was a pretty cute read. The characters and everything in-between were just cute and adorable. I thought things were going to take a different turn but then the book just kept on being sweet. In it, you will meet Charlotte and Lucas. Of course these two had a rocky-ish start.. but I knew that they would instantly become a thing. What's the saying, "He picks on you because he likes you".. or something like that.

They have to lean on one another to get through everything but they did it in a cutesy way. Again, with the word cute but I can't say it any differently. Overall, this book was cute.

    (4.5 Stars) Oh, the angst is strong with this one and this author really has a knack for writing in this genre. I loved how the first impressions were not an example of true personality, as Lucas and Charlotte had to really open themselves up to each other in order to allow each other in. Things are definitely not always as they seem and that's case in point with these characters. Lucas is rich and comes across as an entitled spoiled brat. Thankfully, there's much more to his story and everythin (4.5 Stars) Oh, the angst is strong with this one and this author really has a knack for writing in this genre.

Things are definitely not always as they seem and that's case in point with these characters. Lucas is rich and comes across as an entitled spoiled brat. Thankfully, there's much more to his story and everything slowly unravels as the pages are turned, leaving the reader with a vulnerable character. Charlotte, too, has had an incredibly difficult recent past and in a effort to find her peace and place in life, unexpectedly finds more than she bargains for and must take risks to finally discover her happiness. The push and pull is so angsty, but really makes for a conflicted and engaging story. Meyer is able to accurately portray teenage fears and feelings, while managing to captive this adult reader (me). I loved the friendships, both young and old, and the budding romance invited butterflies to take up residence in my stomach. This book flashed me back to the past, especially with the SWEET VALLEY HIGH reference, and had me cheering and rooting for this new swoony series. I'm so excited to delve into more stories set in Sweet Water and to explore the inhabitants of this wonderful, small town. This set is off to a solid start!

    Very Cute I love the concept of this YA series with various authors all contributing with stories of young love and high school. This particular story had some depth and struggle to it which helped the characters feel more substantial without becoming too overwhelming. I think it was spot on for the intentions of this series. I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to more from this series. Content: kissing

    I’ve said it before: this (YA) genre is where the author’s talent excels. She definitely has a good grasp and voice for teen and YA audiences. This book was fun because it overlaps with some of the others in the series. It’s taken a different perspective and point of view of a story by other characters. It can be read alone but it also complements Maddie’s story. This is Charlotte’s (Maddie’s best friend’s) telling of the story.

    Great YA Romance! I loved this one- reading first person perspective really helped me get inside the protagonist, Charlotte’s, head. She is dealing with so much emotionally and into her life comes Lucas- and wow he was a fantastic swoon-worthy hero! There was some great romantic tension and toe-curling moments in this clean YA romance. I’m looking forward to more books in this series!

    This book was cute and super engaging ... until Charlotte and Lucas got together. Then they're kissing constantly, lying about their relationship, and professing their love incredibly quickly. I still enjoyed the book, but the last 25% wasn't my favorite. Also, there's a reference to a "spy" of Lucas's father's that I didn't understand, and his parents are, clearly, THE WORST. Still, it's a quick, clean (one mild swear word is all) read, and I did like it.

One thing I’m glad on was not being born rich because often times the rich have it way worse than the poor. You gotta look at even though this person may not have all the money in the world they are more 100% happier. Money isn’t everything. Charlotte showed Luke is the real meaning of life and to actually be a nice person and that everyone loves their family in a good way. Keith and their mother seem like evil people. No way; I would want someone to plan my life. When someone does that to their child that child will be 100% miserable or hateful in the long run. Because often times that’s not where they wanted to be. But I am glad Lucas found Charlotte in Sweet Water. Not for her; I think he would’ve had a horrible life. Plus I knew that he didn’t want Charlotte best friend Maggie I don’t understand how in the world both Charlotte mad Maggie didn’t see it. Plus, it’s understandable why her father didn’t move those cars but I am glad that Lucas helped in the end and Charlotte came to her senses about her wanting to be with Lucas. I was like girl you better forget what his father thinks; heck at least he the one that wants you.

    hmm didn't expect anything, really. it was okay. i just wished they explored more plot like charlotte's relationship with her dad and brother, charlotte's real feelings about her mom's death, lucas relationship with winny, lucas with her mom (a mention would be enough. but oh well. we can't, have all things. it's short, cute and sweet.

    This story was a great introduction to the series. Teen angst at its height. Teens from two broken families with complicated relationships are dislike at first sight. It's a classic enemies to lovers tale on the high school level. As always, the writing is solid, the romance sweet, and the emotions strong.

    This is another sweet, clean read from Anne-Marie Meyer. We learn that first impressions aren’t always right. In this book, we meet Charlotte and Lucas and they don’t get off on the right foot, at all, lol. Grab your copy and see what happens. This book is appropriate for all ages.

Charlotte Robinson’s future is in question. Since the passing of her mom she’s just trying to get by one day at a time. While her best friend Maddie and fellow classmates are looking forward to a great senior year and making plans for college, Char is desperately missing her mom and finding solace in her job at the bakery when she’s not babysitting her rambunctious 10 year old brother. If this was not enough, neighbors are starting to complain about her father's new hobby and yard that’s becoming a junkyard full of old cars and parts. Enter Lucas, a very wealthy, handsome, but temperamental young man who’s first meeting with Charlotte is anything but sweet. To make matters worse, Lucas just happens to be the grandson of her boss at the bakery, The Bread Basket. As much as Charlotte tries to avoid Lucas, events in the town of Sweet Water keep throwing the two together and soon a small flame begins to smolder between the both of them. As Char’s best friend Maddie develops a crush on Lucas and the truth about his appearance in Sweet Water comes to the surface, the beautiful romance that begins to develop between Lucas and Charlotte may be over before it starts. In light of all these events and more, only time will tell if their feelings can survive. This YA romance was so much fun. The characters were well developed and I was able to get a real sense of the small town of Sweet Water. I really liked Charlotte’s character the best. I could feel her loneliness for her mom and the love she had for her family and friends. She was loyal to a fault, even putting her own happiness on hold for those she held dear. It was delightful to watch Charlotte and Lucas grow as their relationship developed. All in all a very sweet romance that would please anyone. I enjoyed Misunderstanding The Billionaire's Heir by Anne-Marie Meyer and I am looking forward to additional books in the Sweet Water High Romance series.

    I thought this book would be better then it was. I didn’t really like the main characters. Charlotte drove me nuts with her thinking and wishy washy ways. I don’t understand why or how she came to liking Lucas so quickly. I understand the attraction but she did not even get to know him really. And he was hot and cold, bipolar basically throughout most of the book. He would be so rude to her and he said that they were acquaintances not friends and then he would be nice to her like nothing happene I thought this book would be better then it was.

He would be so rude to her and he said that they were acquaintances not friends and then he would be nice to her like nothing happened and she would just except that and acted like it was fine that he was a complete jerk. So I guess I just don’t understand the romance of the book and how they came to like each other because they did not really talk or spend time together and they just stared at each other. And then it was like they’re in love once they kissed it just didn’t make sense. I guess I just didn’t understand the timeline in their relationship because it did not seem like they had one at all besides getting angry at each other and then somewhat being nice. And then with her best friend she doesn’t talk to her about these feelings she’s had and I understand her not quite understanding them and that her mom passed away but she should easily be able to tell her friends that she’s not sure or confused about her feelings and not just flat out lie to her. It was really hard to read this book I skimmed some of it because it was just not keeping me intrigued. And even as I came to the end it wasn’t all that exciting.

    Sweet but a bit superficial This is a decently written (in style, the text needs more editing) and amusing YA read, for the most part, but I spent the better part of the book wondering how Lucas came to care for Charlotte. Honestly I thought the author might be planning on having it turn out that Lucas latched on to Char as a way to get back at his dad - except there was no triangle for someone else to end up with her if that happened.

Or that Char would think that was what Lucas was doing & that would be the boy-loses-girl part of the conflict that would be followed by a better explanation of the situation. It was pretty angsty & Char's not thinking clearly or reacting smart, but it's forgivable. We get hints of Lucas's issues, but I never fully got why he repeatedly acted like such a rude jerk to Charlotte. There's also no additional explanation of Lucas's conversation with his dad about the expectations for him after graduating. Despite my criticisms, I actually enjoyed reading it, but understand going in that it doesn't aspire to anything more than fluffy, forgettable amusement to distract you after a long day. Clean romance level: sweet kisses

    NO! Ugh! I was so excited to start this series. I had the time to read 1 a day and was just going to read them all in a week. I almost bought the whole series, but I am glad I didn't. My BIGGEST issue was how quickly the characters (view spoiler)[said I love you (hide spoiler)] . Lucas was barely there for a WEEK! And to that fact, if the progression of Charlotte's feelings and confusion was so scattered. She met him one day and then the next day her feelings for him changed like 5 times. It was j NO! Ugh!

It was just too unrealistic. Also, if I had to read Charlotte say her life was "complicated" one more time, I probably would have just stopped reading. Sure, her life was tough, but everyone is going through something. And she should know that. Clearly Lucas' life was "complicated" as well. It just seemed that she thought her life was SO much harder than anyone else's. There also didn't seem to be too much of a revolution with Lucas and his family. I know he said he was going to do what he wants, but it would be nice to actually see that. UGH! I'm so disappointed.

This book is a clean, sweet romance between high school seniors and some of the difficult life challenges they face and the feelings of love that they are beginning to experience. I was given an arc copy of this book and I offer my honest review willingly.

    It wasn't great Charlotte was all over the place. But really, she's just a young girl who needs some serious help. Her dad failed miserably by not getting some grief counseling for his family. This left Charlotte a hot mess. Lucas was also confusing because he was got and cold too. Mean, then sweet. There was so much going on, but there was absolutely no depth to this story. The relationship is ridiculously rushed. They are both too immature to handle the maturity of a relationship. Charlotte was It wasn't great Charlotte was all over the place.

And, my biggest peeve on this story was this: LUCAS DID NOT SPILL HIS COFFEE ON CHARLOTTE! She was looking at the ground when she ran into him, this causing his coffee to spill. Yet she kept saying he spilled it on her. If that is what the author is going for, she needed to write it as such.

    Quick cute read I've read other books in this series and thought I'd try them in order.

She's struggling with losing her mom and finishing up the summer before her senior year of high school. She works at the local bakery and a few short weeks before school she meets Lucas the grandson of her boss. He's been sent to stay with grandma because of mistakes made in NYC by his wealthy father. He seems very rude and snobby at first but as they get to know each other things change. The romance is a little rushed for my taste, but I get its a story so... I enjoyed it as a quick read.

I feel the two mc’s spoke less to each other then the length of this review, that’s how weird it was to read them saying ‘love’ like I genuinely feel Romeo and Juliet liked each other more and we both know they were idiots. Change love to like and want to date you and this wouldn’t have been a terrible novella (yeah because it’s hella short) but as it stands it’s just flat and unrealistic

    (2.5 stars) I wanted to love this book as I've loved some of the other Sweet Water ones, but I just couldn't. It didn't fully resonate with me and things just didn't flow as I'd imagined them to. Maybe my standards were set too high by my favourite (Falling for my Nemesis). To sum it up, the romance was quite rushed and unrealistic. A bit unbelievable in some scenes as others have pointed out (she jumps off a pier / swims with glasses on? ). Author uses the verb "studied" way too much to the poin (2.5 stars) I wanted to love this book as I've loved some of the other Sweet Water ones, but I just couldn't.

To sum it up, the romance was quite rushed and unrealistic. A bit unbelievable in some scenes as others have pointed out (she jumps off a pier / swims with glasses on? ). Author uses the verb "studied" way too much to the point where it got annoying (65 times according to my search, and that's not including variations like "studying"). Charlotte's character was a bit over the place, but I guess her immaturity could be attributed to her being a teenager. Overall I wouldn't really recommend reading this book unless you had a lot of time on your hands and wanted to complete reading all the Sweet Water series.

    This was a great book that I couldn't put down. I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. Charlotte was a teen that lost her mother too early. I loved getting a glimpse of her feelings and how she coped with the loss. It was interesting to see her father's grief through Charlotte's eyes. Lucas was a snobby, good-looking guy that just moved into town. I enjoyed watching the layers being peeled back on Lucas's character. Both Lucas and Charlotte had a lot of insecurities they had t This was a great book that I couldn't put down. I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next.

Both Lucas and Charlotte had a lot of insecurities they had to face and overcome. Overall, this was an enjoyable sweet high school romance. I recommend this clean read to those that like high school romance.

    I can't even. So these two teens know each other for less than a week, have limited interaction, half of their encounters are the dude being pissy at the chick because of crap with his dad, and I'm supposed to believe they love each other after less than a week? Really? I'm so torn. The author doesn't write bad, the words flow nicely, but the plot and actions of the characters where so unrealistic and just...dumb? If the events of the story unfolded over the course of at least a month I would be I can't even.

The character development, the plot, the backstory. No real tension.

    So to me, this love story is kind of a contradiction. I mean the love story is incredible and more grown up. The catfight is definitely high schoolish. The deep hurt in the book is definitely more than high school. Thinking about it now I had some seriously deep issues I was dealing with in high school myself, so maybe that's not entirely true. It was fast, sweet, and oh so yummy. Personally, I LOVED the pride and prejudice theme in the story and could have sworn I've read it before.

    It was cute and I really like Charlotte and Lucas. I didn't read the series in order so I knew about them from book 7 and I wanted to know more of them. So glad I did. However, I think that their relationship kind of went fast since it was only a week that passed and they were already saying those three words. I wasn't a big fan of Charlotte's best friend Maddie, she kind of annoyed me in the book but she got better at work.
