Product Description

“She’s everything I’m not and everything I want to be.”

Sebastian Iron’s life is spiraling out of control. Over the course of one week, Sebastian witnesses death, runs away with his best friend’s girl, gets kicked out of his English prep school, and is banished to America by his domineering mother to repeat his senior year of high school.

In America, Sebastian struggles to find self-discipline and a purpose to turn his life around. He meets Tess Hamilton, the only person to show him any kindness in his new school. Little does he know, she is the savior tutor hired by his mother to help him improve his grades. The two slowly begin to build a friendship.

As their friendship blossoms, Sebastian begins to have romantic feelings for Tess. She claims to only want a platonic relationship, but Sebastian feels the undeniable spark that sizzles between them every time they are together.

Forces beyond their control will either bring Sebastian and Tess closer together or tear them apart.

Will Sebastian return to his old habits or find the strength to be the person worthy of Tess’ love?

**16+ due to sexual situations, language and drug use. Romance Series, New Adult Saga

5.0 out of 5 stars FunkyIrishBookworms - Maggie's Review 29 July 2014

FunkyIrishBookworm Review!

Maggie's Review

Ok, so I liked this book, it was fun, peppy and had a cute British dude with a sexy accent. What more could a girl ask for? *giggle*

It started off kind of slow, and I was expecting it to drag something horrible because of the slow starting, but I was wrong, it picked up speed and did so quite nicely.

Sebastian, our British dude with the sexy accent, is what everyone identifies as a typical rebelling teenager out to make his mother's life a misery. On his journey to do that life kicks him in the teeth and leaves poor Sebastian feeling completely out of control. His mother demands that he get his act together and throws him to the wolves, so to speak. With little choice but to listen to her, Sebastian sets out to get his out of control life back under control, with the help of his surrogate mother Nanny, and a gorgeous American tutor who is quickly worming her way into Sebastian's love starved heart.

We get to see the ups and downs of new love, insecurities, the joys of self discovery and the pains and heartache of loss.

A brilliant read! 5*****

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Lovely! 9 July 2014
By JewelsMH - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition

This story makes me want to go back to senior year of high school again....only though if I can meet a guy like Sebastian!!!! The storyline is even set in the 80s...when I was in it felt like taking a trip back in time.....oh, the memories.

Sebastian, who is from England, is a bit lost in life. Life has given him too much to choose from and not enough "guidance." The world is his toy, so to speak. Tess, in America, is a very grounded senior in high school. She has been limited by life's circumstances, but, she has goals and is determined on her journey.

Paths throws in a few speed is just not a 4 letter word..........

Will Sebastian and Tess be able to take what has been mixed into their intwining lives and make something out of it?

Must read to find out!

Absolutely lovely story....I don't want to give to much away as I hope others will read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome read 29 July 2014
By Ravannah Rayne - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had the pleasure of reading Life’s What You Make It by Theresa Troutman and loved every minute of it. The book follows main character Sebastian who is one messed up teen that finds himself in a world wind of screw-ups and eventually is sent to redo his last year of high school in America. There he meets the Tess unknowingly to him will be his tutor so after falling for her things become a bit more difficult. Are they destined to be together or is she telling the truth when she says that she has no feelings for him? When circumstances happen only time will tell if they are meant to be or if they will go their separate ways. I will not give out more information on the book because I do not like giving spoilers but I will say that the romance, twists and plots of this book was well written and cannot wait to read more from this amazing author. The best thing about this book is that it can be read and enjoyed by readers of all ages ranging from YA to adults. Five stars from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars as the story goes along you see his love for Nanny and his personal growth 12 September 2014
By Everything Marie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sebastian has led a life of privilege. In the beginning he comes off as a spoiled rich kid. However, as the story goes along you see his love for Nanny and his personal growth. It becomes very hard not to like him.
Tess is a straight laced sweet girl with goals and dreams. She works very hard to reach those goals. Having faced loss in her own past she is able to help Sebastian through a rough time.
Sebastian and Tess are wonderful together. They bring out the best in each other. Sebastian helps Tess let go and Tess keeps him more grounded. Looking forward to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A adventure I wanted to stay on! 16 July 2014
By Kris - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was gifted this book with no obligation to give a review :) So on that note....

I really enjoyed this book. It was very different than what I normally read. It's great to know Sebastian and Tess. The character development was nice and was a easy read that flows. Had a good solid story line that kept me reading until the end. I'm quite curious what the next adventure will be in this series.
