Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.
When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.
Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationship's never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.
But can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? Or will they have to learn how to breathe again?

Reasons why you should read this book:
(a) Starstrukk factor. Hello? Ever heard or watch it?
(b) The guy's a rocker who's 6"2"! What is Dimitri's height(from Vampire Academy) anyway?
So basically, Sadie is the grown-up here. She took care of EVERYTHING. Food, job, you name it.Then sweet Jax came and somehow made her life more bearable if it's not easier. The guy is such a romantic. I'm so glad that I don't have to read about bad boys this time. I'm intoxicated with the swoon-ness of it all. Need to take a break ;). That is, until he decided to disappear.
Sweet Marcus was there all along but poor him, he doesn't have any chance of winning Sadie. He's there when she needed him most and I gave him credit for that.
But I couldn't help but notice it went a little too New Moon-ish. I mean Jax disappear to punish himself on something he couldn't help and Marcus was there to soothe Sadie. It's like Jax's Edward and Marcus's Jacob. For the ones who read this, do you feel the same or is it just me?
With all the Because of Low tour going on, I decided to take a peek in Abbi's debut novel. I can say this: It's definitely not a disappointment. And I'm so excited for Because of Low 'cause it's from Marcus's POV!
