Young New York socialite Caroline falls for a rock star bad boy Logan Clay, he's bad for her and she's bad for him (he has a fiancée after all). Against all reason and sanity, they know they belong together, but how can they make it work when time and fate seem to be completely against them? She was ready for love when he wasn't, but she moves on only to find that real love can't be replaced. Happy endings might not be for everyone...
I had my doubts for Sand and Clay after I reached a certain point in the book. I hated the direction of the book and Logan. He wasn't willing to sacrifice something that he claimed "not to like" to get what he trully wanted. Caroline and Logan had similar personalities and both loved the same thing. A little contrast between the 2 characters would be so much better. They acted in almost the same way on two different cases. Her parents weren't that bad. Honestly I thought the worst of her on page 1 when she shared some things about herself because she seemed little a spoiled little girl.
The book is not going to be liked by everyone who reads it. If you are thinking of reading Sand and Clay I have to inform you that there is cheating on the book (Note that even a kiss is considered cheating). As the blurb says "Logan has a fiancée after all" but he is attracted to Caroline. And then is Carolines time to find someone " she moves on only to find that real love can't be replaced" so you can imagine what happens.
To be fair the book had some good parts too. I liked the end when the author didn't reveal what who was Caroline going to choose and could make the reader doubt if Caroline was going to get her happily ever after.
