There is quite a bit of swearing in this book. They say h*ll, d*amn, and s*it at least a dozen times each. F**k is used twice. The main characters kiss and fantasize about one another. In his basement they lay down and kiss but she pushes him off before anything else happens. Characters get in fights, including one where he gets really beat up. I loved the book and I recommend it to everyone who loves to read and is looking for a challenge.
