Genre: New Adult Romance
It might sound ridiculous. I get it. It kind of is, but college was supposed to be my sanctuary. It was my place to start over. The rumors, the whispers, and the jealousy I endured through high school would all be gone.
No one would know me at college.
Rule #2: No drama.
I’d major in pre-law. I’d make a few loyal friends. Everything would be easy breezy. No one was going to use me or hurt me. I wouldn’t let them.
Rule #3: New year. New place. New me.
And all because of Shay Coleman.
Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight . . .
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review.
When you think of Tijan, you think angst and pissed off heroines. For me, this book was exactly what I hoped for based on the fact that our heroine does not back down and stands up for what she wants. She's exactly the kind of character that only Tijan can do justice.
Kennedy Clarke wants to go pre-law and completely ignore the male race in her first year of college. Shay Coleman wants to break down all of Kennedy's walls and slither his way in. What starts as a little study break could mean so much more for the standoffish freshman and the university's football star.
He was love by so many.
He was wanted by so many.
He confided in no one.
As always, Tijan's writing pulls you in and you cannot close her books until you hit that last page. I absolutely loved Kennedy and her character development. I know this book is just a stand alone, but I'm hoping for a second book (PLEASE TIJAN). Read this book and let me know what you thought about it!
Overall, I'm giving this book 4.5 STARS out of 5.0 STARS.
