I loved the storyline. The hot, bad boy hero who is sexy yet sweet and caring. This is a wonderful love story. It is a bit deeper than the usual romance novels which is something I loved about this book. This book pulls at your heartstrings and will make you want to find a man like Lucas and never let him go.
This was a really good story with very realistic incidents. The characters were believable and lovable, especially Lucas.
I love romance novels and need to have stories that focus on a romance, and this one did, it just wasn't as prominent. However, I also love stories about family and self discovery. In this story, Jacqueline discovered herself for who she really is, not who she became with her ex-boyfriend and all his frat boy friends. It took a lot of work and some major incidents for her come into her own but she did.
And during all of this she has a crush on a bad boy with his own issues. And even though his growth his not as much as hers, Jacqueline gets him to a place where he can even try to think about healing. These two broken young adults help each other and love each other. They're so good for one another.
I really enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys love and healing.
In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
Lovers of new adult romances will definitely want to check this out! (Yes, this is a new adult book, by the way. It’s about college students, should you want to know. The plot description above is kind of nonexistent.)
Be warned that this opens with a realistic portrayal of an attempted rape on a college campus. It’s not gory, but it’s uncomfortable to hear. It’s also central to the plot; our heroine needs to deal with all the jumbled emotions and whispered rumors that come from the attack, and from the fact that the attacker is still at large. I thought this was all very well done by the author. She’s got a sensitive eye for the subtleties in her character’s lives. Life is messy, and traumatic events are an added curve ball. The main character is a survivor though, well worth cheering through to the end.
But that’s not what makes this book so good. I loved the characters! And the ones I didn’t love were a lot like some people I remember from my own college experiences.
And the romance? Well worth the price of admission! Lucas has some demons of his own to work past, and is way up on my “good characters” list. Jacqueline and Lucas’s love story is sweet, sensitive, and just down right yummy. ;) I found myself making time to listen to this one.
Good writing, yummy romance, cheer-worthy heroine... New adult romance trifecta! Nice narration too. If this is your genre, highly recommended!
Loved it! In my top 20 audiobooks.
Not sure, it's a unique cute story.
I liked her but not loved her. She definitely wasn't a first choice narrator for me.
I felt like I was right there experiencing everything. Loved that!
Absolutely love to read, anything! Well maybe not Western or biographies but other than that anything. Dystopian is quickly becoming my fav!
I loved this book! The story is different and touching and very realistic. The characters are amazing and I hope there is a sequel to this one.
I AM NEWLY ADDICTED TO AUDIO-BOOKS. I GOT THIS ACCOUNT LAST YEAR AND ALREADY HAVE 93 BOOKS IN MY LIBRARY. IT'S AWESOME...
I LOVED THIS BOOK. I LIKE THAT IT ACTUALLY HAS A PLOT!!! AND A GOOD ONE AT THAT...I THOUGHT LUCAS WAS A VERY INTRUIGING CHARACTER. I WAS DONE WITH IT IN 2 DAYS.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
heart breaking, tragic, strong
The way the real life topic was dealt with. She wrote about it were you get a clear picture but not were it would scare you for life if that makes sense.
Jackie's roommate made me lol plenty of times.
The very ending, which I can not go into details about cause it would just spoil the whole book.
This is a book any young or new adult woman should listen to just for the fact that it can teach you a thing or two on how to protect your self. It's not a book I think one would read/listen to more then once however. I mainly read to escape real life and it's problems but this is so real life and dealt with things a woman can be faced with that I just had to listen/read it at least once in my life. It is a story that will stick with you and who knows it may even come in handy with what you can learn from it.
This one of my new favorite books,didn't want it to end! loved that Lucas and Jacqueline found strength in each other at the same time finding strength in themselves.
Absolutely! Good stories are even better the second time around! Listened to this book in one day. Excellent narrator and story. Pleasantly touches upon difficult topics, enhancing the story and relationships. Brings back college memories.
Not able to write here.
Yes, could not put it down.
The narrator had the perfect tone for a college aged student. She did a wonderful job with differentiating between the characters.
Young adult book, but easy and addicting listen.
