They say there's a thin line between love and hate. This is what happens when that line is crossed.
College freshman Olivia Montgomery is thrilled at the chance to start over, escape the rumors that plagued her in high school. And she can finally put her juvenile crush, Zachary Pearson, where he belongs - in her past. Then her unrequited love strolls into her French class, shattering Olivia's newfound peace, and the feelings she'd thought buried for good come rushing back. Now she can't shake her unwanted attraction to the one guy who can twist her stomach into knots with just a smile...but has never given her the time of day.
Zach's good looks may have always gotten him his pick of girls, but it's the star quarterback's skill on the football field that gives him his pick of the Big Ten colleges. To escape the crushing demands of his win-at-all-costs father, Zach opts for a private university in upstate New York where...his present and past collide. And the one girl he's always wanted but can't have - and a class trip to Paris - turn out to be the ultimate game changer that has him breaking every one of his rules.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
The plot line is fast paced & a bit predictable, but the characters are so engaging that I was hooked the entire way through. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the new adult genre. This story is told from both Olivia & Zach’s POV. It was romantic, sweet and sexy. Olivia Montgomery is ready to begin a new chapter of her life and get away from the pettiness of high school. She’s ready to move on and forget about everyone including her high school crush, Zachary Pearson. So, she convinced she's dreaming when Zach walks into her French class, unfortunately, it becomes a reality of epic proportions. Zach was also shocked to discovery that Olivia, the girl he had avoided for personal reasons unknown to her, was going to ensure four more years of torture for him. He was not only incredibly attracted to her, more than just physically, he felt drawn to her like a moth to a flame. A school trip to Paris changes everything between them. The romance was steamy. These two had four years of pent of longing that absolutely exploded when the finally got together. You might need to fan your face a bit. But, they were also sweet together. I absolutely loved the journey these two take to be together. It’s a long & curvy road filled with ups, downs, speed bumps and quite a few pot holes. It was hard not to enjoy this story as both characters are extremely engaging. Despite that, they both have some family issues and life issues. I can say that Zach was a bit of a arrogant, annoying, stuck up bad boy in the start but as the book took life the author show his sweeter side and just exactly which type of guy he can really be. Overall, the story challenges the idea of holding fast to preconceived misconceptions, particularly in the name of self preservation, and how that can damage relationships and mistrust. This book had the right amount of romance, witt, angst, and steam. ENJOY!
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
THE NARRATOR ERIN MALLON IS QUICKLY BECOMING ONE OF MY TOP NARRATORS. THEREFORE, IT WAS AN EASY LISTEN. THIS AUDIO WAS TOLD IN BOTH OLIVIA AND ZACH'S POV.
OLIVIA MONTGOMERY IS SURPRISED WHEN SHE RUNS INTO AN OLD CLASSMATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL, SOMEONE SHE CRUSHED ON ALMOST ALL 4 YEARS. ZACH PEARSON.
WHAT WOULD BE THE CHANCE THEY BOTH ATTEND THE SAME COLLEGE, SINCE HE WAS A STAR FOOTBALL PLAYER, BUT AS SHE GETS REINTRODUCED TO ZACH IN A WAY THAT SHE WISHED HE WOULD HAVE TREATED HER IN HIGH SCHOOL WAS TOTALLY UNSUSPECTED.
ZACH WAS TOLD TO STAY AWAY FROM THAT MONTGOMERY GIRL BECAUSE OF THE PAST WITH HER MOTHER. HE NEVER REALLY HAD ANYTHING AGAINST HER, BUT TO ASSOCIATE WITH THE "ENEMY" WAS NOT TOLERATED.
OLIVIA STILL COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHY ZACH ALWAYS RAN HOT AND COLD, BUT NOW THAT THEY WERE IN COLLEGE AND HAVING A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO PARIS TOGETHER AS PART OF A CLASS ASSIGNMENT, BRINGS THEM TOGETHER AS FRIENDS, POSSIBLY MORE.
THIS IS NEW ADULT, I LOVE COLLEGE AGE KIDS FINDING ROMANCE. IT WAS SWEET, SEXY AND AGAIN VERY ROMANTIC.
excellent book. I say definitely worth the read. I grade my book from: omg I can't get through this book to cool I got through this book with very little effort to this book was excellent And worth reading to this book was amazeballz and I should buy a physical copy.
Well it's 2014 & since 2010 I've listened to over 600 books - I'm a confectionary artist of Just Get Baked & audible helps my every day!
This was a cute read...err...listen! I always like the stories that have that "open your eyes" moments after highschool hell. We've all had that one person from school, old job or somewhere that you just wish you could find out what their problem was and what better than someone that you had a crush on! Very cute, of course there are a few moments that I was screaming...just say why!!!....and they don't which urked me, BUT I kept on listening and was pleased. Can't wait for the second one to come out in Feb!
