Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape -before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor's son, Trey Chapman.
No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can't stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can't help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.
A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make-out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey's politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.
Note: Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this audiobook is recommended for ages 16+.

Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
I listened to this audiobook- and 1st wanted to comment that the narrator did a very good job portraying both Monica and Trey.
Monica Remy is a ultra liberal/pro-woman. Now this is prob my first story that was about politics, and as I prob wont read another politic book again, this was still a great book. It had important issues such as rape/fraternity's/morning after-pills, and dealing with emotional side of being raped.
Monica Remy transfers from one college to the next because facing her accuser wasn't what she wanted to do, she wanted to start her life over, and still finish her degree. She so happens to move in the same apartment is the Illinois governor's son Trey Chapman. Even thou Trey Chapman is the governors son, he still has the same beliefs as his dad's which goes all against Monica's liberal views.
Most of the beginning of the book has them bantering about there political views, but they quickly develop a chemistry. What I do enjoy about the book as when comes the sex part, she completed a role reverse. Where the woman is the experienced one while Trey was the virgin. I was JUMPING for joy when things did pick up the pace, I was cheering for Monica when it does happen...
“He kissed me with a fire like no other, as if he were afraid breaking the kiss would break us.”
The ending was a little rushed, but I was glad that she was able to face her accuser and everyone else that was that was involved. Trey was truly her Only Exception.
Magan is fantastic writer, and it shows when she puts the details and flows her words together, this is the 2nd book I've read of hers and will continue to read the rest of the series.
The Only Exception is the story of Monica, a liberal college student studying political science, and Trey, the conservative governor's son who lives next door. At first there is tension between the two but as time goes on, Monica and Trey learn to like each other despite their opposing political views.
The Only Exception also tackles the difficult subject of sexual assault and the availability of affordable contraception. I think Ms. Vernon does a wonderful job of informing the reader about this without it being overly one sided. Ms. Vernon clearly shows both sides of the debate and as a reader I appreciated this.
Ms. Spencer did a wonderful job of expressing the emotions that both Monica and Trey were feeling as they discussed and debated the situation. I look forward to listening to more of Ms. Spencer's work.
I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy New Adult books, political discussions and romance. I do agree that this is a book for those are 16+ y/o. It does get a little steamy at some points. All in all, a great book that I will listen to again.
I really enjoyed this book and the plot was a little different and unique. It tackled a hard subject but it was also funny, and clever and just very well-written. You don't have to be into politics to like it - I think, I am into politics so maybe I'm wrong - and it's just a great book. I recommend this audiobook.
