That's me - Tingly Simmons - athlete, foreign-language major, professor lover, obsessed idiot girl. Definitely not a frat rat or sorority slut. I've never ever played beer pong.
I ditched the vapid, soulless high-society life of Los Angeles for the promise of something more meaningful in rural Ohio. Accepting a track scholarship for college, I tried running my way to happiness, but instead I ended up sleeping with my French professor and falling head over heels for him.
When that relationship fell apart so did I.
Barely hanging on by a thread and using the most absurd coping skills, I was determined to hide behind my past indiscretions. That was, until I met Tiberius Jones.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd learn the truth about love from a six-foot-five basketball player.

I loved this book when it came out and I love it even more listening to it on audio. The narrator did a really good job bringing the characters to life for me. This is one I will listen to over and over.
I loved Tiberius !
He was a great hero. He perused Tingly from the start, and just a conquest, he was interested in a true relationship with her.
He always stood by Tingly .
He never let her past derail him from his goal of having her.
Tingly was the jaded un trusting one in the relationship and liked that. She had to learn to trust him and his feelings for her.
He apologized when necessary, he didn't let his friends get away with anything. He acted like any true man should act.
People accuse Romance of setting un reasonable expectations, I don't see it that way. I think most people are decent and should act like him. Tiberius should be the norm.
I enjoyed Tingly's character. Yes she was thought, but she had to be. She made mistakes in the past, but she was the one who had to forgive herself and move on.
I loved the chemistry and interactions between T& T.
I was moved by Tiberius after his mother's death. The way he talked about her and his loss was heartbreaking.
Vérité is a wonderful story about two people from different backgrounds who find the courage to love despite their differences.
T&T are both strong characters who you admire all through the book.
Thier HEA was well deserved.
