Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt. Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

I enjoy Jamie McGuire books. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

PS at the end, I’m not sure how the nurse ended up at the pound where Camille car was towed but a good book never the less. 👀

The book would have been good if I was reading but the male narrator in this book sucked. He should be reading mystery’s or children’s books.

I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

The narration of the book was misleading.
It was suppose to be a male and female voice.
It was a female voice for 99.9% of the narration of the book. Literally the last 10 mins of the story the male voice finally came in. Who dose that?!!!!
I thought that was odd.
The book it self was pretty good. I would recommend unless you like the male and female narration.

Jake Weston and I met under a cloud of cliches: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy screws girl. He was the sexiest, cockiest man I'd ever encountered, but I had no idea he was a senior pilot when we met. No idea we worked for the same airline, and he had secrets just like me.

Books talk about sparks flying. F--k that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. Only one problem: She wouldn't tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest f--king night of my life. Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy - the sweetest, rarest of all pussy - and I need it again. So what's an asshole to do? I took this problem to the street, a missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

The story and performances are very good.
Since they raised the prices for the audio listening the series is expensive.
If you just get the kindle version it is a great read so far.

The story was slow and all over the place. The story was a little disconnect and confusing.
The narrator was reading so fast with very little inflection which made it a little boring.
I almost stopped listening, but I stuck it out.

Spoiler alert. Just one part was to unrealistic for me. It doesn't take weeks let alone a week to find out if you are pregnant or not. They know in the same day if not the next. I'm sure other women reading this were chomping at the bit like me over this.
I really like this series so far. I am about to download the final book. Yeah!
