Publisher's Summary

Ballerina Dovey Beckham is a scholarship student at Briarwood, determined to prove that she's more than just a girl with the wrong pedigree. She does whatever it takes to succeed, even if that means surrendering her body - but she will never surrender her heart.

Until the day she meets him and he rips apart all her well-laid plans. Suddenly, the girl everyone thought was unbreakable might just shatter.

Cuba "Hollywood" Hudson is rich, spoiled, and a star football player. With his fast cars and superficial girlfriends, he lives the high-life, hiding his secrets from the world.

Until the day he meets her, and she offers him something he's never tasted: love.

But once-in-a-lifetime kind of love doesn't come easy. When trust crumbles and doubts creep in, both will have to decide to either love or let go forever.

Can’t believe I listened to the whole thing

I’m pretty easy to please with audiobooks. I don’t think too deeply about them, I just enjoy listening while I work around the house and run errands. As such, this is the first critical review I’ve made. I loved the 1st book in this series, but the male narrator for this book was boring and does not annunciate words correctly. For instance kitten would be pronounced “ki-en”, mitten would be “mi-en”. Drove me nuts. There wasn’t a strong enough story line to make me glad I finished the book. I’m hoping the 3rd book will be worthwhile.

Weird narration

The male narrator seemed to switch from talking right close to the mic to far away. I don't know if it was the narrator or the production of it. The female narration was fine.

I really did like this a bit more than the first in the series. This one can stand alone and just overlaps the first as far as characters. There is something this novel doesn't conclude with a different character but no true cliffhanger.
