Jacqueline followed her boyfriend to his college instead of going where she wanted. She thought they were forever. Instead, she gets dumped. Shortly thereafter, she nearly gets raped. Her savior is Lucas who beat her would-be rapist before things got too hairy. When she points him out to her friends, they think he will be her perfect bad boy rebound. Jacqueline isn't so sure, she is sure that she's sick of her attacker following her around. It seems like Jacqueline can't stop running into Lucas either, but maybe she doesn't want to.

So this is my first New Adult novel (this is New Adult right?). It seemed like a YA novel just with steamier college moments. I enjoyed it. It's nice to read something with protagonists closer to my age. I thought this was a good romance-y type novel and will definitely read other books by Tammara Webber.

Lucas, Lucas, Lucas. He is a yummy bad boy. He's not even that much of a bad boy. He's mostly just tattooed and has a bit of a rough life. He's really just a nice guy who puts on a bad boy exterior. He's smart and charming and secretive. He was a really great love interest.

Jacqueline wasn't a terrible character... I didn't care much for her at times, but other times I was proud of her. She had some rough things happen to her and I appreciate that in some aspects she didn't just dwell on them. She actually just ignored them, which is where I was a bit frustrated. Sometimes it can be hard to know what to do right after something happens, but it seems like she could have made some better choices. In the end she mostly redeemed herself so that made me happy.

There were some super steamy moments in this. I feel like this is Forever by Judy Blume for this generation. It goes much more into detail about Jacqueline's feelings (physical and emotional) and it shows how sometimes a sure thing, isn't.

I think this would be a great read for older high school kids. For some of them it might even make them reconsider giving up their hopes and dreams for an iffy relationship. It will also show that what a great guy you can find if you dig a little. Definitely check this out if you're looking to try a New Adult book or just want something a bit steamier than regular YA.

First Line:
"I had never noticed Lucas before that night."

Favorite Line:
"My last coherent thought, as Lucas took his time kissing and touching every part of me he could reach and my body was arched into his, was oh... so this is what all the fuss is about."
