Jase, numb from his own family drama, has grown bored with weekends fueled by nameless girls and countless bottles when he meets Avery. Helping her cope with her past is better than dealing with the bullshit his own life’s served up. Determined to drive away the painful secret she’s guarding, he appoints himself her life coach, and challenges her to new experiences. Getting close to her and being the one to make her smile are simply perks of the job.
But when Avery’s past boldly saunters in, refusing to be forgotten, can Jase live with the truth about the girl he’s fallen for?
I have to say, this one wasn't my favorite from this author. I am a fan of Kendall Ryan and I think this is the lowest I have rated any of her books. With that said, it was still a great book and I won't hesitate to buy the next one.
So, Avery decides to head off to a college far from home where hardly anyone else from her high school class goes. (It's a good thing there is only 1 person there from her HS because she nearly has a shit hemorrhage when she sees that one girl.) Apparently she has some big secret that she doesn't want getting out because it's humiliating.
Anyway, enter Jace. The man whore of the campus. He's a been there, done that kind of guy, but there is something about Avery that draws him in. They start off with an amazing friendship and love blooms from there.
Next thing we know, his cunt of an ex has let the cat out of the bag. Avery's secret is out and Jace is hurt. I have to say, while the secret is slightly humiliating, it's not that big of a deal. I mean, come on, it's beginning to become a normal thing in society. Hell, even celebrities are doing it. Embrace your inner slut!
Anyway, I just kind of felt like it was anticlimactic and missing something for me. I felt a little connection with the H/h but something was not there. Or maybe this kind of thing has just been done to death.
