Ivy McAllister had it all. Perfect boyfriend. Perfect life. Perfect future. Or so they tell her. Because one night, on a dark country road, a fiery crash changed everything…and Ivy can’t remember what happened.
Now, two years later, at a new college far from home, she tries to regain control of her life, but her plans don’t include a tattooed, motorcycle-riding, indie music-obsessed guy with his own sorority girl fan club.
Jon Priestly is the hottest guy at Pacific State University. Just ask his groupies. But with a dark past he must keep hidden, he shuts himself off emotionally and trusts no one. That is…until he meets a broken girl with haunting green eyes and secrets of her own.
Ivy shouldn’t be attracted to Jon. They’re wrong for each other in every possible way. Yet as they spend time together, something about him—everything about him—feels so right.
But when threats from her past make her question what little she does remember, Ivy must decide whether to run again or trust the one person she can’t live without.
I really enjoyed this read! It had the perfect balance of what I look for in a read. Romance, drama, a bit of sizzle, a misunderstood guy and growth in life and love.
This read captured my attention and had me interested and invested in the two main characters lives.
Jon is the misunderstand “bad boy” and Ivy ( love this name) as the girl who just wants to focus on school and does not want anyone complicating that. Well enter Jon and that makes Ivy’s life and goals flip.
The characters have nice chemistry and are real. They are going through realistic issues and I like that! I wanted and enjoyed being on their journey with them.
There are some interesting elements that come into play that add to the story. I liked how the author didn’t give anything away to quickly – it felt realistic the pace she lead us on.
The secondary characters were fun too! I wish there had been a bit more with Cassidy and Touch- I felt like I was left hanging there.
Overall a great read!
