I hate writing bad reviews because I know that someone out there is absolutely loving what I just said I disliked. So when I write reviews, I try to be remember exactly that. But there are sometimes where I just have to say that I did not like a story at all.
This story began with promise. Caden the hot alpha protector of the story showed that he could be the male we all desire in a book boyfriend. Hot, mysterious and confident with the promise of a night to remember.
Summer; the female protagonist was not too bad to begin with either. She starts out a bit innocent and shy and has a severe crush on her fellow classmate turned step-brother. She has the promise of possible character development but what seems to happen with her is cringe worthy and awkward.
I am not going to go into too much detail as to the rest of the story as I feel I should leave that up to the reader for judgement. I know that there are many fans of Tijan’s stories and that many absolutely loved this book. The bummer thing is, this was my first go at reading her works and I am unsure of whether to try out her books again or not. Who knows, maybe this one just didn’t do it for me.
What I would like to do is recommend some other fun college reads that I have loved and recommend that you give those a try. And, if after reading the excerpt from this book you feel the urge to read it, I highly recommend you do. I would love to hear your thoughts on why or why not you liked this book.
Here are a few of my favs:

Those are just a few favorites, I have a gazillion more! Over the next couple of weeks I am going to start adding some content for book recommendations so watch for those!
