Andie had a horrible childhood thanks to an abusive father and an unreliable big brother, causing her to swear off assholes. Due to her past, she finds reasons to believe every man is an asshole, especially her new neighbor.
Lucas quit his womanizing ways cold turkey when he stepped up to help his sister. Between school and his sense of duty to his family, he doesn’t believe he has time for a relationship. Can these two college students sort out their pasts and find love with each other?
It took me a few chapters to get into this book, but once I did, I was so glad I didn’t give up. The drama was definitely there, but thanks to the dual POV, I was never left completely stressed out about what would happen. I really enjoyed this story; especially Andie’s growth, which was perfectly paced. If you are looking for a naughty college romance with substance, I’m confident you will enjoy it too.
