Synopsis

All alone in a new state, Brennan Daniels has only the memories of her best friend, Reagan, to keep her company as she starts college.

Reagan is the reason for everything Brennan does—before she died, she made Brennan promise to stay good until she found a man worth keeping. No boys, no dating, and definitely no falling in love—those were the rules for college, and Brennan carved them into the brick walls guarding her heart…

But there’s a fire burning behind those walls, and when Brennan meets Owen Scott, the (mysterious) new guy across the hall, she can’t deny the pull between them. He is everything she should never want. Everyone warns her to stay away—even Owen himself—but the heart wants what the heart wants, even if it knows that it’s going to get hurt—even if it means throwing old promises to new flames…

Excerpt

 

“What are you doing?” I asked under my breath.

“Watching you sleep.”

I giggled nervously. It was a strange feeling, knowing that he was staring at me. Before, I would’ve found this weird, maybe a little creepy, but right now I found it incredibly sexy. And utterly embarrassing.

“Did you know that you wrinkle your nose in your sleep?” Owen asked. “It’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”

My face was on fire now. I groaned, tucking my head into his side. My body vibrated as he chuckled next to me. It was hands down, the sweetest thing I had ever heard. I draped my arm across his stomach and squeezed him.

“What time is it?”

“A little after two,” Owen answered.

I moved my head back and looked into his eyes. “Have you even slept yet?”

“Why sleep when I can spend that time staring at you,” he said softly. He pressed his lips against my eyebrow. “Have I told you how lucky I am?”

“I don’t think so.”

“Well, I am. I don’t know what I did to deserve you, Brennan Grace Daniels, but I will do anything to keep you here. Forever in my arms.”

I blushed, hoping he couldn’t see my rosy cheeks in the dark. “I’d like that.”

“Yeah?” he responded. “Me too.”

Laurie 3 stars

The blurb on this one caught my attention, and I was super excited to read! Unfortunately, this ended up being only 3 stars for me. Let me start off with what I really enjoyed about this book. The story line was great. Brennan is a freshman in college who has suffered through a horrible tragedy. She owes it to her best friend to make the most of her college years. Brennan promised her best friend Reagan that she would find a guy worth keeping. She ends up meeting Owen who is a total man whore and not who Reagan would want her to end up with. Owen is cocky, funny, and I loved that about him. Where the story fell flat for me was Brennan’s character and the interaction between Brennan and Owen. They just didn’t connect for me. I felt that their relationship was forced and didn’t really flow well.

Will I read anything by Brandy Jellum again? I will because I think she’s a good writer with great ideas, the characters in this book just fell flat for me.

About The Author
Brandy

Brandy’s passion for writing began long before she actually sat down to write. As a child, she has had an obsession with reading, everything from the classic stories by Jane Austen to YA Fiction by Richelle Mead. Finally, in 2012, she decided to create her own stories for people to fall in love with. Brandy bounces back and forth writing both Romance and Young Adult Fiction (which is mainly just for fun).

At the beginning of 2014, Brandy signed a contract with publishing company Booktrope. She is very excited about the next chapter of her life and cannot wait to share her books and passion with readers.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found chasing after her husband, her four children and her black lab, Diesel. Or curled up on her favorite corner of the couch with her newest book.
