A girl with rules.
One night of unbridled passion.
There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: she’s smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She’s learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end.
But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex. A tattooed British street fighter, he’s the campus bad boy she’s supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window. She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more. With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
REVIEW: Okay so I was stoked to read this only because I love a bad boy fighter story…you can thank Jamie McGuire and Travis Maddox for that! College and underground fighting is all these two books have in common.
This story sucks you in from the beginning and makes you wanna gauge out some eyeballs, so I knew right then this was gonna be a good book. Elizabeth is cute and quirky and I liked her as our heroine especially when she starts rambling. You feel for her from the start and as she flashes back to the past it reveals more of why she has such an affinity for control.
Declan is hot and British…is there any other explanation needed? Nope, at least not in my book, however, I will give you more. I love him! He knows what he wants and who he is and doesn’t make any excuses for it. He sees right through Elizabeth and doesn’t let her get away with the BS she gives to everyone else. He sees her scars and all. I mean come on ladies he’s an English major that loves all the classics. Can you say swoon. Oh did I mention he has a twin?? Yeah that is my spoiler for ya!
It was cool to see that our leads had a few things in common one being a$$hole parents. Some of the things they do are just disgusting. The supporting characters also play such a major role in making this story as good as it is. They aren’t there as background noise but actually help build this story and push it along. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I plan to read more!! So 4.5 stars for this book…enjoy
