Summary: The most valuable lesson Emerson Moore ever learned was from her parents: Never get too attached to someone else. That’s why this hard-partying college student plays by her own code of bedroom conduct, refusing to stay with the same guy for too long. She gets all the pleasure of having a good time without the messiness of a relationship.. So what if frat house–hopping has earned her a certain reputation around campus? At least no one gets hurt this way—especially her.
When ridiculously gorgeous Jaxon Riley moves in next door, Emerson’s not sure how long her vow against emotional intimacy can last. Jaxon’s tattoo, muscles, and sexy voice make him tempting, but he also seems to really understand her…until his jealous ex-girlfriend and Emerson’s life-changing discovery about her parents get thrown into the mix. After everything she’s been through, can Emerson handle a real relationship? Or will breaking her rules just lead to a broken heart?
My Review: If I am going to be honest here, and I am always honest I struggled with this book, but not because the book was bad, actually this book was pretty damn amazing. I struggled with the main character. I saw way too much of myself in Emerson. I didn’t sleep around but I was not a very committed person in college. It is not a proud moment but I believed every dude was just going to hurt me in the end and I made sure to play it safe in college.
yeah yeah I know, not healthy.
That being said I loved this book & because of this found Emerson to be very believable. “Damaged” girls exist and I think when they are well written it makes the book very enjoyable such as the case with this novel. I will certainly continuing reading this series because I really could not put this novel down. IT was fantastic read and I can’t wait to read the next one.
