In this New Adult / College, Coming of Age story Tessa Ross tries to fight her attraction to bad boy Lucas Links. He is hot, arrogant, and has a sexual past that most boys his age could only dream of, (If they even knew they could dream of such things).
Lucas, the star quarterback seems to have it all, super star athletic abilities, expensive clothes, cars, and women who literally stop just to watch him walk by. On the outside he appears to have it all.
Tessa is a young woman who lives her life always doing what is right to make everyone else happy. She tries desperately to hold herself accountable to the demanding expectations of her family and everyone around her.
Is Tessa as innocent as she appears? Is Lucas just a spoiled young man who seems to have what every male, and female wants?
If you Love an emotional story that is full of spicy hot goodness. If you Love to follow a story from beginning until the bitter sweet end. If you are often left wondering what happened next... get your tissues and lip balm ready you are in for the read of your life.
As we all know, you should never judge a book by it's cover.
Sunny's Review:I really like the way this book was written. It is from several POVs and you could see what everyone is doing/thinking. There are a lot of issues that are shown in this book. You have Tessa trying to deal with problems in her home life and still be the good person she was raised to be. Lucas has had a crap-tastic life and hides it from everyone. Lucas is a total man-whore and really kind of a jerk in the beginning. As you go along you get to see why he is the way he and what he has had to deal with in his life. I am not giving him a pass b/c of this but it does help to understand him. Tessa is actually pretty forgiving of a lot of his faults and really isn't as judgmental as I thought she would be.
I really can't wait to see what happens and I can honestly say that I was very up and down emotionally with this book. It does not give me my HEA but I am definitely ready to get to the next book. I am giving this book 4.2 stars out of 5.

Lucas watched as Tessa handed out cups of water finally bringing him one. He had taken off his shirt as well, and he was gorgeous. “Thanks Tessa,” he smiled.
“Thank you for your help Lucas, it was very nice of you,” Tessa smiled shyly at him.
“And she can smile,” he joked. “All I have to do is sweat my ass off throwing hay. Good to know.”
“Tessa, Tessa, we have the corn. Can we help you make dinner for all the boys?” Kendall and Jake asked.
“Sure,” Tessa said smiling like a child as she rubbed her brother’s head, “Can you start husking the corn? I’ll be over in a minute.”
“Tessa, you are making me dinner?” Lucas smirked. “Our first date,” he smiled, drank down his water, and jumped up so he was nose to nose with her. She stopped breathing as he stood there for a moment looking her directly in the eyes. Her heart skipped a beat and she let out a slow breath.
Lucas’s smile left as he looked at her. He was finding it difficult to breathe too. He took a step back and gave her a conflicted smile before he scaled the elevator up to the hay loft.
I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book).
Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" I was able to take care of him.
Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.
