Book Description

USA TODAY Bestseller

Scarlett Goodwin’s world is divided into Before and After.

Before she agreed to tutor Tucker Price, college junior Scarlett was introvert, struggling with her social anxiety disorder and determined to not end up living in a trailer park like her mother and her younger sister. A mathematics major, she goes to her classes, to her job in the tutoring lab, and then hides in the apartment she shares with her friend, Caroline.

After junior Tucker Price, Southern University’s star soccer player enters the equation, her carefully plotted life is thrown off its axis. Tucker’s failing his required College Algebra class. With his eligibility is at risk, the university chancellor dangles an expensive piece of computer software for the math department if Scarlett agrees to privately tutor him. Tucker’s bad boy, womanizer reputation makes Scarlett wary of any contact, let alone spending several hours a week in close proximity.

But from her first encounter, she realizes Tucker isn’t the person everyone else sees. He carries a mountain of secrets which she suspects hold the reason to his self-destructive behavior. But the deeper she delves into the cause of his pain, the deeper she gets sucked into his chaos. Will Scarlett find the happiness she’s looking for, or will she be caught in Tucker’s aftermath?

REDESIGNED (Off the Subject #2) Caroline's story coming late May

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly really, really good. March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Firstly, let me say there is nothing new in this story - it's all about the good girl falling for the bad boy in a university setting and, of course, they are both damaged.

So, what did stand out?

- It was very well written. The author displayed a great talent for building a credible story slowly but steadily to a satisfying conclusion. (Note that the intimate scenes are limited to the second half of the book and aren't exactly going to steam up your e-reader.)
- The heroine was a maths major. Yay! Finally an intelligent girl who isn't studying some form of art, design or history...
- The heroine wasn't 'drop-dead-gorgeous but completely unaware of it' (as so many of them are crafted); instead, she's just a fairly average girl who wins the hero's affection in other ways.
- The writer was technically proficient (spelling, grammar etc) - always a major bonus in the e-book arena.

Look forward to reading future works from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't expect to like it so much March 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has a very depressing tone, despite being a feelgood read. I know that makes no sense, but just bear with me.
I guess I could say that I didn't expect to like it as much as I did after some reviews I read, but it wasn't ah-mayzing, either.

Being in Scarlett's head was sometimes exhausting. It's not just the fact that she was so closed off, but she would often turn into a real drama queen and it was annoying as hell. It was really okay during the first half of the book, but during the second it was almost unbearable how much she made a big deal out of everything.
On the other hand, she's a genuinely good person, and I liked that she really cared about Tucker rather than being swayed by his good looks and football superstar status. She actually didn't care about that, at all. She's also not the virginal, naive heroine, as much as she seems so at first. Oh and, she has no self-image issues, she knows she's good looking, she just doesn't like the attention.

Tucker, on the other hand, was an enigma from start to finish. This will probably sound weird because, sure, you get to know him some, and I actually really, really liked him, but overall, he was a mystery and he remained a mystery to me. I understood his struggles, but I didn't connect with him all that much. Sometimes I wished it was dual POV just so I could get inside his head.

I said it in my status updates, and I'll say it again: These two were one huge mess of insecurities. But nevertheless, you can see that they were made for each other, and I had some seriously aweeeee moments reading it. They were just so sweet together.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blah June 30, 2013
By julesm
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nothing new here, except maybe extra gloomy and depressing. This story has been told a million times: shy girl meets hot man whore, she miraculously "changes" him.
BORING. I don't mind reading about people who've had hard lives, but the two main characters in this were extra annoying and over dramatic. "I'm so broken." "I'm so lonely." Shut the **** up already! Quit being so whiny and stuck in the past, and move the **** on! They're in college, both going places, what are they still so mopey about? Ugh. There is no humor or anything remotely interesting in this book. There are pages of the guy teaching the girl to run and train. Who the hell wants to read about that? SPOILER: Then the girl convinces the guy to "follow his heart" and become a gym teacher instead of a pro soccer player. WTF? Who the hell would choose that? I don't care how much he supposedly hated soccer, that is completely stupid and unrealistic. I am definitely not reading anything by this author again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Read March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I love all of Denise Grover Swank's writting. This was no different. The cadence and flow were signature Denise. I personally didn't feel a connection to the main character and wish the ending was a little....more. Other than that, all of the emotional moments were perfect. Overall the story had many amazingly intense, sexy, sweet and raw scenes. A great stand alone book.

3.0 out of 5 stars college kids July 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's okay if you like collage age kids that are borderline stupid. The heroine is a brilliant math student, working hard to get an education and a career to get her out of the life she grew up in, not a good one. The hero is the star soccer player, on scholarship but failing everything, arrested for DUI, the man-whore, etc. Okay, so far it could probably be pretty close to life in any average college.

Now we take this brilliant, driven girl who just happens to have an anxiety problem and seems to be very introverted and she ALLOWS her best "friends" to take her to a party of a guy that they are acquainted with and proceed to get her drunk. She walks in the front door and they slam a beer bottle in her hand and push her to drink it in the first 4 minutes. This is a girl who does not drink. Ok, a frat party with liquor. Any 7 year old can tell you that is a recipe for disaster. Guys show up to screw girls and most girls show up to get screwed. HOWEVER, they are not man-whores and female whores they are just looking for a good time. I don't get that double standard thinking. The soccer player nails everything willing and he is a man-whore but they leave home with the idea of getting laid and that is just good fun. What is the difference? And, do you really need friends like this?

I got so annoyed with this whole set up that I quit reading. Since she is tutoring the soccer player and he is just a sad little boy looking for someone to really care about him we know where this is going. To read about the stupid party junk just annoyed me. If she was so smart she should have known better. Alcohol and sex are not going to "cure" her anxiety problem or better her life. She should be smarter than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars but it was so rushed at the end and I feel like it came up short
I really wanted to give this five stars because I couldn't put it down, but it was so rushed at the end and I feel like it came up short. Maybe I just didn't want the story to end.

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.) Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.
