Book Description

New Adult Romance

**A New York Times & USA Today Bestseller**

Needing an escape from her past, Avery chooses a college where no one knows her. Keeping a low profile was the plan, falling for the intense frat boy, Jase wasn’t. Yet she can’t deny how alive she feels when he’s near. Even as common sense implores her to stay away, her body begs her to get closer.

Jase, numb from his own family drama, has grown bored with weekends fueled by nameless girls and countless bottles when he meets Avery. Helping her cope with her past is better than dealing with the bullshit his own life’s served up. Determined to drive away the painful secret she’s guarding, he appoints himself her life coach, and challenges her to new experiences. Getting close to her and being the one to make her smile are simply perks of the job.

But when Avery’s past boldly saunters in, refusing to be forgotten, can Jase live with the truth about the girl he’s fallen for?

Recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring June 10, 2013
By Laura
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read a few books by this author but her last one I was disappointed with and this one was just boring.

19 year old Avery chooses a college where no one knows her because of something that happened in her past. When she meets frat boy Jase she is interested in him but only as friends. Jase used to be a bit of a manwhore but a family drama has taken up much of his time and now he has decided he doesn't want to continue the lifestyle he had although an ex girlfriend of his is rather persistent (and who I actually felt sorry for at some points!).

Jase decides he will be Avery's Life Coach. He senses she is withdrawn and urges her to experinence new challenges. Avery is worried when she sees a girl from her past that her secret is going to come out. When it does, it's a bit sudden and a bit of an anti-climax.

I don't know what the author was thinking with this book. It feels like a debut novel. Nothing really happens. It's boring. There is no connection between Avery and Jase and I didn't believe in their love story. I also found Jase's nickname for Avery irritating.

My main issue is the lack of dialogue with other characters. Avery was adopted by two men. They appear in the book but not in dialogue form. We learn nothing of how it was to be brought up by two men as if this isn't an unusual situation. Jase encourages her to search for her birth mother and even their meeting lacks much dialogue. I would have liked to know why her birth mother gave her up for adoption. It all seemed a bit unrealistic to me. Avery's roomates don't get much dialogue nor do Jase's frat brothers. It's all just really odd how most of the other characters are just glossed over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book! I must admit I love all of Kendall Ryan's books because she always has such fresh story lines. This book is no different and doesn't disappoint. I was a little worried when I read the book description because I've already read several books about girl goes to college, meets bad boy, reforms him. With true Kendall Ryan style though, they both have their own reasons for behaving and changing the way they are. It doesn't just change out of the blue. She gave them plenty of time to evolve. I would definitely recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jase June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Avery I knew I was gonna love her, especially when the first sentence of the book is, "thirty minutes into my first college party, and I'm ready to smack someone in the face with a shovel." Avery she speaks what she thinks at times and I like it, "for being cool with my...crap." She twists her hands in her lap. "I guess I expected you to be different. The Jase Owens I've heard about is a major player and always..." Oh Jase good lord man you kill me, "that way I'm not the perv staring at her ti*s. Which are exceptionally nice, I quickly note." He's also protective, "you'll let me know if there's someone's ass I should kick, though, right?" Good lord he's cocky, but I love him, "hey, it's okay. If you need tutoring in the bedroom too, babe, just ask."

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book June 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok so I'll say it again....I LOVE Kendall Ryan books. This is no exception. I started reading this as soon as I saw it was released EARLY and I didn't stop until I was finished. I will say that in Kendall Ryan fashion...This book was a quick read, but by no means does this book feel rushed. I actually loved the flow and pace of this book. Nothing was rushed or instant and it didn't drag out to where you could get bored. I really liked the speed of Jase and Avery' s relationship. I enjoyed that they took the time to get to know each other and didn't rush into the physical aspect of the relationship to quickly. I also really liked that Avery stuck to her guns when it came to Jase and didn't let other people talk her out if getting to know him...just because he had a player background. I was thrilled at the end when Avery realized that her past doesn't define who she is and that she could get past it.

I would definitively recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Kendall Ryan. I am really looking forward to her next book Working It.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seemed like a cheap imitation June 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this book. Really I did. So many spelling and grammar mistakes was my first turnoff. Secondly, completely undeveloped secondary characters. Thirdly, this book reminded me of a miserable copy of a book I did love "wait for you" by J.Lynn. The main character even had the same name, Avery. My advice, skip this and go for "wait for you" longer, more in depth and much more worth the money. This book is $3 I wish I didn't spend unfortunately. I think the author could do better with a little more time, because she has potential for sure! Just don't rush it!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Adult at its Finest!!! July 31, 2013
By Dawn
Format:Kindle Edition
Kendall has done it again! If you like her erotic romance, you'll LOVE this New Adult story. Characters I wish I had as friends in college, a boy that gets my heart (and other things) going just thinking about him, and a journey that is unforgettable -- this story rocked my world. Sexy, sweet, and oh so much fun. Fans of romance and New Adult will not be disappointed!!
