"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The guy's a pushy jerk...you know the "I can get any girl I want and I want you" guy. We know he's hot, because the author keeps reminding us, but he's also rude and pushy. I was put off from the first chapter.
The girl is one of those women incapable of controlling her emotions. If I have one book pet peev, it's female characters the author keeps telling the reader is "strong" or "independent," but one look from a hot guy and she turns into an bimbo. For example, she doesn't drink...but just having shots placed in front of her at a bar is too much "peer pressure" for her to resist...It's freaking ridiculous.
And the girl's best friend? She's one of those character's that no one would be friends with in real life - her sole purpose as a character is just to set up the plot by being a terrible friend. The author needs the two main character's to be stuck alone together?? Well naturally the "best friend" is going to ditch the heroine to go on a road trip and leave her BFF alone in a cabin with a basic stranger...because that's what best friends do.
And I figured out the "twist" in the second chapter -- seriously, this book was just poorly thrown together.
Months later ava and her friend go on a road trip to see their favorite band. Car trouble leaves them stranded in a desolate area. When ava goes for help the person who answers the door is her rich obnoxious jerk, who she has been fantasizing about.
They stay with him and that is where it gets interesting. The chemistry between these two characters is sizzling. The surprise waiting was worth the read. Love jc reed all her books are steamy and full of alpha males. Definitely worth reading.
This is a heartfelt story of the proverbial bad boy that turns out to not be so bad. I sure wouldn't mind helping him with his horses!!!
The story moved along at a great pace, keeping the interest all the way through! I can see myself going back to re-read again and again!
