But Tess finds the rules unraveling as she fights to make her dreams come true. Attending Canton is a dream, one that her father doesn't want her to have. But when she makes the choice to get there no matter what, her two worlds come crashing together. One summer two years ago she met a boy. A boy that she lost her virginity to, a boy that she didn't speak to again because she needed to focus on her goals. But when she arrives at Canton not only does she run into Dylan again she finds him in a relationship with her half sister. But as they work together on a class project the feelings from two years ago come back tot he surface. But Tess can't be the other woman. She can't fall into the same relationship that her parents share, the life of lies she was born into. And as much as she should resent her half sister for having everything she's been denied, she can't help but not want to hurt her in the process.
But months of being in Dylan's presence brings back all those old feelings. Falling in love with him happened two years ago - but before she can truly have him, he needs to be available. But her past is lurking in the shadows and although she can't reveal the truth without breaking all the rules, the lies might destroy everything.
I enjoyed this college romance immensely. Tess was such a likable character that was a fighter. I loved that she stuck to her guns and although she might have faltered once or twice, she held strong. Dylan was a lovable nerd. I was a little worried that he might have changed too much from that awkward boy she met two years before, but was so pleased to see that he was still that sweet geek.
Although Dylan is in a relationship, the friendship and flirting didn't register with that 'cheating' vibe. I started to worry for a bit since that is usually something that I don't like in romances, but Viv Daniels did a great job keeping these two on the edge and ensuring that you felt their connection strongly, that you were pulling for things to fall into place for them so it could all work out. And she accomplished all that without making you hate Hannah (the sister/girlfriend).
I am looking forward to Hannah's story in the next installment. Not sure if there is redemption for their father - but there is no denying that the each of the characters you meet in the first book makes you hope they all get their chance at a story, especially Annabel.
