Trying to clean out my Kindle the other day I came across this -- didn't ring a bell so I started to read it ... and couldn't put it down. I stayed up until 1am to finish it. Ouch! In my previous (read: younger) life I was a wonk, lived + worked in the District focusing on int'l policy, so for a YA / NA story to focus even tangentially in a real and smart way on policy was like candy to this baby.

As a feminist (I was raised in the late '70s-80s, after all) I've been feeling really "icky" due to the plethora of overpowering / domineering male - weaker / submissive female stories flooding the market, esp the e-market. I get that books are or can be escapist, and that's great, but what kind of message is being sent?

So to read this delightful book about a young woman (I term I'm going to use loosely as she's only 19), Monica, who has been the recipient of a horrific yet all too common event keep moving forward felt like a breath of fresh air. I was so proud of her. I was proud of the author for depicting Monica's fears, their repercussions, and that she sought counseling (which is for some crazy reason taboo in our society). I also enjoyed reading the realistic give-and-take which occurs among girls -- the cattiness, the only-occasional admission (of said cattiness), and the real friendship and support girls can provide other girls. Monica's good friend, Melanie, was a real friend without being a mere convenience.

Monica is a transfer sophomore at a state uni, living near campus in an apartment with a pothead roommate, Sam; their neighbor is a charming boy, Trey, who also happens to be the conservative Republican governor's son. Trey is smitten with Monica and her chutzpah.

I get daily emails with novels I would be interested in and The Only Exception was one of them. *Spoiler Alert!*

I was a little reserved at first, but the blurb caught my interest. So, I thought I'd give it a try. The fact that this author paired a liberal with a conservative intrigued me and I wondered how she was going to pull it off.

I read the news daily and I see the comments coming from both sides and sometimes it isn't pretty and from the first chapter, I thought that this was how it was going to go, boy was I wrong.

The backstory dealing with Monica's rape really tied together, the history of Monica and why she was more social conscious. Trey was a wonderful surprise, son of the governor, wore the same type of expensive clothes, a little stiff but a virgin. My, my, my. I don't think I've ever read a story where that was reversed. Ms. Vernon did a great job in not making the whole situation embarrassing or have the reader look down at Trey as a wuss.

Not only was he a man in bed but he came to his girl's rescue on several occasions.

I really enjoyed this story and the author did a great job of taking a volatile topic and turning it into a sweet love story that gives valuable advise to other young men and women that happen to have ended up in this type of situation.

I give this book 5 stars for the author being brave and bold to write this story and because it was a wonderful read. I am recommending that my own college age daughter read, not for the love scenes but for the relationship and the hot topic of politics and for the insightful blurb at the end of the book that I suspect the author wrote personally and from the heart.

I just finished reading The Only Exception and I really liked it. The protagonist, Monica, is intelligent, fiery and damaged but not beyond repair and Trey is as charming as he is conservative. His attraction to Monica is instant - she is unique and she isn't the least bit afraid to put him, the Governor's son, in his place and she does so every chance she gets. He loves that she isn't afraid to challenge him and his beliefs and that she isn't just another vapid coed looking to elevate her status. The unfortunate experience in Monica's past that saw her transfer schools is a familiar storyline these days especially in New Adult and mature YA books but it is the political aspect of this story that sets it apart.

This book has some extremely well written dialogue between Monica and Trey and their political discussions are especially well done. Trey's father is a Republican with some views and ideas that are wretched and just plain wrong as far as Monica is concerned and she struggles with her attraction to Trey who appears to fully support the issues that haunt her. The author did an excellent job of explaining both sides of some very sensitive issues and I appreciated her perspectives as Monica and Trey, but especially Trey, grew to understand that no one issue is ever cut and dry and there are always exceptions - always.

Don't worry if you are not familiar with American politics - after reading the first few chapters of this story it will be pretty clear where each side stands on the primary issue of contraception and all it encompasses. But that is definitely not all this story is about. It is also a story about growing up and slaying your demons, falling in love, unexpected innocence, the stupidity of first impressions and embracing differences. Give it a shot if you are looking for a decent romance story ... it isn't perfect but I found it quite intriguing and I'm glad I took a chance on it. Verified Amazon Purchase
