This is the first book I have ever read by Emily Robertson. I became interested in her books when I received information on her latest book in an e-mail. When I looked up that book, I discovered that it is part of a series about the Portwood Brothers. So, I decided, that if I was going to read this series, then I should start with the first book.
The two people in this story, Addison and Bryce, are students in their first year of college who meet in a common class. Addison is from Nebraska and lives in the dorm. Her parents are very prim and proper and expect Addison to behave the same way. In other words, No jeans, no alcohol, no boyfriends. She must concentrate on school work so that her grades will be perfect enough to for her to get into law school.
On the other hand, Bryce lives at home with his parents. He is a joker who doesn’t seem to take anything serious. He has no problem skipping classes or getting drunk. He appears to be the total opposite of Addison.
At first, I had a hard time liking Bryce because of his attitude. Then, I remembered back to my own college years, and I realized that Bryce acts exactly like a college student. Because of this recognition, I was able to like Bryce and better enjoy this book.
I enjoyed this book, and I can’t wait to read the other books in this series.
It's a contemporary romance novella and very easy to read.
It was a great introduction to this family and the characters involved.
Addison and Bryce are complete opposites to each other but as they grow closer, they learn things from each other and become stronger together.
There are ups and downs and obstacles that they face but it also had humour and a depth to the main and secondary characters and I found it hard to put this down.
The ending was a bit abrupt with no epilogue so I'm hoping we get to visit with Addision and Bryce again in later books.
First of all, when we were first introduced to Bryce, I didn't like the man at all. He didn't know where he was going and I felt like he was just playing with Addison to see what he could get her to do. But as the story unfolded, we got a chance to sneak a few glances at Bryce's feelings - towards Addison, towards his family, and towards school. By the end of the book, I was in love with Bryce.
Addison, wow, that girl is a mess. She feels so much pressure, legitimately or not, that she's so scared of making a wrong move that she almost let Bryce get away, even going so far as to date someone "more appropriate". Bryce takes some of that pressure away, makes her feel like living again. Bryce and Addison complement each other so well and Emily Robertson really got that through to us.
I can't wait to see where their story goes and there are some secondary characters I'd like to see again. (hint hint, Ms Emily)
Bryce Portwood is nothing but the trouble Addison is trying to avoid. The problem with that is Bryce has no intention of letting her avoid him. He's out to change her mind and show her he's more than the class clown.
It's only when Addison realizes how deep Bryce's feelings are for her that she decides taking chances may be the only thing that will allow her to move past all her troubles.
Really well written with very likable characters. I can't wait for more in the series.
I loved this story and I am going to add the rest of this series to my tbr list and must buy soon pile.
This is the first I have read by this author.
I loved getting to know Addison and Bryce. I loved Bryce!!! I saw a note from the author that she didn't get along well with him but I want a Bryce of of my own. He is cocky and arrogant but he is so much more than that. Addison is more reserved and Bryce is trying to get her to loosen up some.
I was left wanting more of these characters. I wanted to slap Addison's parents, more so her mom than dad. I look forward to getting to know more about the Portwood family.
