She finds her self being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate's brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled...they're exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she's happy.
Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.(
We are introduced to Harper who is on her way to college far away from her strict Marine father, she is portrayed as pure innocence, at her 18 years, she has never been kissed and knows nothing of the world, her whole life she was surrounded by jarheads and everything changes as soon as her new roommate arrives.
Breanna the roommate becomes her first and only female friend, for the first time in her life she is attending parties where boys pay attention to her, dating etc. I could barely stand Harper and had a hard time believing the reasoning behind her acts.
Chase is Breanna's brother who is introduced to Harper early in the book and just like that she is head over heels with him but doesn't want to admit that she is attracted to him, mainly because he is a one night stand kind of guy. Brandon is a handsome underground fighter and the other love interest, I had to overlook some over the top situations in their relationship.
It's difficult to explain my feelings towards this book, at the end, it made me go through so many it made me happy, shocked, in love and angry, some parts were just unrealistic but not enough to make me stop reading.The character that hold my heart was Chase, he transforms so much during the journey that I couldn't help but to fall for him. While reading I had the feeling the story could have been spread into 2 books and I'm glad that wasn't the case.
Things move fast in this book I thought the love interest was rushed in both cases since we are talking about a love triangle.Overall I enjoyed this contemporary novel.
