Overview

Irelyn Colby is excited to start a new life at college. Granted, her well-to-do grandparents are footing the bill, but that's a sacrifice she's willing to make for the sake of a good education.

Although the house she lives in with her mother and special needs cousin is just minutes away from campus, her grandfather insists that she stay in the dorms in order to have the 'total college experience.' Irelyn complies, going home on the weekends to spend time with her family and Dustin, her high school sweetheart.

When her new roommates, Bailey and Morgan, share their wild, weekend adventures, Irelyn gets a little jealous. How she longs to break free of the 'good girl, good student' mold and have a little fun. Besides, she'd love to have a funny tale to share with Dustin when she meets him for dinner at her grandparents' country club on Saturday night.

But things don't go as planned. The girls take her to a popular bar where a local band plays on Friday nights and Irelyn is captivated by the lead singer, Lucas. She meets him after his set and the sparks fly. Unable to control herself, she spends the night with him only to suffer a huge bout of guilt the next morning. What will she tell Dustin?

Bailey convinces Irelyn that it was a fluke - nothing Dustin needs to know about. Morgan urges her to stay away from Lucas. Irelyn agrees, vowing to stay away from Lucas once she retrieves the cell phone she lost that Friday night when she was with him.

Unfortunately, Irelyn's plans don't work out very well as she can't seem to stay away from him. She continues to see Lucas, all the while lying to Dustin, and hiding the entire situation from her controlling grandfather.

As the lies continue to stack up, topped by confusing feelings, Irelyn must make a decision: Does she stay with Dustin, the sweet, safe boy with a promising future? Or does she follow her heart and run to Lucas, the one who makes her feel real?

And what will her grandfather have to say about her choice?

I've been writing for years mostly as a hobby. I read constantly, although I'm pretty particular about what I read. I do not have a website for my work yet (yeah, I know, what is wrong with me, right?) but once I do, I'll post the link here.

Let me start by saying I'm not an advocate of cheating or in love triangles. But in this case I willing went along for the great ride it turned out to be. This story is really great, you see what happens when young people are too involved and think they're ready for the big commitment, when in reality they aren't. It didn't take much for Irelyn to fall head over heels in love with someone who wasn't her douchey boyfriend. You cheer for the "other guy" through out the story. If you loved S.C. Stephens, Jamie McGuire, and Colleen Hoover's books you are in for a treat! this is a good story that developes quickly and all the characters have a purpose. Don't miss this one. Your heart will thank you!

I liked this story just as much as Thoughtless and Effortless. The story line was different enough that I really liked it :)

If you are a fan of Thoughtless and Effortless, you will enjoy reading All The Wrong Reasons. This story is more romance than erotica with subtle but beautiful intimate scenes. I loved the heroine Irelyn although I wished she was more forthcoming at times with her emotions but I get that the author wanted to build on the suspense. And how can you not love Lucas??? A Total sweet heart!!! Yes their relationship didn't exactly start out on a honest foot but I loved them together. Moving on to the sequel, Vicious Circles!!! Looking forward to Bailey's story!

I loved the story, the characters you immediately care about, and the plot is fantastic. I stayed up till the wee hours in the morning because I REALLY couldn't put it down. If you love Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster you'll love this one. It's a fantastic heart wrenching and dramatic love story that will leave you wishing there was more! Loved loved loved it! Can't wait for the sequel to be available on the NOOK. I see it's out on Amazon along with more by Jenna Leigh Paul. Bring on the Nook version I am ready to read :D!

Great story. Its got lots of passion and romance. There's sex scenes that are still hot without being too detailed, its mostly about what happens right before the deed. I loved the characters. Its a love triangle that you can understand and you feel bad for irelyn and just want her to be happy. The end was drawn out though, when it kepy going I thought something good was going to happen but no. Its just a prolonged ending. I loved the story.
