Overview

Spunky Italian coed Ivy Rossini likes to talk and push the boundaries. She gets to do both as she co-hosts Riordan College’s radio program, The Truths about Dating and Mating, alongside her lifelong best friend, Ian Hollister.

Being the only girl who cares to see beyond Ian’s bad boy reputation has its advantages, especially when he’s scaring off the jerks who just want to nail the campus sex-guru. It’s when he’s “protecting” her from the advances she welcomes that she wants to lob him over the head and tell him to butt out. But Ivy feels like she’s the one who’s taken a hit when Ian almost kisses her at a party. She knows she should feel relieved when he pulls away, so why is she disappointed instead?

What’s worse, Ivy’s now getting aroused by Ian’s slightest touch and can’t stop entertaining thoughts of a romantic future. But Ian doesn’t do relationships, and she’s not interested in anything casual. In the end, Ivy decides it’s best to keep her growing feelings a secret and hope they’ll pass. However, when Ian begins hinting at wanting to take things to the next level, she’s forced to decide if a chance at something more is worth risking everything they’ve built.

With their friendship and her heart hanging in the balance, can Ivy follow the advice she and Ian give their listeners - to communicate, be honest, and trust in themselves - or will insecurity, stubbornness, and pride ruin any chance of their relationship getting off the ground?

Warning: Containts graphic sex and strong language. For mature audiences.

    There are so many stories about two best friends falling in love

    There are so many stories about two best friends falling in love, but this one hits it out of the park. Ian and Ivy make quite the pair - their chemistry is incredible. Had just enough angst, humor, and romance to keep me interested without having to say, "Okay, this is enough of that." Loved it. Finished it in one day. Highly recommend it! You won't regret reading TTADAM.

    I love the banter between Ivy and Ian! From the first chapter I just wanted to throw them together and say do it already! But well, you know Ian, sort of is a player at first and Iv'y's just the best friend - but a funny, firecracker of a best friend!
