Overview

They say
University is the time
To find yourself
But I don't need to find myself
Just want to find you

After watching his older siblings find their love matches at Highbanks University, Mateo Ramirez feels unlikely to follow in their footsteps. What girl would want him? Unlike his brother and sister, he battles diabetes and chooses music over sports. But at least he can write songs about his life-and the girl who caught his eye when their parents ran against each other for US President.

Hey, chica! Come conmigo
And baby, why don't we go
Down under the bridge to the water
With you it can only get hotter

Jessica Monroe is a talented swimmer who dreams of representing Team USA at the Olympics. When she earns an athletic scholarship to Highbanks, she's excited to attend the same school as the cute boy she met two years ago: Mateo. Too bad he's not around when a teammate spikes her drink. Jessica may never trust men again.

Trust
Is a hard-to-earn thing
Just
Try to keep listening

College years are the time to shake off the past and find your future. But will that future find Mateo and Jessica together? Dive in and immerse yourself in the eagerly anticipated conclusion to Jennifer Lane's Blocked trilogy.

Jen loves to create sporty heroines and hot heroes in her college sport romances.

A swimmer and volleyball player in college, Jen writes swimming-based romances as well: Streamline, a military mystery, and the free New Adult novella Swim Recruit.

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is also the author of The Conduct Series, a romantic-suspense trilogy that includes With Good Behavior, Bad Behavior, and On Best Behavior.

Ultimately, whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and visiting her sisters in Chicago and Hilton Head.

I’m so so so glad that I read Blocked over a year ago because that story brought me to this one; every single book in this series has been strong and amazing. Each one dealing with different issues and each one being delivered and talked about in a judgment free way. So, a little background info, in this book we follow Jessica and Mateo, Jessica is a swimmer and Mateo a singer/guitarist who also happens to be the son of the president of the US. They have both met before and are now attending the same college. Mateo has had a thing for Jessica for a long time and Jessica thinks Mateo is cute. On the first day on campus Jessica goes to a party and the most awful thing happens to her, now from that moment on we are in Jessica’s head, the realization of what happened to her, the ramifications of those actions and just the constant fear that she is unprotected, that she is alone and that maybe it could happen again. Jennifer Lane did an amazing job in this book, dealing with this subject matter is hard, is hard to read about and I’m sure is hard to write about but I think the fact that she is a psychologists and that she has some experience with this type of situation helped a lot. I had never read in a book the kind of dialog that Jessica has with her therapist, I had never read about the ways that we can help, the ways that they can help themselves and the ultimate question, to report or not report? Those chapters were so fantastically written, they were hard to read but very informative, I liked that the issue is not swiped under the rug, I liked that Jessica got better a little bit at a time and that she could be happy in the end. On the other hand Mateo is so amazing!! He is also dealing with things but his have to do with his health; he supports Jessica and never passes judgment on her action which was so wonderful to read. This entire book is PERFECT! I think it’s my favorite of the entire series, and I think that if you haven’t read this series you should absolutely start NOW!
