I loved this book!  I read it in 2 days and started it as soon as it came out (usually books languish in the TBR pile) . The depth of this book and the characters astounded me.  We are hit with the fact that Hannah was raped in high school (off page) within the first few pages.  Right then I knew this was not only going to be a fun and lighthearted romp.   We see so much of the relationship between Hannah and Garrett develop naturally – the romance comes after the friendship which starts out with some adversarial interactions.  They are at times annoying, funny, cute, caring and understanding but always seemed believable.   Hannah and Garrett seemed real to me.  Yes, they are in college and in some aspects they are a little older than their years (they both have been through some traumatic things in their young lives), but most of the time they seem to be typical 20 year old college students.  They sound like it, they act like it.  They have real issues, and sometimes there are arguments and some drama, but for the most part they deal with them like real people – they talk and resolve.   Their friends are a key part of their lives, but they do not overtake the main couple. We see them in so many scenarios that are part of normal college life, dealing both with challenges with each other and with other people in their lives. I also liked that they did not let the things that happened when they were younger derail their lives.  Yes, they made choices about how they were going to live and there are some lasting impacts, but mostly they are normal college juniors getting on with their lives.   I really liked how Ms. Kennedy was able to wring the emotion out of the story.  The scene where Hannah and Garrett are first intimate was awesome – it was hot, and there was obvious action, but there was also so much more going on within the plot of the book that made it even more moving.   I was at times smiling, laughing out loud, crying and cheering for our characters.  I can’t wait to read the next one in this series.  I think I liked most of the secondary characters as much as Hannah and Garrett.

I'm always a little hesitant buying books that are about relationships in college because the characters can be very immature. But that wasn't the case with this book. Great story, great characters & a hea!

Loved this book. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. It has love, humor & real life experiences that are not far fetched. Trust me, it was great! Enjoy

## Another fantastic read by Elle Kennedy. Wow, she has a talent for making us readers care deeply for her characters. Normally I don't read college stories. My own kids are in college so I find the characters much too young. However I buy everything Ms. Kennedy writes so I had to give this book a chance. Boy, am I glad I did. This book was tremendous. The hero and heroine had fabulous chemistry; their progression from strangers to friends to lovers was beautifully written. It was funny, sexy and heartwrenching all in one. My only complaint and this is HUGE for me and the sole reason I couldn't rate this book 5 stars was that we had to read the sex scenes between the hero and other women. God, that was excruciating for me. thanks. Will I read this again? Yep, that's affirmative...but now I will be prepared and will skip those scenes. Because the rest was stellar!

A great read with a disappointing end! The characters and story are engaging but I felt as though the author stopped writing about Hannah and Garrett. The ending was so abrupt with guy wins championship and kisses the girl...the end.

It took 100+ pages of teenage/college angst before the main characters even start to get together. There was no need to literally tell us every time she goes to the bathroom. Out of 343 pages the best part was in the last 40 pages! The shower scene was awesome... I truly did laugh out loud. If only the whole book could have been that good.

This book is a complete story. No cliffhanger, over 300 pages , well written great story. I read this over the weekend and my only disappointment was that it ended. I will be happy to reward this author with purchases of other books in the series. After so many “free books” being so short with ridiculous cliffhangers it is refreshing to receive an entire story of likable characters and a believable story line that was emotional and at times funny!
