Overview

That's me-Tingly Simmons-athlete, foreign-language major, professor lover, obsessed idiot girl. Definitely not a frat rat or sorority slut. I've never even played beer pong.

I ditched the vapid, soulless high-society life of Los Angeles for the promise of something more meaningful in rural Ohio. Accepting a track scholarship for college, I tried running my way to happiness, but instead I ended up sleeping with my French professor and falling head over heels for him.

When that relationship fell apart, so did I.

Barely hanging on by a thread and using the most absurd coping skills, I was determined to hide behind my past indiscretions. That was, until I met Tiberius Jones. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd learn the truth about love from a six-foot-five basketball player.

4 - "Be extra-ordinary." Stars! It wasn’t a real surprise to me that I absolutely adored Vérité. This isn’t the first book I have read by Rachel Blaufeld and I know for certain it won’t be the last. ”Let’s think of the now.” There is one thing that you can guarantee, and that is that this is an author who takes the standard and popular tropes and gives them a unique and refreshing spin. Once again I was absolutely blown away by the level and skill of the author’s storytelling and depth of characterization for Tingly and Ty’s romance. ”Feel that? That’s my heart beating for you.” Both athletes, trying to make their way through college, and whilst Ty is a Basketball player, Tingly is a runner, but not just on the track, in every sense of the word. If things get difficult Tingly is the first off the blocks and out the door. ”Leave your running for the track. Leave your past where it belongs… in the dirt. If you’re gonna run, run to me, to your future, to being happy.” You can understand why, when pretty much everyone in her life and her past has dumped on her from a great height or used her for their own agenda. And I must admit I was worried that this ’Cut and Run’ type of relationship would get repetitive in it’s telling for me, but with everything else they had going on as a couple it actually added more depth to their eventual coming together in all senses of the word. ”Want you, all of you. Not just once or twice, or just for fun. Want all of you… The naughty and the nice, especially the nice, because I’m scared to death I’m going to screw up and not be the man you need when it comes to the naughty…” There is a massive amount of charm and vulnerability to both of these characters, and it was nice to see the author mix it up in relation to who was the inexperienced one in the relationship. You cannot help but feel empathy for them both, for everything they experience as individuals, on top of everything they have to deal with and get through on the path of becoming a solid couple. Loved it, can’t wait to sink my teeth into Dolce, the next book in the Love at Centre Court series, due for release on 21st January 2016.
