Description

A New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller about a good girl dangerously drawn to the ultimate bad boy.

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

    the main characters are constantly contradicting themselves. it feels like it was written by a 15 year old wattpad author.

    I read this book years ago in high-school and gave it another try. I’m happy I’ve matured cause these characters certainly never would. Travis is immature, volatile, and a douche. Abby is lack luster, immature as well and vapid. None of these characters experience any sort of arc, they stay static throughout the entire book. Why yours anyone think this type of relationship is ok?

    Loved the intensity of the characters connection to one another. I loved her writing and how she kept me 100% engaged until the very end. I am going to purchase other titles from this author because she gets how to write a romance we all wish for!

    I’ve bought this book before and I wanted to read it again but wasn’t sure about paying for it again until I read all of the nasty reviews. I love this entire series and I’m happy to spend money enjoying these books. Even if it means repeatedly. Keep writing Jamie! You and you’re books are amazing! Thank you so so so much!

    I’m not typically one to gush over a book in the comments but this book changed that for me. From the beginning, when Abby met Travis I knew I was in for a ride. The depth of their friendship even before their relationship was envious. I fell in love with the characters. When Travis wouldn’t even go after Abby simply because she didn’t want him to, I fell even harder. Every reader can see feel the chemistry between them in every flip of the page. Both characters have incredible baggage they are carrying with them and the way that their different personalities cater to one another is astounding. I love how Abby is so much more rebellious than she lets on in the beginning. Also, how Travis is such a sweetheart compared to how rough and brutish he seems in the beginning. The gritty realism is captivating and shows you that there’s more than just simple love in the world. Every second makes you learn more about them and fall deeper in love with them and their love. The ups and downs are entrancing and sometimes you want to scream at the characters for not seeing whats right in front of them. That’s not a feeling you get very often during reading. It’s not your typical good girl loves bad guy story. There’s something about them that makes you love them from the very beginning. Jamie McGuire outdid herself with this novel. The story was amazing and the ending brought me to tears of joy. I couldn’t put it down from the very first chapter. I’ve already purchased the next book in the series and I expect that’s where the majority of my free time will go for the next couple of days. I recommend this to anyone looking for anything!
