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 needs—and wants—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.
I loved this book!! Even after all these years I find it as good as I did back then! The characters are lovable, the story is well paced and the romance is not the insta-love we are used to read these days.
Abby was a great heroine, not a stupid girl who falls for the bad boy. It took time and more friendship for the relationship to developp. Her back story was not a dramatic one, which was good! I mean, now every story has a girl with a dramatic background and it’s suppose to add to a character… No. It doesnt. How you write the character and her actions define her, not her past!
Travis was your typical bad boy, tattooed love interest. What I like about him is that he was flawed. He was not the golden boy who changed everything for a girl. He still kept his temper and was a pain sometimes. He was also extremely funny!
The writing was great! I laughed more time than I thought possible. The only part that I found was not as great as I remembered was at the 3/4 of the book where Abby’s father comes into the story. It didn’t add anything in my opinion, it could have been cut and the story would have been great anyway.
Good book! Still recommending it!
