The most valuable lesson Emerson Moore ever learned was from her parents: never get too attached to someone else. That’s why this hard-partying college student plays by her own code of bedroom conduct, refusing to stay with the same guy for too long. She gets all the pleasure of having a good time without the messiness of a relationship. So what if frat house–hopping has earned her a certain reputation around campus? At least no one gets hurt this way—especially her.
When ridiculously gorgeous Jaxon Riley moves in next door, Emerson’s not sure how long her vow against emotional intimacy can last. Jaxon’s tattoo, muscles, and sexy voice make him tempting, but he also seems to really understand her…until his jealous ex-girlfriend and Emerson’s life-changing discovery about her parents get thrown into the mix. After everything she’s been through, can Emerson handle a real relationship? Or will breaking her rules just lead to a broken heart?
Oh my God. This book has left me in a book hangover. Like seriously. I finished this book awhile ago but it’s STILL with me. It’s still sitting in my soul. Jaxon and Emerson are epic characters and beautifully chiseled. I cried for them, both happily and sadly. I felt the pain, the heartache, as if it was my own. Their story is filled with angst and their passion rolls off the pages. Only one other author makes me feel this way about their books. Ms. Lauren has taken a spot right next to that author as a new favorite one and I can’t wait to read the next book in this beautiful series. Definitely recommending this book to all with high flying 5 stars!!
