I finished this book with a sense of disappointment and frustration. I realize the characters are young, but I didn't find anything about their relationship sexy or romantic.

Synopsis

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.

...Travis doesn’t change. He’s still the uber violent rage monster that he was in the start of the book...and Abby is the very young woman who keeps forgiving him.

...the one thing this book undeniably does is make you think. The couple and the story stick with you long after you put the book down.

The middle part of the book, where we find out Abby’s true nature was the high point for me. I would most likely compare this story to Fight Club meets 21 (both movie versions).

I hope Jamie McGuire will write a book in which I can cheer for the relationship, because then I will gush and gush over it. The writing is amazing, the plot just made me cringe.

...my favorite parts were the sexytimes and the breathless can't-live-without-each-other feeling that McGuire captures so perfectly.
