After reading this story, I had to ask myself, why have I never read a Tammara Webber story before?!! This story was UNPUTDOWNABLE!

Jacqueline Wallace followed her boyfriend of three years, Kennedy, to college and then unexpectedly, he dumps her to sow his wild oats. Jacqueline is devastated and for two-weeks she can't bring herself to face him in the economics class they share. She finally realizes that no guy is worth failing a class and trashing her GPA. So Jacqueline goes to the teacher and throws herself on his mercy, begging for a chance to catch up and pass the class. He connects her with the class tutor, Landon, and they begin emailing back and forth working on retrieving her grade. She starts to connect with Landon through the emails and wonders what he looks like. In class, Jacqueline notices another boy, Lucas. When he's not sketching in a notebook, she catches him staring at her, many times. Jacqueline never noticed Lucas before, but now he seems to be popping up everywhere. Now that she's not with Kennedy anymore, she can't help but see that he's gorgeous: clear gray-blue eyes, lean and muscled body, and bad-boy tattoos snaking up arms. Jacqueline doesn't know if she's ready for any relationship so soon after her break-up. Also, she's not sure if someone who is clearly just sketching and not listening in class is someone for her but she can't deny that she's attracted to him. Should she choose a guy who satisfies her body or her mind? Add to all of this, Jacqueline is getting very unwanted attention from Buck, a frat-mate of Kennedy, who suddenly after their break-up, is all about bullying and stalking Jacqueline! This guy is beyond creepy, and his type is the reason I carry pepper spray in my purse!

This story starts off with a bang! My heart was literally pounding in my chest from the opening scene! I won't say what happens but it was some start. As I said in the opening I could not put this book down. I read it in one day! I just loved everything about it. I liked that Jacqueline doesn't let the events in her life drag her down. She grieves over her break-up but then dusts herself off, and gets back to living. Her friend and roommate, Erin was the best sort of girlfriend. It's the type of relationship all us girls yearn to have, someone who is loyal and helps to empower us against what trips us up in life. It was a nice change from the usual "mean-girl" plot line in so many books now. Now let's get to Lucas, he is easily the knight-in-shining-armor of this book. He's so respectful, protective and just plain HOT! Some of the scenes in this book had me wiping off the steam gathering on my glasses many times! Let me tease you with a snippet:

"So I don't want to you to feel pressured. Or overpowered. But I do, absolutely, want to kiss you right now. Badly." He trailed his finger over my jaw and down my throat, and then into his lap. I stared at him. Finally comprehending that he was waiting for a response, I said, "Okay." ----As he leaned over me, I felt a heightened awareness of every part of my body that touched a part of his--the edge of his hip pressed to mine, his chest sliding against mine, his fingers tracing from wrists to forearms and then framing my face. He held me in place, lips near my ear. When he kissed the sensitive spot, my breath shuddered. "You're so beautiful," he whispered, moving his mouth to mine.

Oh.My.Goodness!!! That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the steam written in this story! There is so much more to this story than the romance but I don't want to give anything away. Stay away from spoilery reviews if you can. This story is best discovered by reading it yourself.

I highly recommend this story, just writing this review makes me want to read it all over again! I'm definitely reading anything else written by Tammara Webber.

Mary Rachel I'm really excited about this book we should put
It upon the poll for SM I think it's going to steam the house!

♥Rachel♥ Lol Mary! Steam the house, huh?! We should suggest it for SMC. :)

Mary I think so too Rach ;)

♥Rachel♥ I just put it on the suggestions. It doesn't come out until May 25th.

Mary Yayay... May 25th isn't a bad thing considering
How many more books we need to read ;)

♥Rachel♥ Seriously! I have enough books to last me into the next year without buying anything new!

Mary LMAO! I'm not that bad.. But I could do with 3 months straight
Read from my book library that are calling out my name!
Btw I finally got around to reading TMI

♥Rachel♥ You like? I haven't read the newest two. The one I left off at was supposed to be the end. I want to wait til she's completely done.

Brandie I just started this one today! So far so good!

♥Rachel♥ Oh Brandie, me and Jenn are starting this today. We can all compare notes! I'll look for your updates. :)

♥Rachel♥ Seems to me (view spoiler)

I think I'm going to quickly read Try Me today. Bethany said it's only 7 chapters so it probably won't take long. Is it okay to delay our TMI reading even more? We have SMC's read that I'm going to start tonight.

message 25: by Jenn (new) - rated it 5 stars

Jenn Lol yes it's fine. I'm not chomping at the bit to start. So I can hang a few more days ;)

Heidi Hi Rachel, I actually tried to comment on the blog but it wouldn't let me...who knows...anyway I really enjoyed your review and now I am dying to know what the twist is and who she picks. It is awesome when you find a great self pubbed book! That was my exoerience with Cornerstone a couple of weeks ago. This is the second five star review I have read, so I am definitely going to check this out. Thanks for sharing. Sorry I couldn't leave this on the blog :(

♥Rachel♥ Heidi, this is so good!! I hope you read it soon! I'll have to look up your review for Cornerstone. I don't think I've heard about it. :)

♥Rachel♥ Thank you Sam1 Even if you're not a contemporary romance lover, this book is AMAZING! I loved it and I think it's been getting a lot of 5 star reviews all over the place. Hope you enjoy it if you do pick it up. :)

Christina Wow great review !!! You wrote this so well. Now I will have to read this book! It seems like there is alot of sexual tension...I love those kind of books.

Sara Love your review! I was so shocked at how much I LOVED this book! I am a self proclaimed Anti_YA reader but this book SO wasn't YA at all! I am glad you didn't post any spoilers, I didn't in my review either everyone just needs to read it and see how great it is. I cannot believe how much this book made me blush! The scenes with J&L were so intense!

♥Rachel♥ Thank you Sara! I'm so glad you loved it as much as I did. This is one of those stories that a spoiler would really ruin the story. I loved finding out on my own. I LOVED the chemistry between J & L!!! Very steamy. I'm going to check out your review. :)

Hilda Absolutely BEAUTIFUL review, Rachel! You make me want to reread this book again! <3 OMG, Lucas! Love him to infinity LOL! x)
