When everything starts spinning out of control . . .

Three years into college, Tressa Oliver’s life is a nonstop party. She’s skating by in her classes, and there’s no shortage of drinking, dancing, and general hell-raising. The only aspect that hasn’t been much fun: She can’t shake the toxic jerks that always seem to gravitate toward her.

It will take someone totally wrong

The prospect of a hot, nerdy guy falling for a popular, party girl always grabs my attention so Tressa and Trent’s romance held all kinds of promise for me! I did really enjoy this story; it was a sweet and slow burn romance (once Tressa pulled her head out!).

Tressa was really hard to like at first, BUT I think that was the point. She was a party girl and didn’t really take her college studies seriously, and so she was falling behind rapidly. Instead of buckling down she shoves those concerns a
3.5 stars. Took me until well over the halfway point before I warmed up to Tressa. Trent saved the book for me.

I've really enjoyed this series - the first book in the series, No Attachments, is one of my favorite NA books ever. This final installment in the Woodfalls Girls series was a fun, quick read.

Tressa is a major party girl. She's known for being wild, wreaking havoc every where she goes, even from a young age. She spends her weekends with her roommates jumping from frat party to frat part

My Thoughts:

I'm really sad that the Woodfalls Girls Series has come to an end. Ashton, Brittany, and Tressa are three characters that I will really miss. Ms. King can write steamy and sweet romance beautifully.

In Contradictions, we get Tressa's love story. Tressa has always been known as the fun party girl. She loves pranks, and is a very social and friendly person. While away at Maine State College, she lives with her room mate and good friend Cameo, and they can constantly be found partying wi

A hell-raising party girl and a geeky guy? Hell to the yes! I’m all for that combo, so I was excited to read Contradictions. I did like it, but it was missing that something that would set it over the edge for me.

Tressa was my girl from the beginning. I love her funny, sarcastic attitude, and how she’s a big prankster. She starts slacking off her senior year of college, putting more time into partying than studying. When there is a tragic accident during a frat party, it sets in motion some

I am such a fan of Tiffany King and her NA world but I sadly have to say that this book is my least favorite of Tiffany King. I liked the idea of the story but I didn't relate to the characters at all.

While reading the book, I basically had my lip curled in aggravation for Tress throughout. There were a few brief moments that I saw something I could like, then once again the shallow Tressa reappears. Tressa is su

3.5/5 stars

As a big fan of the Woodfalls Girls series, I was thrilled to finally get Tressa's book. Having briefly met Tressa in the previous two novels, we know she is incredibly loyal to her friends and is also a bit of a wild child.

My favorite part of the novel is watching Tressa's development from a straight up partier to more of a straight edge focused on her studies. Unfortunately for Tressa, she had to hit rock bottom before realizing her life is not as easygoing as she once thought. It
Nerd boy meets party girl in this super sweet love story. Tressa Oliver is your typical college party girl: she goes to classes but only gives enough just to pass , non-stop drinking and partying are always on her social calendar, and there’s definitely no shortage of boys. When that life comes crashing down, Tressa is doused in the reality that either she changes or she’s out of college.

Trent Larson is everything that Tressa isn’t used to. He prefers studying over partying, he’s quiet, and kind

A story of finding a love you weren’t even looking for. Young, fresh, and full of surprises, Tiffany King’s new novel Contradictions is well titled. Party girl Tressa meets her match in nerdy tech genius Trevor. A witty and sweet story that will warm your heart.

Tressa is in her third year of college. She is the life of the party, and her life seems to land her in the fast lane. A fraternity hazing gone awry hits her hard, and she starts to re-evaluate where her life is headed. She finds herself

I fell in love with Tressa in No Attachments and have been on pins and needles waiting for Contradictions ever since. Before kids and marriage settled me down I was a lot like Tressa. Always partying and not caring about much else, so I was really excited to see how her story would play out, and Ms. King did not disappoint!

I'm not going to lie, at first I was really worried about the whole book being in Tressa's POV. I don't always need dual POV but for some reason when it comes to new adult I f

I LOVE nerd/geek heroes when they are well written, and this was a total WIN for me! There are SO many geeky and adorable moments, especially when they each take turns stepping outside of their comfort zone for one another, that results in scenes that are the perfect trifecta of humorous, tender, and panty melting! Not to mention many laugh out loud moments with Tressa's pop culture references and Trent's quick, dry, literal wit.

Tressa Oliver has always been wild. Even as a kid she stirred up trouble in her quiet town. As she enters her third year in college she has no plans of stopping. Her life consists of non-stop parting, in fact she is quite famous for it. Life is short so have fun is her motto, and her rapidly declining grades are a reflection of exactly how much fun she is having. Her wild ways also attract loser boyfriends and Tressa has just let go of another one when she starts t

Contradictions by Tiffany King is the third book in the Woodfalls Girls series. It is my favorite book in the series. It was an honest look at how uncontrolled events in life can completely change one’s outlook on life. It can change the course of one’s life, open one’s eyes to life’s realities, and make one re-evaluate their own life. Not only is Contradictions a heartwarming romance, it is also a powerful story of change.

The party girl and the geek. Polar opposites, unrequited love, a life altering tragedy and the struggles to become a person you might actually be proud of...Yeah...Contradictions...was an intense, funny, sweet and heart warming read that had me in tears and heartbroken, frustrated and in the end completely proud of who the characters became.

The quick of it is that Trent and Tressa are from the same home town and he's had a crush on her for quite some time

CONTRADICTIONS finally gives us a chance to see into snarky Tressa's life of parties and good times, and as you would expect, it turns out to not be as fun as she makes it seem.

Tressa is happy coasting by in school by the seat of her pants. As long as she scores an invite to the latest big party, that's all that matters. Until that's not all that matters anymore. Her grades are in the toilet and in order to remain at school, she needs to fix them but she has no idea how. Enter Trent James, hot

I had never read Tiffany King before so I was really excited to read Contradictions, especially since I love nerdy romance. Tressa is a troublemaker who only cares about frat parties and pranks. Even though she worked hard at a community college so she could get into Maine State she doesn’t seem to care too much about academics now that she’s in. After taking part in a fraternity hazing that goes very, very wrong Tressa finds herself on probation. She was close to failing most of her classes any

Tressa Oliver is in her final year of college but she really doesn’t care about school or class work. How she managed to get to her senior year with passing grades is a mystery to her but she’s going with the flow. She loves to party and has a great time. She knows that she’s failing out of school but she can’t seem to make herself care a whole lot about it.

Then…tragedy strikes the college and a student dies. Tressa really doesn’t know the boy who died but she had spoken to him right before it h

Contradictions is one of my favorite books in the Woodfalls Girls series.

Read in just one sitting, I could not put this book down, I was entranced and utterly absorbed in the story of Tressa and Trent.

Tressa is in College, a party girl who's grades are failing, after a fraternity hazing goes wrong she is put on academic probation and is given a set amount of time to improve her grades, Trent is from her hometown, a geek who has had a crush on Tressa for years, he is assigned to be her tutor to h

Contradictions by Tiffany King is my favorite of the Woodfalls Girls novels. Every character felt real to me; like I could cast the book with people from my own college experiences. I could relate to their struggles and to the problems that come with new adulthood responsibilities. As for the romantic relationship addressed, I love this take on the beauty and the geek, with honest insecurities plaguing both of them. The people, the struggles and the relationships felt familiar to me, like a memo ...more

I received a digital copy from Berkley in exchange for an honest review.

Contradictions was a really wonderful story. I enjoyed the mental and emotional connections we got to explore in Trent and Tressa because their dynamic relationship was a little shaky at times but really sweet even with the innocence and the times of doubt. I do like the opposites attract type relationship but they weren't all that different once we got to see more of Tressa and Trent. I really enjoyed reading this story.
Catherine  Wright (Cat's Guilty Pleasure)
I love the whole opposites attract aspects of the story, I can relate to it on a personal level. The emotional connection between Trent and Tressa was written so beautifully, it made my heart warm. There was innocence and doubt between them, but it worked out perfectly in my opinion. I have to say that Trent is by far my favorite. This is a truly wonderful story.

I was given a copy by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've read all but two books by Tiffany King.. So far I've loved every single one.
She's always kept herself away from Trent... they're too different. She's a party girl, he's the good scholar. She avoids him like the holocaust - until fate throws them together. It's funny how all their contradictions bring them closer together

I'm completely reading this backwards, starting with this one but to hell with it. I absolutely loved this! I'm swooning on most of it. I mean, who isn't gonna fall for an opposites attract kind of story?

The writing was fun, I loved Tressa's sarcasm. Oh! The nicknames! And man, I went all dreamy on Trent.

I'm moving to book 2 then 1. I'm gonna read this in the opposite order. :)

So good!

I love this series and I am sad that this is the last one. I loved the reference to No-attachments and Misunderstandings at the end of Chapter 13, so clever. If you're a Tiffany King fan, then I suggest you read this series!!
I haven't picked up a Tiffany King book in quite awhile. I definitely enjoyed this one. Actual rating closer to 3.5.

Review to come!

Tiffany King's books get better and better. Contradictions is my favorite so far in the Woodfalls series. I finally got my wish for a nerd/geek hero in Trent. Full review to come.

Tressa Oliver is a bad girl, drinking, dancing, partying and playing all of the time. She blows off her classwork and finds more enjoyment in hanging out with her roommates and participating in social events than passing her classes.

Trent Lawson is a handsome nerd who is too serious, too boring, all work and no play. Tressa and Trent are obviously incompatible, per Tressa, although the adorable attraction between the two is undeniable. In this fun and easy read, not one that causes too much thou
Bookosaurus (A book a day keeps reality away)
This one was just okay. Trent's character was all tell, no show. The author couldn't stop talking about how smart and nerdy yet incredibly swoon-worthy he was but I couldn't find enough meat in his character. It was not fleshed-out properly and I found his character arc severely under-developed though Tressa's character growth was brilliant. Love story was tepid but overall, it was a decent read. ...more
well, my version of the book for some reason contained parts of another book.... strange. I really had a hard time liking Tressa. She acted at times like a spoiled snot.
