She’s careful, but wants to be reckless.
She’s cute, but wants to be sexy.
She’s innocent, but wants to be bad.
When ex-Olympic gymnast, Adaley Knight wakes on her eighteenth birthday she only has one wish, to leave the only town she’s ever known and start fresh.
Finding herself enrolled at a college across the globe, the once modest Adaley is almost unrecognizable. Her new persona dances on the wild side by sinking her teeth into the first bad boy she sees. The only problem is he’s not the least bit interested.
Ryle Benson, baseball extraordinaire and brooding campus bad-boy keeps everyone at an arms length. Things have never come easy for him and the last thing he needs is getting involved with any female.
The tables are reversed as she tries to be bad, tempting fate, and he tries to fight his. The push and pull is half the fun. But what happens when one pushes a little too hard?
Review By: Gina
This is the first book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed it. It was a cute, sweet read. I laughed, I cried, I felt joy and I felt sorrow.
Adaley was always the good girl so when she goes off to college, she was determined to be a little wild, a little reckless. While reading, I could see a little of myself in Adaley at that age. It was a little reminiscent.
Ryle was so mysterious to me. I was constantly asking myself why is he doing this and while is he acting this way. It kept me want to know more and more about him. I really loved the secondary characters, Tank and Zoe. Those two were hilarious and I hope to read more about them in the future.
Gah!!! The ending!!! It wasn't the ending I was hoping for but I can't fault the book for that. Even after having finished the book, I am still thinking about it so mission accomplished! The book had such a fantastic message of following your dream and never give up.
I really enjoyed the storyline. I kept wanting to know more about all the characters and it was entertaining. It switched character POV through the story but sometimes got confusing with the transitions, or lack there of, between characters. I would put this book in between YA and NA. There wasn't anything to heavy as far as sex goes. I did find some of the dialogue to be a little immature, but these are also 18-19 year olds so it kind of fits. If you are looking for a cute and funny read with a good message I would recommend this book.
