As soon as I heard about this book I needed to have it like immediately it sounded like the perfect blend of love . corny lines . some angst & obviously a really hot lead character!
The author Emma Hart was completely new to me so I went into this book prepared for anything and I was so glad I took that dive! Hart is really a very good writer and I enjoyed this story so much!
Basically you have the heroine Maddie who is in college and her and her friends get this idea to try and get her (Maddie) to basically hit it and quit it with Mr. I'm so gorgeous Braden (which by the way I absolutely love that name ;] ) while making him fall in love with her and obviously in true book nature the same plan is going on between Braden and his friends.
I have to say in the beginning I was a little confused with all the names of each of their friends it seemed they all sounded alike and that there was too many but about a quarter into the book I FINALLY got all their names remembered to their imaginary faces I gave them! (Now I know why the hero/heroine in books are basically friendless) But even with that it was a terrific story!
The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars was because of the end .. don't worry all there is no cliffhanger or anything but there was no real epilogue it was more like they live happily ever after.. for now and thats just not my thing. If I am reading a story I want the amazing happy ending where i'll never question if they are still together in the future (I KNOW! I KNOW! IM A PSYCHO!) Don't get me wrong I still loved the ending and the entire story but I wish we would have gotten a glimpse of the future!
Now as you will all come to know... I LOVE a possessive/jealous book boyfriend and Braden did it just so wonderfully! He wasn't crazy at all he was more like a typical normal human being which is actually quite a change but I loved every single second of it!
I don't like to give away spoilers so I'll end it there but you guys really should go out and read this story its very well written and an amazing story and its not TOO much angst so if you want to get away from some of the crazy-town books right now this would be absolutely perfect for you! I look forward to more books from this author ! & Games #2 *squeeeeeeeeeee
So if you haven't yet go go go go buy it now!
