When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she's single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life. Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex's frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night--but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound. 
 
Jag har verkligen börjar älska (!) den nya kategorin New Adult. Den här boken handlar om hur man tar sig igenom ett jobbigt avslutat förhållande och hur man fortsätter leva. Historien är inte lika bra som många andra jag har läst de senaste veckorna, och det har gjort att jag inte har tänkt nämnvärt på boken. Det är trots allt det enda jag tycker gör en favoritbok till en speciell bok: att man kommer ihåg den; att man avgudar den! 
 
Det här är inget om boken speciellt, utan mer om kategorin New Adult; men nästan alla böcker har en huvudperson med en död förälder. Är det inte huvudpersonen är det en annan huvudkaraktär som är med mycket och som påverkar handlingen. 
 
Den är egentligen ganska genomskinlig. Jag listade ut direkt när hon blev "räddad" av Lucas, att de skulle få något tillsammans. Som vanligt får man också följa deras personliga problem och spännande försöka lista ut vad som har hänt med dem som har gjort att dem blivit som dem är. Men det är ingen dålig bok, tvärtom, jag gillar den faktiskt väldigt mycket. Den var underbar att läsa och väldigt beroendeframkallande. Jag i princip sträckläste den och njöt av varje stund.

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.
