Fight for your dreams. Fight for your life. Fight for love.
Nerdy girl Autumn Blakewood is the prime example of a goody two-shoes. She studies every night, is never late for class, and always follows the rules. She has never felt the need to step out of her comfort zone. That is, until she meets Hunter.
Hunter Bane is a cocky, confident bad-boy, who’s nothing but trouble. He’s a dangerous distraction to everyone around him. Sexy and strong, Hunter enjoys the swooning effect he has on women. Especially those who aren’t used to attention, like Autumn.
Autumn finds it hard not to give into Hunter’s advances, even though it all seems like a game to him. Trying to understand him is impossible, because he shrouds himself in mystery.
What she doesn’t know is that Hunter has more baggage than anyone should have to carry. When she discovers he’s in an illegal frat club to save the one person that matters to him, Autumn realizes this could mean the end of her undeniable connection to him. Even their lives are at risk.
But it’s too late to turn back now …

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
While I enjoyed this book enough to read it in one weekend, I still miss something to make it stand out for me.
Having a main character who is a nerd and quite shy when it comes to interacting with guys is delightful. I smiled a few times when Autumn met Hunter at the beginning, but at some point I found her to be too cheesy too fast. And I think I would have enjoyed it more if she was cautious with Hunter and with all the things she was starting to learn about everything. For me, it didn’t feel real and I couldn’t feel anything for them both.
Also, and maybe it’s just me, but Autumn seemed quite a bit too different from who she was during the first few chapters. I didn’t see the real evolution, just the result of it. I would have felt better toward her if the author would have put more of an emphasis on her journey instead of having several characters claim that Autumn changed. I’m not buying it all that much.
Then, Hunter is not a character I like all that much. Unfortunately. Even when the author described through Autumn’s eyes how hot he is I couldn’t ‘feel’ it. I had a hard time visualizing their connection and it lasted a long while. Even now that I’m finished with the story I have still mixed up feelings about them.
The plot itself is very interesting and different from what I’m used to read in the genre and category. I don’t want to ruin your reading experience so I won’t go into details, but it’s something I enjoyed even if I wasn’t exactly surprised.
I enjoyed reading this book, it’s just a story I will not remember in a couple of months. I was expecting something more and maybe it’s my fault because I’m pretty sure a lot of readers will absolutely love this book.
And just a prop for the author who writes dialogues with a good rhythm. It’s not always that easy.
I will read more books from this author.
Have you read this book? What do you think about Hunter? Is he your new book boyfriend?
