One small town boy, one girl who wants more, one roll in the hay…
Hooking up with your high school crush is a bad idea, a really bad idea. It was only supposed to be one night, one brief departure from my real life, but nothing ever works out exactly the way you plan.
Colton Waters was everything from my past that didn’t fit into my present, so why did he have to show up at my college and pledge the one frat I couldn’t avoid?
Because nothing is ever meant to happen just once. At least not the life changing things that mean the difference between falling apart and falling in love.
I think one of my favorite types of romance is the small town ones. I think it’s because I can relate (somewhat) most to them and living in small town as well. Mallory who is our main character in this, is a lot like myself. When I first started college I was DYING to get out the town I’m in now. (I did, but I don’t want to go into my personal life, but I’m back) ;)
Mallory is starting her sophomore year at college and along with her best friends in her sorority, Juliet (who was the main character in the first book) and Cara. Mallory has a one-night stand with Colt, one of her best friends in her home town. She has had a crush on him for a long time and regrets having the one night stand almost immediately so she goes back to school early. But now he’s showing up everywhere she turns.
I loved Mallory/Colt a lot more than Juliet/Reed. Again, it could possibly due to the fact that it’s a small town kind of romance. :) Plus, it could also be a factor of the author’s writing improving. I was completely engrossed in this story! I know with the first, I could put it down at parts and be okay not to continue immediately. This wasn’t the case for the sequel! (Now, don’t take it the wrong way- I LOVED the first as well).
I’m becoming a big fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy! These books are making me wish I had done the university route and did the whole sorority deal! But I’ll just live vicariously through these stories. ;)
I’m excited to continue this series at some point! I love these characters and have become very attached!
