“Nothing I have ever tried has given me the thrill like taking something that isn't mine does.”
Lily is eager to make a better life, for not only herself, but for the brother who raised her. When her scholarship is revoked, she resorts to desperate measures to pay for tuition, trying to keep her life on track—the same measures she promised herself she'd never take again—and fears the consequences. Things only get more complicated when a deal is offered that is almost too good to be true.
In walks the distraction: Justin. An annoyingly good-looking guy who pushes her to not give up on her dreams, even when things don't go as planned. Despite Lily's best efforts, Justin falls into a world of fast cars, fast money, and fast crooks.
After all, habits are hard to break.
There’s something carnal about being so attracted to someone, something that makes me want to leap out of my skin because I can’t handle what my body is telling me.
This book definitely took me by surprise. I knew going into this that it was a new adult book by a debut author, and I assumed I would like it and that it would be good.
But I LOVED it. These are absolutely the kind of new adult novels I like, and this one even threw in some extra action and suspense. SO MUCH FUN.
So Lilly is in a tough spot. She has tuition to pay, and money is tight, so she goes back to doing some super sketchy stuff that she used to – no she is not a stripper and/or hooker, she is a bit more badass than that- in order to pay for college, without having to burden her brother. Along the way, she meets a guy and even more trouble ensues (doesn’t it always with guys?)
This was so much fun. I seriously love Lilly. I found it so easy for me to associate with her personality, it was almost like she was based on me. Lol… she is a firecracker. But she is also a handful of trouble.
I LOVE JUSTIN. Damn. He might be a new book boyfriend. And I love them together. I love their sense of humor and their chemistry.
And this book had a bit of action! Speaking of action, I usually tend to see a twist coming a mile away in new adult books, and I had some guesses about this one, but I was TOTALLY WRONG. It didn’t hit me until it was happening. I think I felt as confused as Lilly did. Like I seriously felt her shock. I was surprised. And confused. And angry. And sad. I got completely absorbed in the story and loved every second of it. I cannot wait to read more by Rachel in the future!
