Still reeling from the death of her father, Alexandria hopes to find both independence and reprieve from her grief by heading off to college. However, life throws her a serious curveball when she discovers that her roommate isn’t quite the person she had imagined.
Smoking, tattoos, and street racing for fast cash are Elijah’s only interests. A harsh life has made him apathetic and indifferent, until Alexandria enters his life. When their paths cross, turmoil abounds.
An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love-will it be enough?
What do you get with two people who really want each other and don't know how to act on it and have so many different things stopping them? A great read!!!
Alex and Elijah were typical young college adults who had things in their life that made the strong but also vulnerable. Alex lost a part of her that kept her together. Her world was torn apart and she had to become an adult. Elijah's heart was so big and those who was in his inner circle felt that love, devotion, commitment as well as protection from him.
Elijah kept a lot of things to himself and his way of keeping people away so that he would hurt that was being an ass!! The relationship that he had with Alex showed us that his fight was limited with her. He pushed her away but couldn't stay away. Their relationship blossomed and it was wonderful to watch the everyday things happen. Neither of them were rich and they worked hard for everything that each of them had.
I recommend this book to everyone. It's raw and real. This isn't the typical rich kid book and you could really put yourself in their place!!
Nolan stood up as if he’d been bitten on his ass, liquid dripping down his head. It mostly soaked into his T-shirt, and what hadn’t, pooled around his feet. When he curled his fingers into a tight fist, I got up too, ready to step in. Surrounded by students, I knew he wouldn’t dare hit her, but regardless, Nolan was unpredictable.
Thankfully, he just growled and wiped himself with the napkins his friends gave him. “What are you looking at?” he shouted to the students at the nearby tables, then sat back down. Everyone around cowardly turned away. Lexy, on the other hand, was smiling behind the counter. As of right now, Alex was on my best friend list. After I let out a hearty laugh, I threw my trash away, turned my cap back the way it was, and headed toward Nolan’s table.
“Just get out of the shower, Nolan?”
Nolan pushed back his chair so fast that it slid across the floor. Putting his face right in front of mine, he gritted his teeth. “I hope I get to race you next time, pretty boy. I’m going to break your record.”
“Yeah, that’s what they all say. As far as the record book shows, I’m still number one. And next time I see you put your hands on Alex, I’ll break every one of your fingers.”
It took all four of his friends to stop him from coming after me. As he cursed
and flailed his arms, I casually strutted toward the door. Just before I exited, knowing his eyes were still on me and fuming with rage, I flipped him my favorite finger; the same finger I showed him many times before. I’m almost certain God created the middle finger longer on purpose, for assholes like him.
