Publisher's Summary

My plan was perfect. My friend needed a date, and my brother's best friend was single. Problem solved.

Until I saw Jaeger for the first time in years, and sparks flew in the wrong direction.

Jaeger has grown up and bulked up. But that shouldn't matter because I have the perfect life. Really.

Only, my plans are beginning to unravel, and now, visions of Jaeger's hard abs, broad shoulders, and intense green eyes fill my head.

I should hold back in case my friend is interested. Or in case of a million other reasons. But if Jaeger isn't willing to play by the rules, I don't think I can, either.

"Addictive and marvelously refreshing." (Rumpled Sheets Blog)

"Realistic characters and smart writing." (Lauren Layne, USA Today best-selling author)

Happy ending

Lots of unforeseen twists, the ups and downs she encounters in her life are frustrating and believable, but it all ends happily ever after, just as I like.

First book of 250+ I truly struggled to finish

If you are over 25 in my opinion you are too old for this book. I out loud groaned and eye rolled more times than I can count. The supposedly smart lead woman is immature, unbearably dramatic and jumps to the very worst conclusions on the flimsiness of "evidence". The lead was so completely insufferable that I truly struggled to finish the book. I wish I could say it got better. I was going to continue in the series, but I don't have that many eye rolls in me.

Cute but very problematic in various ways

The beginning storyline was cute but it began to drag on after the author repeatedly added new plots when the book could have already finished. It would have been better if it was a little shorter and she had used other plots in a separate book.

Secondly, there is a large amount of content surrounding sexual abuse. Two women and two men are sexually attacked. Then the people who attacked them never received any punishment. The women just pushed aside their valid feelings about being almost raped and never told any authorities about it when it would have made sense for them to do that. If you are sensitive to that topic, I would listen with caution because that topic is repeatedly brought up.

Tween drama set in post-college setting

I found the story very superficial and slow-moving. The narrator contributed to that with her over-the-top characterizations; if I wanted to listen to something like this I would hang out with middle schoolers.

Great story!

Younger crowed but, still a great story with great writing. Narrator is spot on. Wish they had more of a dual story but, I can't wait to see how it progresses.

Young adult romance

This one wasn’t my cup of tea, but that’s not the authors fault. It’s a well written young adult romance about figuring out your adult life before heading to graduate school.

Fun semi steamy rom com

She has taken a summer job at a casino with her best friend Gen. Though she and her boyfriend of two years will be apart, they know they're going to make it work. Cali has a mission that she's working for. Matching up her single best friend with an amazing guy. Right off the bat she meets a couple potentials. One of which, includes her brothers best friend from high school, Jaeger. He's amazingly good looking, sweet, kind and caring, and was on the way to the Olympics before his injury to which resulted in not only his abrupt leave from the sport but losing his long term girlfriend as well. That means he is fair game. What more could a girl ask for? It's a no brainer, right? That is until he and Cali start to spend more time together. Their friendship quickly escalates leaving Cali in an awkward position. Suddenly things start to fall to pieces. She hasn't heard from Eric much at all, things go south unexpectedly at the casino, and she's second guessing her plans to attend Harvard in the fall. Can Cali pull herself together and get things figured out?
I read this book in audio version. I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was a really fun book. The narrator did a pretty good job and there was some twists in the story line that kept it going. There was even a few steamy moments in the book. All in all it was a pretty good book. I rate this ⭐⭐⭐⭐.

Say Names Correctly PLEASE!

The narrator mispronounces the name Jaeger a million times and it’s driving me crazy. She say JAY-ger instead of YAY-ger. I cannot listen to the rest of the book...you can’t be in love with someone you’ve know forever AND NEVER LEARN TO SAY THEIR NAME PROPERLY. It would be like someone repeatedly calling Jose JOE -say every other sentence.

YES!!

Love this story!
Seeing this book in Audio made my day!
I felt like I had taken a trip down memory lane, having been a fan of the storyline and characters when I read it the first time around.
The narration really brought this book to life, adding more depth and emotion!
I'm excited to start the second one!

Cali and Jaeger!

Cali and her best friend Gen are working at a casino for the summer in Lake Tahoe before Cali starts law school at Harvard in the fall even though she has questions if that is truly what she wants to do. She has been dating Eric for the past two years however he is using their separation as a reason to end their relationship without manning up and telling her.

Jaeger was best friends with her brother while they were in school. He had dreams of being an Olympic skier however an injury ended his career as well as his relationship with his girlfriend Kate. He is now living in Lake Tahoe and what begins as friends escalates into more but not without overcoming some obstacles along the way and that was before his past came crashing into his present and turned everything upside down.

This story has a few twists, a lot of drama, some angst and no shortage of emotion. I enjoyed the way the narrator managed to get you emotionally invested in the story.
