After enduring an abusive childhood and having her heart broken by the only boy she trusts, Alexis White vows to never let anyone hurt her again. She’s left her troubled past behind and starts a new life at college. For the past seven years, her social calendar has been filled with frat parties, drinking, and meaningless sexual hook-ups. Until one night she unexpectedly gets saved by a tall, dark, and handsome French foreigner, Luc Blanchard. He’s charming, sophisticated, and very interested in Lexi, who has presented herself as a challenge when she tells him relationships aren’t her thing.

She finds herself sucked in by his own intriguing past. But everything changes when Dylan Priestley, the gorgeous boy who broke her heart and shattered her faith in friendship and love, suddenly shows up in her life again while back home on a visit. Dylan doesn’t hide his feelings for Lexi, but she can’t forgive or forget being betrayed by the one person she ever truly loved.

Despite the pain Dylan’s caused her, Lexi is once again drawn to the blue-eyed-boy-next-door. Will Lexi choose the man who seems perfect but hides a dark side or the boy who smashed her heart into pieces so many years ago?

This book is a nice read and the very first few chapters of it will make you want to read more. When I read the synopsis it’s already given that there will be a love triangle between the former lover and the new one. I’m also a sucker for this kind of setup wherein you have now finally decided to give a chance for yourself to have some serious relationship again but then your former lover just show up and disturb your heart again.

So the book is all about Alexis, she’s an independent woman who’s living with her best friend Anna away from her mother, away from her traumatic past.

Then here goes Dylan, he’s such a cute and nice guy! Such a gentleman and he always look after Alexis, giving her all she need and comforting her when bad things happened.

And then Luc, he’s a mature guy. He’s the Mr. Prim and Proper type of guy. He also has this French accent which made girls drool and throw themselves over him. Such a sexy man 😀

I kind of like Luc at first but then, after Dylan showed up. I just suddenly became Team Dylan, he’s so nice and for 8 long years he only has his eye for only one girl, Alexis. So that’s what made me like him more than Luc. And also the memories of Alexis and Dylan were so precious. And if you have read the book you’ll understand why I now despise Luc.

I gave this book 3.5 stars. I think I’ll read the book 2 this summer because the ending of this book is such a cliffhanger. I recommend this to all bookworms who love New Adult Genre and with this concept~ Check this out guys! 🙂


So there you have it! Thanks for reading guys and if you like this post don’t forget to click the ‘like’ button. Until the next post, bye! ❤ 🙂
