Autumn is the quintessential nerdy college freshman. She has spent her school years being bullied because she was the smartest kid, wore glasses, has curly hair and is painfully socially inept. She has gone off to college with her best friend Evie. Autumn is not ready for how her life is about to change.
Hunter Bane is sex on a stick. All the girls want him. His body is sculpted perfection, his face is so beautiful angels sigh looking at him and his attitude is pure unadulterated bad boy. As he watches Autumn enter her dorm, he is mesmerized by her. He must know who she is. He follows her to her room and returns her bracelet and is appy to see his room is right next to hers.
These two clash at every opportunity. Autumn finds Hunter irresistible and yet she worries at the secrets he is hiding. Every time she sees him he looks more stressed and physically damaged. Hunter desperately wants to hold onto the one good thing in his life… his Leafy ( Autumn). However being close to her has put her in the path of some very bad people.
Watching these two struggle through their relationship while fighting the world around them is pure heaven. Clarissa weaves a tale of two people who need each other yet find themselves repeatedly pushed apart. I found myself wondering just what fate was going to throw at them next and not wanting to put the book down until I got the answers.
