From the beginning I was mesmerized by this couple. Christian and Maize are both powerful, stubborn, young adults, but they blazed with a passion that kept me turning the pages long into the night.
Christian and Maize have a history dating back to high school and not a good history at that. Even though they’ve been attending the same college for the past four years they have been able to avoid one another until Christian’s football injures Maize.
The story weaves together so beautifully and also sinfully…cause whew…the steamy times were A.Ma.Zing!! There is almost nothing better than hawt, and I’m talking hawt bedroom times, mixed in with a little giggling and sweet emotion. Christian and Maize brought it all and I was there for every moment.
These two both admit they are stubborn and work hard to get what they want. From the very beginning they both admit that neither want a relationship and continue to circle back to this point throughout the book, even when they might be feeling something more. Let me bring up that stubborn point again. I love how hard they try not to fall for each other, while doing that very thing.
Fall in love with this smexy couple and turn pages late into the night like I did. It’s totally worth it!
A regimented life on the track is the reason I’m a Kingston College scholarship student.
But a wayward football—thrown by Christian Moore, the rich guy who ruined my reputation in high school—threatened to rob me of my future.
Desperation drove me to do something foolish.
Something that put my body in the hands of the guy I hate.
I didn’t want to like his touches. I didn’t want to crave him.
But everything in the way he devoured me turned me inside out and made me forget this was just a game.
Now I fear he’s going to ruin me again…in ways there will be no coming back from.
