A New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller about a good girl dangerously drawn to the ultimate bad boy. The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn't drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants--and needs--to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby's resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis's apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

Review quote

"Characters, backstory, goals, motivations and conflicts are a great mix of angst, crippling inner demons and harsh real life. The pace has a rhythmic beat of two steps forward, four steps back as Abby and Travis grapple with their fierce attraction. Jamie McGuire writes with no holds barred. She writes with honest reflection on young people who move through life by their own rules...The entire cast lives hard, fights hard, and certainly loves hard. Deliciously intense."--USA Today

I briefly reviewed it on my booklikes blog page Yes, yes, yes and once more...YES!!!This book gave me sooo many emotions: I laughed, smiled, nearly cried, felt sad and really-really happy. It's soooo good! *__*I love main characters, 'cos they're natural, funny and down-to-earth, good friends and lovers and real DREAMERS. Reading of this book was like watching all episodes of your favourite TV series in 2 days:) So lively and vivid! I absolutely enjoyed it and recommend to you guys - check this book out. You won't be disappointed:)And Travis...despite all his madness and crazy stuff that he did, doing and will do, he's gorgeous!;) P.S. Looking forward to see the movie!show more
