A new love will test the boundaries of passion between a privileged boy next door and the tattooed, blue-haired girl who helps him embrace his wild side…

Nate has developed quite a playboy reputation around campus. It’s not that he doesn’t respect or trust women; he doesn’t trust himself. The men in Nate’s family are prone to abusive behavior—a dirty secret that Nate’s been running from his entire life—so Nate doesn’t do relationships. But he can’t help himself around one girl…

Jessie is strong, independent, and works at a tattoo parlor. Nate can’t resist getting close to her, even if it’s strictly a friendship. But it doesn’t take long for Nate to admit that what he wants with Jessie is more than just friendly.

With Jessie, he can be himself and explore what he’s always felt was a terrifying darkness inside him. Even when Nate begins to crave her in a way that both shocks and horrifies him, Jessie still wants to know every part of him. Testing their boundaries together will take a trust that could render them inseparable… or tear them apart.

My Review:

I LOVE THIS BOOK!  Let me repeat I LOVE THIS BOOK!  It encompasses everything a great book needs.  Love, Lust, Passion, Acceptance, Stretching Boundaries!  I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy Nate’s book I won’t lie.  Sometimes I really hate the player type guy that just jumps from one woman to the other and doesn’t worry about who he might be hurting in the process.  But Nate was so much more then the way he presents himself.  Though the first part of the book will probably make you cringe, Nate’s character grows and develops into something real and honest and believable.  His fears make sense and I felt for him in a big way in this book.

Jessie is AWESOME!  I just love her, she really makes this book special.  She’s just a fantastic heroine all around.  She knows what she wants and she goes after it.  I loved the photography aspect and the artsy side of her character.  It really and truly lent to how well rounded this girl is.  The way she guides Nate and makes him understand the difference between what he wants and desires and his fears endeared me to her.  She was patient and kind with Nate. 

Overall this book was probably my second favorite in the series.  I loved them all but this one really was quite a special read for me.  I truly adore Nate and Jessie.  I give this one 5 stars it had everything I love in a good read and then some!  I highly recommend this one. 

Mother, wife, reader, dreamer. Christina lives in the Midwest with her husband and son–her two favorite guys. She’s addicted to lip gloss, salted caramel everything, and believes in true love and kissing, so writing romance novels has become a dream job.
