Lily had a crush on her brother's best friend, Derek for years - which led to their steamy night ten months ago in her bedroom. Now, Lily is going off to college and she and Derek are still going strong. However, when school starts, she realizes it's hard to maintain a relationship while also trying to live her own life. She and Derek find themselves falling apart and Lily has no idea where to turn.

Enter Jack. Everything about him is wrong for Lily and she knows it, but she can't stop herself from being attracted to him. When things implode with Derek, it's Jack who is there to pick up the pieces - and show Lily an entirely new set of experiences she didn't know she was missing.

Of course, Jack has his own problems and once Lily gets to know him better, she starts to wonder if she can handle all of Jack. When Derek reappears on the scene, Lily is forced to decide between two guys and herself. Can she find herself without losing the people who matter in the process?

See where it began in the short story, "Her Brother's Best Friend."

My Thoughts:

Holy sweet baby jesus this is one HOT read!! 

Lily and Derek (her older brothers best friend) have finally fallen into the relationship that she has always dreamed of with him. She has spent most of her teen years wishing for the day she could be with Derek, and ten months ago it finally happened. They survived Derek's first year of college, as a couple, but now Lily is heading to college. She is determined to maintain her grades, juggle making new friends, and keep her relationship with Derek how it is. Initially it is going pretty well, but soon she realizes that she is becoming someone she never wanted to be. 

"It's happened; having a boyfriend now defines me. I suddenly feel slightly irritated at Derek, which is completely unreasonable..."

Soon she realizes that she isn't sure she can handle the distance, and the juggling. College brings a lot of feelings to surface for Lily, that she didn't even know she had. So when Jack walks into her life with a bang, Lily starts to second guess everything. 

" 'I have plenty of fun. I don't need anything else. Especially what you have in mind.'

'I'm Jack. 401. If you ever want to test that theory. See what fun is like, princess.' " 

As things with Derek fall apart, Lily finds herself wondering more and more about Jack. So once the opportunity is there for her to take a chance on him, she dives in. But, Jack has a huge set of demons from his past that he lets define him. He has never had a relationship, or anyone permanent in his life besides his two best friend. And he makes it clear in the beginning that he is not someone to fall in love with.

"I'm a broken mess, Lily. I can't be your Prince Charming."

As much as Lily would love to try to "fix" Jack, she knows that his past is way more that she can handle. But she is determined to try to be a constant in his life. But when Derek walks back into hers, she has to choose between these two guys. Does she go for the comfort of a friend and lover she's know for years? Or does she take a chance on  the broken bad-boy? Or maybe.. does she let them both go? In any of those ways, someone is getting hurt..

"Jack's been a great distraction, but this is Derek. I want to fix things, right? Why don't I know what I want?"

To be honest, Lily annoyed me in the start. She was a typical 18 year old girl, who came off with somewhat needy, and kind of whiney. But then I started to remember myself at 18 years old, I realized she was annoying me because she reminded me so much of myself. She goes into college, with a boyfriend, but wanting to find herself. She wants to be a the great student she always has been, but struggles to fit in with a new group of friends. Over the course of the book we watch Lily get stronger, as she finds a steady ground in the process. Now, I rarely go for the "good guy" in books involving a "bad boy", but I found myself rooting for Derek for about 70% of the book. Don't get me wrong, Jack definitely grew on me, in his typical bad boy fashion, but wow.. Derek is amazing. 

This is one of the hottest reads I have read in a while! Like seriously, fan yourself ladies, this one is GOOD. If you are looking for a book with a love story, bad boy/good guy, love triangle.. that also has UUUHmaazing sex scenes, go and grab this right this second!!

It is absolutely worth it ;)


He moves closer and already my body is responding. He smells like cigarettes and leather, two smells I never thought were sexy until now. I want to fall into his body, to be wrapped in his arms, and I fight it. It’s wrong and it makes no sense. I have everything I could ever want. Jack is just a distraction.
“I’m not that kind of girl,” I tell him.
He steps closer still and kisses my neck. His lips are soft, which is unexpected, and it sends a shiver through me. Jack brings me in to his chest. I can feel his heart beating; it’s quickening and it matches mine. I feel his tongue sliding down along my collarbone. There is nothing like this, but I need him to stop. And yet, I never want him to stop. “I’d love to know exactly what kind of girl you are.”
Almost as if they are not my own, my hands slip between his jacket and his shirt. The heat of his skin burns me even through the fabric of his clothes. His lips continue to travel downward, but as they reach the curve of my breasts, something in me wakes up. I tear myself away from him and back up a few inches.
“I have a boyfriend,” I repeat. “I can’t do this.”
“Where is he?” Jack asks. His eyes are burning.
“Where is your boyfriend? You’ve mentioned him before, but you run into me a lot for someone who’s so in love.”
