Synopsis: INTENSE. DANGEROUS. ADDICTIVE.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.

2 / 5 stars
"Intense. Dangerous. Addictive." They're definitely a good choice of words for this book, its odd I should say that considering I rated it rather low. I didn't want to put it down, not so much because I was enjoying it but more because I was just left with so much whiplash I wanted it over and done with. I've thought long and hard in how I should tackle this review, but in the end decided to just share the following image of my status up dates as I know they kept a few people entertained.
