Avery wanted a fresh start at a new college. Running late to her first class she plows into Cam. Her friends say now she should let him plow her. Cam also happens to live right down the hall. But Avery doesn't date. She has never had a boyfriend and wants to just be friends. A terrible past is holding her back. Cam begins asking her out constantly for months. Avery wants to give him a chance even though she is scared for anyone to know her past. She thinks they will never look at her the same.
I loved Cam. He was never a bad boy or a player. Sweet and dedicated to Avery from the beginning. Avery constantly pushes him away but he is always there for her. He is careful and takes their relationship slow. Cam waits for Avery to trust him. He is a bit cocky but in a fun and joking way, most of the time. I mean he is sexy and he knows it. LOL But he only wants Avery and always says the right things. Like everyone he also has made mistakes but he owns them. He also has the cutest pet ever. ;-)
Avery has a devastating past that was really difficult to read about. It was completely understandable why it would be so hard for her to move on especially since her awful parents never spoke of her problems and never got her any help. They just pretended it never happened. That made things so much worse and so sad. Opening up about something like that would not be easy so I understood why it took her so long to let Cam in. Not to mention all the harassment she receives and everyone in high school ditched her. This fresh start in college was good for her because she has friends and Cam who support her. It is still a hard journey but they helped her work through it.
I've read many new adult books lately so the plot wasn't super unique but the characters and writing were addicting and fun. Even though it deals with a lot of difficult issues I loved the banter between Cam and Avery and the way their relationship started out with friendship. Spending quality time with Raphael and Chinese food with milk. I'm with Avery in that Cam is extremely gross to like milk with Chinese food. The secondary characters were so much fun also. I loved Can's roommate Ollie, and Avery's friends Jacob and Brit. There were fun scenes on top of all the emotional ones so the pacing was perfect. I'm a big fan of books with characters overcoming obstacles to get to their happy ending and this is a great book for any new adult romance fan.
"That could've become the best ice breaker in history. Like you two could fall madly in love and you get to tell everyone how you plowed him before he actually plowed you."
"I froze as a guy stumbled out, laughing as he set a tortoise--what the fuck?--on the floor. The thing stuck its head out, looked around, and then disappeared into its shell."
"You want to say yes, but you're just not ready."
My jaw dropped.
"It's okay." His grin turned cocky. "I'm a lot to handle, but I can assure you, you'll have fun handling me."
"Don't you have anyone else to bother?"
"There are a shit ton of people that I could reward with my presence, but I chose you."
"Well, that was... really sort of perfect."
"I'm really sort of perfect," he replied, gently untangling my legs. He sat me on the floor and I would've fallen right over if he hadn't held on. "Everyone else knows that. You're just a little slow on the uptake."
