I think this was the book that got me hooked forever with contemporary romance. I was almost graduating high school, and I was on a really bad case of reader’s block. I remember going through amazon looking for something to read and going all “oh this looks promising!”.
I got it right is all I’m saying. Travis and Abby’s story is completely addictive. Especially to those girls who want a glimpse of what college life is like. I think I even tried to skip school so I could finish this book faster!
Abby is trying to leave her past behind being a gambler’s daughter and all. College is her fresh new start. That’s why Travis Maddox is completely bad news. College student by day and member of an underground fighting ring by night, is not exactly what she’s looking for. But the heart has a mind of its own, doesn’t it?
They become quite smitten with another and disguise their attraction through bets and challenges. Only to be united even more along the story. The truth is, Abby can’t handle Travis and his 24/7 charm. Travis finally met his match with strong headed and determined Abby. They fall hard for each other.
I’ve read a lot of books in my life, but I don’t think I’ve seen heroes that love so fiercely as Travis does. He just puts his heart out there despite it can be completely broken. Before you ask he sounds super hot when he constantly declares his love for Abby, not cheesy or gay at all!
“You know why I want you? I didn’t know I was lost until you found me. I didn’t know what alone was until the first night I spent without you in my bed. You’re the one thing I’ve got right. You’re what I’ve been waiting for, Pigeon.”Jamie McGuire
I’ve keep waiting for a movie announcement, since this book has been an amazing hit! If you haven’t read it yet, go get your copy like NOW! It’s THAT good.
