New Adult Contemporary Romance
By Rachel Curtis
Released January 17, 2014
I am not a slut, although I’ve been called one often enough. Yeah, I spent three months screwing one of my college professors, but I was crazy about the guy. Then he broke up with me.
I am not a bitch, although people like to say I am. I kept our relationship secret. I’m not responsible for telling the university administrators about it, but a lot of students still blame me for getting their favorite professor fired.
I am not a drama queen, although everyone thinks I am now. When I got a few nasty messages, I just deleted them. When I got the threat, I assumed it was someone being stupid. I still think that’s all it was. My parents worry, though, so they hired me a bodyguard. Now Jack follows me around, intimidating everyone who approaches me and looking obnoxiously hot.
This is what I am. I’m Chloe. I’m a twenty-year-old art history major. Kind of shy, although I pretend not to be. Stubborn enough to stay here for my senior year, even though everyone hates me.
And I’m stuck with Jack.
He calls me “Princess,” but I’m not a princess either.
This book is written in alternating point of views, which I love. I feel like I really get to know the characters better and this book is no exception. I loved Chloe's spunky attitude. Between her sarcastic comments, bits of advice, and her top 10 reasons lists, I felt like her and I were old friends have a great conversation about her life. It was perfect. She definitely isn't a strong character, she lets the other students opinion of her run her life. But she is a likable character.
And then there's Jack. He's her bodyguard, so of course he's built, hot and all overbearingly alpha. There's something up with Jack. All along, he is saying that he wants to be with Chloe but there is something holding him back, something devastating from his past. Protecting Chloe is his job, but given his feelings, it's more like his need.
Overall, this was a good book. I can't wait to for the next one, the ending sets up what could be a very interesting turn of events.
