Blair Ackerman is a girl with crazy hair and a bad attitude. She's a girl who doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She's a girl with only a duffel bag and a car named Nancy to her name, and that's okay by her. She's tough because she has to be. Nobody gets inside her head, nobody gets inside her heart.

Silver is everything she's never wanted. He's a good guy, a smart guy, a guy who's never met a girl like her before. He's the kind of guy who loves history, who laughs at his own jokes, who kisses like a sinful dream. He's the kind of guy who might just break down her walls and get inside her heart and make her feel.

Too bad he's forbidden.

Because when Blair's mom dies and she's sent to live with the father she's never met and a family that doesn't want her, Blair and Silver cross paths in ways they never could have imagined, and they discover that even though they know they should, they can't quite bring themselves to stay apart.

Opposites really do attract.

    I’m not one to sit and read a book from end to end in just one day, but with this book I just couldn’t stop reading! Throughout the entire book I felt the emotions of the characters and as if I was there with them the entire time. I will definitely be reading more by this author!
  • Great story and characters

    Steamy storyline and so easy to connect with the characters. The storyline wasn’t too far fetched which I could appreciate. Blair is sassy, stubborn and true to herself, and a great heroine. Reason for 4 stars was due to the amount of grammar/spelling/punctuation errors throughout. Super noticeable and sometimes distracting from the story.
