This was a good book and it did keep me intrigued with all the drama, so much so that I stayed up all night long to finish the 2nd half of it to the end. (So Extremely tired at work now) It is about an abusive boyfriend that is so demeaning and cruel to his girlfriend regardless of how much she gives up for him. I wish Tesse could have made a true friend in college that she could depend on and go to for help and advice. I kept hanging in there hoping Hardin would eventually make a drastic change and start treating Tesse with some respect. Does NOT happen which is very disappointing. I could NOT believe the cliffhanger ending and cannot wait until 11/25/14 when the next book comes out. I guess that's why they always leave good stories like they do, I hope that in the second book Harlin gets what he deserves and Tesse learns to get a back bone and she ends up happy with someone else who appreciates and deserves her.

I enjoyed this NA romance for what it was, which is a story about a girl who was obviously sheltered but also bullied by her mother growing up and a boy who has ptsd and his way of dealing with that is anger. He tries to be the bad boy but his good boy shows through whenever he lets down his guard. I think he is also trying so hard to be the bad guy that he doesn't have guts enough to stand up for what he thinks but instead does things no matter how awful because he doesn't want to look weak to his "friends". 1/2 the book I loved him and the other 1/2 I thought he acted like a boy and not a man! I hope book 2 will show him growing but from the nasty reviewers I'm guessing he doesn't. That will not deter me from continuing on to book 2 because I have to see what happens next. The story pulled me in from the beginning which is what i'm always looking for in a book.
The narration of this audiobook was great! She does a great accent for Hardin.

I don't know if it was a good story or not as I stopped listening. The reason I stopped listening was because everytime something interesting was about to happen the story paused to introduce a new chapter. Like when they first kiss, as soon as their lips meet, it' paused to start the next chapter, only to carry on what was happening, and there was no need for it. The chapters are so short, always unfinished only to continue in a new one and interrupt the scene, and they actually ruined the story for me. It killed the first kiss. As for the narrator, she was good, but her English accent was not. I'm English and we don't sound like that.
