Publisher's Summary

She's not looking for a hero. He's not looking for a hookup.
For Bella, the sweet-talking, free-loving, hip-checking student manager of the Harkness men's hockey team, sex is a second language. She's used to being fluent where others stutter, and the things people say behind her back don't (often) bother her. So she can't understand why her smoking-hot downstairs neighbor has so much trouble staying friends after their spontaneous night together. She knows better than to worry about it, but there's something in those espresso eyes that makes her second-guess herself.
Rafe is appalled with himself for losing his virginity in a drunken hookup. His strict Catholic upbringing always emphasized loving thy neighbor - but not with a bottle of wine and a box of condoms. The result is an Ivy League bout of awkwardness. But when Bella is leveled by a little bad luck and a downright nasty fraternity stunt, it's Rafe who is there to pick up the pieces.
Bella doesn't want Rafe's help, and she's through with men. Too bad the undeniable spark that crackles between the two of them just can't be extinguished.

This is an emotional, real and sweet story about a girl who learns the hard way that behaviors have consequences and sometimes those consequences heavily outweigh the crime.

I had such a hard time listening to the trials that the main character, Bella, went through. The way she was treated was so painful for me to hear that I had to take a break a few times and just cry. I don't think it's sensationalized or extreme. I think college women go through similar things regularly and it broke my heart. But then in walks in Rafe and my heart was filled. His loyalty and patience and integrity overwhelmed me and sent me into sobs for entirely different reasons. This love story is unlike any other and completely worth the credit.

Saskia and Nick were shining stars as narrators. They completely brought this story to life and left me in awe with their character portrayals.

Great Series!

Love this book and this entire series! I wasn't expecting Bella's book to be so serious but it was perfect. Bella and Rafe make perfect sense to me. They are so opposite but that is what works for them. This book hot a lot of emotions for me. Sarina Bowen has moved up to a must buy author for me. If you haven't tried her books yet, you really should!

Really great narration too.
