At a freshman party she doesn't remember, Jess Jordan was almost raped.
Almost. Very nearly. Not quite. Three years later Jess has managed to make everyone believe she's better. Over it. Because she is...almost. Very nearly. Not quite.
Unfortunately, until Jess proves she's back to normal activities, her parents won't discuss college. So she lands a summer internship and strikes a deal with hockey jock Gray Porter: He gets $8,000. She gets a fake boyfriend and a social life.
Jess has no idea Gray signed on for reasons other than money. She also never expects to fall in love. But Gray's beyond hot, holds her hand all the time, and makes her forget that he's simply doing his job. It's like having a real boyfriend
...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.
Gray Porter is hiding secrets of his own. About Jess Jordan. About why he's driven to protect her, why he won't cash her checks or deny her anything she asks.
A best-selling high school romance by Anne Eliot, performed in dual narration by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross.

Good portrayal of a great story
- Kindling Micky
Young love and secrets
It's in the top ten.
I liked that the author was not afraid to tackle a very sensitive topic, and did so with empathy.
Kai and Wen bring the story to life, they add emphasis without overdoing it.
It was, and I did.
I liked the story, it was a difficult trip at times, but love won out in the end.
