Samantha Sawyer, a busy college junior, is thrown a curveball when she's asked to mentor Adriana, a shy freshman with secrets and mysteries.
Unfortunately, these secrets lead Sam into a dangerous game she’s not sure she can win. Her salvation comes packaged in the tall, sexy, and self-assured Blake Angel. Can he save her, or is he really the devil in disguise?
Excuse me while I rock in the corner in the fetal position. This book blew me away and then, unexpectedly ended in a cliffhanger. WHHYYY!?!? All kidding aside, I honestly was presuming something different as far as the story goes. I was pleasantly surprised.
Samantha isn’t your typical college junior. She has her head on straight and prefers to miss out on the college party scene. The only thing holding her back is her brother’s death. Her friends distract her for the most part when she’s not in class or studying. That is until she starts mentoring the mysterious freshman across the hall, Adriana. With trying to befriend Adriana, Sam keeps running into who she calls Thor (Blake)…she can’t seem to keep her mind from wandering to this hunk. Blake just pops up wherever she goes….who is this guy?
This is my very first book by Ms Schuler and boy oh boy it won’t be the last. I absolutely loved her writing style and her uniqueness. I never knew what was going to happen next! My mind is blown. This book had everything you can ask for in the New Adult genre. I loved the flow, and the element of surprise with hints of romance embedded. I am truly excited for book two!!
Maggie Jane Schuler is a wife, mother of three almost-grown children, and teacher by day. While she has always loved to read, the thought of writing her own prose did not strike until she was in the middle of writing her Master’s Thesis. From that point on she was hooked. She Resides in Southern California. Besides the family and books, she loves baseball. Since the Dodgers, Angels, and Padres are all within a short distance, and the Giants and Athletics a nice weekend jaunt away, she’s got plenty of games to take in during the season. Additionally, she enjoys cooking, movies, the beach, and the local mountains. She’s most content being with her family engaged in whatever activity they have planned.
