Nina Kennedy was alive…but not living…until she met him. Planes, trains, heights…you name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias. When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who’s pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she’s ever met.
Behind Jake Green’s rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina’s outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn’t expecting to fall hard for her in the process. What Nina doesn’t realize, is that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it?
First half of the book is told in Nina's POV & the second half in Jake's - towards the end a mix of both.
Jake appears to be the hot tattooed guy that has swarms of women after him. He might be some of those things but he's no man whore like you would think he would be. He's loyal to Nina even though they are just friends with a ton on sexual tension. Jake is keeping something from Nina & he knows he has to tell her before they take things to the next level but the need between these two is just too much and promises are made before the truth is revealed. Just as things come together for Jake & Nina they get torn apart. Every time they move one step forward things blow up again. It's a rocky road to a happily ever after for them but it's a journey worth taking. Some hot steamy sex scenes. You will fall in love with Jake more and more as the story goes he is an amazing character. Fantastic ending. I read "My Skylar" first so I can tell you that you get get a bit more of Jake & Nina in that book as well.
