The first book in the Hart University Series is Rikki during the gang’s freshmen year. The second book is about Will and Claire during their sophomore year. There will be four books in the series.
Will is Hart Universities new starting QB. He sat on the bench all last year and this time around he actually gets to play. He wants to standout for one particular person, Claire. Claire is known for two things: first her desire to be a doctor and second her band. She is a musician and loves it. She writes songs all the time and performs at different parties around town. At the beginning of the school year her heart is crushed and takes a vow of celibacy from relationships. She overall goal is to work on herself. She is determined to be comfortable in her own skin and not rely on any man to make her feel better. Problem is when you are super attracted to the star QB, who is also one of the kindest, sweetest guys you have ever meet, it can make you question whether "the vow for no relationship" is truly worth it?
I love Claire and Will. They each have their own crap (personal struggles they are dealing with) but in the end they realize that the only way they can be together is if they take care of themselves first. I love that. You can’t give yourself fully to someone if you, yourself are broken.
Claire becomes broken in the beginning of the book and we feel for her; but, it isn’t the same remorse I feel for Will. The guy seemed like he had everything going for him, then POW it all ended. He was left with nothing and he thought he had no one to lean on.
Claire and some other friends do an intervention on Will, and that is when the steam between him and her gets becomes smoky!
This story as dual POV’s. It has music, poetry, friendship, and sports. What I like is that, this book isn’t about a good girl turning a bad boy good. This is about two good, down-to-earth people that are just seeking to improve themselves, so they can be emotional and mentally healthier. It is so real and raw. I truly enjoyed it.
Totally worth the read!
Real stories with real problems.
Enjoy and let me know what you all think of it.
From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy... it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, 'Cut' had been completed.
When her son Max was diagnosed with autism, Avery Abbot’s life changed forever. Her husband left, and her own dreams became a distant fantasy—always second to fighting never-ending battles to make sure Max was given opportunity, love and respect. Finding someone to fight along her side wasn’t even on her list, and she’d come to terms with the fact that she could never be her own priority again.
But a familiar face walking into her life in the form of 25-year-old Mason Street had Avery’s heart waging a war within. Mason was a failure. When he left his hometown five years ago, he was never coming back—it was only a matter of time before his records hit the billboard charts. Women, booze and rock-n-roll—that was it for him. But it seemed fate had a different plan in mind, and with a dropped record contract, little money and nowhere to go, Mason turned to the only family that ever made him feel home—the Abbots.
Avery loved Mason silently for years—until he broke her heart…completely. But time and life have a funny way of changing people, and sometimes second chances are there for a reason. Could this one save them both?
Max is always telling me about gravity, and how it pulls two masses together. Gravity. That's what I'm feeling right now."
THIS IS A MUST READ!!!! It has everything we love about NA, and it has more!
WHEN (not if) you do read it, tell me what you think below!

2) Trip to Hawaii! Hell Yea! A girlfriend get away. I totally did this with my best friend. We both just broke up with our boyfriends and needed to get away from everyone. So we packed up one of our cars and drove 4 hours north to Santa Barbra Beach! Stay for a few days and had so much fun. All girl pals have to do something like that at least once!
There are sometimes those books that you are unsure if it is adult or if it is New Adult. This is one of those books that I wasn't so sure about. I think it leans more in the Adult area, but the internal turmoil that the female protagonist goes through concludes that it can also be placed in New Adult. So here it is, in New Adult...
Was given an ARC for an honest review.
Penelope had it all and lost it all. The love of her life, gone; her job, over. With nowhere else to go she moves in with her friend Rosie and hibernates herself.
