beginning it filled me with excitement and it made me laugh out loudBut then the things turned outserious and the angst surrounded meAnd then came the anger God, i was so furious with Bri I wanted to slap her very badand the heartbreaking especially for Josh s behalf But let me take the things from the beginningBrianne was so uptight She had plan out all of her life and she was following her goals.But she had no idea of having fun or impulsive feelingsShe never did anything out of program and that was such a pity for her.She was during her master and at the same time, she was working as an academic counsellor.And there was where she met Josh and the order in her life started to tearing downI could tell he was far from stupid.Lazy Yes But stupid Not so much.Which made his bahevior unacceptable in my book.People who squandered their God given talents pissed me off Some of us had to work ourselves to the bone to get aheadJosh was such an easygoing person He was so open, so full of life He was living for the momentHe was partying, he was spending time with several girls, he adored to play guitar for himself and he loved his friendsBut somewhere in between all of those things, he forgot to care about his academic progressAfter three years in college, he didn t stabilized yet on a major He was just switching directions all the time as he hadn t figured out what he wanted to do with his life.He just knew that he didn t want to return to his homeHis meeting with Bri changed his point of view and he started to care for something else than the usualsWork smarter, not harder That was my motto, anyway Of course, I hadn t been doing much work either smart or hard recently, which was how I d ended up on academic probationWell, from the first moment, the air around Josh and Bri was thick with tensionThey managed to get under each other s skin but not in a good wayBri thought of him the worst and she was showing her dislike and Josh couldn t stand those judgemental eyes upon him and he wanted to provoke her all the timeBut this little game got them involved emotionally, even though that this thing between them was wrong.Bri was Josh s academic guide and he was just a client It was unethicalAnd beyond that, they were like polar opposites They would never fit in togetherYeah she was definetely my polar opposite.There wasn t much we had in common Actually, I don t think we had anything in common other than attending the same school.But that made her so muchinterestingSo what will happen with those two Will they ignore everything that are standing in their way and give a shot to this attraction Or all those things between them will keep them apart Can they overcome their problems and be together Can Josh abandon his ways in life and to committ only to Bri And will Bri manage to stop judging him for his luck of goals In the beginning, all I wanted to do was get under her skin because she irritated the shit out of me with all her talk about study skills and graduation requiremens.Now I wanted to get under her skin in a different way.This wasn t right Josh There was a lotto Josh than he d have people believe His party frat boy facade was crumbling before my eyes.Anf before I could stop it, I fell a little further and a little faster for him.Shit Bri Well, i adore Josh.As i told you above, he was such an easygoing guyYep, he was undecided, but he was just 21 years old for God s sake And he had lots of shits in his plate to deal withJosh was a contrantiction He was so confident and cocky at times, but underneath that facade he was a sensitive and caring man.Even though that he was refusing to show his feelings, the lack of trust by the people he loved was hurting himHe was really talented with guitar, but he was too shy to announce itYep, he was a little bit of lazy, but he was throwing joy and life around him and Bri wasn t an exceptionShe manage to crawl into his heart and he didn t want to let her go, even though that he thought he wasn t good enough for herAnd for this lack of confidence, i was mad of himI was friendly with lots of people, but I could count on one hand the number of people I truly cared about I didn t hand that power over easily Whether she knew it or not, Bri had that power now the power to destroy meAs i told you above, Bri was really focused on her goals and she was a little bit uptightAnd here comes the laughter She was tooking the things so literally that i couldn t stop laughing in the beginning, but Bri s character made me furious in many scenes and toward the end even She fell for Josh, but she was holding back, even though that Josh made herreckless and to takerisks and in the beginning, she was doing a great job with thatBut she was judgemental by nature and i think, that was because she had a hard life as a kid that made her untrustful toward people Even though when she was in good terms with Josh, she didn t stop judging him for everythingIt bothered her his lack of major, his previous sexual life he misjudging his actions all the god damn time and that was pissing me off.Because of her low confidence, she was so unfair to him and that wasn t cool at allMy poor Josh, she ripped his heart outShe had her life all put together, and I was nothing but a slacker with no direction What did I have to offer My love So what if I loved her It wasn t enough.I was never gonna be good enough for herNow, Josh and Bri together were really greatYep, they were so opposite characters but when they let themselves loose were such sweethearts Their first encounters were so great and so funnyBut because of this big difference between them, they were having trusting issues to themselves because of the other They both thought that they didn t deserve to be with the other and that was such a waste of timeJust remember that love isn t an equation It s not always going to balance perfectly It s not always rational Casey to BriNow the second charactersJosh s friends were really great guys, but sometimes i wanted to shut their mouths upBri s best friend, Casey was so awesome I loved her near to the end She was the only rational person around Bri.Bret was an asshole from the first momentAnd Josh s father was acting also like a douche toward his sonIn generally, i was so mad with almost all the characters in here because they weren t having faith toward Josh s abilities and they didn t have a fuckin clue that this lack of trust was hurting Josh That s all for me It was a lovely ride and i had a great time while i was reading this book ARC kindly
