The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
Why you should read this book: I just recently re-read this book and I had forgotten how much I loved it. I adore Abby. She might be one of my favorite female characters in books. She's strong, independent and she can totally hold her own with pretty much anyone. She's seriously badass. It doesn't seem like it at first but once you dive into the story a little further, you see how awesome she is. And Travis, god I love Travis. He's amazing and the way he opens up to Abby, the love they have for each other, the way they are there for one another...I can't even explain how amazing their connection is. I fall in love with this book all over again every time I read it.
