"Nineteen year-old Emma Harrington’s number one rule is; Never give your heart away to a man, no matter what. That lesson was learned early on in her life and she will never forget it.
Starting over in the USA, Emma starts college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do and live how she wants and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.
That is until Scott Mason walks on stage…
Intense, bad boy Scott is the lead singer in a local and popular rock band. Ladies man and Ashley’s longtime friend, Emma is instantly drawn to him, even though he is everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette; light it, use it, and lose it.
For her cousin’s sake, she makes an effort to get along with Scott. She soon discovers that there is more to Scott which makes him even more dangerous in her eyes. Underneath the façade of friendship; jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurities, fester and battle it out as she fights her attraction and history from repeating itself.
One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her."
So where oh where do I begin. I guess I'll start with I did like the book, it wasn't great, it didn't move me to tears but it wasn't awful. I sat down and finished it in one sitting, probably two hours but not because I was riveted by what was on the page but mainly because I had nothing better to do. The only reason it didn't get more than three stars was because it was kind of similar to Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens; except I felt in Thoughtless Kiera and Kellan hurt each other equally, **KIND OF SPOILERY** whereas in this book Scott really kept fucking Emma over, literally. Even when she wasn't messing around with anyone else he still brought a girl home every night. And I mean EVERY flipping night. For me, this made it harder to love him how I love Kellan. I wish Mrs. Hawkers wouldn't have made Scott such a slutty scumbag or this book could have easily been five stars. But because I was so busy being constantly disgusted with Scott's behavior, and trust me it eventually goes behind sleeping with dumb easy women, I couldn't get into the storyline or the "romance". This book is definitely a pass unless you have nothing better going on...
MY RATING: ★ ★ ★
