Fight for your dreams. Fight for your life. Fight for love.

Nerdy girl Autumn Blakewood is the prime example of a goody two-shoes. She studies every night, is never late for class, and always follows the rules. She has never felt the need to step out of her comfort zone. That is, until she meets Hunter.

Hunter Bane is a cocky, confident bad-boy, who's nothing but trouble. He’s a dangerous distraction to everyone around him. Sexy and strong, Hunter enjoys the swooning effect he has on women. Especially those who aren't used to attention, like Autumn.

Autumn finds it hard not to give into Hunter’s advances, even though it all seems like a game to him. Trying to understand him is impossible, because he shrouds himself in mystery.

What she doesn't know is that Hunter has more baggage than anyone should have to carry. When she discovers he's in an illegal frat club to save the one person that matters to him, Autumn realizes this could mean the end of her undeniable connection to him. Even their lives are at risk.

But it's too late to turn back now ...
Why wouldn't you pick up this book, with a cover like that? Seriously, I was drooling over the cover alone! After reading the description I thought that this would be a fun read, and it kind of took me back to my younger days! Lol! Nerd girl who falls for the badboy! So I was excited to head back to college and dive into some quirky fun.

Autumn is definitely the nerdy type! She has crazy hair, glasses and loves to read. On her first day she makes a spectacle of herself and draws the attention of Hunter Bane, the dangerous looking hottie with grey eyes, who seems to take an interest in her. Autumn takes her schooling seriously, whenever she has a spare second, she spends it doing homework and assignments. She is an easy character to like and even though she is smart she is so naive at times! Real life issues take some time to sink in and I wanted to point her in the right direction, she takes too long to put all the pieces together!

Hunter is the complete opposite of Autumn. He has a lot of secrets but slowly lets her in. I could see that he liked Autumn, but she doesn't think he would fall for anyone like her, which was a little sad because no matter what she looks like on the outside, she was beautiful on the inside. She just needed for someone to show her that she is, in fact, pretty. I was so happy for her when she finally figured it out, and was brave enough to put herself out there because she often refers herself as chicken-shit!

I enjoyed how the story unravelled and the serious twist in the plot was intriguing. The characters had great chemistry and they had to work through some difficult situations. Fights, drugs and trafficking are a focus in this book, but I was able to see there was something bigger behind it all. You don't understand the whole picture until the end and I was a little shocked as to how it all unfolded. It was a good quick read and I will definitely pick up more from this author, especially now I know there is going to be more in this series! Looks like we'll get hunters POV next! Whoo hoo! 

I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
