What happens when you start falling for your worst enemy? Fans of Abbi Glines and Monica Murphy will relish this addictive novel of smoking-hot seduction—and revenge gone so wrong, it’s right.
I wasn’t always this jaded. I had a clear head, things I wanted out of life, and a concise plan on how to get there. For being only twenty-one, I pretty much had it all figured out. Until the day my cousin died.
I spent months going over all the details surrounding her death, trying to figure out how I missed the signs, and the only thing I could come up with was she would still be alive if it wasn’t for one person: her professor. So I transferred to his college, enrolled in his class, and set my new plan in motion.
First I’ll seduce him. Then I’ll ruin him. I’ve just got to stay strong and not let his charm and my emotions get the best of me. Because someone has to pay for her death. If it’s the last thing I do, I’m going to break Noah.
Usually with a Professor and student novel there tends to be “weirdness” however, there wasn’t much age difference in the Professor and the student. Hey, the student could go out to clubs, have a glass a wine and indulge in relationships due to her being of age. It definitely turned this book into something realistic.
Zara moved to Northwestern to be where her cousin, Karly was. Her and Karly were close like sisters, or so Zara thought. Maybe there is more distance between them than she ever knew could exist. Zara finds the professor Karly couldn’t stop talking about, and Zara makes a plan. She plans to get his attention, and make him beg for her.
The plot of this story had me up until 3am, I was flipping pages so fast, I wanted to know where the plot was going as it began to thicken with more tensity. I enjoyed getting to know most of the characters but Dillion, he came off as a complete ass. I guess he just truly is.
What I didn’t enjoy?
There were parts in the book that just didn’t seemed to “click” with me, it seemed that some parts were forced together, or details were missing. I was never pulled into the main characters connection like I wanted. I felt something didn’t develop there. I was more tied up in the storyline/plot than I was the characters, thus is why I am not liberating in what I loved about them, because to be frank I think they will be forgotten, but the storyline will always be remembered. I hope that makes sense.
On another hand, the storyline and, or plot was suspenseful, intriguing, shocking and had me wanting to continue to find out more. I truly enjoyed the idea.
Noah was more likely to get to known than the others just due to his character: his charm, humor, and at times seriousness.
