When she lost it all, Jess decided to cope by living a lie.
But you can’t keep on pretending forever…
Twenty-one-year-old Jess used to have everything—a loyal best friend, a boyfriend she loved, and a future that was right on track. But in a single night, her whole world changed.
Now, Jess lives for the impersonal connection of drunken hook-ups and to-go coffee cups in the morning. All she needs is one night to pretend everything is fine…until she meets Adam.
Thanks to a sports injury, gorgeous, charming basketball star Adam Carson is stuck in physical therapy at the hospital where Jess interns—giving her the perfect opportunity to see his sweet, considerate nature and making her realize that maybe she does want something more.
But while Adam might be the best thing that’s happened to Jess in a long time, letting him past her carefully constructed walls means letting him know what happened…and why he’d never want her for more than one night.
A.J. Pine’s books have taken a big place in my heart. Forever. They are just so easy to get into. You get swept away by the way of the story and before you know it, it’s over, and you have to wait for more.
Amy is such a great writer. I love the way she gives us unusual characters and turns them into something else. Something that looks like magic in front of our eyes. Adam and Jess were like that to me. When I found out Adam was going to be a basketball player, I was all in. I’m all for sports romances.
Even though the sports part isn’t so big in this book, I get so happy when a character plays a sport. And it was so fantastic to see Adam play! Thank you, A.J..
It was so much fun to watch Jess grow before my eyes, and she was a great character – one whom I love at first sight.
The relationship between Adam and Jess started as friends (I LOVE THIS SO MUCH), but they knew there was something between the lines they didn’t want to acknowledge.
I love these kinds of stories- friends to lovers. It’s just so powerful and amazing to see them interact. The teasing, the looks they gave to one another, the smiles; it all led up to what we all wanted. 😉
It was magical- this book was magical. Also, Amy makes me cry so much with her books, but I forgive her every time, because she always manages to make it worth it. Every single book of hers is worth it. And if you haven’t read a book of hers yet, I highly recommend you to start.
Amy is going to go all big-star on us.
