Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.Goodreads.com
On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome, blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bundle of bad boy. Maybe that's why Taylor's afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn't want to get burned, and even though her other roommates adore him, she wants him gone before it's too late.
Hunter himself has been been burned before, but the fact that Taylor calls him out on his crap and has the sexiest laugh ever make him decide maybe love isn't a lost cause. They make a bet: if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment--and leave her alone. The problem is, the more time they spend together, the less she hates him, and the more she moves toward love.
But when the man who holds the key to Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces and threatens to wreck everything, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.
"The first time I met Hunter Zaccadelli, I punched him in the face."
Taylor truly did! Day 1, move in day for her and her two college roommates and when she opens the door, her fourth roommate isn't the girl they were expecting but a wise "asshat." For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why Taylor had such animosity for Hunter. We have this gorgeous guy, he can sing, cook and is annoyingly charming. What's not to love? But for Taylor, her walls are impenetrable or so she thinks. She can't fall in love and she surely doesn't want to fall in love with Hunter. She wants him gone before anything develops between them. Hunter has his own secrets, his own fortress of classified information and pain locked within himself.
What to do??
Yup, a bet, if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him then he'll leave the apartment.
However, the more Taylor and Hunter spend together, the more the connection deepens into something real, wholesome and powerful. Will Taylor and Hunter be each others guiding lights? Will they be strong enough to fix themselves and each other? Somehwere in this book I became hooked.
Hunter became worthy of book boyfriend status and I was rooting for him to kick down Taylor's walls, throw her on the recliner and kiss the hurt away.
"The only thing we can do is keep moving, even when it feels like you’re walking through a pit of cement.” -Hunter
