Abby has moved to a different city where no one knows her past. We know she is hiding something. She also has a great best friend who is dating a normal guy. But, when Abby meets her BFF's boyfriend's cousin her life changes.
Travis Maddox is trouble with a capital T and a capital M. He is part of an underground fighting club and he wins all the time. He has a reputation of never sleeping with the same girl twice but when he meets Abby, everything changes for him.
But Travis is not only a fighter and a chick magnet, he is also super smart. He is acing all his classes and he helps Abby study.
Abby, on the other hand, wants security. Wants a nice guy to call hers. She knows Travis is a loose cannon. He can't be faithful right? But Abby can't stay away from Maddox especially after a bet is in place.
I'm glad I didn't read any of the reviews before I started this book. I had read the blurb and wasn't sure if I would like it. But after Book Bash, I knew that there had to be a reason for people to stand in line for a while just to get a signature from Jamie McGuire (myself included. Bought the book- Did the line). It helps that Jamie seems so natural, approachable and beautiful. But I digress.
I enjoyed this book. It was the perfect July 4th beach book.
Travis Maddox is a multidimensional character. He is flawed, he is scared of falling in love and losing the girl, he is also lonely, sweet (the gift), vulnerable and has a bad temper. I think he figures out he is in love before Abby does. Yes, they both made mistakes and they were impossible at times but in the end, everything works out for me.
