Goodreads’ Book Description:
When Hailey Covington arrived at the University of Oregon, her only goal was to survive her Freshman Year. But when she met Jonah Trabor, everything changed. Intrigued by the new mystery guy who understands her and makes her feel safe, Hailey soon finds herself tangled in a web of secrets and lies— with Jonah at the center of it all.
For Jonah, meeting Hailey is something he has waited a long time to do. Captivated by the beautiful girl who challenges him and makes him feel alive, Jonah knows he is playing with fire. But the more time he spends with her, the deeper he allows himself to fall into a world not meant for him— with Hailey at the center of it all.
Loving each other might be reckless, but they quickly learn that love isn’t hinged on a choice.
This is a debut novel for Holli True and I think it had a lot of potential to be a great story.
Hailey and Jonah were really likable characters; they just fell in love too quickly for me.
I loved the secondary characters, Rebecca and Charlie, because their personalities were really fun to get to know and added more familiarity to the story. I could easily see myself being friends with them, which is so important to me when reading.
The writing did an exemplary job of depicting the scenes and made it feel like I was really in the characters’ world. Paranormal romance isn’t a genre I’m extremely familiar with so I didn’t really know what to expect with this story.
The plot was definitely suspenseful because I was dying to know what the heck was going on with Jonah the entire time, so I liked that the book had me hooked and interested to keep on reading.
If you want to feel a bit reckless and love love, definitely check out this debut novel!
P.S. I’m totally in love with the cover. So simple and beautiful!
