A New Adult novel from Erin McCarthy, the USA Today bestselling author of True.
Erin McCarthy stunned audiences with her passionate new adult romance, True, now she returns with a seductive and touching tale of finding love in all the wrong places . . .
Jessica Sweet thought going away to college would finally free her from her judgmental parent, but it's actually made her realise that she can't go home and be a hypocrite anymore. Tired of dodging their questions, she stays at school over the summer and lands in an unexpected crash pad: Riley Mann's house.
Sarcastic and cocky, Riley is also sexiness personified, with tattoos and biceps earned from working in construction. He seems completely wrong for Jessica, but behind his self-assured grin Riley hides a sensitive side as well as a family burden. As Jessica helps him get his house in order for a custody hearing, they begin to fall for each other, and she is forced to question what she's hiding herself.
But when it comes down to showing Riley how she truly feels, Jessica's fear of rejection may ruin the best thing - the best guy - to ever happen to her. . .
