The past can shape us …
Jenna Fitzgerald’s beliefs have become her truths.
She’s discovered that it’s easier to stay away from love than it is to try and deal with the loss of it. She doesn’t want a relationship and she has no plans to fall in love. But falling into bed with a guy …
Well, that’s a different story.
Nate Campbell’s rules have been set.
He’s learned that it’s important to really get to know a girl before you move forward. He’s not looking for something simple and easy. He’s looking for something real.
And he won’t give up until he finds it.
But what Jenna and Nate soon realize is that love is truth. And it doesn’t always follow the rules. Sometimes you don’t get to choose who you fall for.
Sometimes you don’t get to choose whether you fall at all …

5 freaking full cups!!
I am so excited to tell you about this book!! OK, I knew after reading Jennifer’s first book, On The Floor (which you need to read before this one to really appreciate everything, that I would love this book. I was NOT disappointed.
By page 13 I was totally and completely fucking heartbroken and devastated. PAGE 13 PEOPLE!!! All I could think was, “Shit I am so screwed.” OK, something important to note. I am not, NOT, a crier. It’s rare in real life and super-duper rare in books. But I wasn’t even done with the first chapter and my stomach was in knots, my throat was tight, and I just ached for Jenna.
I was so emotionally attached and invested in Jenna so quickly, it was so easy to read this in one sitting. Jenna is smart and ambitious, and yet so totally (and unknowingly) vulnerable, you just love her. She is hilarious too.
“I want real life penis and vagina type stuff, not fucking on a cloud…”
Jenna is heartbroken early in life and has decided that exclusive non-relationships are the way to go. And for the most part she does OK. However, she was totally blindsided by my new BBF, Nate.
Nate is amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Talented, intelligent, kind, loving, OMG I could go one forever! He has issues, don’t get me wrong, he’s not some unattainable perfect guy. He’s real enough to love, and amazing enough to want to read about.
They start out as friends, since they are looking for extremely different things in a relationship, and this is new for Jenna. It’s really neat to see them come together.
“It can be scary to take the risk, but I think it’s scarier to miss out on something great because of fear.”
The emotional attachment Jennifer creates really makes you feel everything Jenna feels, and it is wonderful. The entire book has you half-way on edge, waiting right along with Jenna. Even the character development is thoroughly engaging.
I cannot wait for the next installment!!
