Synopsis: Drafted by the NHL at eighteen, Jordan Garrison was headed for fame, and there was only one person he wanted to share it with-Jessie Caplan. He was crazy in love with her, and had finally told her so. They shared an amazing night . . . and then everything fell apart.
Jessie tries not to think about the night she gave herself to Jordan-or how he broke her heart. She tries not to think about it, but she does. Especially now, when she’s staring into his sky-blue eyes for the first time in six years. After so much time and torment, she can’t tell if she loves him or hates him. But Jordan has learned enough to know a connection like theirs is rare. He was lucky to find Jessie once. No way will he lose her again.
My Review: All I can say is WOW. This book is a mixture of drama, hot steamy sex, and heartbreaking. It comes in a cycle from making up, arguing, causing drama, revenges, confessions, and sex. The drama from high school continues for 6 years into the adulthood which is a little extreme for me, but I liked it. The whole point of this book is basically about two person, who are madly in love with each other, running away from each other because they were afraid of one reason, rejection. They hurt each other intentionally and intentionally which is immature in my book; however, it is what the author wrote, so be it.
Jessie has two protective sisters who want nothing but best for their older sister, Jessie. However, they’ve done some damages with the relationship between Jessie and Jordan, but it didn’t stop Jessie and Jordan from being in love with each other. Jordan has two goofy brothers who are always on his side and encourage him to win Jessie’s love. No thanks to them because Jordan, as always as he is, doesn’t listen to his brothers which made things even more worse because he cannot put his ego aside. He fucked up constantly due to jealously, egoism, and possessive. Apparently, his skills in bed makes it up for Jessie ( LOL ). This book isn’t boring and predictable. I believe this book is good for the current generation because a lot of people from the current generation can relate a lot with this book.
