"An addictive, sexy read that you can't help but devour."
- Anna Todd, author of the After series
He makes the rules. She breaks them all.
A new start. It's the only thing keeping Allie Harper going, when she packs up her life and moves across the country to Woodshill, Oregon. She's about to start college, desperate to leave the ghosts of her past behind her. Even if that means never talking to her parents again.
Now the hard part - finding an apartment before classes start. Just when it seems she'll have to live out of her car, Allie visits one more place. It's beautiful. With one exception: can she stand being roommates with campus bad boy Kaden White? Sure, Kaden is sexy with his tattoos and careless attitude, but he's also an arrogant jerk. With nowhere else to go, Allie moves in.
The first thing Kaden does is make a set of rules. Either Allie obeys, or she's out:
1. Don't talk about your girl problems.
2. Keep your mouth shut if I bring someone home.
3. We will NEVER hook up.
Easy enough, thinks Allie. Who would want to get involved with a brute like Kaden? But the more she gets to know him, the more she sees beyond his gruff facade. He, too, is harboring some painful secrets. For Kaden and Allie, it gets harder and harder to ignore the sparks between them. And the lines between the rules start to blur ...
Begin Again is a beautiful romance that shows us just how possible it is to start over. To find freedom in heartbreak and love in the most unlikely places.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Mona Casten’s book has all the makings of a spicy New Adult story: a U.S. college setting, a heroine trying to make her way in the world and a bad boy (ultimately redeemed). After a rocky beginning, reluctant college roommates Allie and Kaden become lovers. Through troughs, peaks and detours, Casten handles their romance with sensitivity—her engaging novel will have you cheering from the sidelines.
Love the characters, their development, interaction… The chemistry was spot on!!!.
Can’t handle the fact that abuse was bought out of court. Reality check unfortunately. Positive points to landmarks and outdoors adventure invitation
