From NEW YORK TIMES and USATODAY Bestselling author Nicole Williams . . .
Knox Jagger. The name inspires resentment in every male at Sinclair University, want in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase.
Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.
As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.
How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s become . . .
***Hard Knox is the first book in The Outsider Chronicles, although each book that follows will highlight different couples and each can be read as a stand-alone.***
Customer ReviewsSee All
This is a book you can put back on the shelves. Not only is the writing lackluster and informal, it seems that the author was paid a dollar a word because that how she writes. It takes her pages to accomplish anything to add to the plot and has irrelevant and repetitive conversations. In addition, the main character, Charlie is annoying, unrealistic, and is so unlikable it makes you want to close the book and never pick it up. The sad thing is the plot has such great potential, but due to poor writing the ideas are lost. Sorry to say, but don’t waste your money on this book. Let’s just say there’s a reason it is 2.99, not 3.99.
Don’t waste your money
The main character, Charlie, is so obnoxiously stuck up and small-minded that I hardly made it past the first few chapters. Really disappointing.
