This isn't a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I'd be happy to recommend one, but I don't have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed. It's the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again. Oh, and it's also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.

Couldn't put it down!
This really is a great story. You really feel like one of Juliet's friends and feel for her throughout the book
Not perfect, but worth the read.
Despite some flaws, I generally enjoyed this story. It's hard to find literature set at a college, so just being able to relate to the setting was a big plus for me.
My biggest issue was with the Juliet/Dylan relationship. It would be one thing for him to have an controlling and abusive personality and for her to be blind to it, choosing to look at his good qualities. But she is very clearly aware of his awfulness; nearly every thought she has about him is negative, every interaction filled with dread. I'm pretty sure the only positive thought about Dylan he shares with the reader is that he's a good kisser, but even that is always followed by terrible sex. How did she date him for so long? What's worse, the event that leads to their breakup is definitely not the worst thing he's done, so it's confusing why that event is what pushes her over the edge, although the reader is grateful that it does.
Thankfully, the book is redeemed by Juliet's relationship with Reed. My only complaint is the scene where they finally got together was a tad rushed, I was loving the tension and would have loved for it to be stretched a little further. It felt like they went from "will they/won't they" to "of course this was going to happen" two sentences of dialogue.
Despite a rough beginning, this book is worth the sweet ending.
This was a mediocre book. The first half is frustrating. I did a lot of mental eye rolling but after that it got good.
