Eighteen year old Harper has grown up under her career Marine of a father's thumb. Ready to live life her own way and experience things she's only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father's unit; she's on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family and emotions. Some she wasn't expecting yet, and others she never knew she was missing.

She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with her boyfriend Brandon, and her roommate's brother Chase. Covered in tattoos, known for fighting in the Underground and ridiculously muscled...they're exactly what she was always warned to stay away from, but just what she needs. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both adore and would do anything for Harper, including stepping back if it means she's happy.

Her first year away is turning out to be near perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.
My Teaser ~

    "Please don't. Don't give him everything."
He placed a hand on either side of my body and brought his face back to mine. "He doesn't deserve you Harper."
  My breath was coming in faster, and though I knew I should lean away, I couldn't make myself actually do it. "And who does," My voice was barely a whisper. ~14%

**This is shaping up to be one steamy love triangle.**

  11. Oh, I'm staying far away from this book. I've heard many things. Can't wait to see what you think Andrea. :)

  12. Good teaser, enjoy!

  13. Sounds like a really good coming-of-age story. The cover alone raises lots of questions and makes me want to look inside. You chose a good teaser.

  15. I met Molly in Houston. Been meaning to get to one of her books. This one sounds good.


  16. Great teaser! I normally stay away from love triangles, but this is one that I am dying to try. I can enjoy a love triangle when it is the focus, rather than an annoying distraction.

  17. I can't wait to start this one. Great teaser.
