15924661Blurb from Goodreads

Alex Thompson’s life is following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she’s focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.

Dylan Paris comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he’s made of his life.

When Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep from killing each other.

Only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.

The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.

My Thoughts
This is definitely a good bittersweet love story, though I have to admit that I’m kind of surprise it was written by male author. Don’t get me wrong but I rarely read a NA romance book from male author, so I don’t know what to expect when I read it. I love the characters in this story, Dylan and Alex with their strength and weakness complete each other, Alex’s best friend, Kelly and her boyfriend, Joel, they are interesting to read and I kind of want to read their own story. And also Alex’s sister, Carrie and Dylan’s friend, Sherman I’m sure I’ll read their story soon.

As for the story, I like that Dylan and Alex’s relationship aren’t easy since they are so different from each other, though I feel that their love have too many drama and obstacles for my taste. It Dylan’s stories that interesting me more. In some part, I want to read more about his PTSD. It well described yet somehow I feel that it’s only a little part of it. I think since it influences his life and his relationship with Alex, it supposed to be more than it described here.

Result: 3.5 stars of 5 stars
