GR's Summary:

Two secrets. One bet. Who will break first?


Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.


On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bad boy. Maybe that's why Taylor's afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn't want to get burned, so she needs him gone before it's too late.


Hunter himself has been burned before, but Taylor's sexy laugh and refusal to let him get away with anything make her irresistible. Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she either truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment;and leave her alone.


But when the man behind Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.


What Made Me Swoon:

" 'I thought you didn't like me.'  'I don't want to.'  He got up and crouched in front of my chair so fast I almost jumped.  'What is it about you?  Is it the eyes?  Your smile?  That sexy laugh?  The way you call me our on my sh*t?  I don't know  All I know is that I don't like it.  I don't like it.'  He moved his face close to mine.  His breath smelled faintly of beer but more like him.  That spicy smell that clung to him.  'I don't like it,' he whispered against my lips.  They were almost touching.  Almost...He pulled back.  I'd had enough.  If I didn't kiss this boy right here, right now, I was going to die.  I slammed my hand on the back of his head and pulled his head toward mine.  Enough talking.  Time for kissing. Our lips met, and that was it.  All our resistance crumbled, and, suddenly, I was being thrown backward as Hunter tried to devour me none too gently."  (eARC, Loc. 1848)

  4. "If I didn't kiss this boy right here, right now, I was going to die." Normally I would roll my eyes at a statement this dramatic but with Hunter I totally get it. :) Here's My Swoon
