This one goes on the extremely short list of NA books I've read and really enjoyed. As a rule this genre hasn't been particularly great for me, but every once in awhile a book will surprise you. This is one of those times. The characters in this book were extremely well done. Lucas makes for a swoon-worthy hero with an extremely dark past. I've seen several people refer to him as a bad boy, but I disagree. Having tattoos and driving a motorcycle doesn't automatically make you a bad boy. Lucas is a good guy. He's a good student, he works hard, he cares about people... the way he treated the heroine... just, yes, all good. Jacqueline was also really likable. I didn't agree with every decision she made, but I understood them. She was strong and I love that she and her roommate/bff took self-defense classes so they would be able to protect themselves. I think one of the things I liked most about this book was that it had an overall truthfulness to it. These people seemed like regular college kids. This book definitely had more angst than I generally like reading, but I still found it engaging and couldn't stop flipping pages.
