He told me to settle. He asked what was wrong with me. He called me an easy target. That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks. I labeled him an asshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother's fraternity brother.
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

Nothing new here for this genre, enjoyable but not memorable. Expensive as an audio book when it so unremarkable.
"Sweet and heart felt"
I really liked this book. Had sweetness and heart tugging emotions. All the characters were well developed and I was able to connect with them easily.
Narration was on point in my opinion. Have to see what else they narrator.
"First Tijan read but definitely not the last."
5 Crazy Ass Must Read Stars!!!!!
So I have this whole guilty pleasure with forbidden romances and when I saw the sign up for this, I was curious and intrigued by the title. I'm always up for a twist to the usual plot. I had never read anything by Tijan and have heard nothing but great reviews of her work. My sister raves about the Fallen Crest series all the time. With all that in mind, I decided I was going to test the Tijan waters.
Why didn't I read her work sooner? How did I go this long without reading anything by her? ~ All thoughts I had while reading this.
I loved how the story flowed and the characters never seemed be lacking whether it be the jerk of the stepbrother, the brother to the anti-brother, and friends.
I laughed, shed a couple tears, clutched my chest, wanted to wring necks, and got all kinds of hot and bothered.
This was my first Tijan book but I can most definitely say it will not be my last! I'm checking out the Fallen Crest series next.
"Audio was great, book was... meh"
I really liked the female narrator. She did a pretty good job of portraying a barely legal college freshman. I wish the male narrator had more to say, though I know that's just the way the book was written.
As for the book itself, it was not my favorite by this author. It was very new adult, high school to college drama with some some strange outcomes. Maybe I'm just burnt out on the whole step-brother hookup theme that even having it in the back story was a turn off.
Even so, the author did a good job with the flow of the story, her writing style stayed true throughout, and there were several relatable events.
This was my first time reading a book by Tijan. Wonderful author. I am hooked!!
"one of the best love stories"
learning what true love is and saying goodbye can
sometimes be the hardest thing to
"All the stars"
I often try not to write too long of a review because I don't know how many people want that much information, so I will make this short and sweet.
Funny, charming, sexy, emotional, entertaining... this audio checks ALL of my boxes. I was completely engaged, the entire book and that says a lot.
Bailey Carr narrates 90% of the book and she is positively amazing. Her voice was sweet and young and everything it should have been. Even her "male voices" were good enough to not distract from the book. Vilkas Adam only had a couple chapters but what I did hear was great. His "female voice" was kinda whiny and did pull from the story a bit but not enough to bother me. Only enough to make note.
This audiobook was enjoyable, but a little more geared to young college age kids. The narration was well done.
"one of my favorites"
I loved it. Tijan is a wonderful Author. This is a must read. I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. So I bought the Audiobook so I could listen while I clean.
"LOVE THIS COLLEGE ROMANCE"
This book was so much more than I expected. Great characters and I loved the storyline. I couldn't stop listening!
The narrators did a great job. I loved Summer's sarcastic sense of humor and awkward quirks. Tijan's writing is funny and sad and they nailed it. I loved hearing Caden at the end! I will definitely be listening to more books from these narrators.
I was surprised.... it was pretty good. I think it was for YA though. College aged Young Adults who focus a lot on gossip
narrators were great!
