Hallie Clarke has been through the rumor mill so many times that she barely feels the sting of the lies anymore. With her impenetrable walls steady and in place, she leaves her infamous high school days behind and sets off for University of Michigan, with only her beat up, old guitar for company. Determined not to repeat past mistakes, Hallie vows to live her life differently and free from the rumors that can destroy a person so easily.
Or so she thinks.
It isn’t long before she attracts the attention of her too hot to handle neighbor, Nate Harris. She tries to fight her intense attraction to him, but with his sweet words and chiseled abs, her walls of ice begin to crumble around her. Hallie soon finds herself opening up to Nate, letting him into her world of music, and sharing secrets she swore she’d take to the grave.
The hot new romance causes more than a few heads to turn on campus, and old rumors begin to surface, threatening to pull them apart. Their connection is strong, but will it be enough to hold them together when the rumors take a dangerous turn?
Or will Hallie be left to fight it all alone?

Review by Allana
Argh! you have no idea how much I loved this book! I could put the damn thing down, I took it to the toilet, the bedroom. I even had to take it with me on the car journey (which I never do) as I had to finish it before going to see a movie I’ve been wait forever for, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to concentrate! Even throughout the movie Hallie and Nate were on my mind!
let’s talk about Hallie! She has to deal with a lot of crapola in her life, some of it due to childish bullies that want to make her life hell! her attitude to them… She didn’t give a hooha about it! She let them get on with it. but like everyone else, there’s only so much one person can take before they break. I connected with Hallie from the first page and I wanted to protect her much like Nate wanted to.
now Nate *Le sigh* hello new book boyfriend material! He’s hot, geeky and he’s a protector! I love love love when men go all alpha and will do anything to protect their women, it just does something to me! I wanted to punch him a couple of times and tell him to get his head out of his behind!
The ending is totally not what I was expecting but I’m actually happy with ghe way it did. I hope it’s maybe a sign that there could possibly be a book 2? Annie? Yes? Please?
well done Annie on another amazing read! one that will be in my heart for a very long time!!! if I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!
