  Aubrey earned her love ‘em and leave ‘em reputation with her serial dating past. A pregnancy scare makes her see the light and change her ways. She gets serious about school and stops dating – until she meets Luka and falls head over heels for him.

Luka doesn’t trust easily after having his heart crushed by the girl next door. When he meets Aubrey, he doesn’t think she’s relationship material because of her past – even though he’s drawn to her.

3.5 stars--

So why did I rate this book lower than the other two books in the series?
well to answer that question, its simple. The book was good, but it wasn't great. It had more of a calm plot compared to the other books in the series. Not much happened in the book. I think that it could of had a little more conflict. 

--Luka was Russian. I loved when he would talk to Aubrey in Russian during some of their moments.
--Luka was smart. Usually in a book it doesn't really mention anything about the guy being good at anything except sports & being a manwhore.
--Luka plays Hockey. Usually I'm not into sports, but this book made hockey sound so fun. I would actually like to go to a hockey game now.
--Aubrey acted more mature. In previous books, I wasn't really a fan of Aubrey. Towards the end of the first book, that's when you actually start to notice her changing a little.

--Grapefruit: enough Said
--Kat: enough said.
--I wanted a little more on what their plan was after graduating.

To pretty much some up the book, I liked it and I liked Luka. He was such an alpha in this book. His alpha meter was turned on pretty much all through the book. But I'm not complaining. He didn't hold anything back. And Aubrey was a new Aubrey to be honest. She wasn't like the one in the first book that was boy crazy, she was toned down quiet a bit. I also like that she went to Alexa when she wanted some advice. It use to be the other way around so that was nice.

“Oomph,” I grunted into a hard chest as warm hands grasped my arms to steady me. I took a deep breath and a woodsy scent that was somehow both spicy and a little bit sweet hit my nose. I didn’t think I’d ever met a guy who smelled this good before.
“You okay?” a deep voice murmured.
“Yes,” I whispered as I looked up into green eyes, my hands resting against his chest.
“Good. Wouldn’t want to start my night off by mowing down defenseless women, now would I?” he asked as I moved away.
I couldn’t help the laugh that bubbled up at that since I’m the one who ran into him. “No, we certainly wouldn’t,” I said as I stepped into the elevator.
I watched his ass, lovingly hugged by his jeans, as he walked away with a couple of guys I hadn’t even noticed. And just like that, my libido jumped back to life. Holy fucking shit.

--About the Author--
7328358 I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing. I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it. When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"
