Favorite Quote: Nora to mean girl “Sometimes I wish I had a lower IQ so I could enjoy your company.”
The heroine: Nora Blakely – she has a genius IQ and is spinning out of control because of her terrible home life. She is tired of faking so much in her life and doing all she can to be the perfect everything for her mother (perfect daughter, perfect student, perfect manners, etc…). When she blanks out in front of a crowd at school and curses the school and everyone in the audience.
The Hero(es): Leo Tate – He lost his parents seven years ago when they were murdered by a carjacker. He became the guardian of his younger brother Sebastian and recently they moved to the area to open a new Gym. Sebastian is starting school at Briarwood Academy for his senior year.
The Story: After seeing Nora’s melt down on stage and the way her mother treated her afterwards, Leo can’t help his interest in her despite her being in high school with his brother. Though after getting to know her, she tells him how she was sick prior to entering kindergarten and is nearly 19 years old.
However, despite the fact that her age is no longer an issue, Leo still won’t start anything with Nora because he likes girls that know what to expect from him. Which is definitely not love and forever. After losing his parents, Leo doesn’t want anything to do with Love, since it is just a precursor to pain when the object of your affection leaves or is taken from you.
The narrators were perfect for the characters and I really enjoyed the story. There was a lot of pining, but I like the pining stage, especially when it isn’t just one sided. There were several super steamy scenes and I like that the Hero’s in the next few books were set up in this book but not the heroine’s. I tend to like a new couple in each book not two known main characters, so that their story starts in a prior book.
