“I like you.” His voice is low and soft, which I don’t deserve. I look away, down the rutted parking lot.
“Don’t... waste those words on me.”
He touches my cheek. “You just need someone to show you.”
“No.” I ease back again. “I don’t. So please, Torrin, stop trying to swoop in and save me. I don’t need saving.”

College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine

Cindy's Review: I really liked this new adult novel. ;) Quinn is an amazing character, although she suffers the horror of her sister's suicide. Therefore, she throws away her love.  She doesn't want to fall in love. She gets a useless boyfriend man-whore, whose overprotective and a cheater. But at the same time, he's kind of sincere. But Quinn just uses Derek for reminding her no to fall in love. But then she meets Torrin. 

:D Torrin is hot. Let's see, he has muscles, he works out. Torrin ends up helping Quinn a lot. And of course, they end up falling for each other. Or Quinn tries very hard not to fall for Torrin. Torrin helps Quinn get through her hardship and learn something that she never tried. Being in love.  

Of course, everything is going fine....and Quinn is getting used to falling in love. Being a jealous girlfriend. Kissing. Hugging. Etc. Everything's going fine, until Quinn finds out Torrin's identity. That changes everything Quinn feels for Torrin. Honestly, I don't think it should, but it did. And Quinn gotta learn how to get over it. How to love again. She needs to learn how to be part of a family again.

The ending was fab~ It ended quite nice. ;D Right after my tears were my smiles. So that's great.

One really big part of this book, or a really big part of Quinn is when her sister killed herself. To Quinn, her sister is perfect, inside out. Her sister was her role-model. So she blamed her sister's death on her ex-boyfriend, Evan. Yeah. Funny how I remember Evan's name and not her sisters. Omg.  Therefore, Quinn claims that she will not ever fall in love. 

I admit, I did cry in the part revolving her sister. And especially that letter. It seemed that her sister tried really hard to become a role model for her. And I guess I can say, I'm proud of Quinn. From the beginning to the end, she changed. And she learned how to finally love again. 

I rate this a 9~
