A Girl, a Guy, a Tournament and a Challenge

The Girl: At a time when most girls obsess about homecoming and high school prom, Rainy Dey spent her senior year caring for her dying mother. So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.

The Guy: College senior, Aaron Donavan, aka Mr. Hot-and-Knows-It, is President of the Clubhouse, a social club for the college’s most wealthy and popular guys. Aaron can have any girl on campus except the one who challenges and excites him the most—Rainy Dey.

The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about the tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.

The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?

My Review...


'Pop' we lost another virgin! 



This book was a super quick and sweet read. Maybe a bit too sweet but a nice clean NA book. 

Rainy first meets Aaron the minute she steps on campus and is immediately drawn to him but of course, of course they are from different worlds and shouldn't be together plus Aaron was a player with  a 'game'. So of course with self doubt (loads of it) and a cautious heart she goes against her brains and decides to take a chance on the player.



But....lo and behold there is tons of miscommunication and in my opinion a numerous amount of times of forgiveness which happened way to quick and a relationship that escalated quick quickly.  Every time Aaron screwed up which were many Rainy didn't even put a fight and forgive him over and over again but in the end it was worth it.

I hope that there relationship is strong enough to last when the odds are against them.

3 Thumbs up!
