Brief Synopsis: Ryan James doesn’t believe in love. It’s a truth he learned early in life. A truth he carried with him into adulthood. He broke his golden rule one time, but Myndi trampled all over his heart, cementing his belief that love is a lie and not worth the effort. Now he’s returned to his cynical views and promiscuous lifestyle, racking up more notches on his bedpost than he can count. Until Summer Petersen comes crashing into his world, threatening to knock down his walls with her tempting body and sunny, sweet personality.

Summer is determined to lose her V-card before she starts freshman year of college, and the hot, older guy with the cute dimples, dazzling smile, and rippling biceps is just the man for the job. Ryan doesn’t take much persuading, and he rocks her world, giving her a night to remember. When they walk away, there’s an unspoken agreement it was a one-time thing. Ryan doesn’t do feelings, and Summer doesn’t want to be tied down at eighteen. But when she moves into her brother Austin’s apartment, she’s shocked to discover her new roomie is the guy who recently popped her cherry.

Ryan can’t believe he slept with Austin’s baby sister, and if he finds out, he’ll literally kill him. Keeping their hook up a secret is nonnegotiable. Keeping his thoughts, and his hands, off Summer, less so. Because the longer he’s around her, the more he finds himself catching feelings for the gorgeous brunette. Summer doesn’t want to care for her older brother’s best friend, but Ryan makes her feel things she’s never felt before, and she’s slowly falling under his spell. Embarking on an illicit affair behind Austin’s back has train wreck written all over it, but provided they keep their feelings in check, they can end this before he ever finds out. 

It’s not like either of them is in love. Right?

My Thoughts (May Include Spoilers):

Let me first start off this review with how much I envy Summer. She is such a strong, independent, confident and self assured young woman. She is determined to live her life (and lose her virginity) on her own terms. It’s such an important trait to portray to young woman who read. We have the power to choose what we do with our bodies, which is very appropriate to the culture today.

The relationship between Summer and Ryan is sexy, fun and angsty. I personally love the hot older guy/brother’s best friend troupe. The fact that they are now roommates, makes this story even better. The sexual tension and chaos that follows, makes this book hard to put down.

Another fact I enjoy about this book and about Siobhan’s books in general, is that she takes secondary characters from her other books and shines a light on them, in their own books. I love being in the same world and learning more about the characters in it.

This book was a great read with some intense scenes that I did not expect!

My Notes While Reading This Book:

Characters from When Forever Changes

I love when she has secondary characters from different books as leads in another book. MY FAV!

Main Character - Summer is amazing. I want her confidence in who she is and her self worth.

Ryan James is adorable and sexy, although, I usually don’t go for blondes.

Another brilliant romance by Siobhan.
