When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Adorable long-haired girl in vintage blouse laughing while handsome boy with tanned skin kissing her in cheek. Young man with dark short hair gently embracing girlfriend while spending time with her.
The prologue on this book gutted me. When Henley’s best friend, Catherine, dies of cancer just days before she turns 18, it leaves Henley absolutely destroyed. And determined to finish up her best friend’s bucket list of things Cat never got to do before she died. Yes, getting revenge on the guy who broke Catherine’s heart is immature and a bit cruel, but there is the basis of this wonderful, love/hate romance.

Because Lincoln is nothing like Henley expected when she sets out to seduce him. He’s sweet and generous, caring and kind, silly and smart, and all of the things she didn’t think the hot footballer would be. And the more time she spends with him, and the more they slip into boyfriend/girlfriend, the more Henley realizes that the guy whose heart she’s supposed to be breaking is the perfect guy for her. So does she choose her own love and happiness, or her loyalty to her best friend?

Of course, Lincoln finds out the truth, and when most books in this genre have the guy being the one seeking revenge or out to seduce then dump a girl for whatever reason, the hero is the wronged one here. It’s a crappy situation, but I love the way CA wrote it. Henley knows what she did was wrong. Lincoln knows what he did to Catherine was wrong. Especially considering his own past, but the situation just played into his insecurities and fears and made him more likable and less of a a-hole. And I really liked how CA showed these two working on their relationship in the aftermath. As she tried to regain his trust, Lincoln didn’t quite forget, even if he did forgive Henley.

Lincoln is a swoony college hero, and I kept turning the page, wanting to see what happened next but not wanting this book to end! And that is a sign of a great story!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
