Summary (from Goodreads):
First person in her family to go to college? CHECK.
Straight A’s? CHECK.
On track to graduate early? CHECK.
Social life? …..yeah, about that….
With just a few weeks until she graduates, Antonella DeLuca’s beginning to worry that maybe she hasn’t had the full college experience. (Okay... Scratch that. She knows she hasn't had the full college experience).
So Nell does what a smart, dedicated girl like herself does best. She makes a "to do" list of normal college activities.
Item #1? Hook up with a jock.
Rusk University wide receiver Mateo Torres practically wrote the playbook for normal college living. When he’s not on the field, he excels at partying, girls, and more partying. As long as he keeps things light and easy, it's impossible to get hurt... again. But something about the quiet, shy, sexy-as-hell Nell gets under his skin, and when he learns about her list, he makes it his mission to help her complete it.
Torres is the definition of confident (And sexy. And wild), and he opens up a side of Nell that she's never known. But as they begin to check off each crazy, exciting, normal item, Nell finds that her frivolous list leads to something more serious than she bargained for. And while Torres is used to taking risks on the field, he has to decide if he's willing to take the chance when it's more than just a game.
Together they will have to decide if what they have is just part of the experiment or a chance at something real.
If you're a fan of reading New Adult books, then I'm sure you know Cora Carmack. Losing It was one of the very first NA novels I ever read, but it's her Rusk University series that I've really grown to love. Steadfast and loyal Carson McClain stole my heart in All Lined Up, and who couldn't fall for troubled bad boy Silas Moore in All Broke Down?
Yet, it's Mateo Torres who has always stolen the scene whenever he made an appearance in the previous books. Torres is the life of every Rusk University party and his wild antics are always good for a laugh. I've always been curious about the kind of girl who would capture his heart, and I couldn't be more excited to see him fall for studious Nell! This book may just be my favourite in the series. When May 12th arrives, I'll definitely be reading Cora Carmack's All Played Out right away!
