The Color of Us by Laura Ward is the second book in the College Bound Series featuring Alexis (Lex) and Liam. I did not get an opportunity to read the first book, The Pledge, and had no problems understanding and relating to this story. I was really moved reading The Color of Us. I felt the characters were very well developed as well as the story line. The story was so much more than a typical college romance novel.
I don’t want to give too many details as I do not want to spoil anything. Just know that Lex is going through a very tough time in her life. She has felt empty until she meets Liam, a bad boy who has gotten into some trouble. Even though they are opposites in personality, they both are very good for each other. Liam helps Lex feel again…making her happy and smile again, which in turn helps Liam believe in himself.
The Color of Us is a must read novel! I went through so many emotions while reading this book. There really was no aspect of this book that I did not like. One of my favorites of 2016….especially Liam! <3
“Liam O’Connell should come with a warning label – or maybe several. Warning: Not approved by parents. Warning: May cause heart palpitations. Warning: Magic lips may result in difficulty breathing. Warning: Intense feelings may cause panties to burst into flames.”
Taren needs a do-over. She’s decided the best way to put the high school bullies behind her is to pledge a Taylor-Swift-lip-syncing, beer-guzzling, sorority. Sisterhood helps Taren find the acceptance she’s always craved, but not the love she needs.
Alec wants freedom. To escape his father’s iron fist and unrealistic expectations, he pledges a campus acrobatics club where he finds that drugs and alcohol aren’t the only ways to get high. His addiction to danger helps him gain his independence, but it comes at a heavy price.
When the two cross paths, Alec fears his undeniable attraction to the party girl just might threaten everything he’s worked so hard to earn. Taren hasn’t forgotten that Alec humiliated her back in high school, but she also can’t deny the chemistry they share.
Alec and Taren have nothing in common, but fate is bound and determined to bring them together. They know falling in love is a risk, and yet it’s too hard to ignore. When their worlds clash and they both end up suffering, will they fight to stay together? Or are some pledges too hard to keep?
