April 30th, 2016
Clarabelle Wright doesn’t believe in someone else creating her happily ever after. In fact, she has spent her entire life ensuring a future for herself. When the family finances fall further in debt, her big college dreams are put on hold. Beaumont University has one thing to offer, a full ride, and Clara has no other choice but to accept. She’s the reliable daughter, the responsible one. But what she truly desires is adventure and passion, and she doesn’t expect to find either at the small town university. That is until she accidentally catches the alluring eye of the Adam Beaumont. He’s entitled, careless, and a shameless flirt. Clara knows a man of his beastly reputation is nothing but trouble…trouble wrapped in gorgeous, untamed trims.
But Adam has a tempting offer to make. One that will keep his mother off his back so he can continue his regularly scheduled life filled with big parties and beautiful women. It sounds like the perfect plan until a certain beauty proves to be a much bigger challenge than he ever expected. Worse, he can’t seem to get her off his mind.
Confident that she’s too smart to fall for his games, Clara accepts. But when two headstrong forces begin to clash, someone will have to fold or break all their rules.
Clarabelle’s dream was to go to an Ivy League College near a big city. When her family came into financial difficulties, she worked really hard and received a full scholarship to Beaumont University. Not exactly where she wanted to go, but she was making the best of it. She had a great roommate, Rose, and made several friends including Adam Beaumont.
Adam’s family established Beaumont University and his mother is currently the Dean of the University. His mother expects leadership and good manners, but all Adam wants is to party, have fun with his friends, and hook up. When his mother finds out about his affair with his TA, she makes him retake the class. Lucky for him Clara is in his class and agrees to tutor him. Clara likes Adam, but is not interested in his womanizing behaviors. Adam finally decides it is time to grow up and actually try to be the man Clara deserves.
I enjoyed the story and the characters. There was some drama with Olivia, Adam’s ex-girlfriend, and Corin, a friend of Adam’s, who is jealous of Adam’s relationship with Clara. The sex scenes were on the mild side. If you like a sweet college romance, you should give this a read.
Allison Smith lives in North Carolina with her wonderful husband and their spoiled mutt, Bubba. When she is not diving into a new story, Allison enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, and day trips to downtown Raleigh. Her love of fairy tales inspired her first published novel, Tame the Beast
