“I’m going to tear the fuck out of that pussy tonight, do you understand me?” I growled. I wanted her. I craved her. She was mine.

Find out why Chase Winchester no longer wants to be the bad boy….

Gia King was more than tired of living under her father’s thumb. The Mafia King turned FBI agent was overly protective of her every move and college was her one and only saviour. Going to Auburn University was her dream, and she couldn’t wait to be free. She was going to let her hair down and shuck the good girl appearance for a new side – a darker, sexier, and ten times worse, Gia. She was ready to push the boundaries.

Chase Winchester was a God. No, seriously. Women all across campus sighed heavily when their eyes stumbled across him. He was arrogant, sexy, and he knew it. AU was just another reason for him to spread his feathers and dip his fingers into some prime sorority girls.

Until Gia King came into his life, knocking him right on his ass. She was everything a man would want and yet, somehow, she was off limits. There was no way he could force himself to take her, unless she truthfully wanted him.

College, romance, and two families who were hell bent on being enemies. Can love between these two really transpire or will everyone else have the last say.

Sometimes you have to chase what you want.

I’d advise a reader age of 17+

Review ***SPOILERS!!***

The first thing I felt from this story was Gia’s loneliness, and Chase’s hatred towards himself. The love story between Gia and Chase starts very quickly, from the very first page even!

I loved the dual narrative, seeing the story from both points of view was great, though at times frustrating as you just wanted to bash their heads together!

I hated how Chase kept feeling he wasn’t good enough for anyone and actually was quite annoyed at Chance putting his brother down the way he did. Speaking of Chance I must say I LOVED his and Taylor’s first reaction to each other!

In the scene where Gia’s parents walk in on her and Chase, my hand flew to my mouth. I was mortified! Everyone involved seemed to handle it pretty well though. Between the hate and the love Gia and Chase felt towards each other I felt as though I had whiplash!

When the police arrested Chase I felt so frustrated, he was defending Gia and himself in his own home and so was glad when Gia’s father intervened. The feeling of family is incredibly strong in this book and I loved how they all seemed to have great support systems in their parents.

I really enjoyed this book, I didn’t want it to end. It is fair to say I got incredibly greedy with this book and wanted each moment between Chase and Gia to last longer. It definitely left me wanting more!
