Evie is of to Crestwood College on a scholarship. She's sad to be leaving her uncle Jim but excited for new opportunities. She makes quick friends with adorkable football player Russell who she feels that she feels an instant connection with as well as the steadfast and kind Freddie.
All goes well on her first day until she meets Reed who is determined that she is an abomination who tries to run her out of town because of who she is. Good thing Evie is stubborn even in the face uncertainty and fear.
Russell is adorable and Reed is brooding mystery and they both lay a claim to Evie's heart, but in the end none of the fate crap matters, Evie makes her decision and doesn't spend time going back and fourth on it-so the love triangle is a bit more bearable than most.
Evie is an actually fairly not terrible main character. I think that is in part to do with her two good girl friends Buns and Brownie (it's okay, I can't with the names either). They help Evie when she is down in the dumps and are just a ball of fun and energy.
Another thing that's really annoying. The way college kids speak in this book. WE DID NOT TALK LIKE THAT. I am not too far removed from college that I don't remember. In fact, I was in college when this book was written. Never, may I repeat, NEVER did I use the words "phat" or "flossin'" as cool or "wut" or "playa" for player.
I cannot with the vocabulary and goody-two-shoeness of Evie. Or the fact that Buns calls Everything and Everyone sweetie at the end of every sentence. STOP. okay, despite the complains, I really did enjoy it and there is severe betrayal and heartbreak that I did not see coming.
Now what I do see coming...Russell being really annoying in the next book.
No waiting on my end because I'm picking it up ASAP.
For those who care, this is a clean paranormal romance suited for 10yrs+ in my opinion.
