Summary from "Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would...and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action. Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton? As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows" My Review:

This book was easily 5 stars for me. For a few weeks, I'd been in a reading slump. I came across this, remembering how much I loved the first book in this series called Ten Tiny Breaths. I read it in 2 days because it was so engaging.

In this book we meet Livie who is on her way to start college at Princeton. Having lost her parents 7 years before, she's worked very hard to get into this school as she feels it will make her parents most proud and she will be living out her father's dreams for her.

When she gets there, though, its not at all what she thought. Getting drunk for the first time, and finding herself socializing more than planned, not getting the grades that have always come easily to her are just a few of her problems.

During her first week she meets Ashton. The bad boy who looks so good. They have instant chemistry, but she knows he's not for her and she really doesn't like him. She starts dating his best friend and roommate, Conner. However, Ashton is always in the back of her mind. And the front of her mind. Basically she's thinking about him constantly, but knows Conner is the better choice for her. He's his looking, a dedicated student.... That's where it ends.....

Ashton seems to have his own dark history that she can't figure out. He's handsome and funny and doesn't seem to take life seriously. Or does he?

She starts to question everything she's ever planned for her life. She's starting to wonder who she's living for? Her dreams or old dreams that she made as a kid before her parents died.

I highly suggest you read this book. There are so many emotions I experienced while reading this. As with her first book in this series, she has a way of pulling you in and being a fly on the wall of the story, or has you feeling like you are one of the characters.

5 out of 5 stars!
