A Girl, a Guy, a Tournament and a Challenge
The Girl: At a time when most girls obsess about homecoming and high school prom, Rainy Dey spent her senior year caring for her dying mother. So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.
The Guy: College senior, Aaron Donavan, aka Mr. Hot-and-Knows-It, is President of the Clubhouse, a social club for the college’s most wealthy and popular guys. Aaron can have any girl on campus except the one who challenges and excites him the most—Rainy Dey.
The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about the tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.
The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?

This one is not to be missed! It had many elements that reminded me of other great books like Beautiful Disaster. This book is completely original! It is not even on the same lines as BD. It just had a guy with a reputation much like Travis did. Though Aaron is much more refined and not a fighter. The characters grabbed my attention and refused to let go until the book was over just like Beautiful Disaster did.
Rainy's life hasn't been easy. Now she's off to college and is trying to have fun. Her roommate steps in to help her right from the start by protecting her from Aaron and his friend. When she hears about the tournement she is appalled and decides to stay away from the hunk that is Aaron. To bad for her that Aaron has other plans.
Aaron was a little complicated. mostly I liked him but there were a few times (you'll know when) that I wanted to reach in the book and choke him.
The ending felt a tad rushed and I wish there was more to come. What happens when she meets his parents etc.... I want to know these things! :D
This book was fun, flirty, angsty, and romantic. I really wish that Dakota would make a series out of it.
I'd recommend this to those of you who like books that take place in a college scene, angsty romance, or books with a bad boy with a (mostly) good heart. ;-)
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I really, really, really liked it. Really!
