☆✮ My Review ✮☆
#OMIGAH!! JUST THE BOOK I WAS WAITING FOR!! LOVED THIS!
"Dean Heyward Di-Laurentis is in my blood now. I didn't expect the intense sexual chemistry between us, but it's here, and it's addictive, and I don't know how I can ever give it up."
Dean, man oh man, don't I understand how you did not contrive a STD by now, you sex fiend.
You thought the other men in the Off-Campus series were players. Pssh, Dean puts them to shame, and has no qualms about his sexual conquests out in the open for all eyes to see.
I really enjoyed his story as I had always wondered about him~~ Why didn't he care to play hockey pro? What's his backstory? Which lucky lady is it that will finally be his game changer and turn over his womanizing and man whore days? And why is he like that in the first place?
I thought his pairing with Allie was a sound and logical one, as it was basically two people different as night and day coming together and making rediscovering themselves while finding love.
Allie is the epitome of a good girl and what they call a "nester" when it comes to relationships.
Dean is a "wham-bam-thankyou- mam" fella who makes no apologies for what he does and how he lives his life.
Allie has dreams of making it big in acting.
Dean is at a standstill of what he wants to do with his life.
And yet, they complete each other completely and irrevocably.
I think what worked the most about this story was that it touched on real life subjects. In every young person's life, college is about forging your future, exploring, and making some very hard decisions.
Dean and Allie experience that in spades, while coming to terms with some very heavy past and present themes, losses, and setbacks that test every aspect of their relationship to the fullest.
Will they have what it takes to make things work between them? Or will everything crumble and fall apart?
"But maybe he needed to fall apart in order to learn that life isn't perfect, that bad things do happen and you can't stop living when they do."
Fans of this series will not let down, and will fall in love with every second of this gem! I know I did!
I am holding my breath for the next book of the series already, as we do get a big shocker at the end of The Score that will leave you shocked and itching for more!!
Can't, can't wait!
