My review:

First... I have to get this out of the way... I wish the cover was different... to reflect Lexi (who wasn't tattooed.... and was more of a "goodie goodie") and Derek.  And... the book needs some serious editing (even just for grammar and spelling).  But.... the story was a good one.  Really relatable.

While I didn't have anything similar to Lexi happen to me involving a tattooed bad-boy when I went off to college (unfortunately) I did find that the story brought back a lot of memories about heading off to my freshman year.  I vividly remember my parents dropping me off and crying my eyes out as it sunk in that I had gone off to college without knowing another single person.  I spent weeks and weeks trying to find my place... trying to connect with new friends... having mad crushes on all of the new boys.  It was such a huge struggle to go from the control of home and parents... to suddenly be in charge of your schedule, your routine, your meals.

The story and writing had a truly "real" feel to it.  Lexi struggled with wanting to still be the "good girl" but also wanting to experience new things.  Having (and liking) her new roommate (with her blue hair and tattoos) wasn't quite what she expected.  Neither were her wild bunch of friends and frat parties.  And Derek being rude then friendly, sarcastic then kind, dismissive and then caring.... really blew her mind.  Could anyone really blame her for getting swept up?
