Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jillian had a plan: celebrate the end of her first year of college with an amazing summer full of beaches, barbeques, and bonfires. When her mom insists she needs a summer job, and her boyfriend spends more time with his band than with her, Jillian’s plans go down the drain.
Grant had a plan: finish his Masters, get a great job at Google, and get the hell out of Georgia. He might be giving up some of the fun of his youth, but he knows his all work and no play method would be worth it when his dreams came true.
But things never go according to plan.
When temptation brings them together and tragedy tears them apart, Jillian and Grant will be forced to choose: fight for their dreams, or fight for each other.
My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars

19-year-old Jillian is home from university for the summer, and starting a job that her mother has secured for her.
The IT guy Grant at her new job is gorgeous, and she feels instantly attracted to him. The problem is her boyfriend of 4 years – Christian, who she still loves.
Who will Jillian choose? Can she leave Christian after 4 years together? And does Christian really deserve her?
This was a good new adult romance, and I really enjoyed it.
Jillian was a sweet girl who tried to do the right thing, and felt guilty at even dreaming about another man whilst she was in a relationship with Christian. It was obvious that she felt more for Grant than she felt for Christian though, and it was also obvious how much she tried to squash her feelings.
The storyline in this was pretty good, and I didn’t immediately guess what would happen.
The romance between Jillian and Grant was really sweet, and it was nice to see how they flirted with little glances and gestures rather than being blatant. When they did eventually give in to their attraction it was hot! The pages sizzled with the chemistry between them, and this was definitely one of those books where you find yourself going back to re-read certain scenes because they were so good!
The ending was also good, and I was pleased with how things turned out. I was a little hesitant over whether some details were 100% accurate at points, but this didn’t interfere with my enjoyment of the story.
Overall; a good new adult romance.
7.5 out of 10
