Blurb: As a freshman both in love and in college, sometimes there are painful lessons to be learned.
Excited to begin his first year of college, Brett Bridgeworth has just one problem: he sucks at math. Luckily there’s the sensual and mysterious math tutor, Jeremy Price, to help him out. It isn’t long before Jeremy is tutoring Brett in more than just pie charts, but it isn’t until they split up that Brett discovers Jeremy’s twisted, obsessive side.
Sam Hawthorne is two years ahead of Brett, and they share a strong mutual attraction. When Brett breaks it off with Jeremy and gets involved with Sam, disturbing things start happening. It soon becomes obvious that Jeremy isn’t willing to let Brett go without a fight.
Review: S.C. Wynne has come up with another good story. I have not read many of this authors stories but the ones I have read were always fascinating. Now I am not one for new adults or college students but this one was pretty damn good.
The story is told in the first person point of view which kind of drives me a bit nuts. I always want to hear from both characters to get into the way they both feel at all times. The only issues I had with this book was the way it read, seeming like a diary or journal type of story which for me loses interest pretty fast. However I loved the way the characters just came together for me.
Brett is having fun at school, but he just can’t seem to get into math. He definitely needs a bit of help. He is afraid of letting his father down. Jeremy seems good at first but he is not all that he seems. Brett must trust his friends but the problem is his tutor turns up to be crazy after they ended things. Things are about to heat up, when Brett gets involved with Sam.
I liked Sam the most; however Brett comes off a bit needy. Now with this story it seems like there are stories mixed in with the original story. Like Brett and his dad for one.
It was a great story and I did enjoy reading it. It has hot sex, suspense, action and a bit of quirk to it. I would definitely recommend it.
