No doubt about it, Sebastian ‘Oz’ Osborne is the university’s most celebrated student athlete—and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you or anyone else thinks.

Make no mistake, Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent student—but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags—and Oz Osborne is all three.

She’s smart, sarcastic—and not what he expected.


He wants to be friends.
He wants to spend time with her.
He wants to drive her crazy.

Maria’s Review

➦Well, this just wasn’t fair. Jock/tutor trope is my absolute favorite and I haven’t read a good one in so long that this completely hit the spot. Boy, did it hit the spot. And although I’m rating all the books in this series 5 stars, (let’s be honest, I PLOWED through three in a matter of two days) this installment was the one I loved the most. 

➦It was amazing to read about this jackass brooding guy, who acts like a jerk all the time, grow up and let in a girl. A girl who he would have never even glanced at twice if he didn’t get stuck with her being his tutor. 

➦Ok, one thing. It’s been done before. So. many. times. But you know what? If you’re gonna do something that’s been done before then do it right. And let me tell you, Sara Ney has done it right. I am officially a fan of her writing and I’ll be 1 clicking her stuff with a speed of light in the future. 

➦One thing that amazes me the most is this write’s ability to create tension and excitement without having exuberant amounts of character development. I’m really not sure what kind of sorcery Sara Ney possesses but I was in love with these characters from the very start and I stayed glued to this book from cover to cover.
