I had a past. It was dark. It was uglyβ€” it was my dirty secret.

No one knew the weight of the burdens that nearly consumed me.

I lived with a singular focusβ€”seeking revenge on my father.

Then the new girl, Jolee Ward, moved into the apartment above me and shattered my carefully constructed world.

We were like oil and water. . . until we weren’t.

Then we detonated like gasoline and fire, but the inferno threatened to destroy us both.

One night with her couldn’t erase years spent plotting.

Wellington University wasn’t big enough for the both of us.

MY REVIEW: I love the premise of six brothers bonded not by blood but by the family their adoptive parents created. The five in college are know as the Ridge Rogues and are hot hunks that rule the school by being cool not by cruelty. First up is Ford. The broody, mysterious one with loads of attitude and issues related to his sperm donor. His first encounter with the new girl, Jolee, turns into a hate/love relationship. They love to fight and argue and then the desire takes over. Ford and Jo are a steamy pair. The romance between Ford and Jolee was sexy with a few sweet parts when the lovers/enemies really connected. The handling of the traumatic situations in both of their pasts were sort of downplayed, especially in Jo’s case and weren’t very emotional. A little strange to me. I loved the brothers and all their personalities and look forward to their stories along with Jolee’s roommates who are set up for future stories with the rouges. The story seemed a little formulaic with not a lot of real drama and a couple of strange twists. It was a quick read with a good family, friends and brotherhood elements but didn’t grab me like I thought it would. Seemed a little flat but for the most part the romance held my attention and Ford and Jolee’s relationship was a sexy success.
