I used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the books and majoring in being eighteen. But so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

I'm a huge Julie Cross fan (*ahem* Tempest series), so I was excited to get an eARC of this book to review. Thank you Random House and Netgalley. Isabel is a child doctor prodigy waiting to get into her dream residency program (at the age of 18!), when her dreams come crashing down on her, she decides to study at a local university for a few months. There she meets Marshall, her hot RA, who is off limits.

What I loved:

Isabel is completely different from any female lead I've read about so far. She is insanely smart, socially awkward, forward, yet vulnerable in her own way. I loved her wit, her quirky ways and her fire. I was laughing out loud at quite a few things she said or did, but also felt my heart breaking for her while she was going through certain things that happen in the book. How refreshing to have a female lead like this!

Marshall. Hot RA, smart, witty, and knows how to work the ladies. I really adored Marshall's character, especially once I found out his "weakness". He really opened himself up to Isabel and I loved reading about their relationship and how they worked together to overcome certain obstacles in their lives.

I am by no means a doctor, or even really know doctor lingo, but Julie Cross has a way of putting it all into terms that I actually understood. I loved Isabel's twitter posts at the beginning of some of the chapters. I want to follow her. :) I really enjoyed reading about Marshall and Isabel's study sessions. *fans self*

What left me wanting more:

I would love to read more about Isabel & Marshall. I hope there is a second book of the series that at least lets us get a glimpse of their life now! I will read anything Julie Cross writes! Love her writing and her characters!
