Meg's Review:This novel was simply fantastic. Cora never ceases to amaze me with the worlds she creates and how one cannot help but be drawn into them. All is takes is one page.
Now Silas. With book one I really wasn't sure where I stood with him. It could have been because my mind was all up on Carson, but I wasn't a fan of Silas. As soon as this novel started, I wanted to be all up on him as well. Who knew. Silas has a lightness to him that you can see battling to beat out the dark. He wants to make better choices, he wants to be worthy of someone. When his bad choices leave him with pent up anger, and no football, he realizes he needs to make some changes, and fast. Dylan wants to dave the world. She wants to be that person that makes a difference. Her life hasn't been an easy one, but she stands strong and fights for what she believes in. This round, she believes in Silas. When Silas and Dylan cross paths is a sight to behold. I felt the electricity zapping between them from the first words they spoke to each other. Two opposite forces coming together to give us a story to behold. Dylan is a force to be rocked with, and the cocky and yet very broken Silas is a foe that puts her to the test. Don't worry though, Dylan's GOT THIS, she isn't now to back down from a fight as you will soon see.
Favorite Quote: "Dear World... In case you missed it, Silas Moore is jaw-dropping, mind-blanking, word-fumbling gorgeous. And he made me a sandwich. "
Cora up-shows herself even more with this book. I didn't think i could fall more in love with a character and she proved me wrong, t never know what I am going to get from her, other than a novel I will surely love. Theres characters are so well rounded and relatable, they you can't ell but see them in everyone you know. They remind you of yourself. I swear I see my self thinking about them days and months after the novels are over, knowing that I will soon get to jump back into bed with them.. or.. Uh..I mean with another book in their world. Ahem. This book is an easy read the flows wonderfully. The chapters are well placed and don't drag on. The writing is superb as well as the elopement and the plot twists that you don't see coming. I was a little broken reading this, I won't lie. I need the next book in this series and I need it now. Welcome to Rusk University. By the time you read this series you'll never want to leave.
Synopsis:In life, you can't only fight for what you believe in . . .sometimes you have to fight for what you love
Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.
Environmental issues, civil rights, education—you name it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and not at all her type, she can't help being fascinated with him.
Yet another lost cause.
Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it's trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He's met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn't think he's broken, and he definitely doesn't need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team.
Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.
Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.
