This is one of those rare books that bring out such a range of emotions it is hard to figure out which emotion speaks the strongest to you. 
This is a book about three friends in their Sophomore year in college. They are about as different as they could be. 

Melody is one of those super romantic girls, who thinks that they are going to find a fairy tale knight and ride off into the sunset. 

Imani is very career driven and refuses to get involved with anyone, no matter how she feels about them. 

Lance is a football player who loves to be a womanizer. Even though he clearly doesn’t respect the women he has one night stands with, he loves Melody and Imani with a brotherly and protective fierceness. 

Things are going well until Melody starts dating Kevin. Warning bells are going off in Imani and Lance’s head, but what can they do? Melody would never believe that something was wrong with her prince charming. 

Meanwhile Imani is having trouble’s of her own. She really likes Trevor and they are great friends. 
She really can’t afford to get involved with anyone…but will that decision ultimately come back to haunt her?

The end of this book is like fireworks exploding. Anyone who has felt the effects of abuse will cringe. 
I have been touched by abuse, but it was a family friend and I never knew the relationship very well. 
Anyone else might be too affected to really enjoy this book, but I think it is an important subject. 

Overall, this book was a great read! I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens to the three friends after the ending of this book. The good news is I don’t have to wait long.
Coming Nov. 19th!
