Summary: Kat Caruso wishes her brain had a return policy, or at least a complaint hot-line. The defective organ is constantly distracted, terrible at statistics, and absolutely flooded with inappropriate thoughts about her boyfriend’s gorgeous best friend, Alec…who just so happens to be her brand new math tutor. Who knew nerd was so hot?
Kat usually goes through tutors like she does boyfriends—both always seem to bail when they realize how hopeless she is. It’s safer for her heart to keep everyone at arm’s reach. But Alec is always stepping just a little too close.
Alec Stone should not be fantasizing about Kat. She’s adorable, unbelievably witty, and completely off limits. He’d never stab his best friend in the back…
But when secrets are revealed, the lines of loyalty are blurred. To make it count, Alec must learn messy human emotions can’t be solved like a trigonometry function. And Kat has to trust Alec may be the first guy to want her for who she is, and not in spite of it. – Goodreads
To me, this was a perfect New Adult read! I loved that the storyline was unique, with strong characters driving the plot and I loved the issue they tackled! Honestly, there wasn’t really anything that I’d change with this book. I wish more authors wrote this way, there was romance without it being mindless.
Kat works hard at keeping those around her at arms length. She has perfected the craft and most don’t expect more from her. She’s gorgeous, that beautiful ‘it’ girl gorgeous and her parents never encouraged her to go to college. However, she wants more but she is going through tutors fast. She’s always struggled in school but she refuses to give up.
Alec is smart, really smart and he’s always assumed that there isn’t much more to Kat than what you see. That all changes when he starts to tutor her and realizes how sharp and witty she is and how determined she is.
These two are adorable! I loved their story and how they both had these preconceived ideas of the other and how wrong they were. A fantastic read and for someone who wants to try out the New Adult genre I highly recommend this as your first read!
