Review: I was really looking forward to reading this book after finishing up All Broke Down. I was so not what I thought it was going to be. And that as the best part, for some reason Carmack is just so able to flip what your thinking into something way better. I really fell in love with this book, mostly because Nell reminds me of me. I make lots of lists, even ones for what I should do in college to have fun. I am also very into my school work that everything kind of blurs together.
Anyway, Nell and the rest of the group are great. We learn more and more as this series goes on about how amazing the characters are. By the time the book was over I was starving for Stella’s book. Even though I know hers is going to be tough and maybe a little heart breaking, I want, no need to read it.
Mateo is also a lot more then what I thought at first. One of the best things he is, is a really great ( sweet) guy. The things he helps Nell discover and learn along with Nell teaching him a few things. Just wow. They are the cutest together.
I think the last thing that got me to take that last dive into this book was the list Mateo makes for Nell. I just thought that’s it, I’m done. I love you now.

First person in her family to go to college? CHECK.
Straight A’s? CHECK.
On track to graduate early? CHECK.
Social life? …..yeah, about that….
With just a few weeks until she graduates, Antonella DeLuca’s beginning to worry that maybe she hasn’t had the full college experience. (Okay… Scratch that. She knows she hasn’t had the full college experience).
So Nell does what a smart, dedicated girl like herself does best. She makes a “to do” list of normal college activities.
Item #1? Hook up with a jock.
Rusk University wide receiver Mateo Torres practically wrote the playbook for normal college living. When he’s not on the field, he excels at partying, girls, and more partying. As long as he keeps things light and easy, it’s impossible to get hurt… again. But something about the quiet, shy, sexy-as-hell Nell gets under his skin, and when he learns about her list, he makes it his mission to help her complete it.
Torres is the definition of confident (And sexy. And wild), and he opens up a side of Nell that she’s never known. But as they begin to check off each crazy, exciting, normal item, Nell finds that her frivolous list leads to something more serious than she bargained for. And while Torres is used to taking risks on the field, he has to decide if he’s willing to take the chance when it’s more than just a game.
Together they will have to decide if what they have is just part of the experiment or a chance at something real.
