Stuck spending the summer with his screwed up family, Gabriel Walker is bored out of his mind and looking for an adventure. And he seems to find it with the hot girl who lives next door. The attraction between them is instant. Electric. Soon they’re spending every stolen minute together. Talk about the perfect summer fling…
Lucy isn’t what she seems. She doesn’t live next door—she’s the girl who’s been hired to house sit for the summer while the family goes on a worldwide vacation. If Gabe wants to believe she’s a spoiled rich girl looking for some fun, she can go along with that. After the summer, she’ll never see him again.
They don’t count on running into each other at college. Now Lucy must keep up the pretense of being a rich girl—and it’s exhausting. She knows she’s falling in love with Gabe and she’s scared he feels the same. Will he still care about her when he discovers the truth?

What would be the harm in pretending you're someone else for a while? Especially if that someone else is rich and is vacationing in an amazing house for the summer? Nothing is wrong with it at all. Unless...
Gabe is the rich kid forced to spend the summer vacationing with his family. Lucy is the sexy girl next door that Gabe is obsessed with watching her strut her stuff swimming and lounging by the pool all day.
He finally gets up the nerve to go over and talk to her. They had an awful start to their summer fling, how does one really fall asleep mid make-out session anyways, Gabe? But I guess Gabe was hot enough, and Lucy was bored enough to give him another shot.
All was fun in the summer sun until the two go back to school and unexpectedly see each other. That's when Lucy runs in the opposite direction. Her lies are about to catch up with her and she's going to need to come clean if their feelings towards each other have any shot at true love.
I loved how Gabe was so straight forward, "I'm not the sensitive man who'll value your virginity and offer up my love in exchange for it." I thought it was cool that he didn't bullshit and sweet talk his way just to get sex. I was however, secretly hoping Lucy wouldn't give it up to him.
I liked how Gabe would assure Lucy that she didn't need to diet. On the other hand though, if she wants to have a salad, let her have a damn salad! Either way, it was nice that her not only showed her, but told her how much he loved her body, building her self-esteem about her body image in her mind. It did get a little tiring listening to her obsess over her weight though, it went on a little too long for my liking.
There was a mixture of funny AND hot in the book.
"Straddle my face."
"Yeah. Ride my face, Lucy. Come on."
Being that she was very inexperienced, I found her reply hilarious and likely a very accurate response.
I loved Gabe and Lucy together. Fantastic chemistry, hot love, and the ability to forgive and grab their love by the horns and go full force ahead. No matter what scary things may come along in their lives, these two have the winning formula to make it through anything.
In the Dark is another great NA book from Monica. Now we just have to wait for the story of the last lone man standing, Tristan.
Meet the crew!

Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn't stop him. More like her horrible behavior seems to make him want her more.
When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade's confused. There's more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her...or could he?
Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.
Tristan Chadwick is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.
Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?
