I am a slut. No worries. I’ve come to terms with it, and you will too. I’m not one of those girls who thinks she’s too plain, too fat, too skinny, too shy … no, I don’t have that kind of luck. I’m the girl who knows she’s just right for everyone. — Denver

A reputation as a manwhore–with–a–heart–of–gold tends to precede me. But, I don’t do girls with issues, that is until this girl. It’s this girl I want to fix. This girl I want to protect. And maybe … more. — Ransom

Being in love with the same girl your entire life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. She uses me in every way imaginable. How does she see me? I am her perpetual one-night stand. No strings, no attachments. Just mind-numbing sex … for her anyway. — Greer

Feeling like the life is being choked out of her in the small town of Anaconda, Montana, Denver Dempsey craves the escape that college offers … even if that means leaving her “best friend with benefits” and looking for a new way to forget. Thinking she’s found the perfect hookup in Ransom, Denver’s outlook on college is bright. That is, until Greer shows up looking for a second chance, and Ransom’s interest turns to hatred.

Love. Hate. Triangle.

*Spoiler free!!*
I would give this a 3.5/4 star rating. I did enjoy it, it seemed a bit slow for me to get into at the start but I persevered  and did get into the story in the end.

Denver basically doesn’t think much of herself at all, she calls herself a ‘slut’ and seems OK to be seen as this. As the story goes on you can see she’s not the ‘slut’ in the fullest sense of the word at all, she just has had a rough childhood, an awful mother who really isn’t there for her daughter at all and couldn’t care less! On to whichever husband she can get, despite what they may or may not try on Denver.

Greer, Denver’s best friend since birth is the only friend she has, he loves her more than just friends and is prepared to be there for her in whatever way he can get. He knows she is using him but because of how he feels he is willing to be used by her.

Once she starts college and finds that Greer has followed her there they remain friends but he still wants more, despite how they ended during the summer. Bring in Ransom, a gorgeous bull rider ready and willing to make Denver his.  They seem to have a love/hate relationship going on but you can see the definite spark there.

I like the POV’s from each of them, it allows you to see into their heads more, get their thoughts and feelings on situations. Denver is torn between Ransom and Greer, feeling that she should make a go with her best friend because of what they have been through but she has always admired Ransom too in his field of expertise and it seems the feeling is mutual. Austin was great and had me laughing at a few of his comments too.

Toward the end things come out to do with Greer, what he did in the past to warrant Denver getting her reputation and then the ‘incident’ after, which was quite hard to read and you really felt for Denver as she was so confused and yet blamed herself for it all, and it definitely wasn’t something that i would have expected to happen either!

The ending was a bit of a surprise to be honest, i didn’t expect Ransom’s confession as to his particular ‘interests’ in the bedroom department lol It ended so that you will really need to read the next one to find out more!
