Back cover blurb: Take a chance and change your life…

College is where Hannah Gregory plans to follow in her dad’s footsteps as a chemistry prodigy-except she bombs her first test. And now her future isn’t so certain. Worse, she’s not sure she wants it anymore. Salvation comes from an unlikely place-a used bookstore and the sexy Ben Fisher, the passionate college senior who works there.

Ben is trapped in a life mapped out for him. Trapped in a future career as a lawyer to make his father happy. Trapped pursuing a girl he doesn’t even like because she fits into a world he doesn’t want but can’t escape. But then he meets the beautiful and quirky Hannah. And for the first time, he knows what it means to truly want something.

So he gives in to being her friend. Then to wanting her. Then to kissing her. But freedom comes with a cost, and it isn’t long before their carefully planned lives begin to fall apart…

My review: I’m a bit sad I can’t give this sweet, easy read a full five stars. On paper, I should have liked this more. Bookstore Boy and the whole premise of falling in love in a bookshop is totally swoony, and I loved the first part of this so much as Ben recommended books to Hannah and their relationship grew. I even added some of Ben’s recommendations to my TBR list. But then Ben fell into the trap of being a stupid boy, and the thing with Alex made me suspect his motives. His issues with his father were realistic, but it became a little repetitive after a while. I wanted more Ben and Hannah and more book recommendations! Nevertheless, I enjoyed the writing and will definitely read Amanda Weaver’s other work.
