This NA College story continues the Good Girl book with Charlie and Dominic living together. There is drama with the two of them living as a couple with their pasts coming to smack them in their face. Dominic’s ex is getting married and guess who’s invited to the wedding? Also, Dom assures Charlie that her past doesn’t bother him in the least but that’s put to a test. Will the two of them be able to move on together or will it continue to drive them apart?

“He pulls back to stare down at me. ‘Since when did you care about getting caught or what other people thought?’

Perhaps since I heard your friends talking about me like that. Or since I realized that the jealousy I felt toward Mia is not over something as superficial as how she looks or whether she still wants you, but because she doesn’t have a past like mine which is now coming back to haunt me. Mia is an actual good girl. She was a virgin when she met Dominic, and he was her first. I was anything but. Yeah, she might have cheated on him, which in itself is unforgiveable, but it is why they finished. She doesn’t have photographs turning up, proving to her boyfriend what a tramp she was. How long will it be before Dominic realizes that I’m okay for fun but not the kind of girl you spend the rest of your life with?

‘That’s what I love about you. You don’t give a shit what people think’

Yeah and that’s part of the problem.”

This story just about killed me. I cringed every single time Dominic and Charlie had issues communicating or someone tried to come between them. The angst was ratcheted up to the hundredth degree. But it was so good. Dom, Dom, Dom was driving me crazy, crazy, crazy. I wanted so very much to kick him, kick him, kick him. That’s what makes these NA College romances so good. They pull on our heartstrings and keep us yelling at our kindle to get it together!

If you enjoy those stories about those college years, you won’t want to skip this one. I have read a few stories now by Jenny Siegel and I have to say that I’ve enjoyed them all. I’m adding her to my must read list. She knows how to get my heart beating a bit faster and needing to see what happens next!

I really liked this College NA book. Charlie feels like she was too slutty in high school so she reinvents herself when she leaves college as a “good girl”. She’s not going to drink anymore or wear tight, revealing clothing. She’s cut her long hair and wears only mascara and lip gloss. And NO boys. Dominic is the guitarist in a college band and he’s set his eyes on Charlotte/Charlie. Will she be able to resist the attentions of this player?

“’Be careful, Charlotte,’ she warns me. ‘You know what his reputation is like.’

I have to bite my lip to stop from smiling. Poor Iris would have a heart attack if she knew what my reputation back home was really like. I could give Dominic’s reputation a run for its money.

‘I’m not going to be another one of his one-night stands, if that’s what you’re worried about,’ I tell her with a straight face. ‘He’s fun to hang out with, that’s all.’

She gives me an odd look. ‘If you say so.’

Satisfied with my assurances, Iris leaves me to my studying. Which in reality consists of thinking wicked thoughts about a certain sexy guitar player that I have to resist.”

I adore College NA books and this is a really good one. I’m so excited that there’s another book after this one. This was a sweet love story about second chances and I am really rooting for these two. You can tell they have that chemistry and love connection that can last. There is a lot of angst which makes it a torture to read at times but that just adds some suspense. I can’t wait to read Almost Perfect and see what’s in store for these two and their friends.
