Ritter University Novel – Book Two
Egged house, keyed cars, and lawsuits all behind her, Karina Wolfe needs to bury her past deep beneath the skeletons in her closet. No one can ever find out what she did. No one.
Her freshman year at Ritter University is the perfect opportunity to re-invent a better, shinier, more responsible Karina. Her goal? Keep her head down and stay away from the thing that screwed up her life in the first place—guys. It shouldn’t be that hard, in theory. If only Ryan Kent wasn’t so darn gorgeous.
Ryan Kent is the poster child for responsibility. He’s always done what’s expected of him. He didn’t have much choice. But now that his mother’s cancer is under control, he finally feels free. Almost. If he could only convince his dad to trust him to make his own choices, life would be good. If he could get Karina to take a chance on him, life would be perfect.
Ryan doesn’t know what Karina did before they met. Karina doesn’t know how to protect Ryan. When taking chances collide with trust, can what happens in college endure, or will it stay in college?
This Ritter University book is part of series of interconnected but stand-alone books.
They start out as people who just cannot get along. Ryan does not accept this and begs her to be a friend. She friend zones him and starts dating someone else. What she is most afraid is that anyone at school will find out about her past secrets, and that means not getting too close to him.
Ryan feels so childish begging for every scrap of attention, until they realize they have a class together and Karina needs a tutor. Then the spend more time together and the friendship grows. They get together with friends and gain a group that hangs out regularly.
Karina and Ryan really want to be together, despite all that is going on. They are still attracted, but cover it well with friendship and hanging out. When it all falls apart, will he be the one that can rescue her? Or will it implode and leave Karina alone?
I found this story extremely compelling. The characters gain so much when the friendship builds and becomes more. The banter is so clever and real. This was book 2 in the Ritter Univeristy series.
Living in Chicagoland with my husband, son and menagerie of dogs and cats, keeps me on my toes. When not writing or working or playing wife and mom, I love to scrapbook, watch movies and read anything I can find.
