Now a Wall Street Journal Best Seller
From New York Times best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new standalone romance....
A scarred fighter.
A girl with rules.
One night of unbridled passion.
There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: She's smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She's learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end. But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex. A tattooed British street fighter, he's the campus bad boy she's supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window. She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more. With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
A modern love story inspired by Pride and Prejudice.

Pleasantly surprised! Good story!
I went into this story with mixed reservations. I am an avid Pride and Prejudice fan. Comparing this book to my favorite all time literature is like comparing boxed wine to fine wine. Non-the-less this story is a good one. I would call it more Young Adult than contemporary. Declan and Elizabeth are characters that you can believe in. There are some "minor" characters in the background that also make the book interesting and at times amusing.
This story does address some very vile and real issues (including date rape), but does not detract from the overall story and only makes the heroine believable, admirable and strong as she struggles to put her life back together. The book shows this is a slow process.
The love story between Declan and Elizabeth is swoon worthy.
In the end, this book is credit worthy and most definitely sale worthy.
Narration: Summer Morton's performance is okay ... .not stellar but I found John Harleys female voice performance extremely lacking, which is why I knocked down the rating.

Everything I love in a Contemporary Romance Book!!
What a Yummy book! This book has love, strength, drama, violence and sex. The perfect mixture for me. I loved the characters! Elizabeth is a damaged girl with amazing strength but a misguided idea of how to deal with her past. Declan is an underground fighter with a great heart, a protective side and British accent! I love how they deal with their issued and find what they need. The love story is sweet, the sex is hot, the drama not extreme and the ending was perfect. I knew the minute they talked about Pride & Prejudice that I would love this book <3 I very much enjoyed the authors writing style and I know the book would have been great in print but I am so glad I waited for audio, I think the narrators were a perfect fit.
I would definitely recommended this book to Contemporary Romance Readers!
