In My Mailbox - # 12

In My Mailbox is a weekly post hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren where bloggers can discuss the books we got in the mail this week.

I managed to keep myself to one book this week. The books I have on my TBR list that are actually in my possession are stacking up, so I tried to limit myself this week.

Almost

Goodreads description--At a freshman party she doesn't remember, Jess Jordan was almost raped.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite. Three years later, Jess has managed to make everyone believe she's better. Over it. Because she is.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.

Unfortunately, until Jess proves she's back to normal activities, her parents won't discuss college. So, she lands a summer internship and strikes a deal with hockey jock, Gray Porter: He gets $8,000. She gets a fake boyfriend and a social life.

Jess has no idea Gray signed on for reasons other than money. She also never expects to fall in love. But Gray’s amazingly hot, holds her hand all the time, and makes her forget that he’s simply doing his job. It’s like having a real boyfriend.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.

Gray Porter is hiding secrets of his own. About Jess Jordan. About why he’s driven to protect her, why he won't cash her checks, or deny her anything she asks.

What did you guys get in your mailbox this week? Let me know.

  3. Ooh...this sounds really good! I haven't heard of it before, but I plan to get my hands on it. You should definitely check out the Halo series, Sandy, especially the first book in the series. A lot of people thought it had too much description, but since I love coastal scenery, I was totally into it--and who can resist a sweet, and totally hot guy?! I think people made too much of it because it had religious overtones, but it was a romance at it's heart.

    1. Maybe I'll have to bump Halo up on my TBR list. I don't mind religious overtones, but I do love a good romance. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
