**Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 16+**

Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor's son, Trey Chapman.

No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.

A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good. (thanks to GoodReads for the summary)

My Thoughts -
This story was pretty good. I thought a liberal, kick-ass, female lead was awesome - until she tried to hide who she was from from the guy's parents. Monica had something horrible happen to her, but she never really told anybody about it or got over it. I thought her views on family planning were good. Trey was a typical Alex P Keaton. When shown the other side of the issues, as they related to Monica, he grew and saw what he father was shoving down his brain wasn't always the best answer.

I liked this story, I liked Mon and Trey's chemistry and I liked the general plot line of the story. It was a quick, fluid read and did not disappoint.
