Présentation de l'éditeur

USA TODAY Bestseller

Scarlett Goodwin’s world is divided into Before and After.

Before she agreed to tutor Tucker Price, college junior Scarlett was introvert, struggling with her social anxiety disorder and determined to not end up living in a trailer park like her mother and her younger sister. A mathematics major, she goes to her classes, to her job in the tutoring lab, and then hides in the apartment she shares with her friend, Caroline.

After junior Tucker Price, Southern University’s star soccer player enters the equation, her carefully plotted life is thrown off its axis. Tucker’s failing his required College Algebra class. With his eligibility is at risk, the university chancellor dangles an expensive piece of computer software for the math department if Scarlett agrees to privately tutor him. Tucker’s bad boy, womanizer reputation makes Scarlett wary of any contact, let alone spending several hours a week in close proximity.

But from her first encounter, she realizes Tucker isn’t the person everyone else sees. He carries a mountain of secrets which she suspects hold the reason to his self-destructive behavior. But the deeper she delves into the cause of his pain, the deeper she gets sucked into his chaos. Will Scarlett find the happiness she’s looking for, or will she be caught in Tucker’s aftermath?

REDESIGNED (Off the Subject #2) Caroline's story coming late May

Denise Grover Swank n’avait écrit pour le moment que des YA, mais sa première incursion dans le New Adult se révèle prometteuse !

Scarlett est une jeune fille de vingt ans qui a coupé tous liens avec son passé, et surtout avec sa famille. Elle a grandi dans un mobile-home, entre une mère alcoolique à la poursuite d'hommes aussi violents les uns que les autres, et une soeur qui a suivi très jeune les traces de sa mère. Elle souffre depuis son enfance de troubles d'anxiété, d’attaques de panique... Les mathématiques sont pour elle un moyen d'évacuer cette tension. Elle trouve du réconfort dans l’ordre qui y règne, les règles, les principes... C’est une excellente étudiante. Elle a juré de ne jamais terminer comme sa famille et de faire quelque chose de sa vie.

Tucker Price est la star de football de l'université, le mec populaire qui a toujours une foule qui le suit, et qui bénéficie surtout d'une bourse complète grâce à son talent. Mais il est en train d’échouer en cours et risque de perdre justement celle-ci. Car Tucker Price semble poursuivre un véritable chemin d’autodestruction entre les filles, l’alcool et son attitude. Après une brève rencontre avec Scarlett, il va se tourner vers la jeune femme et demander à ce que cela soit elle qui lui vienne en aide… elle et personne d'autre.

On est face à deux jeunes qui ont chacun une montagne de problèmes. Le livre nous est raconté entièrement du point de vue de Scarlett.

J'ai lu "After Math" quand on m'a dit que l'intrigue était assez similaire à celle de "Beautiful Disaster" que je venais de lire. J'ai passé un bon moment, mais je doute fortement de relire ce roman. À côté de "Beautiful Disaster", c'est du Canada Dry. Tout est mignon, gentil, attendu. Et lu et relu mille fois dans la collection Azur Harlequin, alors que "Beautiful Disaster" malgré ses gros sabots apparents réussit à casser les codes du genre. Bon point par contre, le roman est assez court (300 pages).

Certes comme dans "Beautiful Disaster" le héros est une star de l'université sautant sur tout ce qui porte jupons et faisant la fête non stop. Certes comme dans "Beautiful Disaster" l'héroïne a une apparence bien comme il faut et pondérée. Il y a aussi un deuxième prétendant qui a priori a tout pour lui (sécurité financière, stabilité émotionnelle, plan de carrière). Ainsi que quelques meilleures amies en arrière plan. Et nous avons une histoire d'amour se construit via une amitié. Mais les apparences s'arrêtent là.

Ici l'héroïne est vraiment comme il faut, elle ne bois pas et fait des crises d'angoisse à l'idée d'être dans une pièce avec plusieurs personnes inconnues. Le deuxième prétendant lui n'est pas aussi charmant qu'il le laissait penser. Et le héros est un petit garçon blessé qui n'ose pas dire qu'il ne veut pas être joueur de football professionnel, juste prof de foot. L'héroïne et le héros vont se dire je t'aime à la moitié du roman et finir par vivre ensemble. Tout est bien qui finit bien.

C'est mignon, pour les jeunes adultes surtout! Mais ça se lit assez bien. A découvrir, l'anglais est simple, et cette auteur est fabuleuse.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unexpectedly really, really good. 17 mars 2013
Par eBook Addict - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Firstly, let me say there is nothing new in this story - it's all about the good girl falling for the bad boy in a university setting and, of course, they are both damaged.

So, what did stand out?

- It was very well written. The author displayed a great talent for building a credible story slowly but steadily to a satisfying conclusion. (Note that the intimate scenes are limited to the second half of the book and aren't exactly going to steam up your e-reader.)
- The heroine was a maths major. Yay! Finally an intelligent girl who isn't studying some form of art, design or history...
- The heroine wasn't 'drop-dead-gorgeous but completely unaware of it' (as so many of them are crafted); instead, she's just a fairly average girl who wins the hero's affection in other ways.
- The writer was technically proficient (spelling, grammar etc) - always a major bonus in the e-book arena.

Look forward to reading future works from this author.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Didn't expect to like it so much 19 mars 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book has a very depressing tone, despite being a feelgood read. I know that makes no sense, but just bear with me.
I guess I could say that I didn't expect to like it as much as I did after some reviews I read, but it wasn't ah-mayzing, either.

Being in Scarlett's head was sometimes exhausting. It's not just the fact that she was so closed off, but she would often turn into a real drama queen and it was annoying as hell. It was really okay during the first half of the book, but during the second it was almost unbearable how much she made a big deal out of everything.
On the other hand, she's a genuinely good person, and I liked that she really cared about Tucker rather than being swayed by his good looks and football superstar status. She actually didn't care about that, at all. She's also not the virginal, naive heroine, as much as she seems so at first. Oh and, she has no self-image issues, she knows she's good looking, she just doesn't like the attention.

Tucker, on the other hand, was an enigma from start to finish. This will probably sound weird because, sure, you get to know him some, and I actually really, really liked him, but overall, he was a mystery and he remained a mystery to me. I understood his struggles, but I didn't connect with him all that much. Sometimes I wished it was dual POV just so I could get inside his head.

I said it in my status updates, and I'll say it again: These two were one huge mess of insecurities. But nevertheless, you can see that they were made for each other, and I had some seriously aweeeee moments reading it. They were just so sweet together. There's no insta-love, their relationship progresses naturally, they're so real and honest with each other, and you know - I liked that they somehow made each other complete.

It's written in first person present, and it just didn't sit right with me. But that's okay, overall I did like the writing style.
Thankfully, the author didn't succumb to the-big-misunderstanding, although it was an easy trap, what with Tucker's character being a such a mess.
Supporting characters were good and I liked them. I didn't like the love-triangle attempt, because in the end it turned out to be pointless.

The ending was very rushed, and that's ultimately why I decided to keep my rating at 3.5. It's like, you get to see very little of the two of them together, then poof, he's gone. And then poof...you know? Rushed.

There are a couple of mildly graphic sex scenes, just a heads up. For some reason, I was hoping it was clean.

Like I said, this book was a nice surprise, I didn't expect to like it so much. It's about two people being exactly what the other needs to get over their demons and be complete. I definitely recommend it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Repetitive 18 mai 2013
Par Theresa Brandt - Publié sur Amazon.com

Have you ever ridden a roller coaster and experienced that clack-clack-clack sound of the cars as they climb the track? It is supposed to build tension in anticipation of the thrilling drop on the other side of the crest. That's kind of like what this novel was like, only without the thrilling drop.

The clack-clack-clack comes in the repetitive, self-indulgent introspection of the main character, Scarlett over her miserable childhood and resultant "brokenness." At the 56% mark on my e-reader she is still bemoaning her panicky social awkwardness, her inability to form 'normal' relationships, and her generally poor self-esteem. She is joined in her misery by Tucker, who --surprise, surprise--also had a miserable childhood. However improbably, Scarlett sees something in him beyond his 'bad boy' persona that makes her feel 'safe.' This is a classic case of misery loves company.

Scarlett and Tucker are joined by the usual coterie of supportive friends, annoying friends and the occasional drive-by threatening acquaintance, none of which are developed enough to care much about.

Ninety percent of the novel is navel gazing combined with the on again, off again push-pull between Scarlett and Tucker. When you finally crest the bill on this roller coaster, there is no thrilling drop leading to fast dips and turns to the end. It is just a shallow dip that quickly reaches a predictable ending.

Nothing new here, except maybe extra gloomy and depressing. This story has been told a million times: shy girl meets hot man whore, she miraculously "changes" him.
BORING. I don't mind reading about people who've had hard lives, but the two main characters in this were extra annoying and over dramatic. "I'm so broken." "I'm so lonely." Shut the **** up already! Quit being so whiny and stuck in the past, and move the **** on! They're in college, both going places, what are they still so mopey about? Ugh. There is no humor or anything remotely interesting in this book. There are pages of the guy teaching the girl to run and train. Who the hell wants to read about that? SPOILER: Then the girl convinces the guy to "follow his heart" and become a gym teacher instead of a pro soccer player. WTF? Who the hell would choose that? I don't care how much he supposedly hated soccer, that is completely stupid and unrealistic. I am definitely not reading anything by this author again.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 slow read 6 mai 2013
Par Ren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Even for .99 this book was not worth the effort. dark undertone and sad this slow pace book was anything but feel good. The characters were dark and more apart then together. The ending was rushed and there was not enough to make the story fly. The story took a long time to build and did not pick up any steam. Unfortunately, by the time the characters got together I no longer cared. There are a lot of books with a similar premise of good girl with bad past helping a bad boy in a university setting. This book did not offer anything different and the characters did not convince that they could be happy with anyone, much less each other.
