Parties, sororities and getting drunk.
Oh, yeah. And learning.
This may be true for most college students, but not for Leah Bennett. College life for her includes studying, working, and excelling in school. When it comes to the social ladder, Leah is at the bottom. Popular girls, hot guys and star athletes are of no importance to her, except for one.
Matt is the starting wide receiver at SUNY Cortland, the most wanted guy on campus and Leah’s best friend. Although Leah’s feelings toward Matt run deeper than just a friendship, it is something she would never let be seen because the odds of someone like Matthew Jacobs going for someone like Leah Bennett are slim to none.
When Matt starts showing an interest in Leah that goes beyond friendship, she is dumbfounded and doesn’t believe it is possible – until one weekend that changes everything.
Will Matt and Leah’s popularity status get in the way of having a chance at a real relationship?
Leah’s your typical geek, never has time to socialise because she knows she just doesn’t fit in so her dedication to her studies is all she has. That and her online chats with one very fine, Matthew Jacobs, who seems to be the only person she really talks to. I found their relationship to be very sweet and incredibly cute, I found myself smiling on more than one occasion. Now this breaks the norm as it’s not like Leah has a dark past, or secrets or whatever you’re thinking she’s juts quite simply Leah. It was a very uncomplicated romance, in the sense there’s not a lot of drama and is pretty straightforward. Which works for me ‘cause I’m not a fan of unnecessary descriptions and such. I also found their flirting pretty amusing and it just added to their little cute factor for me.
“I’m not sure how far he’s willing to go, but I’ll go as far as he’s willing to take me.”
“You’ve got skills, huh?” Matt says with a flirtatious smile. “Ones I don’t think you’d be able to handle,” I whisper to him, feeling brave and standing on my tippy toes to make us eye level.
“You don’t have to do a damn thing,” he says with sincerity in his eyes. “I’ve been fallin’ since day one.”
