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?
Or does status mean nothing when it comes to true love?
My thoughts after reading...
I loved this book. I'm such a fan of Matthew and Leah's love story. I think its amazing how some people know "the one" by just a look... It's cute how smooth Matthew put his moves on Leah--waiting for her outside her dorm, walking her to her class and takes her hand...asks her for a favor to pick-up his friends... Subtle and sweet. Although Matthew has a sad past, I admired the fact that it didnt deter him to become the person he wants to be. He believed in himself and made his dream a reality... He was still a good boy despite all the temptations around... As for Leah.. I can relate to her... A bit naive and kinda just keeps to herself and lacks a bit of self-esteem... She's just your typical girl-next-door.... I loved the epilogue... I'm glad they have a happy ending though I would've wanted the epilogue to include their graduation, wedding, Matthew's draft... etc... I'm just a sucker for happy endings...(sigh)
