Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.
Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.
After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.
Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.
This New Adult Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature readers audiences only.

Here’s the deal, this entire series has become one of my all time favorites. These characters are so real, it’s like you know them, like they are everyday people/celbrities, like they exist. The twins are so freaking talented, I just can’t stop read these awesome books! This has been hands down my favorite of the Addicted/Calloway books. I love Rose, she’s so awesome and loyal to her family. And I absolutely love Connor, loved being inside his head. This book was awesome.


Favorite Quotes:


People thought she was nuts—in a genius “I will devour your soul” kind of way. I thought she was fucking fascinating.


Approaching Rose Calloway is like nearing a sleeping tiger. Every single time there’s a chance she’ll bite me.


People hope to touch the sky. I dream of kissing it.


“Je suis passionné de toi,” I say. I am passionate about you.


“We haven’t formally met,” I say, holding out my hand. “I’m Connor Cobalt. The guy whose girlfriend you want to fuck. And just so you understand, the odds don’t look good for you.”


“You’re right. I am me. And me wants eight screaming kids, who will bounce on our bed in the morning, who will beg you to braid their hair, who have your beautiful eyes and your brilliant mind. I want it all, Rose. And one day, our children will have it all too.”


He may not believe in fate, but I do. And I know I’m fated to be with him.


“You’re not a pit stop. You’re my finish line. There’s no one after you.”


Because one fucking day, I plan to marry that girl, and I want them to realize that I’m the best man for Rose. And that no one else can come even marginally close.


“Rose,” he says affectionately, “I would sit here for eighty more years and listen to you talk. I love the sound of your voice and every meaning behind your words.”


“How long do we have left?” I ask him softly, his body beginning to blur. He strokes my hair. “Pour toujours.” Forever.


“Kiss the sky with me,” Connor whispers, a beautiful smile pulling his lips, “and don’t ever come down.”
