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

Before she agreed to tutor Tucker Price, college junior Scarlett was an introvert, struggling with her social anxiety 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 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 for 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?

    A good story, sweet story. I will read this author again.
  • Fun and smart romance

    By grooviemomma
    This is a fun and smart romance. I like how multi dimensional the characters are. In fact, Scarlett is the most relatable character I have read in a long time. Definitely an easy read and good escape when I needed it. I can’t wait to read the other two books in the series.
  • Loved it.

    I enjoyed this book.
  • Ugh

    By momomo17777
    This is not Denise’s best book. Depressing. Somewhat cliché.
  • Wow

    By TikaE25
    Very nice book, It felt like I was Scarlett, we related some how. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the start but when I got to the end it was well worth it. It was very romantic, as I am in love with love and as well in love with this book. Enjoy it people...
  • Please read this before getting the book.

    Don’t read this. The relationship these two have isn’t healthy and there are WAY too many sex scenes, swear words, and all around grossness. The theme is good. Redemption is always good, but this goes too far. It’s dark. Don’t read it unless you’re fully aware and equipped to handle it,
  • Loved it!

    I like the characters development and the characters were somewhat relatable. Although the chapter were a bit long but it wasn’t a big deal.
  • Not good

    By Kcdances
    I loved the characters at the beginning. The end was way too short, and the epilogue worse. I found myself dissatisfied with the end. Wish she had more character development through the pain of their ‘break up’.
  • Amazing book

    By sabooksreader
    So far I only read three books from three different series and I am in love with each one! I love the writing style this amazing author is using in this book and the other which I read. The story has a beautiful moral.Denise became my new favorite author.
