robinmy avatar reviewed on + 2005 more book reviews

Lianne Chalice is an actress who is taking time off from her career to attend Harkness College. She has only a few friends at the college. She stays in her room studying most of the time. But when a friend drags her out for pizza with the hockey team, Lianne meets Daniel "D.J." Trevi. She decides that this is the guy she needs to know better.

D.J. is the official disk jockey for the hockey team. He is interested in Lianne; but he also has issues that making starting a relationship with her a bad idea. D.J. is trying to keep his distance. Lianne senses that he is interested, but she doesn't know what is stopping him from getting to know her better.

This is the fifth book in The Ivy Years series. This could have been a great addition to the series, but it fell flat. A woman has accused D.J. of sexual assault. He is working with an attorney to fight the accusations, but the school isn't giving him the time of day. He knows that at any minute he will be booted out of the college, and doesn't want to start anything with Lianne until his name is cleared...if that ever happens. All the secrets drove me crazy. All he had to do was tell her what had happened. Instead, he brings up all kinds of reasons why he can't date her at this time. This situation got old very quickly.

I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Nick Podehl & Saskia Maarleveld. As always, they do an incredible job with the characters. My rating: 4 Stars.
