Some of Crystals friends were waiting inside for her. Some f Crystals friends had started drinking before they were 21 but not Crystal ans she was twenty one today. She had wanted to respect her mom. Crystal’s mom was more of a friend all of Crystal’s life. Crystal’s mom was her pillar of strength and go to person for anything and everything. Crystal kept no secrets from her. Than at the door Crystal can’t find her ID and the bouncer told her it was time she went back home but than a man with a distinctive voice and pleasant accent said he thought she had dropped this and it was her ID.

Than Crystal mistakenly goes to the mens room- she was a bit tipsy- and too drunk guys try to get her in the bathroom with them and pushed her against the door and blocked her way and the man who had found her ID and preventing her fall came out of the bathroom

Than Crystal told him her name. Every part of Crystal was drawn to Aidan. He then kissed her thoroughly . Than she goes back to her friends and Aidan to his after she had offered to buy him a drink for helping her a couple of times. Crystal figures she will never see him again. But one day on campus a man bumped into her making her drop her phone and the screen cracked- her mother had got her this expensive phone for her birthday and she became furious and pushed him and he went down when he got back up he grabbed Crystal by the throat and was choking her. She hears a voice speak in another language and the man -Vadin lets her go . It turns out Vadin was Aidan’s cousin and he is the one who again helped her and he gave her his phone number and told Crystal he would pay for a new phone. Crystal calls him he is busy but calls her back that night and than the next day he takes her out to dinner. And after they eat they walk around than Aidan passionately kisses her again than abruptly stops and says they have to stop there. Crystal and all his friends are having their usual Thursday night movie and Ethan has a friend with him and it’s Aidan. Jen makes sure Crystal sets next to Aidan and Aidan takes her hand when she is scared and doesn't let go. He seems happy to see her. He texts her that night and wants to see her again. Ethan acts jealous about Aidan. They meet up the next day at the Crown and Anchor Pub. Aidan talks about when he was younger and that he had a bad temper. Than Aidan takes her to his condo and they have sex and Crystal spends the night with him. A couple days later Crystal says she knows it is to soon but she loves him and Aidan ends things between them.

I loved this book right until the last chapter. I feel it was a cliff hanger to a degree and it makes no sense to me that she would never hear from Aidan as he never lied to her and he said he would be back but then again he didn’t call her when he landed but still it just ruined the book for me and I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. I do think Crystal was very immature grounded by her mother at 21 afraid to stay overnight with her boyfriend that is young teenager her stuff. Her mother needs to back off and let her mature. How is she going to handle an internship in NYC with her degree of immaturity?  This was a five all the way to the end. But than I am a romantic at heart and read romances for the HEA. I did love Crystal’s friends but they also needed to force her to grow up and make her own decisions and act like a adult and not a young teen. I rated this a three I loved the characters and the ins and outs but I now have mixed feelings about this book.
