This week my book boyfriend is Trent Lawson from Contradictions by Tiffany King.  He's not the typical kind of guy I go for, but I couldn't help but fall in love with this nerdy hottie.  

Title:  Contradictions 
Author: Tiffany Kin
  • Series: A Woodfalls Girls Novel
  • Paperback: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Berkley Trade (January 6, 2015)

When everything starts spinning out of control . . .

Three years into college, Tressa Oliver’s life is a nonstop party. She’s skating by in her classes, and there’s no shortage of drinking, dancing, and general hell-raising. The only aspect that hasn’t been much fun: She can’t shake the toxic jerks that always seem to gravitate toward her.

It will take someone totally wrong . . .

Trent Lawson is the classic anti-bad boy: smart, boring, and way too serious. To a wild girl like Tressa, there’s no way in hell they’re compatible—especially since Trent seems to see straight through her defenses.

To set her right.

When a college prank goes terribly wrong, Tressa starts to suspect that her partying ways are leading nowhere fast. Now she has to turn to the last person she ever thought she’d ask for help—and quickly discovers that there’s more to Trent than meets the eye . . .

My Thoughts:  Contradictions is the third book in the Woodsfalls Girls series and is Tressa's story.  As a companion novel, it can easily be read as a standalone, but for those who've read the other books in the series, you will appreciate the appearance of previous characters in this novel as well.  I really liked Tressa. Coming from a small town with a reputation of being a "wild child," she has definitely been living up to her party girl reputation at college, that is until it begins to catch up with her.  Tragedy, failing grades, and the appearance of someone she can't seem to get off her mind throw Tressa's world into a tailspin.  Trent has had a crush on Tressa for years, and when the opportunity to help her out arises, he doesn't hesitate rising to the occasion.  Tressa soon finds out that there is a lot more to Trent than she bargained for, and what she thought was her total opposite, ignites a fire in her that just won't go out.  

I loved both Trdessa and Trent, and the way that Tiffany Kind developed both their characters and their romance.  Trent is not usually my type of book boyfriend, but I totally fell in love with him and his "Clark Kent to Superman transformation" portrayed through Tressa's eyes.  The secondary characters in the novel were great also, and I definitely enjoyed getting a glimpse of the characters from the previous novels as well. Contradictions is funny, witty, romantic, hot, and a very enjoyable contemporary romance that loves of this genre will enjoy.  Check it out.

I knocked on his door, thankful I’d had the foresight to grab my gloves before heading out. I was preparing to knock again after he didn’t answer when the door suddenly swung open.
My mild shock turned into downright “slap my ass and call me Dixie” surprise when I saw how he was dressed, or rather, undressed would be the more accurate description. He answered the door in nothing more than a towel, rendering me speechless.
My mouth dropped open as I took in the very male sight before me. My suspicions about what lay beneath the endless array of geeky shirts he was so fond of wearing had now been verified. Although, even in my wildest of dreams, I’m pretty sure I didn’t imagine this. Not that I had wild dreams about him. At least, not all the time.
With the towel knotted around his waist, I had an up-close and personal view of his very defined, and I loathed to admit, very lickable abs. I wasn’t even sure “six-pack” was the right word. Running my eyes down his naked torso, I’m pretty sure I counted an eight-pack. Eight delicious abs that glistened with droplets of water from the shower he had just stepped out of. My mouth began to water at the sight of him, and I’m pretty sure I even swayed a little. I wanted to reach out to feel if his muscles were as firm as they looked. God, the things I could do that chest, I thought.
“Hey, you’re early,” he greeted me, using an extra towel to dry his hair. His words were like a torrent of cold water splashed on my face. I took an unsteady step backward. If he only knew how close I had come to reaching out and touching him. How could nerdy tee shirts and glasses hide that much hotness? That was the question. Hell, even his hair looked hot now that it was tousled from the towel dry he’d given it.
I croaked out an answer that was a garbled mess. He looked at me like I’d just fallen off the drunken train. Trying again, I cleared my throat, hoping for something that sounded more coherent. “Too jeep cold,” I mumbled, realizing as I was talking that I had effed it up again.
His look turned to puzzlement as he tried to make sense of my rhyme. “Oh, sorry,” he finally said, stepping back so I could enter his warm apartment. “It’s cold outside,” he added, closing the door quickly behind me. I didn’t bother to correct him. Better for him to think it was the cold that had my tongue refusing to cooperate than the real reason. Trent didn’t need any more encouragement.
