Unspoken (Woodlands #2) by Jen Frederick

Whore. Slut. Typhoid Mary.

I've been called all these at Central College. One drunken night, one act of irresponsible behavior, and my reputation was ruined. Guys labeled me as easy and girls shied away. To cope, I stayed away from Central social life and away from Central men, so why is it that my new biology lab partner is so irresistible to me?

He's everything I shouldn't want. A former Marine involved in illegal fighting with a quick trigger temper and an easy smile for all the women. His fists aren't the danger to me, though, it's his charm. He's sliding his way into my heart and I'm afraid that he's going to be the one to break me.

Impulsive. Unthinking. Hot tempered.

I allow instinct to rule my behavior. If it feels good, do it, has been my motto because if I spend too much time thinking, I'll begin to remember exactly where I came from. At Central College, I've got fighting and I've got women and I thought I was satisfied until I met her.

She's everything I didn't realize I wanted and the more time I spend with her, the more I want her. But she's been hurt too much in the past and I don't want to be the one to break her. I know I should walk away, but I just can't.

"Tampons slowing you down this morning?" I taunted the young businessman who'd volunteered to spar with me this morning.

AM is an outcast at Central College. The only reason she goes on campus is for classes. So when she's paired with Bo, the hunky Marine she's been crushing on for awhile, she doesn't know how she'll make it through the semester.

I liked this book because it wasn't insta-love. Bo and AM try to deny and ignore their attraction for awhile. I also love how AM blooms over the course of the story. She goes from this anti-social college girl to a confident young woman in love.

I adore books about soldiers. Especially ones like the Woodlands books. I can't wait to see what's in store for the other Woodlands boys. And  Grace's cousin. :)
