Title: Blind Spot
I'm used to going for the easy things in life.
The easy A in school.
The easy lay in bed. The easy life my trust fund affords me.
Until I met Shelby.
Never in my life have I found retro T-shirts and lip balm so damn sexy.
She's exactly what I never knew I wanted.
And she's anything but easy.
But suddenly, easy is overrated.
Only one damn problem... For Shelby, hating me is easy.
For the first time in my life, I have to work for something. And though
she may not be easy...she'll be worth it.

Tate has never been known to take the challenge. Why would he need to? He’s got the money, looks, and connections any senior college student would want. Then how is it so hard for him to resist Shelby, his new neighbor, who’s whole demeanor screams off-limits? Shelby is tired of the “entitled” students at her college. She only has a few more classes to complete before she starts her career and she does not need the distraction that is Tate.
If you read the blurb, it is something that can totally grab you because it seems to hit on the major points of any college student. Which can give some connection to the story but that is where it ended. I liked that there was more depth in themselves but they do not touch on their past stories until almost 75% through the novel.
Shelby has a traumatic past that she touches on here and there when talking to Tate. He knows there is more to her than meets the eye and wants nothing more than to peel off the layers. However, instead of confronting problems she runs away. For everything. She’s too attracted to Tate, runs away. She’s jealous of his girl-friends, she runs. He screws up, although majorly, and needs time apart; she runs. And when things got heated between them, it feels kind of dull. In a New Adult book, there is not much sex but in this one there are many scenes but no chemistry between two adults who “love’ each other.
Despite these points, I think the journey they are on together is one worth reading. They both grow into amazing people who give back to the community and those in need. I may not have been able to connect to it but others probably could.
I was gifted a copy of this novel from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
