Amber Scott should be enjoying life as a college freshman. She should be pursuing her dream of becoming a veterinarian. She should be working hard to make sense of her precalculus math class.
She shouldn’t be waking up her college roommate with screaming nightmares. She shouldn’t be flashing back, reliving the three weeks of hell she barely survived last year. And she definitely shouldn’t be spending time with sexy player Marcus Reid.
But engineering student Marcus is the only one keeping Amber from failing her math course, so she grudgingly lets him into her life. She never expects the king of hookups will share his painful past. Or that she’ll tell him her secrets in return, opening up and trusting him in a way she thought she’d never be able to again.
When their fragile future together is threatened by a stalker Amber thought was locked away for good, Marcus is determined to protect her. And Amber is determined to protect Marcus…even if that means pushing him away.
I must admit that I was thoroughly surprised by Tell Me When. I say that because when I see a book is centered around a college freshman I can typically guess how the story will play out, but whew I was not prepared for what Stina had written. The journey from beginning to end was one that had my emotions all over the place.
“Once again, I wonder what kind of mother would marry a monster like that, and do nothing to protect her sons.”
I know this story is primarily focused on Amber but Marcus stole the show for me. His story ripped my heart apart. Tell Me When is a story that covers some pretty heavy material so be prepared. I am definitely looking forward to what Stina’s next release!!
