"That girl isn't just trouble of the not-a-team-player, not-a-reliable-runner variety. She's trouble of the devious, manipulative, too-f***ing-hot-for-her-own good variety. She's the kind of girl who causes trouble merely by existing, and then makes sure to cause more.
And the last thing I need right now is more trouble."

A failing farm.
His father’s debt.
And a struggling college track team.
Will Langstrom has too many responsibilities, and the last thing he needs is Olivia Finnegan, a beautiful but troubled new transfer student.

A smart mouth.
A strong right hook.
And a secret that could destroy her.
Olivia is her own worst enemy, with a past she can’t seem to escape, and the last person she wants help from is a cocky track coach she can never seem to please.
Refusing to be pushed away, Will is determined to save her.
And determined to resist an attraction that could destroy them both.







Waking OliviaWaking Olivia by Elizabeth O'Roark

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

With Waking Olivia, Ms. O'Roark pushes the envelope to create an unforgettable story that is packed with surprises. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Olivia has so many self-destructive tendencies that I wondered about her sanity. She punishes herself for issues in her past. Will I think sees a broken soul he wants to rescue. His choices are questionable in a lot of ways but his heart is in the right place. Waking Olivia is a romance with an edgy spin but also has moments of heartbreak and intrigue. Hot and naughty. Not really my taste but it held my interest.
