In this follow-up novel to the top-selling Ten Tiny?Breaths , Livie Cleary faces a new set of challenges as she navigates freshman year at Princeton, wild parties, and the gorgeous rowing team captain who is everything she doesn?t want in a guy, or so she thinks? ?Make me proud.? These were the last words Livie?s father ever spoke to her. In the seven years since her parents? tragic death, Livie has done her best to keep this promise through her every choice, word, and action, while looking after her sister with strength and maturity. But with college right around the corner, unexpected challenges will test her resilience?and her heart. Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she?s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet?a good,?respectable guy to marry someday. What isn?t part of her plan are Jell-O shots; a lovable, party animal roommate she can?t say ?no? to; and Ashton, the arrogant?and extremely attractive?captain of the men?s rowing team who makes Livie?s usually non-existent temper flare. Worse, he?s best friends and roommates with Connor, who fits Livie?s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton? As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn?t have, she?s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

Romance novel of college students with family issues. Drinking, cheating, lying, sex, deflowering, and love. Enjoyed it.

I quite liked the novel that preceded this one -- Ten Tiny Breaths. This one carries on the story of the younger sister Livie, as she goes to Princeton. I liked this novel less than the first one. I don't understand why the people in Livie's life encouraged her to get drunk, get wild... Perhaps she was a bit tightly strung, but these encouragements seemed to go too far. The thing most hard for me to believe, however, was that Livie could meet, fall in love and know that this one person is THE ONE for her, after only a few weeks and at her young age. So ... I'm less pleased with this novel, though it is still worth reading.
