What do you do when you can’t save the one you love?

Sophie can’t survive without control. Growing up with an alcoholic father, she craves the discipline of gymnastics. Feeling lost on a brand new college campus, she lets loose for the first time in her life. But with freedom comes consequences. Is one night everything she hopes? Or will she become her own worst nightmare?

Kipton’s one year away from graduation. He’s never thought beyond a one night stand until meeting his sister’s new roommate. Finally setting his sights on the girl he can’t resist, he’s more determined than ever when she won’t give in to his persuasions. He’s always gotten the girl, and he’s not about to give up without a fight.

Will Sophie be able to salvage her dreams and wage a war against her own vices? Can she finally let love in? Or will history repeat itself causing her to self-destruct?

Lighter isn’t your typical college romance. Darkness suffocates, dreams are dashed, and battles are lost. Love takes on a whole new meaning.

Review by Kristin M 5 of 5 Stars!

Sophie is a 20 year old college student on a new campus, trying to escape a bad home life. She has finally made the gymnastics team at the college of her dreams. Everything should be wonderful…right? Sophie comes to college with more than the baggage containing her belongings. Sophie leaves behind an abusive home life and an abusive ex-boyfriend. While she is physically away, what mental baggage is she still carrying?

“You’re right Dad, you did teach me a lot. You taught me exactly who I don’t want to be.”

On move in day, Sophie meets her new roomie, Cara, and Cara’s brother, Kipton. The attraction is instant, but for Sophie, boys are NOT an option. Gymnastics is her life. Gymnastics is her escape. She can not stray from the controlled routine she has set for herself. Cara has other plans. One night of rebellion brings about a whole new world of troubles for Sophie.

“This can’t be happening. Tears prick my eyes. Coach Evans is going to kill me if I’m late to practice, let alone hung over.”

Kipton, unable to deny his attraction to Sophie, continues to be there for her and fight for her, even if she won’t fight for herself.

“I warned him I was too fucked up – too broken by my past. But he wouldn’t listen. Instead, he kept pushing for more even after I assured him I wasn’t capable of anything even close. He made me need him and now that I do, it’s too late.”

Watch as Sophie struggles to find herself and the ability to love and be loved by others.

This was my first Gia Riley book and she definitely left a lasting impression! This book has all of the feels in it!! I LOVED that it dealt with real life issues and dealt with them head on. I LOVED these characters and definitely can not wait for the next book in this series!!
