Ritter University Novel – Book Two

Egged house, keyed cars, and lawsuits all behind her, Karina Wolfe needs to bury her past deep beneath the skeletons in her closet. No one can ever find out what she did. No one.
Her freshman year at Ritter University is the perfect opportunity to re-invent a better, shinier, more responsible Karina. Her goal? Keep her head down and stay away from the thing that screwed up her life in the first place—guys. It shouldn’t be that hard, in theory. If only Ryan Kent wasn’t so darn gorgeous.

Ryan Kent is the poster child for responsibility. He’s always done what’s expected of him. He didn’t have much choice. But now that his mother’s cancer is under control, he finally feels free. Almost. If he could only convince his dad to trust him to make his own choices, life would be good. If he could get Karina to take a chance on him, life would be perfect.

Ryan doesn’t know what Karina did before they met. Karina doesn’t know how to protect Ryan. When taking chances collide with trust, can what happens in college endure, or will it stay in college?

*Reader Note*
This Ritter University book is part of series of interconnected but stand-alone books.



“Whoa,” a seductive deep voice rumbled in her ear. He eased her forward until she was standing upright “Are you okay?”
“I think so.” Karina tested her knees and figured she could manage not to fall in a heap. Damn deck. She lifted her head to thank her savior, and air wedged in her throat.
Wow. Her gaze locked on his hazel eyes and full lips. Both looked right at home next to chiseled cheekbones and a strong jaw. His brown hair was cut short on the sides, gradually getting longer near the top of his head. The only flaw she could see was a rounded nose—and even that gave him a unique attractiveness. A guy-next-door Adam Levine.
Did she mention she loved Adam Levine? Too bad she’d given up on dating and guys and anything associated with either, because this one would be just her type.
Danger. Warning.
Her type of guy tended to be hot. Stupid hot. The kind of hot that conned unsuspecting women into doing stupid things. Thank goodness she wasn’t unsuspecting—anymore.
“Are you sure?” He ran a hand through his already disheveled hair.
What? She thought back—what was the last thing she said? No clue. “Am I sure about what?”
“That you’re okay. You look a bit confused.”
“Confused?” She might be a bit confused. On account of the hotness? No—because she almost got impaled. That was it.
“How many fingers?” He held three fingers up next to his head.
“And now?” He lifted one finger.
“What’s your name?”
“Karina.” Yep. She was sure that was her name.
“Wait, how do you know if I’m right?”
“I don’t. I just wanted to know your name.” He slid a finger along her cheek, pushing a stray piece of hair behind her ear. “The confusion seems to be gone.”
“Sorry. I’m fine now. What were you doing out here?” She turned away as heat crawled up her neck. Confused? Maybe a little. But her brain was not pinging from his touch along her face. Not even a little. She was confused after her brush with death. Yep, death by impaling. Yep, that was it.
“Um, I needed some air.” He stuffed his hands into the front pockets of his blue jeans. He looked so good in those jeans. Narrow hips. Broad Shoulders. Did she mention the Adam Levine thing?
Okay, so she might have given up on men, but she wasn’t blind.
“What were you doing out here?” He pointed through the door toward the throng of dancers. “The party’s that way.”
“Needed some air.” She stole his answer. It was the truth, after all. She looked into his eyes. Kind eyes. Sweet eyes. Eyes that held her in place. Eyes that held… Red and blue lights flickered against the hazel. She turned around.
No way. It couldn’t be happening. Not again. An all-night rave twerked through her stomach. This was supposed to be her chance to put the past behind her. Move on. A visit from Cedar Glen’s Finest was not in her plans.
They’d find out. Everyone would find out. Everyone always seemed to find out what she’d done.
More lights swirled through the back yard as terror gripped her by the throat.
Karina sucked in a deep breath. “The cops.”
