Making decisions I regret is basically a hobby.So I guess it really wasn’t that surprising when I went out on a date with an Elite.And then he tried to assault me.I might be small, but I’m not meek. I fought him off… then went straight to the dean.He didn’t believe me. No one does.And now my date from hell is in revenge mode, and I somehow end up in the campus pool.Did I mention I can’t swim?Lucky for me, a knight in shining armor saves me from drowning.Except he’s not wearing shining armor. He’s naked.And he’s also Elite.Seriously, what is up with these Elite swimmers?Of course, I have no intention of ever seeing his very good-looking, naked highness again.Elite obviously can’t be trusted.Until he wraps me in his hoodie and promises to believe me.Now I’m drowning again—but this time in his enigmatic cobalt eyes and addictive touch.My only oxygen is him. I think I maybe could fall in love.But will he keep his promise when I tell him the truth about his teammate?Or will trusting Ryan with my heart and my life be just another decision to regret?
Welcome to Westbrook University! Its time to get Wet with the elite swim team! I love Cambria Heberts new adult/college romances. Seriously, #Nerd is one of my favorite series of all time. So, I was thrilled when she announced Wet!
Rory was assaulted and no one believed her. So, if that is a trigger for you, be aware. Of course, this guy won’t just leave her alone because she is determined to bring him down. Ryan and Rory have a super intense meeting but after that, Ryan is all in with Rory. I love that the drama doesn’t come from their relationship. There is little interrelationship angst. It’s Rory and Ryan against everyone else. Ryan is a great hero-honorable, kind, supportive-and Rory is the kind of heroine women can really root for. She is haunted by the idea of the next person the villain tries to attack not getting away like she did. Ryan and Rory have a very insta-love relationship, but I think its believable for their age. One thing teaching young adults has taught me is that they fall in love fast and hard.
There are some great side characters as well that really add to the story. I am very excited for the rest of this series because Wet was just fantastic!
