Robin used to be a party girl… until she got black out drunk and woke up in bed with her best friend's boyfriend. Now she's faced with being THAT girl, and couldn't be more disgusted with herself. She can't even tell her friends the reason for her sudden sobriety and she avoids everyone until she meets Phoenix—quiet, tattooed, and different in every way that's good and oh, so bad…
Phoenix is two days out of jail when he meets Robin at his cousin's house, and he knows that he has no business talking to her, but he's drawn to her quiet demeanor, sweet smile, and artistic talent. She doesn't care that he's done time, or that he only has five bucks to his name, and she supports his goal to be a tattoo artist.
But Phoenix knows Robin has a secret, and that it's a naive dream to believe that his record won't catch up with them at some point. Though neither is prepared for the explosive result when the past collides with the present.
Phoenix and Robin were meant to be together, They are a perfect fix for each other.Their both lonely and in their own ways broken and just need someone they can be themselves and not have to worry about being judged by pass behavior.And boy were they ever hot together, the chemistry between them could burn up a room if not the entire house. There were a number of scenes that made me feel a little bit shy.
Erin McCarthy has done a very realistic job of creating characters that could be our own teens going off to college, away from home for the first time. It is fast paced with amazing characters and you feel so many emotions while reading it. I also like the fact that it sends a message that one mistake does not ruin your life. The author does an amazing job and you finish Believe with a sense of satisfaction. I would definitely recommend this book.
