SUBJECT TO CHANGE Synopsis:
Joey made her dad a deathbed promise that she would become a doctor, and dedicate herself to fighting the very cancer that took his life. There’s just one problem -three years into her pre-med classes, she’s struggling to stay on top of the curve, let alone prove she’s dazzling enough to earn a spot in an Ivy League medical school. In a Hail Mary move, she throws a basic Business 101 class into her semester schedule, banking on a perfect score to boost her GPA.
That is, until she’s paired for a final project with Hawk, the bartending, motorbike-riding, gorgeously bedheaded loser who falls asleep in class and communicates in one-word sentences.
Hawk does whatever he wants, whenever he wants, which sets Joey on edge – in every possible way. As they get to know each other, her urge to scream at him is curbed only by her fantasies of tearing his clothes off. Soon those fantasies become reality, and Joey realizes Hawk makes her feel more fully herself than any of the rich boys her mother and sorority sisters approve of.
But the promise to her father hangs over her head, and the harder Joey tries to succeed in her chosen career, the faster everything falls into a hopeless tailspin of bad grades, broken promises and guilt. It doesn’t help to have Hawk sitting like a devil on her shoulder, insisting she should be free to live however she wants to live – like he does.
The only thing Joey knows is that her neatly organized life is crushing her – and Hawk’s bad attitude might be the only thing that can save her.
Miss Riki’s Review:
I was an instant fan of Alessandra Thomas’ writing after reading her debut novel Picture Perfect, but after reading her latest work, Subject to Change, I am a fan for life. In this wonderful story we meet Joey, a college student hell-bent on surviving pre-med in order to fulfill a promise to her father who passed away from cancer. She is struggling and in desperate need of a change in direction when she lands the absolutely hunky Hawk as a partner in a general business class. Sparks fly and the story takes off from there.
Joey is a wonderfully developed character with dreams and aspirations that any woman can relate to. She’s highly likable and I cheered for her throughout this book. As for Hawk- Oh. My. Goodness. Hot, hot, hot. Every girl loves a bad boy and this dark, handsome, tattooed, motorcycle-riding heartthrob is to die for. It’s impossible not to fall for him, even when the drama starts.
What I loved most about this book is that not only is it a kick-ass love story with some very wonderfully steamy scenes, but it’s a beautiful story about doing what’s true in a girl’s heart. Watching Joey’s transformation from uptight pre-med student to a woman who is confident and believes in herself has in itself reminded me that we have to do what’s right for us, no matter who we might think it disappoints.
