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.
5 of 5 Subject To Change
My God HOLY HAWK! I have to say that I loved Picture Perfect but DAM if Alessandra did not get me with Subject to Change. First before I go into the review on the book I have to give praise where praise is due. I have read a lot of NA books and NOTHING I mean Nothing comes close to Alessandra's writing. The world and places and characters she has created sets the bar high for some of the authors out here that are indie. I mean she grabs you right from the very first page and she keeps you there until the end. I love that in a book because it means the author took the time to formulate a story and brought it home for the readers.
In Subject to Change we meet Joey who is in college studying to be a doctor. She promised her father on his dying bed that she would become a doctor and find a cure to beat the cancer he died from. The only thing is is that studying to be a doctor is the hardest thing Joey has ever done and she is not very good at it. She is failing and she needs to boost her GPA so she decides she will take a business class that will help her. When she gets to the business class she is excited until she is paired up with William Hawkins AKA Hawk.
Hawk looks like your average bad boy. He has an attitude a mile long and rides a motorcycle and he bar tends. Lord her radar is screaming LOSER run away as fast as you can but looks can be deceiving because the more time Joey spends with him the more she gets to know the real Hawk who is just trying to survive and keep his sister safe. Joey and Hawk slowly fall into each other they both realize that they care for one another. But Joey's family is not happy with her choice and she will have to decide whether or not change is going to be good for her or not? What will Joey choose? Will Hawk be able to teach Joey that change is good? This is another must read by Alessandra Thomas!
