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 na├»ve 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. 
I received this galley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Penguin and Netgalley.

After I read the first book in the series, True, I decided I wasn't going to read the second book, and I didn't, but when I read the synopsis for Believe, I decided to take another chance and read it. I am so glad that I did because I loved it! It was much better then I was expecting it to be.

Robin used to be the stereotypical college party girl. She liked going out and having fun. One night she ends up drunk and has sex with her best friends boyfriend. Waking up in bed with him, and disgusted with herself, she gives up her partying ways. Phoenix has just gotten out of jail and literally has nothing. Everything he had before prison was with his mom, and she left with no forwarding address while he was serving his time. I loved these two together. They started off as friends, and with duel point of view, we got to get inside of both their heads. I just wanted to cry for Phoenix, I felt so bad for him! I love that he is the opposite of what one might think a tattooed, just out of prison 20 year old would be!

I thought the ending was so sweet. They two of them definitely seem good together, and I really hope we get to see them in future books!
