It’s good to be on top… Asher Knox has it all. Girls, wealth, a career most would kill for. He’s just landed the biggest job of his career. And he’s miserable.
She’s fighting her way from the bottom… Megan Beauchamp has no illusions about why she was chosen to be Asher’s PA. She’s pretty, and down to earth, and everything the Hollywood star always falls for. Too bad Megan is just paying her dues and has no interest in anything but advancing at her PR firm.
He’ll throw it all away…Luca James knows what he wants. And he’s waited a long time for the window to open—when it does, he’ll walk away from the career he’s built for a chance at something real.
When Megan’s boss threatens to fire her, Luca and Asher convince her to leave town with them. Between bad hotels and pit stop confessionals, the three are drawn closer together. And the lines blur even more in Branton, where Megan is forced to look at everything she left behind. But when the boys want more, Megan will be forced to choose between the men she loves and the life she thought she wanted. And in a town like Branton, the secrets she keeps won’t be hidden for long.

Jumping right in with this review!
do not read on if you don't enjoy spoilers. You were warned :)
This book follows, Meg, Asher, And Luca. Meg is Nik's sister. Nik is Atticus's (from book 1) Ex-wife. Meg is a former student at University of Branton, not actually a present student.
I liked Meg and Asher. They were different and I think Meg had a lot of self control
What I was NOT ok with is the relationship formed in this book.
"Warning: for mature audiences. Two sexy men + one sassy heroine = hot sex." Why did I not read this line before reading this book?????
I am a very open minded person. But when it comes to my fictional world, I like monogamous HEA and the man falling for the girl. It's just me my thing. I have nothing against relationships between 2 men and a woman. I've never read anything like it. Very different. But the ending ruined it for me and I found my self turning off my tablet saying SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!
Nazarea Andrews Strayed SOOOO far from her previous 2 University Of Branton series. I mean this one almost really wasn't a UB book. Meg was already graduated and the only reason UB is in the book is because she takes Asher there to Visit and talk with Atticus about a work related project featuring a pirate! I was expecting something very different than what we got in the book. I was expecting a love triangle. Maybe some rocky friendships. What I was NOT expecting and here comes the SPOILER!
I was NOT expecting a relationship between Luca + Asher + Meg. And as I said before I don't see anything wrong with that kind of relationship, but this was new to me. I wasn't expecting it and I went into this book thinking Meg and Asher were going to get together and In the end Luca would see he needed Sun. Obviously that is not what happened. This book was just a little more risque than I am used to.
This book is told in 3 different POV's Luca, Asher, And Meg. The author did the transitioning very nicely, again her writing was flawless as usual. Her character development was great Descriptive enough I could picture them in my head, but not overly descriptive. Everything aside this really is a good book. The story unfolding is great, the characters strong, and the setting original.
While this book may not be for me, I know Tons and Tons of people I will be recommending this book to.
