Read my Review: The Only Exception
NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+
Synopsis: **Due to sexual content and heavy subject matter, this book is recommended for ages 16+**
Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor's son, Trey Chapman.
No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.
A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.

What Actor would you cast to play in a movie about your life: I'm not really good at knowing which actor plays who, but Monica said she thinks Colton Haynes could possibly fill my Oxford shirts.
How would you spend your ideal Saturday night?
Sitting on the couch, watching the nightly news and eating leftover chinese with my girlfriend. Exciting? Probably not, but it doesn't cause problems and that's how I like it.
Favorite Movie: All The President's Men
Favorite Song: Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen
How many tattoos do you have?
None. Don't mistake that as me saying that I am against them, I just personally chose not to have them.
One thing no one else knows about you:
If I told you, then wouldn't it be known? That's the thing about being thrust in the spotlight, if you don't let the world know your baggage, they are going to find it anyway. It's better to be an open book then to have it exposed on the nightly news.
Quote: “When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat."- Ronald Reagan
And a little teaser to get to know Trey Chapman and his appearance
He kept his big grin on his face. "The one."
I should have recognized him right off the bat. He and his brothers were like a constant shadow during the governor’s campaign. All three Chapman boys stood behind him with their sandy brown hair and tight-lipped smiles while the future governor discussed his plans for a new Illinois. One that included a new contraception bill, his pride and joy, that changed the usual liberal, Chicago politics of Illinois and had women’s leagues up in arms. It didn't mean he stopped his precious bill and just said it was “what was best for his state.”
Of course I only got a brief glimpse of Trey Chapman when he was on TV, but I didn't remember him being this attractive. Or having so many freckles. I had to shake that thought out of my head. I couldn't let one guy with a dimpled smile phase me. He was the governor’s son for God’s sake.
