Lizzie Brandt was valedictorian of her high school class, but at Radleigh University, all she's acing are partying and hooking up with the wrong guys. But all that changes when her parents are killed in a tragic accident, making her guardian to her two younger brothers. To keep them out of foster care, she'll have to fix up her image, her life, and her GPA—fast. Too bad the only person on campus she can go to for help is her humorless, pedantic Byzantine History TA, Connor Lawson, who isn't exactly Lizzie's biggest fan.

But Connor surprises her. Not only is he a great tutor, but he’s also a pretty great babysitter. And chauffeur. And listener. And he understands exactly what it’s like to be on your own before you're ready. Before long, Lizzie realizes having a responsible-adult type around has its perks... and that she'd like to do some rather irresponsible (but considerably adult) things with him as well. Good thing he's not the kind of guy who'd ever reciprocate.

Until he does.

Until they turn into far more than teacher and student.

Until the relationship that helped put their lives back together threatens everything they both have left.

So while I was sitting around wondering how I’d write my review of Last Will and Testament, this song came on. It instantly caught my attention because it fit Lizzie and Connor. The lyrics are exactly what they felt for each other, the music is sexy like them, and the feel is warm and romantic at is core. So if you’re looking for the feel of this book, here you have it…

 

 

Song: “Fallingforyou” by The 1975

What time you coming down?
We started losing light.
I’ll never make it right
If you don’t want me around,
I’m so excited for the night,
All we need’s my bike and your enormous house
You said some day we might
When I’m closer to your height
‘Til then we’ll knock around, endlessly
You’re all I need

Don’t you see me now?
I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you,
Don’t you need me?
I, I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you,
And on this night and in this light,
I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you
Maybe you’ll change your mind
I think I’m falling, I think I’m falling

I’m caught on your coat again
You said, “Oh, no, it’s fine,”
I read between the lines
And touched your leg again, again
I’ll take you one day at a time,
Soon you will be mine,
Oh but I want you now (I want you now)
When the smoke is in your eyes,
You look so alive,
Do you fancy sitting down with me? Maybe?

You’re all I need
According to your heart,
My place is not deliberate,
Feeling of your arms
I don’t wanna be your friend,
I wanna kiss your neck

Don’t you see me?
I, I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you
Don’t you need me?
I, I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you
And on this night and in this light
I think I’m falling, I’m falling for you
Maybe you’ll change your mind
