In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in… sometimes you have to fight for what you love.

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about: his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

I cannot praise this book enough. Before I read All Lined Up, I thought the Losing It series was the best NA series in the world. And don’t get me wrong, it’s still my Top 2, but the Rusk University novels have taken the #1 spot. As you can see, Cora Carmack is still my favorite NA author.

I loved Carson and Dallas’ story, and while they’re not the focus of All Broke Down, they are still in the picture. I thought I would miss them too much to enjoy Silas and Dylan’ story, but I was wrong. And thank God for that. Dylan reminded me more of myself, so that may have to do with it. That, and Silas is just as delicious as Carson was—different, but just as sexy.

Okay. I’m done with the general fangirling. Now on to the awesome reasons why I’m obsessed. I’ll keep it short, so you can go read it instead of staying here longer than necessary:

  • It’s a great opposites attract story
  • The backstories are three-dimensional and sprinkled throughout the story without being overwhelming
  • Similarly, the characters aren’t perfect. They have issues, like most people do, but they deal with them
  • It’s a college love story (and I’m going to be a freshman next year, so I’m already hooked by the setting)
  • And… like I said before, the characters are people I would love to date/be friends with
