When Jade is given a scholarship to an elite private college in Connecticut, she sees it as a chance to finally escape her painful past and get a fresh start. She’s determined to succeed and that means keeping her focus on school and not guys. But her plan falls apart her first day on campus when Garret, a rich prep school boy with swimmer abs and a perfect smile, offers to help her move in.

Jade tries to push him away, but she can’t deny her attraction to him and Garret won’t let her. Things quickly heat up between them, but then come to a sudden halt when reality hits and Jade realizes that a relationship with Garret may never be possible. He comes from a world of wealth where there are rules, including rules about who he can date. And not following those rules has consequences.

As the two of them try to overcome the obstacles working to keep them apart, Jade is confronted with another challenge. On her 19th birthday, she receives a letter that her now deceased mother wrote years ago. In it are revelations that explain her traumatic childhood but also make her question the past she’s been running from.

Blog Tour Review: Jo Rushton

"Choosing You" was my first Allie Everhart read and I know it will not be my last. I completely fell in love with the story of Jade and Garret. 

I immediately liked Jade (the female lead in the story). She was a girl who had had a heartbreaking start in life but despite this, had shown a real strength and determination by becoming her high school's valedictorian and gaining a place at a prestigious college. From the moment she set foot on college grounds, her life was changed, even more so since she met Garret on her first day!

Garret was a fellow student who just so happened to be extremely attractive. A friendship was quickly formed between the couple but it wasn't long before that developed into something more. 

"Jade...Just in case I haven't made myself clear, I like you. I like you a lot." 
"I like you too." 

Jade and Garret were sweet together. I loved watching their relationship develop, it made my heart melt how Garret was so considerate of Jade's feelings. Unfortunately Jade was plagued by fears and insecurities that developed from her past and Garret appeared to truly understand, treating her with so much love and patience. He was everything that Jade needed him to be. 

Life was good for Jade and Garret and it was lovely to see how happy they were together. Garret was so romantic and did so many special things for Jade. 

Unfortunately though, It wasn't just Jade that had problems, Garret also had his own fair share of trouble brewing. This couple were facing a bucket load of drama but together they refused to let this get in their way. They worked together to overcome these obstacles and for a short time it was working. Unfortunately things were about to take a turn for the worse and their problems were about to get a whole lot bigger!!

"Just when everything was going so well, life smacks me in the face knocking 
me back down. Reminding me that I can't be happy. For some reason, 
I'm not allowed to be. My past continues to haunt me. And this time, I can't run from it. " 

The story ended in a frightening cliffhanger leaving me wandering what was going to happen next for Jade and Garret. OMG!! This is another one of those books that leave you needing the next book fast! I give "Choosing You" 4 sweet hearts.

Series description:

The Jade Series is a New Adult Romance that follows the relationship of Jade and Garret in their first year of college. In Choosing You, (book 1), Jade and Garret meet on Jade’s first night at Moorhurst College and despite their strong attraction to each other, they’re not allowed to date because of the strict rules that control Garret’s life. In Knowing You, (book 2), Garret breaks the family rules and begins dating Jade. Their relationship grows deeper but issues from Jade’s past complicate matters. Loving You (book 3) shows Jade and Garret growing closer as a couple but also hints at the trouble that lies ahead in Promising You (book 4), in which a new challenge emerges for Garret that could interfere with the future he wants with Jade. Originally, book 4 was the end of the series, but fans wanted to read more about Jade and Garret, so Allie is now in the process of writing Forever You, an all-new, full-length follow-up book to The Jade Series releasing later this spring!
