I’ve only loved one man in my life.

Gavin O’Leary.

He destroyed me.

Not because he loved me.

Not because he hated me.

But because he had no idea who I was.

He was the popular guy with the chiseled abs, dark tan and perfect hair.

The type that only dated the perfect-ten, cheerleader. 

I was the nerd who hated high school and couldn’t wait to say goodbye.​

The last thing I expected was to see him again twelve years later.​

Only this time—he notices me.

This time—he kisses me.

This time saying goodbye to Gavin O’Leary might destroy me. 


  • So easy!

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The author made the girl sound like she had a vendetta against this jock. However, she opened her legs at the first chance! The irony! The book was short, easy and boring.

    Loved this book. Made me smile throughout and I really enjoyed the characters. It was a shorter book but the story developed well and made for a realistic read. This was my first by this author and I will be reading many more from her. Excellent book!!!

    This was a good novella. Even though it was short it packed quite a punch. I love this author and her books. This was just another wonderful addition to her work so far. This was a very sweet novella and I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
  • The Hot Jock Gets the Girl!

    By Book Addict Reviewer
    You know that hot jock in high school who never noticed you? Where you that girl thatbjustbfidnt fit in with any of the "crowds"? Then this book is defiantly something you can get behind. A chance encounter had a ripple effect that have two high school kids who were like ships passing in the night during high school, colliding head on, literally, as adults. Defiantly worth the read especially since it sets up the first full length novel in the series that I am dying to read.

    Good writing, good story, one small complaint. The words used to describe body parts. A little goes a long way.

    "GOING DOWN HARD" by Jordan Marie Another 5 seat read by the wonderful author, Jordan Marie. Casey has had a mad crush on Gavin throughout her school years. But unfortunately, Gavin has no idea who she is. One night at their high school prom they finally meet. The conversation is going a little slow as she is having a hard time finding her voice. Once she is able to start speaking they really seem to like each other and everything is going well....until his high school girlfriend and prom date starts looking for him. Gavin walks away from Casey never to see her again......until 12 years later. This book is hilariously funny and the sassy mouth on Casey is a complete turn on for the oh so sexy Gavin. I love their banter, but they also have their serious get to know you moments. Great chemistry between all of the characters in this book. Funny, sexy, sweet, conniving....you'll find it all here. So if you're looking for a great rom-com, you've got to read this book. This is book one of the "Doing Bad Things" series. Enjoy your read !

  • Going Down Hard: Gavin and Casey

    By jjeffrey77
    I freakin loved this newest book by the ever talented Jordan Marie!!! Casey and Gavin went to high school together. She had the biggest crush on him and he didn't even know that she was alive. 12 years later they find each other again...she is a makeup artist and he a stuntman working on the same film set. Things are going well until a silly little bet is made and Casey gets wind of it. Can Gavin prove to Casey that what he feels for her is real and the bet had absolutely nothing to do with them being together. This is such a funny, sweet and hot as heck story. I was hooked from the very beginning and hated to see it end. The chemistry between the two was off the charts hot. I loved everything about this book and can't wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Another 5 star read from Jordan Marie....well done!!! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
