Review: Frat House Confessions: Ridge by Bethany Lopez

She has a broken heart and revenge on her mind...

Last year Karrie was riding high. She had a boyfriend she loved, a softball scholarship, and the best roommate a girl could have.
When it turned out her man was a lying, cheating ballsack, she may have gone off the rails a bit.
Now, it's a new year and Karrie's ready to build herself back up and move on to bigger and better things.
Still, a little revenge would go a long way in helping the healing process.

He's got a plan for revenge that will suit them both...

Ridge is used to being the BMOC. Sergeant of Arms of his frat and the ability to land any chick within snapping distance has made life pretty easy for him.
His home life is another story. He and his brothers are in the middle of a battle between his socialite mother and asshole father.
Ridge is looking for a stand-in to placate his mother and her matchmaking ways, and he has a feeling he's just met the girl he can perfectly mold.

This makeover has nothing to do with love and everything to do with Karrie and Ridge using each other to get what they want. What starts as a ruse soon becomes an attraction they cannot deny. When it's all said and done, they'll both have more to confess than a need for revenge.

Frat House Confessions: Ridge is the first in the Frat House Confessions series.  The aspect of the 'confessions" comes in the form of a frat brother who everyone goes to for advice.  This one is Ridge and Karrie's story.  This was a nice return to the "New Adult" genre that seems to be missing lately.  The story has the fake boyfriend trope.   Ridge and Karrie were great together.  Karrie really threw Ridge for a loop because she was unlike any other girl he had every hooked up with.  What I really liked about this relationship was that they waited to become intimate.  I felt like they really became friends first.   I was rooting for them.

I listened to the audio-book for this one.  I thought it was well done.  The narrators did an excellent job.  One of my favorite things about audio-books is when there is more than one narrator.  That aspect really enhanced the listening experience for this one.    The next book is Wes's story.  I look forward to reading it.
