Looking back, I should have seen it coming. Paige didn’t like that I went so far away to university. But it was going to only be for two years. She'd join me after she did her two years at community college. I thought we could swing that no problem. We were solid. But she hated the distance. She hated not seeing me every day. She complained that I didn’t come home enough. She hated that for months on end, texting and phone calls were our only form of communication. It wasn’t enough. She'd ask about the girls on campus. She’d gotten it into her head that girls were always making a play for me. I laughed and told her, even if that were true, I’d never cheat on her. She didn't seem completely reassured by that. The bottom line is, Paige thought she was losing me. She wanted me home with her. But I could never imagine the level she'd sink to—the trap she’d set to make that happen. And like an idiot I walked right into it. And it’s a mistake I'm going to have to pay for the rest of my life.

I would like to thank netgalley for the e-arc of this novella. And to hormones, for making life more dramatic.

Mitch and Paige are high school sweethearts. And now that they're in college, they're in a long-distance relationship. Whenever Mitch goes home lust takes over. And you know the rest...
So when Paige gets knocked up, Mitch is troubled. Will he give up his dream for her?

Mitch. His reaction towards the whole situation is so realistic. I know there are guys who will still own the responsibility. But do you really believe they didn't have doubts in their heads? What made it realistic are his thoughts. And yes, he is a coward.
Paige. She's calm about the whole situation. She's strong, and she needs to be. I'm so glad about the ending. How she ended up with a decision. Because damn! More drama to come, yey!

Really, really excited to read Trapped! I want to punch Mitch. I hope Paige at least gets to punch him or something.
And I don't normally read NA romance but this is good.
