Allie Everhart writes about dating, love, and romance. She’s also a freelance writer for magazines and websites. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, running, or binge-watching TV shows on DVD. Some of her favorites are Gilmore Girls, Mad Men, Veronica Mars, and Gossip Girl. When writing her novels, Allie likes to drink dark-roast coffee when writing suspense scenes and red wine when writing love scenes. And eating chocolate is good when writing any kind of scene.

Top 5 Favorite Romances

You've Got MailI liked that the romance between the couple (Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks) took time to build and that she didn't make it easy for him.

Wait for You. (by J. Lynn). Avery had issues to get over and I liked that Cam helped her get past them. I also liked that the romance developed slowly, no insta-love.

Gilmore Girls. Luke and Lorelai drove me crazy with their on-again, off-again romance but it finally worked out in the end. I like how Luke always cared about Lorelai even when they weren’t dating, helping her out whenever she or Rory needed something.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I liked how Angel was protective of Buffy and kept watch on her from afar. I loved it when the two of them finally got together. But as soon as they did, they had to break apart! (sigh) I longed for them to get back together in the Angel/Buffy crossover episodes but it never happened. And for the record, I did not like Buffy with Spike. 

Shrek and Fiona. At first they seemed so different, but they were actually a perfect match. I loved how Fiona brought out the sweet side of Shrek. You know you’re a good couple when you bring out the best in each other. 

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.

Jade and Garret’s Relationship
Jade and Garret come from opposite worlds and yet they understand each other in a way nobody else can. Jade has a lot of issues to deal with, but Garret is always patient with her, which just shows how much he cares for her. That’s what’s so great about Garret. He doesn’t just tell Jade he loves her, he shows her through his actions. And by doing that, he teaches Jade how to love, which is something she never learned growing up. Their relationship takes time to develop and by the end of book 4, you really feel how much Jade and Garret love each other and you find yourself rooting for their love to last.
