Shh! (Oxley College #1) by Stacey Nash 
Release Date: 02/23/15

Blurb DescriptionNineteen-year-old Olivia Dean has the perfect reputation, the perfect boyfriend, and an increasingly perfect CV. She has it all, until Christian breaks up with her in public, calling her out as a self-gratifying sexoholic: the kind that plays solo. But Olivia doesn’t masturbate all night — the only thing she does is sleep … right?

Now all the boys on campus seem to want her attention for the absolutely wrong reason — including resident hottie, Logan Hays. He's pulling out his best moves to gain her attention, so resisting his sexy charm is hard work. With rapidly slipping grades, a disturbingly lurid reputation and demanding parents, Olivia must discover the truth behind her rumoured sleeping problem. If she doesn't, the perfect life she's worked so hard for may slip away, including the one person who has Olivia breaking all her rules — Logan.

What do you do when you’re asleep?

Shh! is a story about acceptance, learning to trust and in turn love while facing life's unexpected difficulties.

NB: This book is of a mild heat level, and contains no explicit sex scenes.

So, I should start by saying that Shh! SERIOUSLY had be intrigued- I was absolutely DYING to see how Stacey Nash dealt with the whole perfect girl with a sex-o-mania disorder, and for they most part she didn't disappoint! Let me explain better-

But, before I do, I should tell you that Shh! Is more CLEAN than most YA books, and despite it being about sex and sex- disorders, there are almost no graphic scenes, (almost) no lusting- and it's basically not a steamy book- so don't be alarmed, or even expect that. The blurb kind of gives it away that the 'rumors' being spread about Olivia are completely true, and so what I was waiting for was how she dealt with it (you know what I mean, right?)

While what I got was- nothing. A few chapters at the end of the book with her doing a bit of research into her 'problem' and then deciding to not spend the night with anyone, which wasn't really dealing but more like avoiding and staying in denial, even after she taped a video, just to be sure that she really was doing what everyone was whispering about.

If you leave out that, though, you have your typical perfect girl, rebel hot boy that just seems to you know, GET her like nobody else has ever done, and her general feeling of isolation, till she makes new friends, re invents her life, and lives happily ever after.

All I can say is that while this book was okay at best, I KNOW it had the potential to be SO much more- and I'm extremely sad that it wasn't.

A cliche read for romance lovers (and yes, Logan Hays is SWOOOON worthy;)
