THEY SAID SHE WAS GOING TO BE MY RUIN...
THEN LET HER RUIN ME.

He had everything—wealth, adoration, a brilliant future. Until one chance encounter changed everything.
The moment Caleb Lockhart spotted the mysterious woman in her siren red dress, he couldn't tear his eyes away.
For the first time in his life, he wanted something. Something he knew he could never have.
The unforgettable stranger he dubs RED.

First off, I want to say what drew me to this book, is that gorgeous cover. Its simple, yet complex and the colors are what take it to the next level. So kudos to the person(s) behind the cover art. 

Now moving on to the story, I wanted more. Let me explain, what I meant by that. I feel like, I've read stories similar to this book, so when I say I wanted more, I meant, something different then what is out there now to read. It could have been the smallest thing that could have changed this book for me, but it lacked the "wow" factor for me. I enjoyed reading (most) of the time. I did have sections, that I would loose interested in and put the book down for like a day or two. But with all that being said, it was still fun to read. 

This is your typical sexy rich college boy falling for the beautiful poor college girl. Caleb meets "Red" (Veronica) one night while she is wearing a red dress, hence the nickname of "Red". Veronica doesn't want anything to do with him and this of course, puts a bullseye on her for Caleb. Which things lead to her needing a place to live and Caleb takes her in. She pushes away over and over all his advances but he doesn't quit. The attraction is definitely there for both of them. Walls finally start to come down and this opens up for other problems when others want to tear them apart. 

Main thing, I want to say is don't give up on this story, the ending will make up for everything else. And get ready for a tremendous cliffhanger.
