Cara Pinkston, a 21 year old San Diego native, wants nothing more than to complete her final semester of college quietly and peacefully. A normally focused and reserved student, she becomes flustered after meeting her incredibly good-looking and wealthy classmate, Jason Bradley.
Jason wants Cara, and pursues her aggressively. A reluctant Cara gives in to him and is thrust into a fast paced, emotionally charged, roller coaster relationship. She has to decide if the flutters she feels are blissful butterflies or warning signs. Will Cara follow her lustful heart, or will she pay attention to the Red Flags?

WOW!!! Red Flags was a very emotional book for me. At first I liked Jason and then I hated him, and then I started to like him again, and by the end I hated him but secretly felt sorry for him. I am not going to sit here and tell you what the story is about because you can read the synopsis for that, but what I can tell you is that even though Jason’s actions in this book were a bit scary I couldn’t get enough. It was defiantly a page turner for me because I wanted to know if his behavior towards Cara would continue or if he would snap out of it. Luckily, I got both. Jason was controlling, possessive, secretive, and had mood swings that would give you wipe lash but on the other hand he was sweet, caring, and loved hard.
Their relationship throughout the book was not easy, they fought more than they got along but the electricity between them kept pulling them back together. Jason has secrets, secrets that he is not willing to share with Cara and the more time goes by the more red flags get thrown in the air and has Cara questioning everything about Jason and his past. They fight, yell, cuss, scream, storm out on each other almost everyday but something always pulls them back.
While reading this book I felt like I was at an amusement park riding a rollercoaster because with every page I turned I never knew what twists and turns were waiting for me. I am not sure that their relationship is healthy but for whatever reason Cara couldn’t stay away from Jason. Deep down I think Jason really truly loved Cara but in his own way. I am looking forward to reading book 2 from C.C. Brown to see where this story leads and understand the method to her madness.
