Lawful Overdose by Justine Elvira

*Warning: This book is for mature audiences. It contains drugs, sex, underage drinking, harsh language, and is panty melting hot! 


Since the death of her sister, Tessa Grayson is invisible at home. Her parents barely speak to her or show any affection, so Tessa seeks affection from men. 

It’s the summer going into Tessa’s junior year of college. Instead of going home for the summer, she stays in her small college town with her best friend and roommate, Piper. To make money, Tessa and Piper waitress at a local bar and grill. It’s a hotspot for college kids and a few townies. 

On her first night working after a depressing visit with her parents, she meets Jaxon Wyatt. Jaxon just transferred to Eastern for his senior year of college to be closer to his brother. He is mysterious and badass, exactly what Tessa wants, but is trying to stay away from.

After a night of wild partying, Tessa is looking to get lost in Jaxon. Their attraction is undeniable, but Jaxon wants more. Jaxon and Tessa become closer, but he is hiding a secret. A secret that could break the bond he and Tessa share. 

What will happen when Tessa finds out that Jaxon isn’t who he claims to be? Can Tessa continue a relationship with someone who supports everything she’s against, or does Jaxon have one more secret up his sleeve?

4 stars
 I was contacted by Justine to review this book. It sounded like it would be okay so I agreed. There wasn't really anything in the synopsis that grabbed me but it didn't sound horrible so I started it and it was really good. I was surprised at how much I liked it. There were some errors but it didn't take away from the story so I overlooked them. Now, there was no huge WOW! moment or anything but it was great and I loved it. Tessa is a messed up college girl who wants to feel loved just for a few minutes the only thing is she has forgotten what that even feels like. Basically her life is school, work, and partying with her best friend. One summer day when she is at work she meets her boss' brother Jaxon who has just transferred to her school and they are pulled to each other. Of course Tessa just wants a one nightstand. You learn why Tessa is the way she is and it is a little sad and pulls at your heart. It really is good and I think everyone should read it and find out what secrets Jaxon has and can Tessa get past them? Will they get their happily ever after or will they go their own ways?
