Anti-Commitment," she said only half-joking.
He breathed out heavily. The fact that you have the capability of convincing and persuading women for an indefinite amount of time to hold out for you until you break their hearts? Really, she had no idea where this was leading.
Why was he talking to her, of all people, about possibly marrying his girlfriend? He hadn't spoken to her in ages, and she was pretty sure her opinion on marriage was irrelevant to his decision.
After all, her opinions on relationships, in general, had always been irrelevant. She almost hadn't heard him. After a brief pause, he began to explain the mess he had gotten himself into. Not like a proposal or anything," he quickly corrected, "more like a question to see where our relationship was headed. I didn't have an answer for her. I mean what kind of guy has an answer for that? But as you know…I mean because of my parents…the thought of marriage tends to make me run head first in the opposite direction.
She pinned me down though, and said she would leave me that second if I didn't have an answer for her. That really took me off guard.

Any girl who had ever tried to pin him down for anything experienced instant rejection like a blow to the face. He chuckled a little at her reaction. Luckily, she took that as a positive answer and didn't break up with me. Then comes the part of the story where you come in.
I don't see how I could possibly come into a story about you marrying someone else. What we went through wasn't exactly marriage potential Jack. It's not like I can tell you what you should do in the situation," she said jumping the gun before she would let him ask for any advice. I think I must have missed something.
The girl that you are dating that you want to marry wants to meet me. I'm so…insignificant," she said trying to be earnest and sincere.
She couldn't even think about the different times her and Jack had tried to find the time to form some semblance of a relationship. Nothing had ever worked, and the last time… She stopped herself again from entertaining the thought.
The hole that Jack had been left still ached when prodded, and she avoided irritating the wounded feeling that crept through her. You know you're not insignificant. After awhile of listening to her breathe heavily, he spoke again. She wants to find out why I was unable to commit to them so that she can figure out why I'm not committing to her or so she thinks. And don't go saying that this doesn't apply to you either because we didn't date. I never mentioned you to her, but she heard about you from Kate.
You are letting this girl pick and pry through your past just so that you don't have to commit to marrying her right now? Well when Kate mentioned you and I didn't, you can guess that she wasn't terribly happy. Of course, she wouldn't be happy. Any female would be unhappy with the description Kate had probably bestowed upon her.
Knowing the way Kate felt about her, it probably went along the lines of temptress, devious, manipulative, conniving, two-faced whore with a few added expletives just for good measure. She seems to think that since I didn't tell her about you, that you somehow must hold all the answers as to why I am the way that I am. I tried to tell her that the last I had seen or heard from you had been before we'd even started dating.
This girl is almost as persistent as I am though. So, I guess what I'm saying is that I need you Lex," he said using his pet name for her. She didn't even want to consider whether or not he was worthkeeping around.
But, nonetheless, she mulled the idea over. Pass on that. I have other things to do. I'm kind of busy or have you forgotten? I have been working my ass off trying to save up for my last year. I don't even know if they would let me have the time off. I've never seen anyone take time off, and I don't particularly want to be the first one," she stated telling only a partial truth. The other three interns had all taken time off throughout the program, but it had been at the beginning before things had really started to pick up.
Lately, no one had had time to breathe let alone think of taking a weekend rendezvous out of the state. She may have had nothing planned for the day aside from her haircut, but that hardly kept her from being on call. I didn't realize," he said quietly. Just, please let me know if you happen to change your mind.
It really would help me out immensely. I can't get the time off, and even if I could, there's no way I could afford a plane ticket down there," she said off- hand. Of course, I would take care of you…uh…it…the ticket. The last time she had seen him he was just out of college, poor, and practically starving for a job. Of course he would be doing significantly better financially a year and a half later. Unlike her - sitting in a hundred thousand dollars or more of debt from school with a year left to go.
Sorry for waking you up so early. You have my number now," he said as if that solved all the issues. Thanks," she stated callously. Somehow, she restrained herself from flinging the stupid thing across the room. Usually, you get one or the other. There are very few authors that can manage to get these to line up.
Because, yes, that is how I felt when I finished. Linde created one of the most awe-inspiring groups of characters in my reading history. Once I was finished I wanted nothing more than to go download book two — because umm did you read that ending?! Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

I am still trying to get my emotions - mainly anger - under control after reading this one. I have not wanted to pummel a hero like this in a long time!
I'm not sure I can articulate how furious I am with Jack, but I'm going to give it a shot. The story begins in present-time, with Lexi receiving an unexpected phone call from an old friend, Jack. It is very apparent that Jack broke Lexi's heart and that there are some unresolved feelings lingering. Clearly, the two had an intense histor Wow! Clearly, the two had an intense history and Lexi never recovered from whatever Jack did to her.
Almost immediately, I wanted to strangle Jack. I didn't know who this guy was exactly at this point in the story, but I couldn't believe his audacity. With the obvious heartache that Lexi was still harboring, he calls and asks her to convince his new girlfriend that he is capable of commitment.
Say what? I was like, "This guy has some damn nerve! She agrees to do this "favor" for her old "friend". I knew that it would play out that way, but I was still like "Oh, hell no! After all, the story had to go somewhere. As I'm sure you can guess, Lexi and Jack together results in a flood of sexual tension and unresolved issues. It is so obvious that neither one has ever really gotten over the other one.
You know that you're in for a lot of drama and angst. The girlfriend, not surprisingly, ends up being a royal bitch. I loathed Bekah. Honestly, if she weren't so despicable, I might have felt bad for her. After all, she loved Jack and he was messing around with Lexi all the time. The fact that Bekah was such a horrible person really made it easy to overlook Jack and Lexi's indiscretions Like Lexi, I began to fall for Jack's charm and it was so easy to see how she got sucked in again.
However, Jack's sketchy behavior and indecisiveness has Lexi being jerked around. As their story unfolds through repeated flashbacks, it becomes clear that this is a long-standing pattern of behavior between Jack and Lexi.
Lexi and Jack meet in college and always seem to find their way back to each other. From their first date, Lexi is hooked. She can't get enough of him. The feeling is mutual, but there's a problem Jack has a girlfriend!
When the cat's finally out of the bag, Lexi is outraged. She, rightfully, walks out on Jack and tells him exactly what a scumbag he is. Yay, Lexi! At this point, I'm totally with her. I was feeling all indignant and high on my "girl-power" mojo. Picture me walking around my kitchen with my headphones on, drinking a glass of wine and cursing Jack while making dinner. Unfortunately for Lexi, that isn't the last time she will cross paths with Jack. Through mutual friends, their lives are intertwined.
Lexi eventually begins to date one of Jack's friends, which leads to more "chance" encounters between Jack and Lexi. This is where I started wanting to shake some sense into Lexi.
You know that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice Never has it been more applicable to a situation than it was to Lexi's. No matter what this guy did, she caved and fell for his charms again and again.
It was incredibly frustrating. At the same time, I couldn't help but want Lexi and Jack to end up together. I guess I kind of fell for his charms too. Jack is definitely a character that I loved to hate. He was irresistible, even though your brain tells you that he's bad news. There were so many times that I wanted to scream as he repeatedly broke Lexi's heart. At the same time, I was incredibly conflicted because she did her fair share of harm to others in her pursuit of Jack.
Part of me questioned whether or not Jack ever truly cared about Lexi at all. After all, his actions sure didn't show it. Maybe I've deluded myself as much as Lexi did, but I just can't believe that he didn't really love Lexi.
Regardless of what my heart says, my brain says that Lexi should have some self-respect. Honestly, the things that Jack did were inexcusable. Not that he spent much time groveling, but I'm not sure that there would be enough groveling - ever - to make up for the way he treated Lexi.
Lexi's best move would be to pack up and move somewhere far, far away. The ending of this book really threw me for a loop. I could not believe it! I wanted to throw a temper tantrum. That being said, I could not pull myself away from this story. I immediately jumped into the next book in the series and have marathon read the entire series in a couple of days. It was like watching a bad wreck unfold in front of my eyes.
I couldn't stop watching as their sordid lives played out for me. I don't think I've read a cheating book that was this angsty and had me tied in knots like this since reading S. Stephen's 'Thoughtless'. Holy hell! It's painful, but I'm hooked. Check out more of my reviews at www. View all 43 comments. Aug 23, Tarryn Fisher rated it really liked it. Do not read this book around other people Do not read this book if you are abstaining from sex Do not read this book if you are happy Do not read this book if you are a goody-too-shoes Do read this book if you are a bad boy lover, or a villain lover, or a drama addict.
View all 10 comments. Jul 24, FreakChiq rated it did not like it Shelves: Avoiding Commitment tells the story of Alexa or Lexi as she likes to be called , a something college student who, after 6 years of doing the same bullshit again and again, has apparently learned absolutely nothing from her mistakes, and Jack, the most prime example of a lying, manipulative player. I picked this book up because a few people compared it to S. So I was fully prepared for a similar bumpy rollercoaster ride full of drama, conflict and variety of emotions.
But this? The only emotion I've felt was hatred for the characters and their selfishness and self-centered behavior.
Lexi and Jack must be the most egoistic and unlikable characters I've ever came across in a book. Both are liars and cheaters and have no redeeming quality whatsoever. I mean, this could have easily been called 50 Shades of Blue Eyes.
Frankly, I'm not sure why this book got such great reviews. I had a really hard time finishing it and I found myself skipping entire chapters just to put an end to the torture faster. Final verdict: View all 29 comments. Oct 16, Bayli added it Shelves: I'm not going to give this an actual rating because I'm not sure how to go about it!
It obviously made me feel a lot so that shows Ms Linde really knows how to bring out emotions in the reader I just feel conflicted lol! Linde is a good writer. She has a way of describing things and really brining a person into her world.
This book was not for me Mostly because Lexi drove me absolut I'm not going to give this an actual rating because I'm not sure how to go about it! Mostly because Lexi drove me absolutely mad. In my opinion she never redeemed herself, ever. The characters in this book annoyed me.
And by annoyed I mean they really pissed me off. And by pissed me off I mean this was the most destructive relationship. And by most destructive relationship ever I mean they both were complete idiots. Jack is the biggest asshole I have ever read about. Seriously He just used women and then threw them away. Actually he didnt throw them away.
He kept them and dragged them along and lied to them. He lead Lexi on for 6 freakin years! And even though he swore he would never again lie to her he lied to her for the entirety of their "friendship" saying he wanted, loved, needed her, lies lies, lies, lies. What an ass. Lexi has zero self respect.
Absolutely NONE! Even when she or Jack is in a relationship she continues to want him and usually does end up screwing him. Like she thinks he's going to just drop everything and be with her. It doesnt matter how many times Jack burns her- she just keeps coming back for more.
Even though there is a perfectly handsome man named, Ramsey, who totally wants her and is a complete sweet heart to her. I just really had an issue with Lexi and Jack Lexi and me I know lots of people that did.
I'm just weird. View all 45 comments. Jun 26, Taryn rated it it was amazing Shelves: More like ten stars! I don't normally add photos to my reviews. Then I decided I couldn't just have a photo of Ramsey and not Jack. So a friend found this photo of Jack, and I must say she is spot on.
Those piercing blue eyes and devilish smirk is exactly how Jack is described in Avoiding Commitment. The drama.. The romance The cheating The deceitful lies.. The romance.. The drama My heart was shattered and ripped to pieces while my stomach was doing back flips. This book played a number on my heart and I relished in every bit of it. I loved how it hurt. If I never read another book again, I would be satisfied for all eternity.
Okay, well maybe not forever. But this one is special. Jack and Lexi have a complex relationship. The love and desire they have for each other is obvious. The air between Jack and Lexi is so dense it was to the point where they are suffocating in each others presence.
They want each other with a force that makes it difficult to breathe. Jack is a habitual liar. It was painful and heartbreaking for her to bear, but her heart would be sewn back together with the soothing comforting words from Jack. She became vulnerable and powerless under his gaze.
Lexi gave him everything he wanted and she got nothing in return. I got to a point where I started to believe Jack would finally do right. I thought after all these promises he was making would mean something, but then he does the unthinkable.
I hated him for what he did, but it felt so damn good to see Lexi finally lay into him. I think he has what she needs. Lexi needs to be cherished and loved, not lied to repeatedly with broken promises. I could not believe my eyes when I read how low and dirty they played Lexi. I will say that Chyna is the perfect best friend! Loved watching their friendship. My feelings on who Lexie should be with are totally conflicted. On one hand I really want Jack But on the other hand, I see the way Ramsey looks at Lexi and I know how he feels about her.
I think Ramsey genuinely cares for her This review is possibly the hardest review for me to write to date. To say Avoiding Commitment was amazing is an understatement. This is the kind of book I look high and low for and can hardly find.
I want a book where it's going to take me on a wild ride emotionally and mentally making me feel and understand what the characters are going through. And this book did that and so much more. The story and writing flowed flawlessly.
We were transported from past to present with each chapter alternating easily. Oh no! The character development was superb and we were not left trying to figure out who they are. I don't know how I managed the last quarter of this book.
It was so powerful and moving and hot! Oh man! I plan to read it again actually. Linde is a new independent author that I think will quickly rise to the top. Be prepared for the impact her words will have on you. Avoiding Commitment was intoxicating and sensational! She is also one of my favorite new authors now and will be buying every book she puts out.
What is it with all these independent authors lately? Favorite lines- "Do we have to talk about Clark? You were the only one I saw when I closed my eyes," he said bringing his hand up to cup her chin and titling her head up to look into his crystal blue eyes, "Then why wasn't I enough when they were open?
She couldn't believe the words had come out of her mouth. She had been thinking them all along, but the words struck too close to home for their relationship. His hand reached down, hitched her left leg up around his waist, and pushed himself against her. I will never trust you. I will never again be comfortable around you. I will never look at you or think of you without considering the destruction you have train wrecked through my life.
View all comments. They were lovers and most definitely in love. Yet, they were a disaster together. This book, my friends, has made an emotional wreck out of me.
So be warned, I will cuss and swear, a lot, in this review: I think I just had a minor stroke. They need a support group for those who read this book. I need a place to vent. I feel like punching something, or better yet, I want to virtually slap a few characters in this book. My heart hurts and my mind is in chaos.
Listen to me, and listen to me good.
This story will fuck with you. Simply because Jack dished out the pain over and over again and Lexi just keeps coming back for more. The emotional damage these two inflicted on each other is beyond any physical pain one can endure.
The masochist in me wanted to feel the pain and I desperately wanted to know how it will all pan out. You are a sadist and the worst kind of character. I love and hate you at the same time. I love your charm and the alpha-ness in you. The fact you have this unattainable quality, makes me want you even more.
You constantly inflict heartache and misery every time you re-enter her life. You hurt me severely and I will no longer fall for your antics. You are officially on my shit list. She has made up her mind about where her life is headed. This time, she is sticking to her guns, no matter what. That is, until a phone call shatters the fragile grasp she has on her new life. Lexi is forced to question everything she thought she knew about what she wanted, and life-changing events push her to reevaluate the very plans she holds so dear.
Nevertheless, Lexi has to choose her true path. In this highly anticipated final installment of the bestselling Avoiding series, follow Lexi as she juggles a new career, a new city, and the burgeoning affections of three very different men.
