Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Only Exception by Magan Vernon!

Publication date: 9th April 2013
Paperback edition: 272 pages
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor's son, Trey Chapman.

No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her
skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.

A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.

Favourite quote: "He kissed me with a fire like no other, as if he were afraid breaking the kiss would break us."

I loved this book! I knew that I was going to love it as soon as I saw the cover and read the synopsis! Everything about it was amazing and it the plot was definitely one of a kind! I have never read anything like this plot before so I was intrigued to find out more and learn something from it and that is exactly what happened! I learned more about American politics which was pretty amazing as we actually discuss American politics in my Modern Studies course so I learned some things that I didn't know from this book! The plot was full of romance, debates and secrets! I really enjoyed the plot and I loved that the author added some twists to keep it interesting and to change things up a little! The pace was also perfect and I didn't lose interest once! The characters were amazing! Monica was the main character and I loved her! I loved that she stood up for what she believed in and she didn't back down when someone challenged her! I felt sorry for her as her secret must have been so hard for her to go through! Trey was the love interest of Monique and I loved him as well! Trey wasn't really like a lot of other male character that I have read as he was the sort of boy that you would take home to meet your parents but he also had a sexy side that came out at times in the book and it came out when he was with Monica the most! I didn't think that I was going to like him after what he made Monica face near the end of the book but once I noticed that it was helping Monica to come to terms with what had happened to her and helped her face her troubles head on then I understood why he did it! Monique and Trey's relationship was full of debates! They were very witty characters and the two of them were very passionate about politics which I loved! I really enjoyed the ending but I felt so sorry for Monica! It made the whole book for me as it was exactly what Monique needed to come to terms with what had happened to her and I was so glad that Trey took the step with her! I would love another book to Monica and Trey's relationship as they were both amazing characters and I really enjoyed this book! I can completely understand why this book is a standalone though! I also love the cover and I think that it really suits the book! Big thank you to Magan for an ARC of The Only Exception and to Supagurl Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!
