Blog Tour Stop: Hard Knox (The Outsider Chronicles #1) by Nicole Williams

Knox Jagger. The name inspires resent in every male at Sinclair University, want in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase.

Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.

As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.

How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s become . . .

Hard Knox.

3.5 Stars

Get ready to meet a bad boy, Knox Jagger. Seriously? Just the name "Knox Jagger" screams bad boy!

Charlie Chase is a feisty college student and reporter for the Campus newspaper--she's known around campus as the "nosy, I'm getting the story" girl. She's not the most likeable girl on campus, but she holds her own and doesn't take crap from anyone.

Charlie is working on a story of who's been dropping pills in girl's drinks during campus party. But while going "undercover," she gets a little more than she bargains for while investigating this story. 

She meets "I collect women's panties" Knox Jagger at a Frat party. Charlie assumes and clearly judges him by all the rumors immediately. But Knox isn't intimidated by Charlie and her judgmental opinions. He calls her out on everything. I did love their first meeting--it was funny and their banter between each other is cute.  

Charlie and Knox eventually develop an unlikely friendship after Charlie herself is slipped a pill. These two remain close friends, but the chemistry between the two are undeniable. 

Hard Knox takes you on a wild ride of getting to the bottom of the story. It's filled with secrets and a little bit of action. It's a great, quick weekend read!
