Charade - Nyrae Dawn This is a New Adult, modern drama with an unashamedly old-fashioned love story, minus the railroad tracks partitioning the frat boys from the bad boys. The heroine, Cheyenne, took awhile to win me, though once her demons were unveiled, she became both inspiring and sympathetic. But Colt was the real draw. Most often, cliched rugged coolness like his is quickly diluted with sweet, syrupy, pussy-whipped sentiment. But he never loses character. His roughen steel goes well beyond his well-defined abs. Even when he succumbs to the un-coolness of love, he responds in a phone-crashing fit, and I absolutely love this about him. These H/h college kids are bound together, and as we discover, it is less by the ministrations of their self-serving games, and more by their potent and unexpected chemistry. This tear-jerking journey acknowledges that a love need not be perfect nor planned to warrant fighting to the death for it.
