*REVIEW* Redesigned (Off The Subject #2) by Denise Grover Swank

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 4 Stars

I'm really enjoying the Off The Subject series and the story lines are really good and very enjoyable.

This centres on Caroline and Reed. Caroline is friends with Scarlett, from book 1. She's a fashion design student at Southern University and her background was a very poor when she lived with her parents but she decided she could make something of herself. She has this thought process that she believes she has to have a high society husband who can provide for her and the family she wants to eventually have. She never thought she would have a strong attraction to a maths nerd like Reed. Reed asks her out at a party but she turns him down because he's not from a rich society and she even tells him that!! 

They seem to have a love, hate relationship and at time i never believed they were going to be together. This book is packed full of drama from the start and there are alot of secrets revealed throughout the book that's kept me gripped. Characters were both fantastic even though Caroline seemed so stuck up at times and i just wanted to strangle her for some of things she said to Reed. Great read and looking forward to reading Business As Usual book 3 which centres on Reed's sister, Lexi.

While fashion design major Caroline Hunter may have been born economically unlucky, in college, she’s been lucky in love. Until her senior year at Southern University. She’s gone from a serious long term boyfriend to a string of crappy dates. 

Then she meets mathematics grad student Reed Pendergraft. 

Reed is everything she’s not looking for. Serious. Headed for a low paying university job. Boring. Caroline spent the first eighteen years of her life wondering where her next meal was coming from. She sure wasn’t getting trapped in that life again with a man living on a professor’s salary. 

An encounter with Reed in a club proves she might have pegged him wrong. He brings out a lusty side she never knew she had. But just when she’s about to give in to her hormones, Reed makes a fool out of her. 

When she shows up for the first committee meeting for Southern University’s Fall fashion show, a fundraiser for underprivileged kids, Caroline’s horrified to discover the insufferable Reed is the committee chairman. While she refuses to tolerate his totalitarian rule of the committee, she’s not sure she’ll survive the month with her heart—and her pride—intact. Just when she thinks she has everything figured out, she finds that her entire life has been redesigned, thanks to Reed Pendergraft.
