Review Originally Posted at: Book Freak

Brendan Clark had loved one person his entire life. He could ran away with the boyfriend of the year award – but he was betrayed by the one person he trusted the most. She cheated on him and left him for another man. So, he decided enough was enough. He was now on the prowl – together with his buddy, Mark and the rest of the gang, there was no way he was letting any woman to break his heart once again. He will do casual, have sex out of necessity rather than emotions.

She had loved him since she first saw him, and Brendan had never even noticed that Annie was alive. Now, after four years, he’s single. It was her time to shine, to finally make the move for him to notice her. She had been waiting for this all her life.

But all her plans went into drain, and her heart were shattered all over he places when he notices her friend rather than her, and when her supposedly-friend jumped into her forever-love for a roll in the hay. Suddenly, she wanted to escape. She wanted some change – he saw her, but he didn’t really see her. She was just some girl not worth of any attention, and it was killing her. How can she loved him all this time, and just proved himself worthless of her emotions?

Then, she made a hasty decision to just get out of school, packed her bags and go to Europe. Five years later, she came back, eager to start a new in the city that had broken her heart.

It was short, sensual and casual. It’s amazing what broken hearts and betrayals can do to good people. It changes them – makes them hard, and makes them different. I was sad for Brandon and Annie, I wished Annie was brave enough to tell him about what she feels rather than ran away.

This story was interesting. We meet Brendan and he has decided to go for hook-ups because he had just gone through a horrible break-up. He starts to go to parties again and hook-up with random girls. He seems to look right through Annie. He sees her best friend and immediately looks past Annie. He is kind of a tool about it. I get a broken heart and everything but treating women that way is never ok. I do feel bad for him though. The way his character is treated really isn’t fair. It is funny to me that he feels something when he looks at Annie but he is going to ignore it. Like every male out there lol.

Annie has been in love with the same guy since her freshmen year of college. The only problem is he doesn’t know she exists. She is a goth wearing hopeless romantic. She is sarcastic and a huge smart-ass. I actually liked her character a whole lot. She was honest and had high morals. I thought that she was very brave too, which you won’t see until the end of the book.

The writing flowed really well. I liked the fun little messages at the top of the page. They just held little details the author could have put in the book but I thought it was fun to read them before the chapter. The problem I had with the book was that the story really didn’t go anywhere. We met them and that is about it. We didn’t get any romance between the two of them. It felt more like a prequel novella than an actual novel. Other than that I really liked the book.

We don’t actually meet Annie until Chapter 4, which is a bit unusual for a central character. At the time of reading I was surprised, in hind sight; I can see where the author wanted to build the history as to how the situation came to be. Annie is a loner, stuck in a Goth phase but let’s face it she uses it as an emotional cover-up or crutch. She has only one friend, her roommate Corinne. Corinne is almost the antithesis of Annie with her pinup looks, extroverted personality, and often wild behavior. Annie prefers to be the wallflower. After a less than ideal situation and fight with Corinne, she realizes she’s simply been sad and lonely for a long time. Thrusting her entire life aside, she thrown caution to the wind and makes an abrupt and life altering change.

Brendan has had his heart shattered by his long-term girlfriend. He had doted over her for many years, choosing to ignore the womanizing ways of his closest friends. The only thing he ever wanted was to make Sara happy. Even when she up and moved across the country, Brendan was still crafting ways to make their relationship work. It wasn’t until she revealed she’s engaged to someone else did he figure out they were over. It was then he snapped and began to rethink he previously committed ways. He wondered why he’d been so respectful to her and in turn all women when they weren’t deserving of it. All he could see was the pain women caused the men around him. With this in mind, he sets about drastically revolutionizing his approach to women and decides it’s time to be like his friends, just having a string of one night stands without emotion involved. It’s then he makes some less than ideal decisions, but it’s those choices which lead his and Annie’s paths to cross—just not in the way you’d expect.

I received this book from Sabrina Lacey and “Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock” in exchange for an honest review.

Annie is a junior in college and is totally in love with Brendan (also a college student). The only problem is that he doesn’t even know she exists. He’s right out of a break up, and on a mission for hook-ups. She’s shy and oh so sassy. Could they be meant for each other? Maybe! But you’ll have to read the rest of the books in the series because this ends on a total cliffhanger!

Brendan was definitely a hottie, and his confusion at the women’s mind was totally adorable. I would have liked to read more steamy scenes because it fell a little flat in that department. There were some witty comebacks that were enjoyable. I absolutely felt betrayed by “blondie”. She was so lucky I wasn’t a part of this book or I so would have slapped her! Annie’s character was too submissive for my taste, and she could have been more developed as a whole.

I was disappointed with the time lapse. There was so much in that time frame that I would have liked to know about on their journeys to their current situations, jobs, lives, etc. This would have been a perfect opportunity for character development.

This was a quick read, and it did suck me in wanting to know what will happen next. Although I was upset with Blondie’s actions, I felt it added to the story as a whole, and it was well written. 3 fangs for the original storyline and crazy banshee!
