Tessa is in her last year of high school and a few days away from turning 18. She has friends and her mother, yet always has felt alone. One day a new guy walks into the class and she is in awe of him. While everyone else around is judging, picking on him and calling him names, Tessa is day dreaming about him and wants to get to know him. She is falling for him fast!
Kevin is new to town and has a past he'd rather not share. He's not a bad guy, but he and his mother are trying to stay hidden from one. His first day of school he gets what is expected from his peers, but notices one girl that he believes he has no chance with.
Once Kevin and Tessa get to know each other even the first time they have a conversation the chemistry is visible. They are great together and I hope no one tries to stop them from being together!
This shows just how cruel teenagers and high school can be when Kevin ( aka - Luke ) disfigured by a fire shows up at a new school. But he is befriended by Tessa and it is young love at first sight. And Tessa finds out really fast who her true friends are. Even thought I personally finished high school years ago, it was really easy to put myself into the mind set of Luke & Tessa. These two were a joy to read about. Looking forward to reading the sequel 9 days and counting.
Even though the story of them continues in the sequel, I didn’t feel like there was something missing in this book; the story has a beautiful ending that works as a cliffhanger for the next book or as an open ending that will leave you with a smile. A great option for those who not only want to read sex with no plot but good erotica.
However, for this book I felt I absolutely needed to leave a review.
I put off reading this book for a very long time even though it is by my all time favorite author just simply because the intro made me believe that I may not like the ending. Well I wont give away the ending, because it is something even I myself wouldn't have expected.
But what I will tell you, is that from the first chapter this story draws you in and doesn't let go. If you are looking for something that will not only give you an amazing story line, but an even better ending then this is definitely the book you want to read.
Kevin is hiding a past he would rather not revisit. The visible burns and scars he has is nothing compared to the dark past he has experienced. His classmate's reaction to him is what he expected. There is only one girl he notices that doesn't look at him with repulsion.
Tessa is determined to get to know Kevin better. She makes it a point to single him out to get an opportunity to finally meet him. Kevin is stunned that such a beautiful girl as Tessa could be intrigued by his beastly appearance.
Will Tessa convince Kevin that her attraction to him is genuine? Can the two of them find a love that will carry them through time?
IN 9 DAYS is a wonderfully constructed young adult novel. Tessa and Kevin are characters your quickly fall in love with as you experience their growing attraction. Red Phoenix has done an outstanding job in this creation. How she interweaves a beauty and the beast theme is a work of a genius.
