Ellie is a 22 year old girl and is still living at home with her mother and stepfather, and is very sweet, kind and is dating Cane.
Cane has been with her for a couple of years, they had a rough spot that they had to work through but all in all, has been a good relationship for the both of them. I really liked Cane too. He loves her and has been there for her and vise versa.
Reed is from Texas and has moved to Boston to gets some things under control in his life. He is at a club when he literally runs into Ellie. Sparks fly from the both of them. Ellie is intrigued by him but is in a relationship with Cane and doesn't want to jeopardize that so she lets it go. Reed on the other hand, doesn't care that she is in a relationship and wants her no matter if she is with someone or not.
Tyler is her best friend. He has a thing for her, and always has. She doesn't want to ruin her relationship with him so she doesn't cross the line. He is funny, smart and very sexy.
I honestly do not know who I would choose.
While Cane and Ellie are at work (they basically all work together), Cane introduces her to the "new guy" which happens to be Reed. Ellie is completely smitten and doesn't understand why she is feeling this way towards Reed when she loves Cane. At this point in my mind I was thinking, crap she is going to cheat on Cane with Reed causing all sorts of drama.
I honestly was going to stop reading it. Im a glad I stuck with it. I never saw it coming, Cane is the one that cheats on with an ex (the rough spot in their relationship when they first got together too!) which leaves open a spot for Reed. I had been wondering how the author was going to play that in.
I did feel sorry for Ellie, having to go through that again. Cane, I felt sorry for him too. He is genuinely a nice guy and didn't mean to do that to her, but he did cheat so that put him out of the running for me!
Now to the Likes!
I liked the relationship with Ellie and Reed. I liked how they took their time with each other creating a good friendship before things progressed into something more.
I really liked the style of writing from the author. I was so used to she did this and he did that, it is refreshing to have it in first person. A plus for me is it is in both point of views. I just like the feel of this so you can see how they both are feeling. I think she handled it very well with keeping up with this.
Now to the Dislikes!
Im a one man kinda girl and when it comes to cheating, that is a dead-end for me. To me, once a cheater always a cheater so I didn't like that when Ellie and Reed are in this new relationship, they both end up cheating. WTF. I just didn't understand why that was done. I just feel like that was thrown out of left field for me. I just didn't think it was needed in the story. I thought it was progressing very well they way that it was.
I also can understand cliffhangers; you want to keep people interested. Most authors are doing this nowadays that it is expected and you can usually tell that this is going to happen. However I was not expecting it in this one. It was given to me for an honest review that I didn't even read a synopsis so I had no clue that it was going to have one.
At certain points I felt like it was rushed and certain things at the end just got out of hand for me. I was just expecting something else and was kinda disappointed that it was not going my way! I know, I know, my issue not the author!
After talking with a good friend about it, I decided to sleep on it to get my thoughts together. I wanted to clear my head and not use my emotions in the heat of the moment type of deal because at the end of the day it was still a good read.
I can say that the author did get me hooked.
I cannot wait for the next installment to see what happens
I give 4 stars for the story!
I give 5 stars for the sexy parts!
UGH!!! The h in this story really ticks me off. When the book begins, I liked her. She was in a bar and from her inner dialogue I thought she was going to be a cool and strong chick - wrong! She is fickle and kind of dramatic about certain issues. I couldn't ever really get a feel for her.
The book begins with her boyfriend Cane and dangit, I liked him and they had some hot love scenes - then he cheats!! I cried and felt horrible for both Cane and Elle. Although Elle was already attracted to Reed who was a manwhore with a soft spot for Elle. Then there is the best friend Tyler. Good grief, heterosexual men and women cannot be best friends without some sexual tension or curiosity. Tyler of course is in love with Elle. Towards the end BEFORE she knows anything is amiss with new boyfriend Reed, she kisses Tyler. It is maddening. While Reed was out of state he almost had sex with his ex after promising Elle he would never do that to her like Cane had. His excuse was he was drunk.
The story abruptly ends with a cliffhanger. I purchased book 1 and 2 at the same time so now I am off to find out what happens because I am just a sucker that way.
This is not my typical read as I do not like love triangle and I don't like cheating and both were elements of this book. I can only give three stars because this book really needs an editor. There were typos and a lot of missing quotation marks. It got annoying after a while.
Elle: beautiful and doesn't know it
Reed: Mr. tall and handsome swoon.....
Tyler: the best friend who hot and stuck in the friend zone lol
What happens when you don't exactly have the best role models on what a realtionship so be like, when all you see is heartbreak and infidelity. While it would make anyone confused right? Well this is what happens when Elle isn't sure why she is feeling this way when she meets a new employee at her job, which she literally runs into him before at a night club she was at with some friends
Enter Reed a womanizer with his own trouble past literally knocks Elle off her feet
"Did you put another unsuspecting victim under your spell" ~ Tommy
"Nah, I think it's the other way around this time"
"God there's something about this one" ~ Reed
Although Elle has a boyfriend she can't understand why she's feeling this way towards Reed. Everything happens for a reason and I'm glad they did for her, Cade realizes what he's lost and now it's up to Reed to break down the walls Elle has up
"Doll, you could be my kryptonite"
"Never thought I'd see the day" ~Reed
But when things start to get rough for both of them can what they tried to build be broken. When you lose trust can you every trust anyone again? And is there a right time and right place for things to happen? This story had me turning page after page to find out what's In store. Will her best friend of 14 yrs move out of the friend zone in her time of need?
Read this amazing story to find out if love does conquer all !!
Fantastic Work the author is working on book 2 can't wait !!!!
