Book 1 of 2
Viola hates Travis but she has a huge crush on him. He hurt her when she was 13 and she never got over it. To me, since she is 22 years old in the present, it means she is emotionally a 5 year old for holding a childhood grudge for so long. It's pathetic. I'm not a fan of her. Travis is a man whore who enjoys giving Viola a hard time when he can. He's pretty typical for this kind of book.
Their love-hate relationship drags on excessively in the book. I skipped chapters and didn't miss a thing by doing it. There is no need for this story to be stretched out to 2 books.
There wasn't a whole lot of imagination that went into this book. It's your typical "he's a jerk to her then he adores her" romance. I mention that because 2 award winning authors wrote this book. I expected something better than a run of the mill romance.
Travis, lets be real, is a f*@$king b@$#ard! He is a bad boy player, he loves women and loves one night stands. But what you don't know about him is his heart always belonged to just one women. *Which in my opinion is why he only has one night stands, he doesn't let anyone in and doesn't have the heart to let himself have anyone.*
Viola is Travis's best friend Drew's little sister. They grew up across the street from each other. As kids, they were always really close. Travis didn't grow up in the best home life and when things were rough, he would sneak out across the street and sit on the roof with Viola. Then one day, as young teens, Viola just started hating Travis, leaving Travis to wonder what happened and why, their friendship ending.
This story has secrets, both past and present that they need to get off their chests. Kennedy Fox is amazing! I had so much fun reading this book and I can't get Viola and Travis out of my head! The best books and characters stay with you. Kennedy Fox is going to be around for a long time! I will be continuing this series! Book two and three are now out! I have already started book two! Love! Love! Love!
I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to EVERYONE and ANYONE! It will not take a lot to suck you in! Give it two chapters, HE-double hockey sticks, give it the first chapter, and you won't be able to put it down! So, if you plan on starting this soon, *Please Do!* then make sure your afternoon is open, because you won't be able to stop!
I think it is safe to say-- 5 Owls... or should I say Foxes!
Travis King and Viola Fisher were friends and neighbors until she turned 13 and overheard him telling her brother, his best friend, she was just a pity friend. That broke her heart and then seeing him go from girl to girl in high school just made her hate him. Then as a man he becomes a tattooed, cocky, man-whore and that just sickens her. Travis always has had feeling for V, but her turning her back on him as kids with no explanations just hurts to much so while she openly hates him, he pushes her buttons and tells her how nerdy and prudish she is.
Spring Break has arrived and she decides to stay at her brothers and Travis's place for the 2 weeks. But her brother decides to take vacation and go see his girlfriend which leaves these two enemies alone together. A game of up-man-ship ensues and words lead to pranks and then to touches and kisses. V is still unsure of where she stands and tries to leave her heart out of this affair and knows it may be just to late for that. Travis has had her, they have cleared the air and he knows he has to prove himself to her but work is getting in the way. So, a late night drive ends up in an accident with another woman in the car just has us asking, WTH??
