Oh the tangled web we weave…

Amelia and Justin were childhood sweethearts. At least until she broke his heart and ran away to live with her father. Nine years later, she inherited a house from her grandmother. The only problem? Half the house belongs to Justin – and he hates her. He also didn’t show up to the house alone.

This book had me feeling all the feels- that’s the first reason I’m giving this book one star.

I felt all the big ones from happiness to sadness to arousal to furstration but I also felt the more obscure ones and ‘WTF’, ‘Oh, HELL no he did not just say that’, ‘Ummmm’ and ‘Oh, my god’ were all things I said out loud during the course of this book. As the two are reunited and Justin doesn’t seem to be able to breathe without throwing a snarky comment in Amelia’s direction my anger levels were running high. I got frustrated with Amelia for just taking it but it turns out, killing someone with kindness sometimes really is the best way to sort it out. The sexual tension between the two is palpable and it was toe-curlingly delicious watching Justin try and fight against the attraction. This book is told from only Amelia’s POV and I felt like this only added to the angst and tension of this book because you’re left having to decipher Justin’s actions on your own.

This book made me change my mind- that’s the second reason I’m giving this book two stars.

I don’t want to give the plot away but I will say this: at about the midway point I had some serious doubts about this story and where it was going. Yet, this author managed to turn it around and change my mind about something which is a hard limit for me.

*Contains spoilers and yes ranting*

I'll be honest, I didn't care much for it. It was lukewarm at best even mid-way through. When I started the book I had to grit my teeth and kept on because I honestly could not stand Justin in the 1st half of it. I find his character very immature in how he acted. He held such a grudge for Amelia leaving him when they were kids. So he behaved like a complete jerk off to her when they meet again as adults. However, I find it funny that's it's Justin that ends up leaving her behind alot in the book. Multiple times. Either to go back to his life with his girlfriend, or back to his music career. He just did NOT choose Amelia over the other people/things going on in his life. Yet. So he needs to give the poor girl a break. She was freaking 15 when she ran away and broke his teenage heart and made him somewhat bitter. A scared girl who wasn't thinking clearly. It sucks but they weren't even an actual couple at that time or even aware of each other's feelings. Amelia did try to find him a year later to apologize and explain but he refuses to see her or fix their friendship. He let it fester and shuts her out of his life. And life went on. For both of them.

The story just dragged and I was over Justins' moody temper tantrum. Over the all TOO similar love-triangle that ended up nearly in the same way of Stepbrother Dearest . Alas, heroine was the other woman again. It was just like Elec and Greta all over. Amelia was nothing but kind and respectful to Justin even with his nasty insults and him rubbing his relationship in her face. I wanted to scream at her, "stop taking his abuse". I mean the whole "whore reference" already had me wanting to throat-punch him.

I am going to start off by saying that I generally enjoy this particular author. I didn't really read many reviews, I didn't feel I had to, since I like the author so much. But UGH.....

This book really should be labeled as young adult romance. If it wasn't for the amount of (almost obnoxious amount) of swearing, it could of been. 95% of this book is spent WAITING. Waiting for Amelia and - Geez I forgot his name already - Jason I think to get together. He is gone the majority of the book, either with his girlfriend or on tour.

***Spoilers Ahead***

So while I thought it was super cute that he didn't just fall into bed with her because he respected her and knew she wanted something stable (or not, she did mention a few times she just wanted someone to warm her bed). This first consummation was literally YEARS in the making. Decades even. So you think their first time is going to be emotionally charged and soul shaking. I mean, we did wait nearly the entire book for this 30 second bang, right? Nope. He's pulling her hair, smacking her butt and sticking his fingers in places I would make a man wait until at least the 3rd date for. How romantic.

So, if I could have a do-over, I want these hours of my life back. I am severely disappointed and hopefully managed to save someone from my fate.

Stay tuned, Cocky Bastard is on my next to-read list.

What a beautifully written story. Penelope Ward has a knack for creating characters that sing to one's heart and soul. Justin and Amelia's story spans decades long friendship. The pure love they have for one and other is tested in ways neither one could imagine. Justin, Amelia and Bea have a special place in my heart. Thank You
