Have you ever loved a book so much that you couldn’t wait to devour all the books in the series? That was me with this book!
Sixteen-year-old Brooke Pierce doesn’t need her mom to tell her all boys are trouble. After watching her dad break up the family for a woman half his age, dating is the last thing on her mind.
On the first day at a new high school Brooke meets Luke, the school flirt with a reputation for heartbreak. He’s interested. She’s not. That only makes him chase her more.
After a shocking revelation from her dad, Brooke and Luke form an unexpected bond, complete with crazy rules to keep them safely in the friend zone. Problem is, that’s the worst place to be when you’re falling in love.
I received this book free from the author by signing up for her newsletter. I knew the author but hadn’t read anything by her when I picked this one up. So, with Mr. Chu drawing a chalk picture on the chalkboard bar that has long-since been removed (too little space, too much chalk dust) and Lady Quinn nestled in my arms, finally asleep (we seem to go through these phases quite a bit), I opened up my Google Play Books app and started reading.
Okay, so that was mid-morning. By evening, I had finished the book (yes, it’s only a 100-something page novella but I have two small children who seem to require A LOT of attention when I sit down to start reading!). And the verdict? It. Was. Amazing! I got to the last page and sat there staring at it. I couldn’t believe it was over. And oh, did I ever crave more! (I think this might be part of my problem . . . you know, why I just can’t get into stand-alones. I always want more). If I didn’t already own every book that had been published at that point, I would have been on Amazon within seconds, madly searching out the next book in the series. It’s that addicting (well, and I might have a teensy book buying problem but shush, no one needs to know that!).
Oh, and writing this review is torture because I just want to gush, gush, gush about this book! But, for obvious reasons (spoilers), I can’t. So, you’ll just have to go pick it up for yourself on Amazon (or, if you want it for free, sign up for Lindzee’s newsletter to get your own copy!).
Happy Monday! Have any book suggestions for me? BookTube-A-Thon starts today and I think I am completely throwing my TBR out the window!
