Sometimes in love, you choose wrong…
Eight years ago, Lennon lost his heart to Rain, and suddenly she’s back, all grown up and sexy as hell. At a sorority party, he convinces himself that outbidding every other guy for a body shot from Rain is for charity. But he knows better. He doesn’t want any guy, except him, tarnishing the memory of the little girl he proposed to in fifth grade.
Jinx loves Lennon and is past ready for him to make his move. With his sexual prowess, she worries why he hasn’t made any advances. She fears she is losing him, and the only way to keep him is to overcome her past and give him what he desires.
Rain knows Lennon is trouble. If she couldn’t say no to the gangly boy asking her to skateboard off some roof, how will she refuse Lennon’s seductive powers now that he is a man? Rain has many reasons to resist his charm. He has a girlfriend, he’s moving to LA with her, and Rain has no intention to march in the long parade of Lennon Tyler conquests.
Now, Lennon must choose. Someone has to lose, and that person could be him.
I don’t really know what to tell you. I both loved and hated this book, but I am really glad that I got the chance to read it as the author provided me with a copy for this tour.
The plot was interesting right from the beginning, but I had a bit of difficulty getting into it. It is well written, but the first part does not make it easy for the reader to immerse himself in the universe of the book. I would also like to mention that the book can be read as a standalone even though it is connected to the first one.
I was able to see right from the beginning that Rain was really troubled. I have the feeling that there is more to it and we just saw in this book. Maybe the next one will explore the subject further. She is responsible and kind, but she has a darker side. I wasn’t bothered by her darker side per se, I was bothered that it seemed like she was two different people at times. In way those two sides work well together, but I still believe she needs a lot of help.
Lennon is nice and kind and I love the fact that he looked after his sister for so long. He had to grow up faster than other children. To me he seemed a lot older that he actually is. A lot of characters agree with me so this is a huge plus. The author managed to convince even the reader which is something that rarely happens. What I disliked about him is his inability to say no to women. I mean, seriously? I think I yelled WTF! at some point. I was so angry. After he got what he really wanted he goes goes and screws it up ( well almost, but still…). I couldn’t believe it. I did not like him because I thought he was toying with Rain and with Jinx. It took him long enough to realize what he really wanted.
The book is amazing, but you need to have the patience of a saint. So many things happen in this book that it seemed like it was never going to end. I never had this feeling before.
I recommend giving this book a try because it really is something special, but in order to enjoy it, I think you have to find a right moment.
From me: 3.5/5
