The first time I saw Carsen Wheatley, I flipped him off.
The second time, I kneed him in the balls.
The third? I kissed him.
Why? Because Carsen needed it.
Angry and full of hate, Carsen is a lost soul, searching. Since the death of his mother, he’s cold and isolated, needing someone to fill the gap she left wide open, someone to kiss the anger from his soul.
That’s where I come in.
I’m restless, on the search for a new adventure, something to make me feel…well, anything. I’m certain I’ll find a permanent fix soon, but in the meantime, I have this summer job and Carsen to keep me going.
But the summer is only temporary, and so is the fix.
We are imperfect.
We are mismatched.
We are the stars.
|"There's something about it, about him. I like him even when he's angry and mean. I especially like him when he's nice--which he's only been once. At the end of it all. I like him."|
Holy love/hate relationship, Batman!!!
Goodness me, I loved this book!!!
Elliot and Carsen start off on the completely wrong foot, but for some reason they can't seem to shake the attraction.
Carsen has a bad reputation, but Elliot can see past the clouds in his eyes. She sees the true man that he is...which almost scares Carsen. He uses his anger about his situation to ward off Elliot's advances to become friends. Which, in turn, brings out the spitfire within her!
It also makes for an incredible story!!!
"I'm sorry life is hard, but I won't be your punching bag."
Gah! I loved her gumption!! She never backed down from him.
I also really like that he started off as a bad boy type, but you start to see how broken he really is. Elliot is just what Carsen needs to break out of his comfort zone and prove to himself, and everyone else, that he is an amazing person.
The way these characters evolved over a short amount of time was wonderful to see. I became so immersed in their story. I wanted so much for them, but Teagan knows how to write perfect twists and turns along the way.
"I find you very attractive, which is part of the problem."
"The problem being?"
"And I'm polluted."
I loved this book so much!! I wish there was more!! Can there be more? Pleeease?!
There are also some awesome secondary characters that need some love as well;)
Teagan Hunter is one of my favorites to read, and she just keeps getting better! Congrats on another great book!!!
"He came out of nowhere and we collided like stars in the night sky. It was fast and brutal."
I’m a romance cover artist by day and a writer by…well, every free moment I get. I currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband where I spend my days bugging him about getting a cat so our puppy won’t be alone (he keeps saying no). I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural. I like cold weather, I buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never match my socks—unless they’re fuzzy.
I’m weird. It’s kind of my “thing.”
