Oh, man, I don’t know where to start here. This book’s plot is a solid bully romance, and their chemistry is rather good. However, this story’s beginning is a bit of a duck’s butt of weirdness in how it portrays “push and pull.” As a matter of fact, early Cole Travis comes across as a petty pre-pubescent rather than a sexy rock-god.
Monica has had a crappy experience with a crappy excuse for a human being. She’s scarred but trying to heal, and her new school has her latest crappy experience–a new bully. Just in time for the last crappy-excuse for a human to become a memory, another one is on her radar, but this one is hot, and she’s fascinated. Cole Travis is everywhere, and if she’s not looking at him, he’s looking at her.
Did I like the push and pull? It took a long time for it to work for me. When it started coming together, it was fantastic. It took a threshold point, but the beginning of the book was just manic and jarring. I wasn’t a fan. I kept with it because I LIKED MONICA! She was well written — Cole, not even a little.
In the end, this book was good. You can read better in this genre. You can read worse.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
