Author: Lisa Suzanne
Genre: Contemporary Romance
She has been hurt. She has a past of lies, cheating, and pain. She has severe panic attacks when she’s in enclosed spaces, a side effect of a horrible accident caused by a man she thought she loved. Quinn Carpenter has a distinct type: bad boys with dark hair, dark eyes, and tattoos. Tyler, her friend with benefits, fits the bill perfectly. They have fun together and they both know that fun is where their relationship begins and ends.
Quinn’s life is exactly how she wants it until she meets Reed Porter, the typical pretty boy with blue eyes, blonde hair, and zero tattoos. He is the exact opposite of everything Quinn likes.
So why can’t she get the frustrating, preppy, blue-eyed Reed out of her head?
She isn’t interested in commitment. She doesn’t want a relationship. But Reed challenges her, he puts her in her place, and he makes her nervous. The confident Quinn is never nervous around men, so what is it about Reed that has her questioning everything? And what will be the side effects of attempting to juggle two men at the same time?
Claire's 4.5**** Review
Quinn is quite happy with her life – after being hurt, twice, she’s quite content to spend her days teaching and her nights hooking up with one night stands, usually with Talented Twisted Tyler, the local bartender, how uses her a much as she uses him.
**Maybe is was all wrong and contradictory, but I’d thoroughly enjoyed my few moments of backseat pleasure with Talented Tyler.**
Reed Porter is so not her type, preppy, with no tattoo’s, she gives him short shrift when he tries to chat her up in their local bar but as life throws them together again she finds her bitchy side, totally confused as to how she could be attracted to him…
**”So are you always this bitchy? Or is it just when you’re drunk or hung over?”
“Are you always this preppy?” I imitated his condescending tone. **
Quinn’s bitchy side made me laugh out loud at times, but at other times I wanted to slap her face, she was so mean to Reed as she struggled with her feelings and he is such a sweet guy. He won’t take her shit and their relationship starts to develop, which causes Tyler a few problems as he decides now he’s in danger of losing Quinn he wants her.
Reed has another side to him, yeh he’s a sweet guy but between the sheets he is hot and Quinn finds herself falling for him.
Will she be able to allow herself to fall for him? With her history, his history, and Tyler all spanners in the works – it’s a close call, hence my fingers twitching to slap her again as she makes some VERY bad decisions.
I think you will thoroughly enjoy this book – it’s the 2nd I’ve read by Lisa Suzanne and they are great reads. Get your 1 click finger at the ready and pop it on your kindle for your summer read!
