Months after getting kicked out of college my senior year, I made a split decision and moved in with my best friend and his roommate, Nix.
I never thought I’d try the whole ‘friends with benefits’ thing with Phoenix but he didn’t seem to mind when I offered up the idea.
We promised no feelings would get involved.
We lied to each other, to ourselves.
In his eyes, I wasn’t just the deaf girl or the family burden. I was beautiful and smart and a bit crazy with some anger issues which he overlooked because to him, I was normal.
We were never supposed to be more, but you can’t fight that pull when the stars align.
This book was REALLY good! The characters were extremely likable and the book was very well written. Also the cover, it’s so beautiful! I love a really well written friends-with-benefits turned more read. This was definitely a new take on it, given that the main character is living with a disability. She became deaf as a child due to meningitis.
I really love that this book didn’t have the characters be insta-love, it was a slow build, like a normal real-life relationship. They got to know each other. A definite must read for any romance lover!
I seriously lucked out and was given an ARC for Jennifer Armentrouts book. I seriously fangirl over her books, guys. So this was a dream come true.
So, as with any other JLA book, I got sucked in. I was supposed to be moving and getting my old house all packed and cleaned to move to my new house across the US. Nope. Didn’t happen. I sat down and binge read and ended up having to rush to get things done at the last minute. But, IT WAS SO WORTH IT!!!
Yes this is a suspense. But that doesn’t mean it is just a suspense novel. It’s got plenty of romance in it, like every other wonderful JLA book does. Cole is seriously a dream. He is literally the epitome of perfect.
The storyline is seriously amazing. The twist at the end totally catches you off guard. This book is insanely good, even if you aren’t a suspense lover it’s a must read!
Once again, Kasie West gives us an unforgettable romance novel. I am a HUGE fan of her work! My all time favorite being The Fill-In Boyfriend, now is tied with By Your Side.
Well behaved, goody Autumn finds herself locked in the local library with the school bad boy, Dax. West provides humor and romance through out the whole novel.
One thing that blew me away, the main character, Autumn, experiences anxiety. So rarely do books, especially romance novels, touch upon mental illness. Author Kasie West provided a really accurate look to anxiety disorders.
I look forward to reading all that Kasie West puts out, she is definitely an insta-buy author for me. I hope everyone takes the time to read this masterpiece.
