My mouth is full of stew when Gray attacks. Stellar writing with great attention to detail, well fleshed out and relatable characters, an emotional journey, and steaminess as well. I was in heaven reading this story. In fact, it has the opposite effect. Nice to see a football player portrayed with intelligence, control and sensitivity.
She challenged and cared Drew when he needed it the most. Since my break up with Hayden sophomore year, I have made it a point not to see any guy more than once. Anna, is not afraid to put Drew in his place when he assumes she'd jump at the chance to be with him. And the annoyance continued because Anna was so damn stubborn and i wanted to shake her up to open her eyes and see the truth that was lying inside her heart. Especially after their hook up, which only proves that she also wants him, but doesn't want a relationship with him? Life, She insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living. His mother was Norwegian, and apparently Norwegian women believe in equality for all domestic tasks.
We nearly collided in the middle of the aisle. So many emotional scenes that were so intense, so distressing. Jeans and a t-shirt will just get me sent back to my room by Iris. There is no up or down, just Drew. It took me on a very emotional and equally enjoyable journey.
His expression is grim, scared, and it scares me more. My lips part and throb with the need to touch his. I suck at small talk and mingling. My mind screamed, Do something, you idiot! Drew, being the star quarterback at college falls for the quiet and reserved Anna Jones. I just want to go home and crawl under the covers. The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life.
Just own your emotions already. The tires crunch over gravel and the car rocks over a small bump. Those lines deepen now as his voice drops to a murmur. He didn't deserve to get through all those shits that she was. When the roll call reached the back row, a soft voice, rich and thick as maple syrup, slid over me.
It was emotional, it was funny, it was gripping in a way that I was unable to set this bad boy down once I took a peek at it! I stir from my vigil out the window. Read it to finish college and above all. Football has been good to Drew. I could go shopping or into town to watch a movie. Tossing my keys on the hall table, I make my way through the open concept living-dining room. They take football seriously down south, and his talent has them clambering for a piece of him. Accents like hers surround me on a daily basis.
We both wince before Iris lifts her pleading eyes to me. A dark chasm opens up beneath me, threatening to suck me down. She has no interest in football; he's the star quarterback. I'm continuing my way to share an excerpt from the world! She is like so many young women these days who have experienced some sort of bullying or body shaming due to their weight and even though she's no longer that chubby, awkward teenager from her High School days, that is exactly how she still views herself. She wasn't annoying though, when she finally got her shit together, she fought for Drew and helped him through rough times, she was there for him when he needed her most. His clarity of purpose and candor are so refreshing, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting more insights while reading the chapters from his point of view. There are numerous sex scenes and despite my recent criticism of a new-adult romance by another well-known author who has also turned her hand to new-adult stories, the sex scenes here are very well-written, steamy, without feeling gratuitous or excessive, and ultimately boring.
Yes, this is one teeny tiny flaw and she is human but I just want you to know everything. What starts as just hook-up sex, becomes more as the development of their romance also brings a true intimacy into their love scenes. And the fact that they couldn't kiss added so much sexual tension to the mix. Given that she told me this when I was sixteen, I basically rolled my eyes and worked on practicing my pass fakes. I might as well have been sacked.
To be brutally honest, my life has been fairly insulated. And I'm so screwed up because it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I don't have a light anymore unless you're there. It just makes the ending that much sweeter! His response sends a tingle through me. This insecurity is what caused me to not like her so much.
She has Machiavellian depths that I never considered. Believe me, I was referring to the best of places. Gently, Baylor relieves me of the knife before cupping the back of my neck. Callihan from the hook up game on your kindle device, this does not affect my way to introduce one stood out from publicist in love. Now, glancing at Lambert and then away, anxiety rolls within my stomach.
