Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother's affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she's planned. She's planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.
Dallas Brown lives a life all his own. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations but his own.
When Carmyn's fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can't seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she'd planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.
As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.
Carmyn drops her glass from her lips first and bites into the slice of lime she's holding in her other hand. Her lips wrap around the flesh of the fruit, and my dick flexes in earnest. I've watched women suck on me and not look nearly that seductive.
I freaking LOVED this book!
The characters were awesome. I especially loved, Ava. She was so much fun and the perfect best friend. The fountain scene was so funny and she only got better and better as the book went on. As did the gorgeous Carmyn. She was sweet and I liked her immediately. I wanted to punch Becker for what he did to her, and later for what he did to Dallas. He was a real scumbag, and even though it showed Dallas' violent side, I cheered him on when he clocked Becker in defence of Carmyn. Dallas was a great guy and quite the hottie. Even though he started out as a player, I liked the fact that he was open and upfront with the girls he'd been with. He didn't play games with them.
What I really loved about this story is that it showed that guys are not the only ones who get scared when it comes to admitting their feelings. In fact, sometimes it's the misunderstood guy who, when he has it, knows how to love unconditionally and irrevocably. And Dallas proved that in every way possible. I just wish Carmyn has seen, and felt, it sooner, then all the drama could have been avoided (But what would a great book be without a little drama!!)
This book was romantic and funny; it really had it all - drama, tragedy, passion, and most importantly, characters who drew these elements together in a way that made me want to cry one minute and smile the next. I've been reading a lot of NA Contemporary Romances of late, but this one definitely stands out as a fantastic read. One of my favorite!
