She’s much too innocent for me, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting the sweet, young librarian. I’m dominating and possessive, and my control streak runs a mile wide.

The way she looks at me—like I’m one of the heroes in the books she loves, like I’m broken, and she wants to be the one to piece me back together—it only complicates things further. I’m nobody’s hero. But there’s no denying my tragic past reads like one of her favorite literary classics. It’s raw. Visceral. Captivating. And together, we’re a perfect mess.

How can I resist when the sexual sparks zapping between us set me on fire? The need to control, and claim her force my walls to come tumbling down, but when she learns about my dirty little secret, will my world come crashing down with it?

“My brain knew Cooper was the safe choice. But my heart?
My heart yearned for Gavin.” 

Spoiler Free Review:

I’m disappointed. Not gonna lie, I’m really disappointed. I went into this with such high hopes! Obviously, after the awesomeness of The Room Mates Series this was only going to get better. Alas, that was not the case.

“She was all wrong for me. Innocent where I was hardened, and sweet where I was rough. She’d want a tender lover, someone who was gentle and took his time warming her up, not some asshole..”

Where to begin…First of, this was a cringe fest. The number of times I had to put it down and breathe was sadly at an all time high.  Gavin’s personality is incredibly annoying and frustrating. Which is obviously the point, him being an ass and all, but it was too much for me.  Not to mention, that ‘ending’. If I could even call it that!! What was that!? The book just stopped mid-plot?! WHAT?

Look, I did give it three stars, alright. So there had to be some good.
A. Triple POV which is awesome. If having a POV can be a trope. Then it is definitely mine!
B. The ball gowns and dresses. I’m a sucker for that.
C. She’s a librarian. One of my dream jobs.
D. Cooper. Because his name is as cute as a puppies.
E. Character Development.

Would I be moving on to the next book in this series? We shall see.

Until Next Time!
