Hannah Rhodes has just gotten out of a long term relationship, and she isn't looking for a new man in her life. But after a night out with the girls and one too many tequila shots, her plans to stay man free are blown all to hell. She finds herself in bed with the smoldering stranger from a party six months back and immediately knows she's in trouble, big trouble. And the last thing Hannah needs is more trouble.
Her last relationship took her out like an emotional freight train, and she's trying to piece back the stability her life once had.
Greyson Holt's biggest fear in life is to end up like his father, like the man who left him as a child, and broke his mother's heart. He vowed to never be responsible for that kind of carnage. Men could be cruel and that kind of brutality was in his blood. He never allows himself to get too close to anyone, until he meets Hannah.
Something about her makes him want to try, but a man can't change overnight.
Will Holt be able to catch Rhodes every time he lets her go? Or will their chase end in heartbreak?
I for one thought the characters were too cheesy towards each other, the beginning gets you but I couldn't even finish it. I would say you could skip it, and I won't be looking into the other ones either. I wish I could say I loved this book but unfortunately that wasn't the case.
This is my second time reading this book and it was just as good as the first! Some of the things Hannah was thinking or said out loud made me laugh out. Greyson is easy to fall in love with too!
Heartwarming and a lot of potential
I know I am being a little harsh. This is the first book I have read by this author and I am excited about how much she can grow. I love her writing style and she has the ability to capture your readers. So why so little stars? First, there are a bunch of grammatical errors, but I must note that the version I received originally was through a giveaway and not from iBooks. I do not know if the current version fixes those problems. Second, she does it mostly from Hannah's point of view and rarely from Greyson's point of view. I feel that if she was even going to add Greyson's point of view, then perhaps do so throughout the book, not when she wants to show how sorry Greyson is because she did not do so when the couple makes up. Third, I find that the book moved too fast, which left out a lot of details, which makes it hard to believe the story, The couple fell in love super fast that it kind of left holes in the story. The conflict seemed to only last seconds and the resolution was only subpar. SPOILER ALERT: Greyson is "broken" because his father left his mother heartbroken. She turned to drinking and pills and eventually dies. This should be pretty emotional stuff... But it is hard to feel with the few paragraphs the author dedicates to this revelation. Then you later meet Greyson's father, who is a drunken jackass. But this is the first time you learn about his personality and that he used to beat Greyson. Again, that should be pretty heavy stuff... But only lasts a few pages, if that. Lastly, after Hannah returns, she and Greyson make up super fast... Like they kiss and bam, everything is fine. But, what about her concerns that when sh*t hits the fan, he won't bail? That is something I would really want to know first before committing to live with him.
The author has a lot of potential. For a free book, I would recommend it. I hope to read more of her books, but I would like to sample more of her writing before committing to purchase.
