I should have known this would happen…
Nothing about my fraternity was ever simple. Parties, tequila – tons of tequila – and wild souvenirs from our kind of crazy.
Never, and I do mean never, did I expect my brother’s girl to target me in a midnight prank. A prank that backfired and left me squealing in pain.
Have you ever seen those shows, the ones that say the “dirty deed” sent you to the ER? Well, I went to the ER, and yes, my manhood was involved. Let me just say I gained absolutely no pleasure from it. Unless, of course, you consider that sweet nurse who treated me.
The problem? She hated me…and I had no idea why, but I wasn’t willing to let her walk away until I figured it out.
Emelie was feisty, and I’d never felt the type of excitement I did after spending only five seconds in her line of fire. I was gonna enjoy this…way more than I should, and I knew it.
She saw, she conquered, and I was defeated.
All it took was just one touch, and oh, what a ride it was.
My Review: 4 stars
What a sweet story. This story has a bit of insta-love in it and that is not usually my kind of read. But this book is just so sweet, that I can handle the insta-love.
Clayton and Emelie don’t start out on the right foot. Emelie automatically dismisses Clayton because she believes he is a player. He is a frat-boy and she believes they are all the same.
Clayton is attracted to Emelie from the moment he sees her. When she dismisses him, he takes that as a challenge.
Clayton doesn’t give up on Emelie and when a run in happens at the laundry mat, everything changes.
Emelie has secrets. Emelie has trust issues. Emelie has a hard life.
Clayton wants to do whatever he can for Emelie but he know she won’t take the help without a fight.
Mainly, Clayton wants to love Emelie and he hopes she will love him back.
But can Emelie love someone after everything she has been through? How can she trust someone when everyone else in her life, besides her best-friend, has let her down?
This is a really sweet story. Clayton and Emelie’s story make my heart smile. I usually read books that are darker but this is just the kind of read I needed this weekend.
