If you don't give your heart away, you can't get it broken.

When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers across the country to Garrison University, the last thing she's looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately that's exactly what gorgeous Cruise Elton offers. Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion, and Cruise couldn't agree more, but somethi...more

I don't actually plan on doing a review for this one, but since I'm bored...

Here goes... (I'll just keep it short)

The preface/prologue for this book was so damn good, I was like: HOLY SHIT! I can already sense that this is going to be a great read. But, as the story went on, I lost interest.

I got bored and skipped a lot of parts. I just read the MC's convos (which are also too cheesy for my taste, it makes me want to barf.)

But still, I tell myself to finish reading it 'cause maybe the ending's...more
Overall this was a very long and disappointing read for me. I found the writing choppy and at times hard to follow. Too many unnecessary and wordy comparisons bog down this story rather than enrich it. The characters lacked depth and came across more cliche than real. Finally the storyline was absurd. So many ridiculous things happened that the end result was more comical than anything else. I'm sorry I honestly don't like to give bad reviews and have only given a handful to date. Having said th...more

This is a BAD BOOK. No seriously, it's so bad. Do not spend the money. I got through 10 pages and that is ONLY because the writing is so colossally bad that I wanted to copy lines to send to my friends for a laugh. SO BAD.
Here is the very first sentence for your enjoyment: "It was that season in my life, the coming of age of the woman inside me who longed to know the secrets of the universe - those potent with lust and desire - the very thing that harnessed a sexual frenzy and drove humanity al...more
I really wanted to like this book. The beginning was so promising that I thought that it could be the next Wallbanger. Unfortunately, this did not happen.

My major problem with Someone To Love was Cruise's voice. It did not sound like a guy's POV to me. While Kendall was bouncing between entertaining and sometimes annoying, Cruise just sounded like a girl. When I read chapters written from his POV, I couldn't believe it's a guy's voice. Or well, I must be used to the macho guys too much :-)

Dnf about 20% into the book.

I just couldn't keep reading. The heroine is a hormonal mess of lust, she gets into the car with a complete stranger, stays at his place and after one glance she's already dreaming HEAs. God save me from half-witted idiots.

The hero is another hormonal mess to match the heroine, he invites an unknown girl to stay with him after knowing her for two hours(and I don't mean sleep, I mean that he invites her to stay at his place), and he already dreams of her as pregnant an...more

Just a 3 star read for me but:

This is my first Addison Moore read and I have to say, I kept getting distracted by thoughts of which genre her writing style would fit best. Because holy hells this woman can write, but it felt like an awkward fit for this kind of story. When she wants to be evocative and poetic she pulls it off really well and when she wants to be light-hearted and funny, she doesn't end up trying, she WILL make stuff come out of your nose.

It boggles my simpleton brain how this co...more

After getting his heartbroken, Cruise starts to play the field. He has developed quite a reputation. He meets Kendall at a party. She is new to school and he feels a spark right away. She does too. Neither want to admit it. Kendall’s mom has been married and divorced more than she can count. She’s not sure if she believes in love at all. Cruise thought he was in love once, but a cheating ex-girlfriend changed that. Kendall decides she wants to be a ‘player’ like Cruise. She just needs a...more
Really struggled with this book, it's rare I don't finish a book but sadly this was one of those. Loved the idea of the book but found the style of writing and over embellishment and grammar/editing problems got tiresome and I ended up skimming. When that happens I DNF.
So 1* for the cover and 1 for the idea of the book. Could have been brilliant.
DNF at 15%

The characters were unrealistic, with barely any character development. I really don't know why they were involved with each other. Their relationship was just bizarre.

And the overuse of adjectives drove me nuts. Everything was so descriptive that it became difficult to follow the storyline. And the adjectives used didn't make sense. For example, "he drinks me in with a fondling gaze, undressing me with those blue cellophane eyes." WTF is a fondling gaze and why would you describe blue...more
This book is alright, definitely categorized as a light, beach read. I felt like there wasn't much character development. The entire book was just about sex, sex, and sex. That's all Kendall and Cruise ever thought about. Such a simple story. Cruise fell in love with Kendall so quickly, I don't even know why really. He kept saying how she was so different from Blair, but really, how did you know? I just didn't fall in love with the characters. Even though it's written in both POV, I just didn't...more
Vikki ~ *squee* lite ~
This one was kind of a mixed bag for me. There was a lot that I liked. At times, it heartwarming and even swoony. Cruise was sexy as hell, and for a "player" he turned out to be a big 'ol ball of romantic marshmallow sweetness.

Kendall had some truly funny lines, and had a sarcastic inner dialogue that left me smiling.

"Sorry, cowboy, I'm not into one-night stands either. I get it. I really do," I say, trying to maneuver my way from under him. "You're on a road show with your penis, and trust m...more
I like romance novels to begin with, but this isn't the usual romance novel I usually read. I like the characters in the book. However the girl in the story (Kendall/Kenny)bugs me sometimes. The author does a good job at representing her age due to her personality and actions (i.e. dramatic, makes a lot of assumptions, "my world is ending") All of these traits accurately represent a 20 year old girl. But the character gets on my nerves with all of her assumptions!
There is a very subtle mentionin...more

I finish. I finish! Round of applause please for my courage to force myself through this book.


Do not even bother to read this book. Seriously. I think something's wrong with me.. I didn't read the blurb and this is what I get! (I am that stressed at school lol) This book can cause your eyes to hurt from rolling them so much. This also could result in intense migraines.

Wrong things about this book:

1. The first meeting, emphasis on first, the girl went home with the guy she barely...more
First I want to say I loved this book, however I want more. It so easily could have been turned into a trilogy and I'm kind of sad it wasn't. At the very least there should have been an epilogue!!!! Still a great heart warming read that was very funny.
My guilty pleasure are simple sweet love stories with good girls and bad boys (who are secretly good boys who are more afraid to be hurt) - this book is just that. Add to that a younger hilarity that at the forefront of Wallbanger - this book had me smiling, laughing and yes, at times screaming at them to fucking just talk to each other.

The only thing I did not like is that none of the characters held conversations. Ally and Lauren could have told Kenny who Blair was. Kenny could have told Cruis...more

What's not to like about this sweet sweet book about falling in love and finding your soul mate. At times the author was almost poetic with her writing, the storyline and plot were predictable but pleasant and easy to read, packed with plenty of heartwarming scenes.
An easy 3.5 stars.
I liked this story how it was told from alternating points of view. Loved getting a look inside the guys head for once I think it should be done more often.

****MAJOR SPOILERS*****stop reading if you don't want to read any spoilers

One of the things I can say I didn't like was the way these two 'in love' people never once really communicated which of course was a plot device but seriously how can you love someone want to marry them and never have really told them much about yourself. Almost every...more
First off that cover has me drooling! It's so hot and heavy and so suited to this book. I cannot think of a cover more perfect to represent 'Someone to Love'

Ok so I bought this book a little under 2 hours ago and I have already finished it.

This book was a little at times boring. However it is all about 2 people's first love and of course that means that their going to be a little obsessive about each other and of course inseparable.

The heroine- Kenny did get a little annoying. She only had a o...more
I love these types stories. I was excited to read this cute contemporary romance.
I liked Kendall (some of her lines at the beginning made me laugh) and I liked Cruise (he was just a good person) and I liked the premise of the story (I seek out these types of stories in YA books). However, somewhere at 65%, it lost me. I can’t put my finger on it. Cruise has some history with an ex-girlfriend that comes back to stir some trouble, but that part did not bother me. I am reader who likes when an ex c...more
I was extremly shocked when i saw all of this reviews, and my opinion was so different .-. I mean im a pretty easy pleaser but i guess this one wasn't my type..
Okay, the story starts with a virgin who after 0.3 nanoseconds of meeting a manwhore , moves in with him due to lack of having somewhere to stay because he gave over the responsibility to a person she knows nothing about , then our brilliant main character decides to change all she believes in and become a whore to match his personality....more

I quit. After about 40% of the book, I just couldn't do it anymore. The writing was over the top fanciful and the analogies were just driving me crazy. I didn't connect with either character and I expected a bit more angst from both characters given that neither believes in love.

I enjoyed the first several books in Ms. Moore's other series (although towards the end of that series I had to hang it up as well).

There was just something off with this book. The characters didn't feel like they conn...more

Arrrggghh this is driving me crazy! I can't get it through Kindle UK and Nook. I might have to go by Smashwords on this one. :(

Finally bought a copy of this one from the Kindle store. What an emotional roller coaster though but i loved it!!!

Full review tomorrow :)

I rounded up because the beginning was hilarious.

When one of the first lines uttered by a main character is "You're on a road show with your penis, and trust me, I'm the last person who wants to get in your way. But I'm telling you, operation occupy-my-vagina is a no-go for the evening.", you have to continue just for the laughs.

So, Someone to Love. Basically, a girl transfers colleges and on her first day there meets resident playboy. Hijinks ensue and they end up falling for each other - sh...more

I have to start this off saying that I really liked this book because offcourse Cruise is Another smoking HOTTT guy!!!!

Kendall moves to go to university and is supposed to get a dorm room which is set up by her friend Paddington but when the plans fall through and she realizes she is stranded with no accomodation or money. She meets Cruise and starts talking to him and he offers her a place to stay till she sorts her living arrangement out.

Cruise is sexy and the ultimate man whore! he sleeps wit...more

This turned out to be completely different from what I thought it would be! Seriously, when I read the first couple of pages I said to my friend it's smut.

I mean, it felt like it from the prologue! Well, it's not. Yeah, there's a lot of sex of all kinds, but it's a really sweet story about two people falling in love.
Something amazing is happening — something meaningful and real.

First I want to say that this was beautiful writing - I was drinking up every sentence. Absolutely beautiful. I haven'...more

LOVED this book!!! I've had this book in my Kindle for a long while and finally got a chance to reading it. The wait was well worth it but now I'm sad because I didn't want Kenny & Cruise's story to end. Please let there be a sequel, hint, hint!!! This book was surprisingly funny. I loved Kendall. Loved, loved, loved her humor and snark. And Cruise... helloo... his name is already swoon-worthy!!! I wish there was more, there's so much to their story that can be continued, again, I just wish...more
Anne OK
A really fun-to-read contemporary. The interaction between Cruise and Kenny was a great mixture of emotions. Their chemistry was sizzling and the slow-build to the rewards was very well written. Lots of witty banter that always hooks me as well. This one had a touch of "a little different" in its storyline making it just that much better.
Kristin (Better Read Than Dead)
This is a New Adult book and contains sexual content and strong language. Recommended for mature readers.

Three words: Hot, Freaking-Funny, and YUMMY! I mean, just look at that cover. The moment my eyes perused that art, I new I had to read this book, and man, am I ever glad I did! Although, I did get kicked out of my bedroom because I kept giggling while my husband was trying to sleep. o_O

So, Kendall Johnson has moved from the warm coast of California to Garrison University into freezing tempera...more
