Someone to Love (Someone to Love #1)
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
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
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
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 :-)
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
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
So 1* for the cover and 1 for the idea of the book. Could have been brilliant.
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
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
There is a very subtle mentionin...more
I felt like I was reading the same thing i have in other books .
Hero finding heroine different and taking a liking to her within minutes of meeting her.......obviously check
Hero leaving his player days behind.......check
Misunderstandings leading to breakup.......check
Clearing up of the misunderstanding leading to HEA......check
Very predictable from the beginning....check, check, ch
Ugh. UGH. UGGGH.
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
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
An easy 3.5 stars.
****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
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 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
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 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
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

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
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
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
