TOTAL COVER WHORE ALERT! The urge is directly connected to my one click trigger finger!

The last time this happened it was
" Losing Me, Finding You " ..... Lets hope this is NOT the same level of Epic Shittiness/FAIL !!!

Victoria Anderson is an outcast with an odd fascination with birds. What she wants more than anything is to be seen and heard.

Sterling Bentley wants the opposite. He wants to disappear; fade away into the blackness that has enveloped his life. In the midst of the struggle of h

Falling for a Bentley was a big surprise. I thought it was just going to be about a good girl falling for a bad boy type of love story, and it was, but it was also like nothing I have read before. It is very different from the YA books that I have read. It just seemed more realistic. It’s a very sad, overwhelming, intense, heartbreaking book. The story deals with quite a bit of heavy issues and I thought they were all handled really well. I guess it’s always easier for people who have gone thr ...more

Hellooo gorgeous (winks) yes I'm talking about the cover I mean doesn't he remind you of anyone from a certain bookie? (coughtravismaddoxcough) One thing I didn't like right off the bat was how tiny the wording is on my kindle I mean I have good eyes but damn! But then a friend told me how to fix it so I was cool. Jonah is such a sweetheart, "Tori, lost of people are afraid of heights," Jonah replies. "It's no big deal." Colton I'm not sure I like him he's such a damn tool, "my parents died in s ...more

I'll start this off saying i read at least 4 to 5 books a week and NO story line scares me. This was the first book for me about drug addiction. With that being said I've read books about drug addicts but I actually LIVED it through this book! It was absolutely heart breaking for the characters and myself. I was on an emotional roller coaster the whole time. You have to read "Falling for a Bentley" it was amazingly beautiful!!! This was my first from this author but won't be my last :)

Victoria (Tori)is dating a d-bag named Colton Bentley, one day his parents die & his cousins from out of town show up,introducing Sterling Bentley. He's rough, dark, rude, crude & HOT ! ! Tori is instantly drawn to him, although she is cautious about him. Tori's mom is a evil-bitch-spawn from the 7th circle of hell & alienates her daughter. Her father is an amazing loving man, made me wonder the entire book why the heck he was with his wife....Anyhow one day after a drunken stupor at ...more

Oh why oh why did I read this book?!?!?!? Technically, I "had" to skim around. I just COULD NOT read all this. I know this book is about addictions & all, & it's suppose to show the "dark" & "ugly" side of addictions , but come on? That doesn't mean we should have to tolerate a week, spineless, & pathetic h. This H's "sins" made him a "NO WAY, AIN'T EVER GOING TO HAPPEN" redeemable character. & the idea that this h would have ANYTHING to do w/this unremorseful H is just too i ...more

Total cover whore and it was free. But the cover hot damn he is freaking scorching hot.

So this book was intense. But not good enough to keep me from skim reading. I kind of got lost with all the POV jumping. I got confused and had to go back a few times.

Sterling was a jackass. A scorching hot, totally f*ckedup jackass. He had some redeeming qualities, but damn does it take a strong women to stay with him.

Tori was hmmmm drawing a blank. She wasn't very memorable. Kind of a push over. But she di

Let me start off by saying I'm at a loss for words. This book was really a great read. I tend to get drawn first to a book by the cover and let me say I love this cover. Lately I've been a total book worm but sometimes the books start becoming very similar and this book was a breath of fresh air, finally something really different, realistic. It also kept me on my toes never giving away the ending. I love books that truelly pull you in and warm your heart. I don't cry in many books and this I ne ...more

Sterling and Tori have a different relationship.
This book covers heavy drug use and Men being pigs.
Your going to want to punch some Bentley's in the face several times though out the book.
Wonderful Read

FALLING FOR A BENTLEY had a lot of promise; unfortunately, it didn’t quite realize its potential - not even close. There were numerous typos; and it simply, had sloppy editing. I found at times that the author was truly able to portray the subject matter in a raw and realistic way, but for the most part, it was as if I was stuck in either a Narcotics or Alcoholics Anonymous meeting while being subjected to the same old regurgitated rhetoric.

I could definitely be wrong, but I got the impression

Why I read this book? YES!!! Because of the damn cover!!! Love it!!!

Well, this started out good. But....a few chapters in and I was kinda confused. Wait!!! Tori (the goody good girl) has a boyfriend Colton Bentley (the douchebag) (I had to mention his last name you would see the significance later on) who likes her cousin Keira (the school slut/popular/hot girl) who has a secret crush on Jonah (the school pariah) who has a secret crush on Tori who in return has a secret crush on Jonah.

Reading the summary for this book did not prepare me for what I was to endure reading it. I love stories that have happy endings and I wasn't sure if this one would. The story is very centered around drugs and having never touched/read about drugs, I was shocked. It was a good book but it also managed to tear my heart into tiny pieces and stomp them into the ground. This book was very emotional for me. I warn anyone looking for just a regular romance to not read this but if you think you can han ...more

From the start this book was different from anything I've recently read. For example, three (3)...yes 3 POVs in the first few chapters. I found myself intrigued by getting the different perspectives. At times I was confused but the POVs helped to understand the history of how they all related.

Victoria is a senior in high school on the cusp of several milestones. She is dealing with fractured relationships, self image issues, and the pain of

So let me begin by saying that while I will attempt to write this review with as few spoilers as I can manage, there are plot points which I will need to reveal in order to be fair in my review. Not revealing them will make this review stilted and I'd like to be as thorough as possible as I believe this author has a great deal of potential. Those who know me know I would not bother to write this sort of review if I felt otherwise.

All right, now that that's out of the way. I really wanted to give

This book is way different than anything I've read and I must say it is one of my favorites. It was so easy to get drawn into the story and the characters and I found it hard to put this book down. I couldn't get enough of Sterling. He had some deep issues that broke my heart, but it was so hard not to fall for him. I felt his pain along with Tori's. The things she had to witness in this book would've broken a lot of people down, but she held her own and stayed strong. This book had me on the ed ...more

So many emotions after reading this book. Before I go any farther I only gave this book 4 stars because I think the extra POV's in the book were too much in the beginning and confused the hell out of me. On to the story, Amazing Read I think I loved the fact that the author talked to the reader and really went in depth with some deep subjects. There are so many things I would like to touch on but, I cannot due to the fact that there is little I can say about the story without giving out spoilers ...more

The story is about Victoria who is a bird lover and also is always controlled by her mother. The shock wave in her boyfriend life made her finally want to throw all worry and the good girl vibes and to start anew with her boyfriend hot cousin Sterling. Sterling is also damaged goods but will Victoria and Sterling be able to find light in the darkness surrounding them??

There is nothing worse than being shown who you love is not who you think they are. Instead, they are the evil twin of your beloved.”

Esta leitura pode ser confundida com qualquer drama da vida real. Não é uma história de amor rendodinha, não é um drama familiar que se resolve em todas as suas nuances.

Terminei o livro com uma sensação de que a angústia produzida foi levemente aplacada, mas não completamente suprimida.

Cover love can get me into so much trouble. This is an example. Thank God it was free. I think the author was going for a YA/NA Inspirational element that just came off wonky to me. Definitely not my cuppa'.

A strange one you may like. I certainly didn't -- at all.

Colton is such a jerk, and treats Tori like crap.
Then he tries to make a pass on her cousin, and she also finds out that he has been messing around with others as well. Tori is a naive girl and doesn't even call him on that shit!
Tori meets Colton's cousin, Sterling-a rebel to his family. She gets caught up with Sterling and goes through a whirlwind of emotions with him. At the end, its a cute story, but wished Tori and Sterling had more to add to the book.

this is one of the first free books that actually kept me wanting to turn the page. this is a story about a girl trying to save an addict that she falls in love with. it was a rough dirty read and I found myself in her place. not that I've dealt with loving an addict before but Adriana does a great job with her writing making you think you are standing there witnessing their love one going thru th lowest of lows. job well done.

Heartbreaking love story.

She is a girl who has not lived since her accident, she just exists. Makes her mother happy with a shallow relationship and spends her time carving birds statues, until she meets sterling.

He is a bad boy just as you would imagine him, tattoos, muscles everywhere and a bad attitude, but not with her.

They seem to discover each other seeing themselves on a different light.

She finally starts to do what she wants, and enjoys life like she never has before, but his demons are
