Well it was going, fine. I didn't love it or hate it. It was ok and interesting, easy. And then it changed. Respecting the author's wish, i will not reveal too much but i 'll state one thing. THERE IS A TWIST. Not suited for everyone's likes.

Maybe, you 'll like it, maybe you won't. It's a very thin line between what it's right and what it's not, of course as a romantic at heart a can see some validation behind their choises, but considering the way things went i would prefer a tragic ending.

My review today is something that kind of stopped me I don't know from what but I just came to a pause .

In that moment the world was set straight and we began the story starts with a boy-man called tade and basically.

He's at st.marys college,his dad is a senator and all in all he's trying to keep a low profile with his best mate all this process tade and Gavin chose the whole "I'm not looking for a relationship and I don't do girlfriends"which as much as it sounds like a cliché.

This is a hard one to rate. I was enjoying this until the big twist...then I really wasn't liking it one bit so it's a 2.5 star to reflect the 3-4 star beginning and the 1 star ending.

I was attracted to this when I saw it was about a senator's son forced to keep his true identity secret from his classmates in a bid to protect his father's reputation. I was hoping for a forbidden/secret love story I suppose.

It started well as a typical 'commitment-phobe reforms his man-whoring ways when he meets

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This was one of those books that's kind of hard to rate and review for me. Tade as the son of a senator, he keeps his nose clean, his conquest quiet, and an eye on his goals until he meets her Reagan. This book started out kind of slow and I would have liked it if it was more erotic, with that being said I really liked this book and it kept me wanting more.

This book had my emotions twisted in a good way, I think. It was slow to start, but as it developed, I really enjoyed the story and chemistry between the two main characters. Until the twist happened. Then I didn't know how I felt. I knew how I was suppose to feel, but that's not what I was feeling. You'll understand more once you read the book. I enjoy a book that brings out emotions in me, that makes me feel what's going on and this book did that for me. All I can say is "the heart wants what ...more

Wow! That went in a completely unexpected direction, and as weird as it might make me seem, I liked it! This was absolutely unique, original and unlike anything I have EVER read before, and I LOVED the writing. The story is great, it has a great pace, the characters are amazing with each of them having their own drama and problems (I want to read Penelope and Gavin's story!!)and the twist is epic!

After reading "Sins of the father" I'm feeling confused.
The writing was okay but sometimes it wasn't very smooth. I loved that the story was told from a male POV.
I had some trouble with the plot. In the beginning I didn't know where the journey would take me... "Boy, who doesn't do relationship, falls in love with super nice girl." But after a while I liked it... but then...

I like to think that I am an open person but the plot twist shocked

This is a great read. I was blown away and didn't see that coming! I think I went through all emotions while reading this. I can't wait to read more from this author. I really like the plot and there is so much chemistry between this young couple.

Believe me when I say that I didn't mind the twist as much as I felt that this was all over the place; on many levels.

It's just.. this was not for me.

ARR #61 given by the author via GR's Fifty Shades Support Group, in exchange of honest review.

“Why do you care what my name is? You’ve never noticed me before.”

A contemporary romance. Uphigh family. Senator son. Erotic descriptive smut scene. Prosecutor-to-be sailor. British-accented American. Virgin. Driving BJ. Open-air rowboat lake sex. Breath play. Twisted situation.

Red has an attitude, self respecting.
Tade also has an attitude. He is not swooned the few first time seeing Red

I received a copy via FSSG for an unbiased and honest review.

For me this romance between Tade, the son of a US Senator that has to fly under the radar, and Red aka Biscuit aka Reagan started with real promise. Tade's in college and has left a string of one night stands in his wake, all the while being mindful that they knew the score up front so as not to harm his fathers candidacy if he runs for President in the future. I found him a likeable character, likeable, not loveable. The same went for

ARC provided for an honest review. This is another book I'm having a hard time rating. First, no offense but I hate the cover. When I first saw it I immediately fell into the whole "don't judge a book my it's cover" motto. I'll start with the blurb and go onto my thoughts about this book.

The story is Told from the male POV.

So, this story starts of with Tade, the lead male and his friend Gavin, pussy hunting in a bar. Tade's eye is caught from across the room by a red headed beauty wearing cherry red lipstick, and although she glances his way, she doesn't pay much attention. After asking her for a dance and her not showing any interest, Tade's goes on his way. Then he sees her again at a party. And still she's not interested. Eventually though she does succumb (funnily enough as

I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I have actually postponed writing this review as I was trying to sort out what my thoughts were regarding it…I think the book had great potential. Let’s start with what I did like about the book: the story was told from a Male POV which is always refreshing to read and the story was not your typical love story.

The twist left me feeling dumbfounded and I’m sure that was the intention of the author. I think with the right execution, I would have been able

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. The story has a fantastic premise, and most of the book was very well written. However, it stills needs some editing on spelling, sentence sintaxis, etc. There were some parts that were tedious and somewhat repetitive, but it kept my interest. The only problem was at the beginning, it was a little boring and it seemed to be going nowhere. I liked that Tade was not a rebellious son of a Senator, merely a young man determined to live his life on ...more

Unexpected, jarring, romantic, thought-provoking … you will get all of that with this story. Echo White takes us into Tade's world, his dad is a Senator so he has to live a "clean" life and stay out of the press. He has developed a one-night stand policy but then he sees Red (aka Reagan) and his world shifts. Reagan has Tade's number, she has seen his many conquests and he has never noticed her but all the sudden Tade is everywhere she is. Can Tade show her there is more to him than the ...more

ARC received from author for an honest review.

This was just okay for me. The flow of the story was hurried to me, and didn't develop the characters well.

This story is about a rich kid, Tade, whose father is a politician and he keeps a low profile because of that. I guess because he wants people to accept him for himself and not use him. Also so that nothing negative damages his father's reputation. He meets Reagan, or Biscuit, the nickname he gives this girl at the college he attends, that he j

I received an ARC for an honest review.

The beginning of the book was captivating. I was immediately drawn in by the author's descriptive writing style. The story of Tade and Reagan was so interesting in the beginning. Tade, son of a senator, was attending a smaller college to keep a low profile. No strings relationships were his choice to keep girls and life less complicated. He sees Reagan has to have her but she's the one girl that doesn't make it easy. He makes an effort and tries a different

I finished this book two days ago and I wanted to let myself marinate on it for a while before writing my review. The story of Tade and Reagan was just okay for me. The writing was decent and the story flowed well. I do wish I had more information about why Tade never noticed Reagan before. I was hoping that maybe she underwent some sort of major transformation over their years at school. Anyhow, I was hooked after a few chapters and wanted to see where

After reading Sins of the father I was left feeling very confused. I was really enjoying the book and the blurb really caught my eye. I thought I was in for a great story. It started off great, but then by the end I was left completely confused and just having no idea what the heck happened.
The story was fast paced and the characters were good and easy to connect too. The story was very unique, esp nearer the ending.
There was however a lot of spelling and grammar errors throughout.

3.75 stars

We meet Tade Astor, who is in his last year of college and will be continuing on to become a lawyer. Tade doesn't do relationships. Every woman he's been with he's told them straight on, what he expects. It's not until he is out with his best friend Gavin, that he sees a woman that catches his eye. Everything he believes in gets thrown out the door when he meets Reagan Abby.

I thought the book was good. There were some thing

I really enjoyed the story, until the end. The ending was shocking but overall, love makes you do crazy things.

A senator's son, falling for a girl that he shouldn't will shake your soul and leaving you thinking; "What just happened."

It will leave you questioning what you just read and if its something that is even possible, is it even real but we all know the answers. It crosses some barriers but the story up to the twist will capture you and leave y

This book is totally unique, unlike anything else I've ever read. It tore through all of my emotions. It's an impossible love story with intensely strong emotions.

This book was given to me for an honest review by the author.
I will start out by saying this is not your typical love story. So if you want the typical love story this book is not for you. Now to me, I loved this book. It had several twists and things happened that I never would have thought were going to happen. This kept the story interesting. There were times my emotions were mixed but it kept me interested in the story. This story was different but I like different!

It was hard to rate this book. It certainly had great potential and reading the blurb, I had expected a better story. The writing style was okay for me, I loved the characters. They could have been better developped, though.
The ending came as a total surprise that really left me feeling confused.
All in all, this was just an okay read for me.

Received ARC for review...I was very interested in the story at first and really liked the male POV. But as the story continued I didn't feel the connection between them that much. Since we don't know what is going through her mind, some of her actions were totally a surprise, but not in a good way. Im still not sure if Im happy with the ending of this book. I believe it had more potential. Thanks anyway for the opportunity.

Wow. I absolutely love every bit of this book. Wish I understood Gavin and Penelope relationship. But Tade and Reagan was amazing. I liked how they met and he knew her as red and she never told her his name so he called her biscuit. This story still has my heart beating and in tears. Tade never wanted a girlfriend. He was only into one night stands. Reagan wanted a boyfriend. A complicated relationship but love is the only thing that keeps you going. Thank you for the amazing read.
