Ronnie is more than just the football coach's daughter, and Gibson is more than just a rock star's son,Here's an Alabama hometown high school romance.
Ronnie is more than just the football coach's daughter, and Gibson is more than just a rock star's son, and they are the only two people who seem to see that in each other. I love how he gives her a feeling of being wanted that her family never provided, and she helps him discover what he really desires most out of life. So sweet.
Ronnie, the heroine, is the ultimate country girl! Down to earth, pretty, and rules in beer pong. I like her!
I really loved the references to Deamon from JLA's Lux series, and how Gibson pokes Ronnie in the back with a pen when he's sitting behind her in class...just like Daemon did to Katy!
It was cute when suave, bad-boy ladies-man Gibson gets awkward as he asks Ronnie out on their first date. Loved that it was both their first real date!
I Love, Allen!! He's the comic relief = "My homie Katy was wrong. I kissed a girl, and I sure as hell didn’t like it!” And he has awesome taste in hot guys. #FellowJensenAcklesLoverHere! Shout out!
River's awesome too. Maybe I'm just a lover of best friends!
Rodger is a douche. Period.
I want to learn more about Sean. He's the overprotective twin brother (but a good brother) except he's possibly a cheater (though, eek, I hope that story is not as it seems). I definitely want to know more about him with Anna. That's why I was happy to see book three is his!! #Yay
Since Gibson was so famous, I was certain some media people would flag him down to the small town he was staying in all on their own, especially since it was no secret to everyone there who he was and that he was sent there in place of going to jail. Some fellow student HAD to have mentioned it on some social media place that he was attending their school and spread it around. But I guess that story would've been totally different if it had leaked sooner.
At the beginning, I could tell it was a debut book. I think editors have ruined me, making me notice things about writing that I probably never would've noticed before they got hold of my head! But as the story progressed, and things started rolling (like the secret relationship!! Sorry, I'm a sucker for secret relationship!! Adore them!), the writing improved, and I got way more into the story.
Overall, good, happy tale with a good happy ending! Thumbs up! :)...more
I hate Abby! I mean...this woman! She’s funny. She’s adorable. She’s compassionate. She’s smart yet quirky and lovable. She’s accepting of all peoplesI hate Abby! I mean...this woman! She’s funny. She’s adorable. She’s compassionate. She’s smart yet quirky and lovable. She’s accepting of all peoples. She’d doesn’t take any crap from anyone. She stands up for herself while she isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. She’s an awesome employee. She says just the right thing when someone is worried about her reaction. She whips out the best, wittiest one-liners ever. She loves with her whole heart. She can turn the coldest, neat-freak boss into a warm smiling, loveable guy. And the real kicker...she gets to be in a freaking hot Sam/Lawson LOVE SANDWICH. I want to BE her, or be her best friend, or just...both. So on all counts of jealous-bitch girl code, I must hate her, right? Right.
So yeah, Abby Warner is probably one of my favorite book heroines of all time, and she’s perfect for Lawson Stone, the ice-cold prince of filming adult movies. The whole porn might make it sound a little tawdry but it’s actually a classy, sweet, funny—while incredibly hot—story. Lawson keeps it incredibly clean-cut, and I mean that literally. If a germ ever dared touch his person or his business, it no doubt shriveled away long ago, apologizing as it fled, after a single dark glare from Mr. Stone himself.
And then Abby steps into his world and all the perfectly-ordered precision in his life goes to hell in a handbasket. If you like opposites attract stories, this is it in spades! She helps the ice-man thaw. And he makes the lonely orphan feel loved. They are exactly what each other need.
While Lawson was amazing and totally meant for Abby, I grew a big ol fat crush on his best friend, Sam. I mean...SAM! You’ll understand when you meet him. He’s just so...Sam!
Anyway, I really, really REALLY enjoyed this book. I mean, more than I thought was possible. It’s a lot hotter than Ada’s earlier stories and may not contain some of the heart-breaking, soul-crushing moments she’s been so awesome for creating previously (if you’re into those). But this was meant to be a bit more on the lighter, brighter, happier, hotter side of things and it delivered all that amazingly well, while still providing enough depth to make it so worth the price of admission. I would classify it under contemporary erotic romance with a breathtakingly happily-ever-after ending.
