DO NOT READ THE SPOILERS IN HERE UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THIS BOOK!
AND FAIR WARNING I'M ABOUT SWEAR LIKE A SAILOR AS I NEED TO GET IT OUT!

Umm.. so...eeehh....*deep breath innnnn and release*

OK Ok... where the FUCK DO I START!

This is the story of Jack Fucking Carter and Cassie "Kitten" Andrews.

Cassie is new to the college, so when she catches the eye of the infamous bad boy manwhore superstar baseball pitcher Jack, her best friend Melissa warns her about him. He never sleeps with the same girl twice. Everyone knows this, including the girls he sleeps with.

Jack can't believe that Cassie doesn’t want him. He has given her his best smiles, pulled the dimples out, used all the right lines... Why doesn't she want him?!
He eventually breaks her down and gets her to go out with him, just one date.

That one date is the start of everything

"“This doesn't change anything," I stammered, my defences fading.

"It changes everything." He sounded so sure of himself as his soft lips silenced my weak protest.”


Jack has never had a real relationship, he has had a shit background that has lead him to have abandonment issues. Hence the manwhore thing. Don't let them close they can't hurt you right?

I've love you. I'm sure I'll fuck it up because I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Just promise me that you'll be patient with me.--Jack

Cassie has trust issues, her whole life her father has let her down with broken promises, because of this she is very guarded. She falls for Jack and gives him 4 rules to live by

#1-Don't lie.
#2-Don't cheat.
#3-Don't make promises you can't keep.
#4-Don't say things you don't mean.


Things go gloriously as we watch the relationship progress between the H/h, reading from both POV's.
Jack is drafted to Arizona for Baseball and Cassie receives an internship for her photography. They do the long distance thing both falling harder, and faster. Think Romeo and Juliet type love!

Then Jack fucks up.
I mean seriously
FUCKS UP!
That scene is in his POV and you are reading it,
knowing what is going to happen,
dreading that is going to happen,
and screaming at him when it does.
(view spoiler)

I shit you not! I was screaming at him and clutching at my chest as not only does Cassie world break mine did as well.
I am was sobbing uncontrollably, I was broken. I just felt like complete and utter shit!

Photobucket


AND THEN IF ONE BOMB ISN'T BAD ENOUGH!!
ANOTHER IS DROPPED.....
AND THEN ONE FUCKING MORE!!


(view spoiler)

Which one of Cassie's rules did Jack break?
You will have to read it to find out....

I do need to point out that we do get a wonderful HEA!!

but if this book did not have Jack POV I'm being 100% honest and said that I would of hated this book and hated Jack!

..................................

OMG... the things this book made me feel! GAH i can't explain it..

You want a rollercoaster of EVERY SINGLE FUCKING EMOTION YOU CAN HAVE???
LOOK NO FURTHER!

KatLynne Fabulous review Kellie!


Kellie is a bookwhoreasaurus Thank you ladies! ^_^


Lindsay I agree with you, Jack's POV made all the difference. Even in Cassie's POV (in the beginning) I liked Jack, but after the incident, if not for Jack's POV, I would have hated him.

Great review Kellie. :)
