I just finished the book and I'm irritated. May not be the best time to write the review, but I'm too annoyed to care. I just plowed through 800+ pages of reading about a neurotic, over-sex, spoiled, selfish little girl. Susie is the least likeable character I've ever read! (Spoiler)** My god, everything that happened to her she wanted, and actively sought out from the 14 yr old experimentation with the older guys, to the porn acting, to sleeping with like every single one of her "friends" guys, ...more

Lemme tell you, this book was not what I expected. It took me through some twists and turns and ups and downs. When I tell you this B***h Susie fought to the literal end, I was amazed. What I didn't like was the epilogue, mostly because it left me kinda hanging and was too short. Also, I could've done without the Joan character's POV. She was just too whiny and insecure and worked my last damn nerve. Plus she was a stupid traitor. I loved Tyler and want my own J

Very much enjoyed this read after Fifty Shades and Bare to You. The characters are enticing and very interesting to say the least. The ending wasn't what I quite expected but I would definitely read her other books about the characters to see how Susie and Tyler got to the 17 years later mark. I would definitely recommend this book to friends.

I SO loved this book. I bought in its entirety, not in parts. I did not expect to experience so much identification with the female main character, Susie. I think that identification is what has driven me to read the book three times. I haven't re-read it for the sex, I re-read it for the STORY. That's really rare. I really, really love this book.

I liked that the characters were a little more believable than the billionaire businessmen of so many other erotic novels. (Obviously, Susie has money
4.5 stars!

I initially was not impressed by Part 1 of this 8 part book, but I'm so glad I continued reading! The story just got better and better with each page!!!

It's a long book, but it is filled with a cast of interesting characters who eventually grew on me. They felt very real, "warts and all". ;)
I even fell in love with Susie and Tyler, though I wasn't quite sure I would connect with them at the start. I can understand the frustration in other reviews I've read, but

I don't really know what to say about this. First off, the writing was good. The story was good. I liked most if the characters. I had a hard time with the fact that Susie made no apologies EVER for her behavior... her "jobs," her drug use, all the secrecy, the infidelity (yeah, I'm talking about the chicks)... she never once seemed to feel bad about it, and even after Tyler found out, instantly accepted it and tried to move on, Susie left him... over and over. I wanted them together all along b ...more

I don't even know why I finished this series and honestly, I sped read through most of the last 150 pages because I was so bored by this story. Sadly, the main male character Tyler was way too weak for me confidence wise and I wasn't at all attracted to him physically either. Long hair pony-tailed Indian just doesn't do it for me sorry. I just kept waiting for him to cut his hair the entire time I was reading this. The main setting involves the characters attending a university and I'm not sure ...more

I'm a little torn on this book. It really sucked me in. I couldn't put it down, I was so intrigued with their story. At first I thought Susie was such a fun character. She was spunky and I was dying to know all of her secrets that she kept so tight. This quote is what made me love Susie.

I absolutely LOVE this whole series! I really can't say enough about how much I love the main character Tyler. he's such a funny and nerdy everyday guy. oh, and of course he's a super hot nerd. I love how in love he is with Susie and what he's willing to do to make Susie see how perfect they are together. there were so many hilarious scenes in this book. I was laughing right from the first page. Tyler's internal monologue is so awesome and the author did a really awesome job writing from his POV ...more

I had to finish this mammoth reading session....I really enjoyed this book, even though Susie could be extremely frustrating at times, I had warmed to her and just wanted to know her secrets and her past..she was extremely mentally broken...Tyler, what a sweetie...he just would not give a puppy with a bone!! Even the back characters were interesting (except the biatch Kate!!)I must admit I was a bit upset with the epilogue skipping so much but understand that this is because there will ...more

This has been sitting on my kindle for a few months now...I grabbed it when it was set to free on Amazon and finally caved in to reading it. Wow was I surprised. I enjoyed the back and forth with Susie & Tyler and Tyler evolving from a love sick puppy into a alpha. I could have lived without Susie being 'involved' with every man & woman in the book. Not to mention her 'career' choice. I am glad that she worked her issues out and she finally gave into her lov

LOVED this book. I've actually gone back and read it two more times. Very lovable characters (both primary & secondary). Tyler's feelings were believable and Susie's struggle to balance desire and her past were heartbreaking. Very good romance.

I really liked this book in the beginning but in the end the secrets got really annoying. It got so bad i finally stopped reading. I got more than halfway through but then I had to stop because the secrets got to annoying.

Holy Hot Sex Batman!! This was a great book, if you just want a little adventure and twist. It was an easy read after I read a few stories that had my heart racing due to drama.

Loved loved loved this book. I can't believe I had this in my kindle for so long and didn't read it.
Susie and Tyler. Awesome. Makes 50 shades of gray look like a golden book.
I've been stuck @ 8% since January, 2013. I might come back and finish this at a later date ... or not.

The story (up until 8%) failed to grab my attention :(

I wish I was more inspired to write my half-assed rantviews, I guess I'm kindda off the mood but I'm still going to try to make this a bit coherent. I have quite a lot to rant about this book.

This book is practically a compendium on the pro's of therapy. Therapy that both our main characters never ever get but are in desperate need of. We have Tyler and Susie as protagonists, they met one day at a coffee shop after college classes, hit it off and start banging each other brains out. Time after

I loved this book for a few reasons. The first being the way it was written, from more than one POV! It was a long book but it never dragged. There was never a moment when you lost interest. The book was captivating throughout the whole book and i honestly could not put it down. I loved the character of Susie. For one she wasn't the typical stick figure main female character. And she had a past. None that most people would look down on her for which is why she kept it a secret. And whether she

I enjoyed this book, it was not what I expected some of the stuff caught me off guard and I didn't quite understand or identify with Suzie. But I still believed she deserved to be happy and I was completely rooting for her to let herself be happy. I loved Tyler from the moment she met him, he was so cool, sexy, nerdy, adorable, sweet and awesome!!! It broke my heart over & over to watch her keep walking away from him. The pain of losing the person you love is gut wrenching.

Tyler Campbell only went to college to get away from home. He didn't know the love of his life would find him in a coffee shop and become his obsession.

Susie Lombardi thought good things like Tyler Campbell didn't happen to her.

Yet, there was something holding her back from fully committing to Tyler, a secret, and I started this book when it was in series form, and had to wait for the next installment, it had me guessing the whole time.

I liked this story a lot and would read it again. I could not put it down and I couldn't stop thinking about it when I wasn't reading. It enveloped me. I thought the story was well written. It was a Hot & Steamy read. Tyler was a stud in the bedroom. Through out the whole book she was so worried about telling her secret to Tyler, then when he finds out she doesn't understand why he is mad. I didn't really "get" that.I really wanted him to get angry and upset with Susie when he found out abou ...more

Such a good book. I'm glad that I came across the entire collection becasue I don't think I would have liked to wait. I got the first couple of books for free on amaazon and was captured by the storyline. I really like reading books that are written from the characters point of view.

With all the porn that Tyler was into, I was a little surprised that he never came across her before. The way Susie was hiding her secret wasn't that great since it hinted that at least two guys she was w

This is my first book by Shaina Richmond. I will definitely read more of her work. I was blown away with the writing. I loved hearing the story from different points of view. It gives the story so much more depth and you find out more about the characters. I love Susie because I too am not a stick figure kind of girl. I'm rooting for Tyler and Susie. I knew it was good because I could not put it down. The emotions each character showed and each battle Tyler and Susie struggled through was descri ...more

A lot of unsettled, unresolved feelings in this book. Poor Tyler!!! The fact that the entire 800+ pages was less than a year in time and then the epilogue was 17 years later was a bit frustrating!!! I'm guessing there was a lot that happened over those 17 years, especially as much turmoil as there was in their first year!!!! Authors note added stated she would answer a lot of questions with stories on the other characters ~ not for me! I'll take the "happy ever after" played on me in this series ...more

Super hot and kinky!!! If you don't like drugs, alternative and descriptive sex, then this book is not for you. I purchased this series after reading FSOG hoping for another sexy love story. What I received was above and beyond that!!! This series is NOTHING like FSOG, it is so much more. This author takes you on a ride through the lives of these characters that was more realistic and plausible. This story takes time to evolve and doesn't happen over a quick period of time. It deals with some re ...more

Wow this book was nothing like what I had expected it to be like..She was so complex with so many layers that needed to be pulled down for the real person to show through..This book took me on a journey of discovery and i loved every moment of it..Her secret was something I didn't see coming, so kind of threw me for a bit..
I fell in love with his character, he knew what he wanted and he wasn't going to let anything or anyone get in his way..
I give this book 5/5 without any hesitation
