Lex is the girl of Cruiser’s dreams. But his twin brother got to her first.

I’ve got a million voices telling me why I shouldn’t kiss her. She’s Rey’s girl and off limits. He’s been good to her. I know he will continue to be good to her. Look out for her, protect her. Lex’s been good to him, too. Only a jerk would try to break them up, and I’m no jerk.

But dammit, I want

Before I begin, I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

"My insides feel like seaweed. Yes, I remember how he hurt me. Yes, I remember the pain he caused my family. But since he came back, I've started feeling things. Deep things. Things I've never even come close to feeling with another person. My boyfriend's twin brother."

Gosh, this book!! I am just sitting here with a blank look on my face and my stomach in knots because of this book!! I am absolutely amazed at the addictive writ

I have some mixed feelings about this book. For the most part I did enjoy this book but I think it took to long to get to that part of the book. The beginning of the book seemed kind of slow going for me. I understand that the beginning of the book was meant to set up the story but to me it dragged a little without a whole lot of character development. Once I hit the 50% mark the book turned into one

What I loved about the book:
1. I love the Cover.
2. Cruiser's name and why he got this name. (not his real one)
3. Dual POV
4. Fast paced
5. Loved the second half of the book.
6. Dani- one of the best book BFFs I've seen in a book in a long time.
7. A few tingling blushing kissing scenes.
8. How Cruiser was with Rosie.
9. Cruiser's gift to Lexi.
10. Their first official date.
11. Lexi's mature talk with Rey at his house.

This was a decent book. It wasn’t horrible, but I didn’t love it so much that I couldn’t put it down. But, it was a satisfactory read.

I really liked Cruiser. He’s your typical bad boy that was trying to change, to be better. But he was a genuinely decent guy. He loved his brother and he loved a girl. Unfortunately, the girl was his brother’s girlfriend.

Lex…I’m not sure what to say. Overall, she was just ok. But to start out, I really didn’t like her. I get that she had been through a

Free download. This was a sweet romance, but just happens to be a love triangle. Lex, Rey & Cruiser have been friends since they were 5, Lex was always closer to Cruiser. Cruiser and Rey are twins but very different. Lex is a sweet, caring person but an accident causing her sister's paralysis, changes things for Lex and Cruiser. Guilt eats at them both, pushing them apart. Cruiser leaves, breaking Lex's heart and eventually pushing her toward Rey. When Cruiser returns home the situation chan ...more

I was blessed to have been able to beta read this book and even get a chance to read snippets on a forum. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE CRUISER!!! I fell in love with both main characters' story. I felt for them the entire way through and kept wanting them to get together ASAP but of course they had a big problem - Lex was dating Cruiser's brother, Rey. Honestly, I was sucked into this story. If I wasn't reading it a couple chapters at a time, I'd have finished the entire thing in one day! It's that bri ...more

i was kindly provided with this book for an honest review and i can honestly say that I really enjoyed this book

I loved, loved, loved cruiser!!! I felt like he was as genuinely decent guy but no one saw this side of him, except his twin brother rey. He really cared for lex but having come back from being in new York for 6 months they only problem is that lex is now dating rey. as the story progressed I felt sorry for rey but the connection between cruiser and lex. I really liked finding out how

I think this was an absolutely amazing book. I wouldn't say it was one of my favorites, but I enjoyed this book from the cover to the very last page. This book had two things that I look for in a book, a love triangle and the bad boy. I easily would have given this book a 5 star review if there would have been something at the end telling me that there was another book coming to tell me Rey's story of going away to school and how Cruisers relationship turned out with both his parents and with Le ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a YA book. In this book we meet Rey, Cruiser and Lex. They are all friends until Rosie (Lex's sister) has an accident that leaves her in a wheelchair. That accident changes the dynamic of their friendship.
I loved this book. It was well written. The author draws you into the story right from the beginning. When you start reading it make sure you have time to read because you won't want to put it down.

It’s been a long journey working on Cruiser (over three years) and I knew this story was one I couldn’t give up on. I’m so glad to finally be able to share it with everyone. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Cruiser was a bit frustrating at times. Lex was annoying at times, but she is also a teenager so...I don't know. it was a bit too much drama for me and too much wishy washy emotions.

Cruiser, Rey, and Lex have always been best friends. Lex has always been closer to Cruiser, but then there was an accident involving Lex's sister that leaves the sister in a wheelchair and Lex blames Cruiser. Since Lex shut him out, and he is the "bad" son, he goes away for a bit. When he comes back Lex and Rey are a

Cruiser was what I would consider a young adult book. It was a pretty good read and was everything you'd expect from a young adult novel. It kept me interested and invested up thoughout the book. Cruiser is about two twin boys and the girl next door Lex. Reagan is the great and wonderful twin who can do no wrong leaving Cruiser (Elvis) to be the dissapointment. Lex, their childhood friend and girl next door has always seen the best in Cruiser. Always their to support him and eventually fall for ...more
Oof. I feel awful giving a 1-star review, and I almost never do it. But reading this made me appreciate how difficult it is to write a convincing romance.

The story mostly just ended up feeling really contrived, because the romance was a bit too central. Even a book that's shelved as romance usually has some side elements in the plot, and this one really didn't. The writing and dialogue was at times really stilted and awkward. I ended up skimming most of the book, and never really caring too much

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. So here goes: I did not like this book. The chapters were too short and it just didn't seem releastic to me. I also felt like Lex and Cruiser had too many wishy washy emotions. That being said it was very well written and to the point. The summary sounded too great too pass up, but it just wasn't a book for me. Maybe one day I'll be able to pick it up again and give it a better review.

I loved this book! The story and writing style were addictive and flowed easily. My chest was in knots for the main characters and their situation. A great romance overall <3

Too kiddish for me but it was alright I suppose. I think the teens in the novel were way too young to connect to.
