3,5 Stars!
A very compelling story, filled with secrets and misunderstandings, a tortured heroine and a hero with a broken heart. Maybe this time around they can make it!


Nevaeh and Landon or Thor and Heaven. Two people, two couples, two different timelines. Their second chance comes after two years of heartbreak, pain, death and finally absolution.

A very compelling story, filled with secrets and misunderstandings, a tortured heroine and a hero with a broken heart. Maybe this time around they can make it!


Nevaeh and Landon or Thor and Heaven. Two people, two couples, two different timelines. Their second chance comes after two years of heartbreak, pain, death and finally absolution.


Nevaeh had to make a choice, she had to break Landon's heart when they were both in high-school, she had to take a job that would question her morality and make it through her mother's sickness. Landon was left behind thinking the worst of her and losing himself piece by piece everyday.


Two years forward and Nevaeh is ready for a new beginning, or at least that's her goal. Helped by Peyton, her best friend, she finds a new home and a huge surprise living there!


Such a good start but around the middle the story lost its edge and became a big cliche. Even so i still loved the first part and the last one. Objectively it wasn't perfect but for me it kind of was. This story had some of my favorite ingredients on it: Jealous exes, Roommates, Passion, Second Chances if it was also well written it would have been a total winner!




THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK

- I loved the story-line.
- A little too obvious that Peyton is the voice of reason. But still she was a great friend.
- Needs a lot of editing!
- Their pranks to each other, were amazing.
- I wanted more of the games. They should have waited for him to be single.
- Landon's experiences after their first break up. Wow! It's tragic and romantic in a twisted way.
- The writing is amateur, awkward and maybe a little rushed at times.
- The story seems extremely underdeveloped at points. With such a premise there was so much more to do, than fill it with sex scenes.
- I liked Gavin, he was very honest.
- Too much sex!

So she enrols in FSU and moves in to an apartment with her best friend Peyton and two other roommates, only when she meets the other roommates Giselle and Thor she has the shock of a lifetime when Thor turns out to be non

Sometimes helping the ones you love means sacrificing a piece of your heart. For Nevaeh Hewett, it means leaving behind her boyfriend Landon Blake in order to help her mother who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Two years later, after her mother loses her battle with cancer, Nevaeh is able to start over fresh with her best friend Peyton at FSU. Things seem to be looking up for her as she starts a new chapter in her life…that is until she is introduced to her roommates. Thor is gorgeous, cock ...more

I had such high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, I stopped feeling excited after the first 10% of this book. Not my cup of tea. Rating it 2.5 stars because I found the premise good. The characters seemed childish to me, the cheating turned me off (even if it was for the sake of the heroine)and I couldn't connect to the heroes...Also, the editing is not good. Seems rushed and full of typos. A pity because I enjoyed the author's previous work...


DNF at 52%....

I received this for an honest review.. I have to say that this was a FANTASTIC read. This book is a wild freaking ride. One that you just don't want to end. This book has it all.. Angst, sexy sexy hotness, jealousy.. I knew the minute I picked this book up I would not want it to end.

Neveah and Landon were high school sweethearts and Neveah breaks up with Landon because she has so much on her plate and doesn't want to drag him down. a couple years later they meet up in the most unconventional wa

Too Much Drama

I literally only finished this book because I just couldn't look away. It was so much drama! They were high school sweethearts, she broke his heart. Then they became enemies to lovers. It was so much happening. I probably would have like it more if Landon/Thor wasn't so horrible. Neveah did not deeserve a lot of what he did, yet she kept going back, and he kept dragging her back. I was most bothered when he called her fat. Considering his girlfriend was very thin and always wor

Lots to Like in This Sports Romance

Here's what I liked about this book. 1. I mostly enjoyed the style of writing. It had the right amount of descriptiveness to keep it interesting without getting bogged down, and the conversations flowed naturally. 2. The strong friendship between Nevaeh and Peyton. 3. Landon is a dirty talk champ! Love his filthy mouth!

Here's what I didn't like: 1. Nevaeh put off waaaaayyyyy too long telling Landon about her "secret" and her rationalizing became t

I did really like the characters and I love how they have a strong connection even from before the book even begins. I like that they get a bunch of obstacles thrown at them I liked to watch them maneuver threw them.
I didn't like the twist to the story I felt the let down that it wasn't playing out the way I expected also I couldn't get over the fact of willing to cheat on someone no matter what the circumstances are.

Started out good but I couldnt get passed the fact that our (view spoiler). She lost all my respect after that. I dont see her as heroine at all. She was a bad person imo.

**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

The Object of His Deisre was one of those books that immediately sucked me in. It started off with Nevaeh making a huge heartbreaking decision. Her mom had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and Nevaeh was faced with having to step up and care for the woman who sacrificed her life for them. After borrowing some money from a shady character and doing the unimaginable to pay him back, she felt tainted and degraded. Ashamed of he

Shelves: second-chance
I was drawn into this book because it's a second chance romance and a love triangle. Nevaeh is at a new college to be with her best friend Peyton and rooming with Peyton's friends Giselle and Thor, who are a couple. Thor turns out to be Nevaeh's first love, Landon, from high school whose heart she broke and now they are living in the same apartment. Talk about mounting tension and bitterness. Nevaeh had her reasons for leaving Landon and it wasn't because she didn't love him. Okay, so I have to ...more

HOLY FREAKIN WOW! I'm so glad I read this book. This is my first book by Ms. Watson and I must say I loved, loved, loved it! Landon is definitely a gorgeous hunk of man and he is head over heals madly and deeply in love with Nevaeh. He is my new favorite book boyfriend. Nevaeh is one lucky girl, she not only gets the love of a wonderful man just once but twice. Nevaeh and Landon definitely go through some trials and tribulations but love wins out. It took me awhile to figure out why Landon kept ...more

I enjoyed this book but I have to say it was heavy on the drama, almost too much.
Nevaeh breaks Landon's heart and her's in the process but it's what's best for him. Her focus has been her mother and now is her time to focus on herself. Things couldn't be more ironic than actually ending up in the same apartment as Landon but maybe things were just meant to be. It's a rocky road these two are on and a lot of hate is rolling off of Landon. Once Landon learns somethings these two can't keep
