WOW!! This book is so full of surprises my emotions were all over the place. I’m either crying, laughing or fanning myself from the steam factor!! I was hooked from the prologue and couldn’t put it down till I reached the end.
Laura Sedgwick is a bitch. She doesn’t take crap from no one….that is until she meets Seth. When they first meet it is not the ideal way, she has just gotten hit in the face with a frisbee thrown by Seth. Yes it was an accident but still…
“Look, I’m really sorry…Uh, what’s your name?”
“Mad bitch with a busted lip.”
“Well, mad bitch with a busted lip, I’m Seth.”
“Well, Seth, thanks for the heads up jackass. If you hadn’t of yelled it, my face wouldn’t be spewing red.”
Laura and Seth are complete opposites but honestly I think that is what makes them work best together. Everything about this book is perfect!! They fall hard, make mistakes and break each others hearts but I freaking LOVED it!!
“Love is a lot of things, but it is not kind.”
Will Laura ever get the man of her dreams and find her HEA? All I can say is GO ONE CLICK THIS BOOK NOW!! You will NOT regret it!!
This will be going on my top 2014 reads!! I highly recommend this book to everyone!! AWESOME job Kate!!
Room 212 Book Excerpt
All I was feeling was showing in the bathroom mirror on my reddened face. I was having a hard time enjoying it, instead of being terrified. I cupped some water from the faucet and swallowed, willing myself to get it together. I walked into the hall of the long corridor that led back to the rooftop door and found Seth waiting for me, arms crossed over his chest, casually leaning against the wall. I stood on the opposite wall, placing my hands behind my back. I felt a drop of water drip from my bottom lip onto my chest and slide into the V of my dress. I saw his eyes follow it with envy as he spokes his first words to me.
“You are all I think about, and I come here and you look…like this,” he breathed the words to me and I felt them on every inch of my body. I moved to go to him and he made a small gesture that kept me where I was. He still wanted to play and I was game.
“What do you think about?”
“Your laugh, the way your voice is raspy in the morning when you wake up, the arch of your perfect feet, the way your hair falls over your face when you’re on top of me, the way this feels right now and every time I’m with you.”
I pulled my leg through the thigh high slit in my dress propping my heel on the wall behind me and smiled. He cursed as he came toward me in a blur. He stopped himself inches away, placing both hands on the side of my face against the wall.
“Temptress,” he whispered into my ear.
