5*** "Sweetpea & Rainbow" Stars
The minute a book starts with a warning I immediately know I will like. And this was no exception.
This story was a fantastic, emotional, & suspenseful roller coaster ride. When you think you figured something out the author goes and twist things around and leaves you with your mind browned away.
The opening of this book had me in tears. I mean seriously I was a complete mess, my chest hurt so much I couldn't stop the tears from falling off my face. Once I was able to put myself together and see clearly through my watery eyes I was able to focus reading and I just couldn't stop. The story went by so fast it kept me on the edge and I did not want to stop.
Georgie was 16 years old when she met Deck (his brother's best friend). She fell in love with him ever since but their love was just impossible. Conner, her brother disappeared and all this time she thought he was dead. She suffered for 10 years over the death of her brother and not only because of that but something dark happened to her that left her broken and damaged. She completely covered her damaged heart and mind with lies pretending she was someone she was not so that Deck & her loved ones would never find out her dark secrets.
She used pain to walk away strong to cope with shit that fucked with her head. She used the physical pain in order to deal with her emotions. Flirting and pretending was the only way to hide her darkest secrets.
Deck felt protected over her ever since he met her. However, he left for two years after her brothers death to try to stay away from her. He needed the distance to keep the promise he made to her brother that he will never be intimate with her. He promised to protect her but when he returned he realized she changed. He never on his wildest dreams could have ever imagined what made her changed so much. And me either when the author revealed it I was in stocked. I totally was not expecting that at all.
Deck realized she needed help and he was bound to get thru her lies and find the real Georgie no matter what the consequences.
"…fuck Connor. Fuck everything. She was mine now, and I was never letting her go." ~Deck
There was so many lies, so many emotions, so much suspense, I was basically devouring every minute of it.
But more than that we had lots of sexual tension between Georgie and Deck. At first it was tension but right about 47% it was madness. Holy freaking HOT and erotic scenes. I needed a fan the rest the book, it was an amazing chemistry between these two it was ridiculously HOT. It was more than just sex it was need, passion, and pure LOVE.
The suspense and action after they finally gave into each other and what was always meant to be had me chewing my nails and freaking out. My heart beat wouldn't slow down, I felt like my stomach was in my throat and I was having trouble breathing.
Deck and Georgie finally decided that no matter how hard the truth hurt they will never lie to each other. Their love was beautiful and so real. Deck was able to help Georgie's brokenness with his love and his HARD and delicious fucking. Yeah it was not so sweet sometimes it was HARD and FAST and absolutely amazing. He was a complete Dom and she loved it. Georgie realized it was exactly what she needed to break thru her damaged mind. He made her whole again.
"My insides went haywire as he strode toward me. Could a body be set into flames from a mere look? Yes. Hell yes, we were talking about Deck here." ~Georgie
"Now, I knew, and I realized the tightness in my chest was gone. She was mine. Completely. Looking at her now, it wasn’t painful like it had been for years. Now, it was …freedom. For today—tomorrow. For-fuckin-ever." ~Deck
"Georgie was the good in me. Without her, I was sure I’d sink into the darkness of my mind and never emerge. She gave me the light to keep coming back. To crawl away from the evil I was surrounded by, the nightmares, the coldness, and she made me human again." ~Deck
"We’d always been meant for one another. Our paths had been running parallel for so long, trying to cross, yet the ghost of Connor and Robbie and even Kai kept us apart." ~Georgie
We get to see a bit of Kai and I was a mess again. Like struggling so hard to write this review, so emotional. My heart hurts for him, for Connor, for Tanner, for London and for all the innocents that were before them.
I do love the fact that we got to see all the characters from Tear Asunder at the end it was a fabulous ending to this book until the very last sentence...seriously?! ...gawd...OMG...I need book 2 NOW!!
