I’ll be quick enough with this. I should warn you about SPOILERS!

First of all I admit that sometimes I like the way Abbi writes but this specific book was horrible.

The story is about a 17 years old girl (I repeat 17 years old) who had no previous experience with guys. Suddenly she meets Jax and of course she falls for him immediatelly. Ok I accept that. Within two weeks she KNOWS that he is the ONE and that she will never fall in love again. And here I am asking you… what in the history of fuck is this shit? You’re 17 years old and you meet a guy and haven’t even dated before. EVER. How can you know that he is the only one you will ever love that way? And how can you even LOVE someone after two weeks to the point you can’t live without them. Please…

Ok let me quote:
“I love you more than anyone or anything I have ever known. You somehow become the song inside me. It’s because I love you so much I am going to walk out of your life.”
Said by a 19-years-old rock star to a 17-years-old girl who never dated before. And wait a minute, who talks like that at that age or any age?

So this was a book about how beautiful and mature 17-years-old Saddie was but I guess not mature enough to tell her mother that she should stop being a slut. Instead she goes around buying her condoms. Awww how thoughtful!

The characters where all boring. I usually like the third wheel in love triangles but Marcus wasn’t even close. I never liked Jax and I thought that I would somehow ship Saddie with Marcus but nope, he showed nothing different than Jax. All the other characters ware barely introduced to us so yeah, I guess Saddie and Jax were enough for the story.

To sum up, don’t read the book if you’re not delusional.

This book is a huge ‘No, don’t read me’. Well I didn’t even get to finish it and this doesn’t happen often to me. I mean even though I don’t really like a book at first, I usually go till the end before I come up with an opinion. This… I can’t finish it because it’s simply a bad book. It feels completely fake and rushed and not realistic. There was lack of plot and drama and there were scenes that made no sense. It felt like the author was trying to drag and plot, without having an actual plot. No, I can’t deal with that kind of books.

It was like a fanfiction and to tell you the truth I’ve read way better fanfics than this book. Anyway I don’t really recomment it but you have your own eyes so you can read it and then have your own opinion.

Falling in love isn’t always easy or pleasant. The intense and angst-filled story of Emma and Scott is a painful, gut-wrenching and exhausting portrayal of how hard it can be to let go…

Picking up the pieces and starting again in the US, Emma enrols in college with her cousin, Ashley. She is finally free to do what she wants and live how she chooses, and no man will ever rule her decisions or emotions again.

That is, until Scott Mason walks on stage…

Intense bad boy Scott is the lead singer of a popular local rock band. A ladies’ man and Ashley’s long-time friend, Scott holds an instant fascination for Emma — she finds herself drawn to him, even though he represents everything she hates and needs to stay away from in a guy. He treats females like he does a cigarette — light it, use it, and lose it.

For her cousin’s sake, Emma makes an effort to get along with Scott, but she soon discovers that there is more to him than first appears, making him even more dangerous in her eyes. Behind the façade of friendship, jealousy, obsession, fear and insecurity fester — an internal battle rages as she fights her attraction and does everything she can to stop history from repeating itself.

One thing she knows for sure is that if she breaks her rule, it may destroy her.

Warning: Contains mature content — recommended age 17+.

Well written and interesting, a book that can be loved easily. I gave it three stars out of five just because of one reason; I couldn’t stand the rollercoaster of emotions that it gave me. All the feels were crushing on me and it was tiring. The characters were confused and they managed to confuse me as well but it was annoying. The book was all about the two main leads, rejecting and hurting each other all over again and again and again. At some point I had enough, wondering who really does that in real life so it had me questioning about whether the book is realistic or not. I don’t know… I mean the happy end could have had happened earlier but the author kept dragging it and trying to bring more obstacles. I don’t know how to express it since I am not fluent in English but I hope you get what I am trying to say.

Other than that, it’s a book you can read if you don’t have anything better to do and if you can enjoy that kind of plot.

[“Cole?” I said after I’d nuzzled my head under his chin.
“Elle,” he said, his tone all tease.
I nudged him. I was trying to be serious here. “I don’t hate you.”
He took a few moments before he replied. “I know,” he said as we went through the front door. “But sometimes I wish you did. Leaving you alone would be so much easier if I knew you hated me.”
The building was still dark. Everyone must have still been out having a good time.
“Why do you want to leave me alone?”
Cole’s body went a little rigid. “Because I can’t have you the way I want you. I know I told you at first that I was fine with any piece of you, but that changed when I—” he cut himself off abruptly. Clearing his throat, he carried me into a large dark room filled with a handful of bunk beds lining the walls. “I tried being content having a piece of you, but then that changed, and I wanted all of you. I needed all of you. But since I can’t have all of you, I’ll just have to figure out how to live with nothing of you.”
I didn’t know which was sadder: his voice or the way my heart felt after hearing those words. It was all or nothing of me with Cole. He would only settle for all of me or nothing of me. Those were the two options he could live with, but I could really only live with one.
That was my answer. I couldn’t live without him. Cole. I couldn’t live without him. I’d tried and failed miserably.]
