What if you discover the man you want is toxic?
She tasted a little bit of heaven with him, and now they’ve gone through hell and back, but can their relationship take anymore?
Valerie Quinn is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan Richards. He’s an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man, but he’s captured her heart. She doesn’t give up on him and eventually his walls crumble down. By the time Valerie has given herself to him completely, she discovers he’s damaged and may be beyond help. Can she save Ethan and their relationship before he implodes, or will he self-destruct and take her with him?
This book really played with my emotions. All I kept thinking pretty much from the beginning was "I hope she doesn't fall for Ethan's crap". But like all naive 18 year olds, he reeled Valerie in hook, line and sinker. And I hated every moment of it.
This book takes you on the roller coaster that is Valerie and Ethan's relationship. And there were rarely any high points to it. He just was a selfish human being all the way through. Don't get me wrong, I believe he loved her in some way, as much as he was capable of loving I guess. But I hated how he sucked her back in every single damn time!
And Natalie wore on my nerves at times. She knew that Ethan was toxic, but he kept letting him have control over her. And every time I thought she had wised up, she goes and falls for his bs again.
But there are other moments in the book that make the hell of Natalie and Ethan worth it. And that would be the men in Natalie's life that showed her how she deserved to be treated. The ones that touched her life and taught her about herself in ways Ethan never could. For me, those were the highlights that had me holding on until the very end, hoping Natalie would make a better decision for herself.
And boy oh boy, what an ending! There is a HEA that you really not see coming until it happens. It was just what I needed after everything I felt while reading this book.
If you are looking for some angst, first love, unrequited love, piss you off MC mixed in with hot rockers along with HEA and no cliff hanger, then this is just the book for you.
