“Love is an earthquake. It comes when you least expect it. It rips the ground clear away. Right out from under you.”
The day Lia Smart met Grayson Walker, eight years ago, was the day she fell helplessly in love with him. Coincidentally, it was the same day Grayson fell in love with someone else: Lia’s smarter, sexier, superior-in-every-way older sister, Alex.
Now, nearly a decade later, Alex and Grayson are long over and twenty-two-year-old Lia has finally managed to forget all those lonely nights she spent pining after her sister’s boyfriend. But when Grayson unexpectedly arrives back in town with Alex for Labor Day weekend and the two announce that they’re not only back together but engaged, all the feelings that Lia buried suddenly come bubbling back to the surface.
But Lia is no longer the awkward, gangly tomboy she was at fourteen. Far from it. And Grayson is conflicted by the lustful thoughts he’s now having for her. He knows he could never act on those thoughts, however. Grayson has always prided himself on being one of the “good guys.” But as the weekend wears on, he’s finding this new grown-up version of Lia more and more impossible to resist...
Heartbreaking and sexy with a dash of humor, Sophie Swift crafts a passionate, unforgettable tale about desire, growing up, and the kind of love that shakes us to the core.
I know that this a new book (actually it was released on August 13th...2 days ago) and there are not many reviews yet on how great this little book is.
First of all i don't believe in buying e-books ...i prefer to put those money on actual book purchases and download e-books for free...but i made a little exception here. I bought this on smashwords website for just 2.99 and i have to say that this book deserves a lot more.
The author did a pretty good job with the plot the characters the description and above all the words and sentences she used. I was amazed. I hardly ever see that in a book.
Lia is just like me with one little exception i took control of my life when i should have not after.
I loved her character and her train of thought. she is considerate, loving, an artist and caring person. She is about all consequences before doing something except when it comes to Grayson Walker.And i have to say that i would do the same if i were her. She fights her inner demons but in the end she just says fuck it and plunges into the abyss.
Grayson is one of the most sexy characters i have ever read. Yup here goes he even made the top 10 on my list. Grayson is more like a caged animal. he has inner power that he doesn't know he has. As i said he is caged by a stupid female called Alex. When Grayson meets Alex's sister everything changes in a second, he feels like he awakened from a coma and i know it sounds cliche but what happened with Lia is 100% pure mind fuck. i was tearing the pages apart while reading this book. (actually i was taping the touch screen like crazy). I wont spoil anything to you but i have to say that i will never see a kitchen the same way ever again.
Alex on the other side is Lia;s sister and Graysons fiance. Yup i know you smell the love triangle and you gonna love it. As you can figure out (those who read a lot of similar books) she is the villain of the book and also the cheated one. But she asked for it. It;s true. She is one of those girls that keep pushing people to do things they don't wanna do and also talks instead of them and act like the world only revolves around her. Yup this is Alex. Nice to Meet you My name is Bitch. Welcome to the world that only has to do with me and only me. You hate her already i know. i did too.
So Grayson characters is a COMBINATION of Patch (From Hush Hush without the wings of course) and Mark Sloan (McSteamy) EXACTLY NOW YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
This books is not for kids. i wouldn't recommend it to any hormone unstable teenager due to the awesome sex scenes and strong language. The only thing that i will tell you is: You gonna love it.
The author did a great job with the selection of words and i bet her imagination went wild while writing these things. I am sure from the author description in the back of the book that these were her experiences but with a little twist in them for anonimity reasons.
Whatever you do dont miss out that book. is a must for all the romance junkies out there.
