Desperate to break free…

I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn. 

Trying to play by the rules...

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

The truth will cost me everything.

This book was received from Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my god was this book great! I started reading it only intending to read, say like, a chapter, but then I was a quarter of the way…then halfway…then I was done. Just like that. It was addicting, sexy and totally unique.

Carrie was a total sweetheart. Growing up in a very privileged family, she is not one of thoseeee annoying girls who I’d like to smack. She is insanely nice to everyone and is just one of those good girls who is truly, genuinely sweet. She is really shy but not too naïve. Just a good balance of everything. She’s also incredibly strong, which is something I definitely did not expect. She is the type of person to tell someone to eff off and I loved that.

HOLY HELL! Finn. The perfect perfection of the perfectest guy. I am a total sucker for Marines. Especially the bad boy type. And his name? If I thought I loved it before, he made me love it even more. He’s also a surfer (helloooo ripped abs) and a sweetie at heart. He’s always thoughtful in regards to Carrie, even in their peculiar situation. Jen, can I pretty please have my own Finn?

The plot was perfect. Equal amount of angst, sexy times, and soul mate conversations made it very enjoyable and unputdownable ß I love this word. :) Their banter was flawless. Jen is the holy queen of dual POV. It was completely needed in this book and I LOVED getting Finn’s POV especially. And hot damn! The sexy scenes were super duper sexy. Oh my goddddd I needed some cold water.

After the very confusing cliffhanger, I am not sure what to expect from the novella that occurs after this book. So uhhhh can I have it? Can I have it? Can I have it?

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: My head spun as his lips worked mine, making everything but him disappear from my mind. The way he kissed me. How amazing his hands felt on my body. The feel of the soft bed underneath my back, contrasting with his hard body on top of mine. Pressing me down and making me want more.

  1. I loved this book to. My only complaint was that it ended too soon :). I am dying for the next one, I didn't know it was going to be a novella. I know what you mean about the cliffhanger, but I have a feeling as to what the phone call had to do with - I think it is the thing she was afraid he would have to do - not with her, but the other occupation (sorry for being vague, but I don't want to spoil it for someone else. We'll see :)
    Great review!!
