This book was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Cora, in my opinion, is one of the best new adult authors out there. She always has swoon-worthy guys and great heroines!
I really liked Dylan. She was always looking to help lost causes since she felt she used to be one herself. She wasn’t annoying though like I thought she could have been. She was sweet and caring but never pushy. She wanted Silas to be the best he could be without changing him on a large scale.
Silas was a dirty bad boy…my favorite! He thought he was not worth much because of where he came from but it was totally the opposite. He had a tough outer shell but when Dylan got to know him, he totally loosened up and had such an adorable inner side. I was definitely digging him. :)
It was great to see Dallas and Carson again. I missed them! Some new adult plot lines just run together but not this one. Cora is always a breath of fresh air. She also brings the steam, as always!
I am so psyched for Stella’s book! Hurry up May 2015!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: His mouth slams into mine, and we go from zero to oh my God in seconds. He pushes me back on the couch and his big body settles over me. His lips are hard and demanding, and his fingers curl around my neck like he’s scared I’m going to disappear. His tongue strokes every corner of my mouth, and I can’t keep up, so I just bury my hands in his hair and hold on for the ride.
