Krista and Becca Ritchie are geniuses! They are insanely talented. Their writing is smart, it is witty, it is quick, it is fun, it is emotional. You can read their blood, sweat and tears within the lines of the page. The time they take to write their books is evident by the brilliant character and plot development, not to mention their incredible dialogue. This series has blown me away. It is like nothing I have ever read before. And they continue to hold me captive to my ereader with each release! I did nothing today but read this entire book!
This book about Connor and Rose was freaking awesome! Who comes up with the idea of putting these characters in a Reality TV situation AKA Real World!? DAYUM!
Holy crap! I LOVE Connor. There I said it. 😉 His character remained strong and arrogant but we get to see his interaction with Rose, his protective side that had me swooning. Who would have known Connor had that in him?
“You’re not a pit stop. You’re my finish line. There’s no one after you.”
He didn’t understand love because he had never been shown, love. (Until Rose) It was a foreign concept to him. What he didn’t realize was that he showed Rose he loved her all the time he just didn’t know that’s what he was feeling. I think it hurt him. He didn’t truly want to be like that. But he didn’t know any other way.
“No.” I say. “I’ve never loved anyone, Lo. I’m sorry.”
He yearns to feel a connection with people, to have a family, to finally belong. And he does. With his friends. With Rose, Daisy, Ryke, Lo and Lily. They become his family.
Rose remains the strong, caretaker to her sisters. She is still in control of every situation. Afraid to give her virginity to Connor for fear he will leave her once she gives it away. She is afraid that because he can’t/won’t admit he loves her, he is only after her for the chase. But, Connor fears losing her to the sleazy producer and feels forced to make his play…oh the shower scene…(fans self)…and the bedroom scenes…okay, well, let’s just say it gets HOT and he is so damn sexy. Two words…LAP. DANCE. I LOVE the roles of Connor and Rose in the bedroom!
The French talking had me melting. I swear!
“Je suis passionne de toi,” I say. I am passionate about you.
There is so much more that could be said about this book. It is amazing. Just read it. It’s a MUST READ
“Kiss the sky with me,” Connor whispers, a beautiful smile pulling his lips, “and don’t ever come down.”
