After everything blew up on Christmas, Liz walked away from me, and I let her. She said she needed space and a chance to pursue her dreams.
But we both knew she was running from the mess she made. Now the political campaign she used as an excuse to leave is bringing us back together and I’m proving to her what she really needs—not just the hot nights, greedy hands, and undeniable physical chemistry.
What she really needs is something real.
What she really needs…is me.
Thank god we didn’t have to wait too long for Something Real. After Something Reckless ended, I was going MAD! And this book did the same…Drove me mad!!
We have Sam; ever handsome, dirty talking, holy mother of God hotness. I suppose his hotness should outway the fucked up shit that happens between him and Liz. But it doesn’t always work that way. Which is why I love this book. Nothing is predictable.
From the start of this book, I was already wrenched with angst and heart bursting emotions. There are just so many secrets. And people getting hurt, lies and deceptions. My head was going to explode….
My heart went out to poor Liz. Oh…Liz, the beautiful Liz.
If you read the first book then you know the shit storm that Liz was caught up in with Sam’s father (who I HATE more than life itself because he’s a sleezeball). I honestly didn’t think these two had a fighting chance. There was just too much damage caused. The exchanges between Sam and Liz are not pretty. Sticks and stones..
Ultimately, his silence is more painful than any answer I can imagine.
I swallow. “Congratulations, by the way. You are officially your father’s son.”
Ouch Liz. With Sam having such a high profile family, Liz was a goner. You know that Liz is still in love with Sam. And she’s trying to move on with her life, but she can’t because Sam won’t leave her the hell alone. I know Sam loves her but he’s being selfish. Leave her alone dude!!!! I wanted to yell at him!!! We know you have a magic dick that no woman can stay away from!!
I wouldn’t keep my mouth off this man’s dick right now if you paid me.
SEE…..Even Liz agrees with me. She would have been fine without you dude!! God you just feel her pain, and my heart hurt for her.
Sam and Liz being apart hurts. And all because of lies; people are very sneaky. You know this but you just don’t know who’s playing the cards.
Then, Lexi throws in all that CRAZY, I wanna cut a bitch angst into the mix. HOLY, bitches are evil!!!
My blood was boiling as I read and I honestly needed to step away from my kindle before I threw it! Talk about Angst…God, Lexi Ryan, you’re killing me. I knew this would happen! She has a tendency to do this. Drive her reader’s nuts and make my blood rage!
And as I read on, shocker…My blood boiled more and more as the plot thickens and unfolds. This book is like fucking Clue. Piece by piece it comes together!! It was soooooo good! I could not put it down and was reading like the wind!
Lexi’s writing is superb and steller. Her story telling abilities are off the charts. And her dialog is plentiful because I am a dialog whore. Sam and Liz are such lovable characters, and even when they are making the wrong moves, you still are on their side, routing for them all the way.
And the SEX!! Holy MOLY! My word..this woman leaves you with your mouth watering!!
I LOVED New Hope, and every single character and story line she has pulled from this town. I WANT more!! Sam and Liz’s crazy train was out of this world! And I would suggest this series over and over again!! 5 HOLLAS and for sure this was Trish Mint Approved.
