He was trouble from the start, but I couldn’t resist.
[She was the best kind of trouble. The kind that was so wrong, it felt right.]
I’ve tried and failed to stay away from him.
[I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.]
He’s almost impossible to say no to.
[She never tells me yes.]
We’re always fighting.
[When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.]
He makes me laugh so hard.
[I miss her laugh the most.]
I’m a liar.
[She knows the truth, but won’t admit it.]
Sometimes, I wish I’d never met him.
[I wish we could meet all over again. I’d do better.]
His girlfriend knows.
[The guy she’s with is a fool.]
I’ll never love anyone like I love him.
[She doesn’t love me enough to choose us.]
It was the wrong place.
[It was the wrong time.]
It should have been him.
[It will always be her.]

This book captured me hook, line and sinker. I was the worm. It wiggled me in and swallowed me whole. I couldn’t think, couldn’t eat, my stomach was in knots and I I avoided doing anything until the very last word.
I loved it, I hated it, I was furious then I was in love. My emotions while reading were all over the place.
If you’re like me, you love ANGST. You need it to breathe. The more a book makes me want to throw my kindle at the wall, has my heart racing, and me yelling WTF and OMG while I’m reading, the more I LOVE IT!
Casey and Blake meet at a bar and yeah, Casey has a girlfriend and Casey has a boyfriend. It was supposed to be a “one-night stand”, but neither of them were able to forget the other. It’s like they were drawn to each other, like bait to a fish.
“…Anything I could get from Casey Moore was better than nothing at all. I would take any scrap of this man I was offered. That’s the night my heart split into two equal and separate pieces…”
CASEY… I love you, like adore you and wanna have little Casey babies. He is, hands down, swoonworthy, yummy deliciousness. He loves Blake, and loves her—hard. She owns his heart.
“But I was positive that I wanted her the same fucking way people wanted summer in February and how dogs want their bellies rubbed. Naturally. Lighting her up came naturally to me.”
Blake… I wanted to throat punch her, run her over with my car. She drove me INSANE. I hated her thoughts, her doubts, her decisions. She infuriated me. BUT, in an odd way, I understand the choices she made. I’m not condoning them, but I completely get it. Sometimes you stay in a ‘loveless’ relationship because you think that’s all you deserve. You think the person you really love doesn’t want the same things in life that you do. So you settle. You convince yourself that you’re doing the right thing.
“Because Casey only likes chasing you. Because he doesn’t want the same things you do. He doesn’t want a family. He doesn’t want a home. He likes traveling and being carefree.”
Yes, I was a mess. Yes, I was frustrated. Yes, I was angry. Yes, I wanted to go to M. Mabie’s house and beat down the door to sit down and have a little chat with her in hopes that she’d fill me in on what’s to come. But above all that, this book made me FEEL. I laughed, I cried, I swore, and my heart melted. Isn’t that what we look for in a book? So, I will sit here and wait, very impatiently, for the next book.
