It’s only my second week at Kensington School, and things are getting complicated.
I thought my relationship with Harry was finished, but he came over late one night, apologized, and asked me to be his girlfriend. I swooned right there, in the middle of the street.
And we are definitely back together.
He calls me babe, brings me flowers, and is planning our first official date.
Our relationship is growing, and I’m starting to want him in ways I never expected.
I’m falling for him.
But then there’s Noah.
I live in his house and share a bathroom with him, and we’ve had a few intense moments.
But nothing compared to him sauntering into the room, declaring that I want him and that, at some point, he’s going to give in to me.
I’m not sure how I’m going to tell him that I’m dating his best friend again.
Or how I’m going to keep my eyes off his shirtless chest.
With tensions running high between Noah and me, Harry’s ongoing family issues, my new friendship with Naomi, and Mohammad’s party-planning skills, things are getting crazy.
CAN’T LOOK AWAY.
Someone needs to tell me how this ends.
I’ll just keep devouring these books in a day instead.
Yes. Yes, I did pick this up. BECAUSE I HAVE A SIDE. And we all know, in a love triangle scenario if our side doesn’t win it usually ruins the series for us. Time will tell if that’s the case for me here. I’m really hoping it isn’t because I will be devastated.
I do struggle a touch with the age of these characters and imagine them in my mind 19/20 rather than 16. The underage drinking/partying/etc. is a lot at times. I really am watching some teen reality show play out in front of me. It’s addicting. I can’t stop reading.
But I kinda love it for those exact reasons too. They’re some books that feel totally different and immersive from my usual preferences of romance/genre that really sink their claws into me. I love that I can’t put these down and want to know what happens next. I love the quick pace and back and forth characters. The angst and drama. It’s all here folks.
Overall audience notes:
- New adult contemporary romance
- Language: some strong throughout
- Romance: kisses / make-outs; a moderately detailed love scene
- Content warnings: underage drinking
