~ SYNOPSIS ~
It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to this…
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take the burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend's sister.
If there is one person I’d willingly go to hell and back for it was…
* 4 stars *
Everyone that knows me knows I love forbidden romances....and for that word to be IN the title?? Hello!!! Sign me up!!
This book did NOT disappoint on storyline....I enjoyed the angst that this relationship had, the fact that Jacob was warring with himself on what the right thing to do was, and how the book overlapped Complicate Me. I loved that the circumstances were just ripe enough to cause the scenarios to actually happen....and the best part was, it was all plausible. No made up drama, just real road blocks with honest problems arising.
~The more I talked to him, the harder it was becoming to resist him~
There is a very real taboo-esque (my new favorite word...ha!!) side to this story since Lily was underage half of the book. But, I have to say this: it may have been WRONG on every level....but their love was so RIGHT. It was so intense and so real/true/honest/sincere (insert more adjectives if needed....seriously) that I couldn't help but root for them and feel their anguish and pain, their elation and happiness. This book was an excellent story on navigating their forbidden love. I loved the way their story continued on and we got to grow with them.
Jacob was freaking amazing....dominating, sexy, sincere and honest. He had honest issues with their age difference as well as the fact that she was Lucas' sister and tried to handle them the best way possible, even though we saw how much he struggled with it. Reading this as a dual POV book allowed us to see both sides of the picture and it was SO good!! This was a dangerous game of cat and mouse, because Lily wanted him with every fiber of her being and the feelings were mutual, but had very real consequences if they acted on them.
~I watched the girl that I loved more than anything walk away from me, except this time...she took my heart with her~
The ONLY thing I had an issue with was the way it was told. I loved Complicate Me and the way it was written, but the back and forth between past and present in this one kind of threw me for a loop a few times and I found myself having to think back and remember what was going on. It was slightly distracting, and books in this format aren't generally hard to follow for me, but this time I had a hard time. I am not entirely sure why, but it would not deter me from recommending this book over and over. This book is a complete standalone in the series, but reading Complicate Me puts you IN the story and allows you to follow along with events as they are being told. Since the storyline runs concurrent with Complicate Me, it was great seeing all the events from different points of view. I loved this story....LOVED. IT. I also loved catching up with Alex and Lucas, along with the rest of the Good Ol' Boys.
Seriously.....pick up this book. I really enjoyed it!! I cannot wait for Aubrey and Dylan's book, which you can preorder HERE.
*An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review*
“Is that right?” I replied arrogantly, centimeters from her lips. “I don’t know you? Really? What part don’t I know? Maybe I don’t know the way you move your hair to cover the side of your face when you’re nervous. Or maybe I don’t know how you bite your bottom lip when you’re deep into your strings. Or do you mean that I don’t know the way you freak out if it’s too dark in a room and you won’t walk in? Or maybe I don’t know that you bite your fingernails when you think no one is looking. Oh wait, here’s a good one. I don't know that you're trembling in your skin right now. I don’t know that your heart is beating a million miles a minute, your hands are clammy, and you can’t swallow. How there are hundreds of thoughts going through your mind, but the top one being how bad you want me to kiss you. How bad you want me to fuck you. How bad you want me to claim every fucking inch of your perfect body,” I paused to let my words sink in, and her flushed complexion gave away that everything I was saying was true.
“You’re right. I don’t know you. I don’t see your gorgeous smile in my sleep. I don’t hear that ridiculous giggle you have when I’m away from you. I don’t see those dark brown eyes every time I close mine.” I leaned in a little closer so she could feel my breath against her lips. “I don’t stroke my cock to the memory of your sweet pussy pulsating down my shaft and the taste of your come dripping down my chin.”
