Awesome hs story 7 stages of hookup hot nude
I sure hope so. Because it is with great Grinch joy and bah humbug happiness that I say I really liked this book.
I know, I know For those around here who know me and and my history with Kristen Ashley, you know how exciting this is for me. For those who don't I ADORE her rambling lunatic way of writing that makes connections between characters so strong, so believableso I'm-right-there-with-them, sitting in their living rooms, taking in their candid family photographs.
And then there was Wild and Free. And my head exploded. I'll link some of those reviews at the end of this bad boy. And I have been called a fair-weather friend for those reviews. A fake fan for some of those reviews. A Hs story 7 stages of hookup seeking whore who only read those books to write rants for those reviews. And you know what? I scoff at that. Because I am one of her biggest fans. I have read over 52 of her books, people.
And as true FANS, we are allowed to be passionate and critical of stuff we don't like from authors we love. People don't read and buy 52 things they know they are going to dislike. That's just bad math.
Most fans funds and space allowing, of course get everything they can get their hands on from whatever their fandom is. They literally must have asked mom and dad for every edition, version, companion book, wand, what have you, for every Christmas and birthday since they were ten years old. And I dig it. We all like to surround ourselves with stuff we Hs story 7 stages of hookup. So it brings me total fucking JOY to have loved this thing.
I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Yes, it got a little long-winded at times. Yes, the second half was kind of without any of the major climactic moments I was expecting.
But, you know what? Reading this made me feel like I was back in reading Motorcycle Manwhich was my first KA ever. Did I love it as much as Motorcycle? Is it one of the best KA's I've ever read?
Probably won't be for you either. Because I just enjoyed it. Reading this was like wrapping a familiar warm blanket around my shoulders and saying, Ahhhh I really liked Johnny. He was swoony and KA-sexy. And I really, really liked Eliza. She wasn't an idiot. She wasn't Justice, the retarded "poet's soul" from Bounty whom I wanted to tag with a mack truck.
But, most of all?
Also worth noting is that KA Hs story 7 stages of hookup up some stuff. She didn't have people chin-lifting, saying "eyes" and constantly wax poetic about how "cute" everything was. She also didn't go into detail about drywall and slowly kill the parentheses button. All of which I loved and appreciated. The promised rant review links: View all comments. Oct 15, Aestas Book Blog rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is one of the best books Kristen Ashley has ever written!
And I say that from the perspective of someone who has read, loved, and reviewed over 40 Kristen Ashley books.
But this one just hit all the right marks. It was a perfectly balanced and beautifully written romance with heat, heart, and happiness.
Hs story 7 stages of hookup can't recommend it highly enough! This was Vintage KA gold! KA is known for her rather lengthly books but I read this in one non-stop stilling. It was everything I OMG. It was everything I could wish for. After finishing the last page of the epilogue I just sat there with my heart pounding, happy tears spilling out of my eyes, and the hugest smile on my face.
Johnny Gamble was an Alpha hero to his core. He was protective, Hs story 7 stages of hookup, loyal, kind-hearted, caring, sexy, swoony, sometimes infuriating but humble enough to admit his mistakes.
His past has left his heart damaged, but when Izzy came into his life, he fell so hard for her. Izzy was strong, sassy, and down to earth. I loved them together! Oh AND you should know -- there is no love triangle in this book. I know a few of you were worried about that based on the blurb but I cross my heart and promise you that there isn't even a whiff of a triangle. Johnny's ex is a painful part of his past and her arrival back in town is something he needs to deal with for sure, but at no point does he ever even consider getting back together with her.
I just want to reassure you and promise that there is no triangle! OK now I'm getting way ahead of myself here. Especially if you have no idea what the book is about yet and you're just staring at my review so far like " huuuuh??? This page contains the choices in High School Story, Book 3 and their Choice 7.
Perfect! Let's go! Not me. Let's try something else. If you choose the . "Missed Connection" if you only got one +Matchmaker.
