Book description:Ember Walsh was always the quiet one, enjoying a book and a glass of wine over the noise and crowds of a club, but when her best friend asks her to come out and meet the boy she likes Ember's world is turned upside down. He appears like a mythical avenging angel, inked, gorgeous and completely out of her league but one look and Ember no longer wants the quiet, she wants him.
Trace Montgomery has buried his damaged past with women and fighting until one day he meets an angel and suddenly he wants more, he wants her. For her, he's determined to overcome his demons but will the dark secret that links their pasts bring them closer or will it tear them apart.
Of course they fall in love. Then he starts pushing her away. Then ends up hurting both of them to finally realizes he needs her. They live happily ever after. The end.
And, BTW, girl solves a mysery murder in the meantime. And... she broke her BFF´s nose.
She is continually blushing, and she says "Oh my", or "I love you so much" all the time. It made me sick! Everyone around her luv each other and at the end they become one happy family. And, ladies and gentlemen, your attention please , THIS BITCH SLEEPS IN HIGH-HEELS!
Long and short of it is, Trace is self destructive. He falls in love with Ember despite his best intentions to avoid it, but he feels not worthy of her so he deliberately hurts her emotionally to make her run. Of course boy doesn´t wanna be saved, but can't resist girl so he pushes girl away by humiliating her, but this super-girl is willing to endure humiliation and be an emotional punching bag for boy to "save" him.
Did I mention that I hate him too?! This bad boy literally says, "I need to be inside you.", and than he lives with her for two fucking weeks without touching! After that, he filles her with 'one long, hard stroke' on every third page and with minimal foreplay (even when she loses her virginity, and of course she has an orgasm) . In second part of book this tough, bad boy becomes a cry-baby.
In my opinion, this is 50 shades meets Beautiful Disaster meets Thoughtless.Just look at these facts:
- owns a yacht
- gives Ember first edition book
- has tatoos all over his body
- has nightmares of abuse
- has her picture on the wall
- is loaded
- is a fighter
- "I´m not good for you Ember, but I can´t seem to stay away from you, either."
- "I prefer brunettes with big, brown eyes."
- everyone loves her
- she is waitress
- she never had a boyfriend
- she is a virgin
Sorry to the other readers who gave this a 5 stars but I just didn't see it.I found the story long and boring. I did not feel the emotional connection with the characters and I thought all characters were very one-dimensional. It felt stiff and predictable.
This was such a waste of time for me. Romance was exceptionally corny and cheesy right until the very end. The plot was so messy and ridiculous it was torture to read. Grammar and spelling were horrible.
