Book summary:

"There’s a fine line between love and hate and they were about to cross it.

My name is Samantha Ross and this is my life.

I existed in a world that few know. Rundown trailers and crime-ridden streets were my home. Drugs and alcohol were the norm and happiness was the exception. I lived from day to day never knowing if I would have a roof over my head or food in my stomach. My life sucked. It took from me and gave nothing back.

But there was one certainty in my life. A black smudge on my window of hell.

Cole Walker.

He was a criminal. A thief. He brought hell and damnation with him wherever he went. He hurt and destroyed. He took and gave nothing in return. He was heartache and despair wrapped up in a perfect gorgeous package. Fast cars and fast women were his hobbies. His vices. But he had many.

I was one of them.

I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more."


                                    Cole Walker, you can be my new Travis Maddox.

      Every once in a while I stumble upon books that have exactly what I need - epic love story, bad boys, fast cars, true connection between main characters, just enough drama and angst and this amazing feeling that fills my heart after I finished reading. Sweet Destruction was perfect.
     Don't even let me start with how hot all scenes in the car were. (Yeah, I have thing for a boys driving fast cars!)


      Page Weaver plays the safe card when it comes to this - you have a three kids living in a bad neighborhood, dealing with things they shouldn't, parents who are so messed up that they can't even take care for themselves, let alone their kids. A lot of rage, drug abuse, bad choices. Overprotective brother and a good girl (I said "good" not "naive"). Best friend who will do anything to protect them. Perfect recipe for melodrama, right? This book could easily turn out to be a big miss - not everyone can write story like this - but it walks on that fine line. Maybe a little bit over the top at the times, maybe a little bit like a fairy tale - non of those spoiling how amazing it is in the end.

                                                               ***Cole Walker***


     Yes, he is a mess. Yes, he makes a lot bad decisions. Bad boy? Damn yes. But when it comes to the things that are important and people he loves? He's the kind of a guy you'd love to have by your side. There were few things that really bothered me, like his drinking. On the other hand, he is not a douchebag who treats a girl like a dirt. I absolutely adored his interaction with Sam. There is no insta-love, they know each other their whole lives. He is one person other than her brother that will do everything to protect her. And he does just that.

 ***Samantha Ross***


      I don't have much patience for whiny, naive female characters that are so popular in new adult novels. Thank you God, Sam was not one of them. She is a good girl, but still very aware of the world she lives in and people surrounding her. She feels attracted to Walker, but she doesn't let him boss her around. Biggest plus for me - she does not act stupid when she needs to be smart.

 ***In the end...***
