Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I'm solid. I've never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I'm only nineteen, and have more important things to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
But if I give you my world, whatever you do…don’t TAKE ME for granted.
**4.5 rocking stars**
Grant is part of a local band, who smokes, drinks, has sex with a different girl [or more than one] every night.
I preferred the term manwhore. I’d earned that title, and I was fucking proud of it.
Aribel is a Princeton student, always one of the best, being raised in a wealthy family in Boston, with ambitions, as a daughter of a CEO banker and all that bass. She meets Grant after her roomates drag her to the pub and Grant hits on her. She instantly turns him down, but that only fuels his need to pursue her.
She seemed like a package deal—smart, really fucking smart, hot, and feisty. Why the hell would she want to go out with a guy like me anyway?
Grant had never pursued girls or went after them. But for some reason he needs to conquer her. So he keeps asking for a date with her. Even though Aribel is trying to keep her distance, she's also considering to give him a chance, because she manages to see more to him than his playboy/rockstar persona.
We were shockingly different yet perfectly in sync. It was a harmony, a yin and a yang.
I must admit that when I was about to start reading this book, I threw a glance around at the reviews and not all of them were encouraging. This influenced me to be honest and I thought that I wouldn't probably enjoy it that much. But thankfully while I was reading I was really enjoying it and I couldn't understand why there were negative reviews around.
It's like Fifty Shades or Beautiful Disaster or so many other books that I thoroughtly enjoyed, that people judge in a negative way. Of course every opinion is personal and not all of us can agree. But I believe that this book didn't have the best reviews because it was similar to others. It was like reading Beautiful Disaster but instead of a MMA , the MC was a rockstar.
Personally, I didn't mind. I loved it, because I had also loved Beautiful Disaster and it had been a long while since the last time I read something similar. Maybe if I had read this book right after BD , I wouldn't like it as much. But I was truly pleased with the story and the ending.
