My Review

Scarlet and Tucker had a pretty terrible childhood, and the effects carried over to their adult life. The two broken people found each other, but could they be whole?

I liked this book okay, it wasn't a super original storyline, but it had every component I could want in a NA novel. It was very addicting, angsty and hawt! I liked the setting and cover. I also liked that the characters were seriously flawed. Not just a little panicky or a little addicted to alcohol, they were effed! Tucker was a hottie, and I really liked how he and Scarlett meshed well. I would give this a solid 4 stars, but I was a bit put off by the lead character. I understand anxiety, believe me I do, but every time you turn around Scarlett is crying. There are really only a few scenes that warrant this emotion, yet she cries, and cries. Overall, it was a quick-angsty college read, I would recommend to any NA fan!

I'd really like to read this. I've only read one of Denise's books, a paranormal read. So I'm looking forward to see how I feel about her more Adult novels. Great review!
