A moment can change everything…
Ashton Taylor. Six foot one, Dark hair, chiseled jaw, riveting hazel eyes, and a body cut in all the right places. He’s a natural. Things just come easy to him. He’s used to getting everything he wants, excelling at everything he does. The grades, the recognition, the beautiful women.
His path was set. A girl, a full scholarship to UC San Diego, and a bright future. To others, his life seemed perfect. But, things are never what they seem, and life, well, at any moment, something or someone can come along and turn it upside down.
That something…the death of his father.
That someone… Cara Hayward. The girl with the hypnotic eyes, melodic voice, enchanting smile, and lips sent straight from heaven.
The girl who doesn’t want to be seen.
So what happens when a guy who everything comes easy to, meets a girl who doesn’t come easy?
Can he crawl through all the broken glass to find her? Will the girl he discovers deep down be able to see past his perfect exterior?
Together, do they have the power to heal one another? Or, could the very thing that brings them together, be the one thing that tears them apart?
Most of you should know by now that Darra and I read Love, Love by Beth Michele a few months ago and totally fell in love with her writing. I was so EXCITED about Lovely coming out and could not wait to read it. I finished this book in less than a day. Granted I was up until about 2:30 in the morning reading but hey...it was THAT GOOD!
I really like Ashton. He is a total man-whore but you have to love him. I mean I was sitting there going where was this guy when I was in college??? He is crazy sweet to his family and does whatever he needs to do to help his mom take care of his younger brother and sister. I mean who can't get on board with that??? I really love that he was very unapologetic about being a slut. I really liked that he was over the top sweet when he figured out that he wanted Cara. I also liked that she did not just automatically fall for his lines and end up another notch on his bedpost.
There is a serious jaw dropping moment in this book. I mean I had to email Beth Michele as soon as I finished this book. She seriously stressed me out. I can't tell you but Beth is now an author that I will automatically buy her books even without knowing what they are about. I love her guys!!!
I am giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5. GO GET THIS BOOK ASAP!!!
|This is Beth Michele's Ashton...hello YUMMY!!|
Buy the Book!!
About the Author
I am a wife, a mom, an author, and a lover of all things chocolate, well, anything sweet really. While stuffing chocolate in my face, I enjoy reading young adult and new adult novels furiously, and spending time with my husband and two adorable children who keep me on my peppermint pink painted toes. Those same children who inspire me to tell silly stories that cause hysterical giggles to tumble from their bellies. I love to laugh and love to have a good cry, especially after reading a novel that stretches my soul, one that makes me feel, and lingers in the corner of my heart. I’m a hopeless romantic and a happily ever after fanatic, and I love to write about LOVE. I began writing when I was in middle school, penning anything from short stories, to poetry, and then later moved on to write children’s books. I have now endeavored into New Adult and Contemporary Romance novels and am loving every minute of it. My first novel, Love Love, was released in May, 2013.
