This is my opinion on the books I read. Remember, don't take it personally and don't get all shitty with me over it. I don't bash the author personally unless the author has bashed the shit out of me and yes one has. So I will bash Madeline Sheehan forever. Otherwise if a book sucks it doesn't mean the person sucks, I've had books I loved and hated by the same author before, it happens. Not everything will please everyone. This is only my opinon and how these particular books made me feel.
My account was removed from GR so at the moment I'm severely lacking in reviews and books but rest assured for the 2013 year I've read over 300 books.

5 Omg I'm happy and sad Stars
Thanks to the author for the ARC of this book. Loved it so much!
You already know I'm not going to give away too much of what happened in the book. For a prequel this wasn't a short novella, thank goodness. They kind of drive me nuts. This was a full book to read with a full story of a beautiful forbidden love.
This book amazingly pulled a ton of emotion out of me which sad to say, hasn't happened to me in months and I read A LOT. I laughed, I smiled like a turd a lot of at the beginning and as things started changing for Jack.
Meet Donny Lewis, my vision of Jack...
Jack is a young, hot, rich, arrogant, oversexed playboy. His past issues and problems stem from his parents. His mother left him and his brother when they were young and she had a damn good reason for doing it too. The only thing is, she didn't take her sons with her, she left them behind with his asshole father. Jack and his brother Alex had one hell of a difficult and lonely childhood.
Jack comes to the point in his life where he's kind of tired of all the easy women that come into his life hoping to tie him down by giving up the nookie too fast. As Jack said in the book, they aren't worth his time and energy for a relationship and he's going to treat them like the sluts they are. Hey a slut is a slut, slut, slut.
Jack goes through soooooooo much ass I'm amazed his penis didn't fall off by the time he started to fall for a beautiful strange girl he saw in the diner he visited every so often to remember his mother. With one smile she became someone important to him, someone he instinctively knew would change his mind about love.
Chanel Celaya, my Belle aka Angel
The same night he see's his Angel in the diner, he ends up helping her because she has a flat tire on her car. He gives her a ride home and is bothered that she wouldn't give him her name. He wants to know her but is in new territory with this girl. She makes him feel strange things he's never felt before, so he is a bit awkward. Of course he gives in and goes back in a few days.
Once Jack has a taste, he can't seem to get enough. She stays on his mind.
Soon after at a dinner meeting with Jack's best friend and his wife, he's introduced to his friend's in laws and sister in law, who happens to be Belle, the girl of his dreams. He learns of her real age and what she's been hiding from him. He's immediately scared straight and thinks he's going to have to stop seeing her because he thinks she's underage and is afraid of the possibility of going to jail. The dinner is awkward to say the least.
Anyway, Belle goes to talk with Jack and he soon realizes that she's legal to be with and is also soon to turn 18. Things get steamy and hot between them. He spends time with her getting to know her and even takes her away for her birthday to a cabin in the country.
Things seem to be going swimmingly until Jack is roped into something by his father. He's supposed to take out a business associate's daughter and show her a good time. Jack knows right away this woman want's to just party and fuck him. Jack intends to show his father the good time he's having with the Italian skank. He knows anything he does will end up in the tabloids and he gets shitfaced drunk to pull it off, and booooy does he.
The blonde biotch invites him back to her hotel and attempts some skank tricks on him to get him in her bed. Yeah bitch, you ain't cute. Jack is able to pull away just before the biotch attempts to give him a blowie and leaves. He's pissed at himself for almost cheating and going back to his old ways, but all he can think about is how Belle is going to feel. Shit just spirals out of control from this point and I'm not giving anymore away because you absolutely need to read it yourself. It's an amazing story.
I love the writing style and it's just an easy book to read. Everything flows beautifully and you are sucked in immediately.
