Envy is a silent, cold-blooded killer, extinguishing a little more life from me every day.
Hitting sharp, fast and seemingly out of nowhere; struck by lightning not a storm cloud in sight… in she rolls. Reece Madison, a force to be reckoned with, head of the class- which means one thing- she’s out of mine.
“You’re wasting your time Rhett Foster. Locks have keys and walls can be climbed. I’m not buying your cold, skeptical act for one minute.”
And then there’s that…
But as much as she compels me to open up, show her what no one else gets to see…there’s guilty shadows lurking in the depths of her eyes that she cannot hide.
It always happens the same way, every time. The second I finish coming, the blip of exhilaration dissipates, and I’m left feeling vapid and angry. I turn my back on my latest conquest and, blocking out the images of insincere, physical satiation, I scurry off like a criminal. Maybe I should quit fucking them.
Or maybe I shouldn’t. The tête-à-têtes, and unrequited clinginess as much their fault as my own—more in fact, if everyone’s being honest with themselves. I tell them, straight up, in plain English, no “code” or sidestepping what I’m really saying, that it’s one fuck. I offer absolutely nothing more, and they accept. But women have a specific order and purpose to everything they do. It shouldn’t eat at me when another woman discovers her plan didn’t work, and surprise, she isn’t the one “different” enough to change me.
You want to be the lady worthy of a call the next day, flowers, a ring? Then don’t ride the dick until you get at least one of them. And if you do jump on—gyrating and grinding in what you’re just certain is some mystical, “He’s never had it so good before” kind of way, and it doesn’t work—don’t blame anyone but yourself. Who was really trying to manipulate who?
Pretty Remedy… sigh. Oh how many times will I say “And then there’s that” in the future and think of Rhett Foster. Probably every single time. And that will make me happy. Because Rhett and Reece – well, they make my heart happy.
Reece is this tiny little firecracker of a woman. Newly 21, newly free, ready to take on the world.
Rhett is broody, sexy, and not planning for anything in life. One day at a time, or night at a time, seems to be his motto. When the two crash into each other’s lives, everything gets shaken up. Neither expect the other. It’s a beautiful thing to see when a woman can break down a man’s thick barrier around his heart and when a man can bring a woman to see her own amazingness.
Pretty Remedy is so many things. Awesome. Funny. Smile-inducing. Steamy (oh the #drumscene). Beautiful. Cherishing. I cherished this book. Every part of it made me smile. SE Hall could have done so many things with Rhett’s character – made him flawless – and she didn’t. He was PERFECT, with his flaws. I love that Rhett didn’t change overnight, that he didn’t cave into anything, that he had to claw his way into becoming the person he truly is. And seeing him transform is one of the greatest things I have read.
I absolutely LOVED this rock star romance. I will admit, I have a thing for drummers. Bad Boy? Check. Humor, incredible banter and characters that sucked me in? Check. Mmmm, a sexy story that kept me swiping and turning those pages fast? Double Check.
Trust me. You don’t want to miss Pretty Remedy. It will captivate you, draw you in, and make you fall in love all over again.
**Early copy was given for an honest review!
Pretty Remedy is yet another winner from SE Hall. She gives us a little of everything here the sexy rock star, the feisty heroine, the sweet love story, the great group of friends..it is just perfection.
When we first meet our sexy, broody, drummer boy Rhett – he is a down and dirty bad boy. As in meet the girl, rock the girls world and walk away that same night. But ohhh… if you could just listen in on this bad boy – the stuff you naughty girls dream about! And our little, tiny, feisty Reece meets him when she is in for the weekend. But she sure packs a punch and Rhett has never met anyone quite like her. She makes him want new and different things, but she is out of his league.
This book just has it all and NOT in the classic rock star book way. In true SE Hall fashion she has her own style and way of laying it all out there for us. Her characters have depth – they are three dimensional and have quirks and flaws. In other words they are relatable and REAL! We get to see how they grow and evolve throughout the book and through their interactions with each other. That is something that I truly appreciate in a book.
I loved this book! You all need to read it! And then there’s that….
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
