Corin Connelly left her past far behind her in New York City. Along with her mother and an ex-boyfriend who had no plans to let her go. Starting over in college in California seemed like a vacation in paradise compared to her old life, and if anyone needs a fresh start, it’s her. But her new roommate has a life-threatening secret, and soon paradise becomes even more intense than New York. When she loses a bet to the university soccer team’s star goalie, Skylar Martin, he claims a prize she didn’t ever plan to give him.
A weekend in her hometown.
Skylar Martin is used to getting what he wants. Growing up in a world of privilege has made his life easy, which is exactly how he likes his women. But when a feisty redhead tells him no, he becomes determined to figure out what makes her tick. And what she’s hiding.
Spending a weekend together will change everything they think they know about each other. The closer they become, the harder it is to hide the mistakes they thought they’d left behind–mistakes that will stand in the way of what they both want.
Corin and Skylar will have to stop hiding from the darkness in their pasts if they want a bright future together. But how can you love someone if you can’t forgive them?
“Night night, kids,” I say before exiting the room and sliding the door shut.
“Sounded like that went well,” Skylar greets me on the other side.
I close my eyes. I’d throw the blanket at him if I wasn’t worried there might be broken glass in it. “I am not smooth,” is all I say.
“What happened?” Skylar points to my right hand, which has a trickle of blood running down the side of it.
I set the blankets and pillows on the futon so I can inspect my wound. “Basically I’m clumsy as hell and incapable of not destroying everything in my path. Picture frame broke.” Blood has never really bothered me but I’m tired and starting to feel a little light-headed.
“Come here,” he says, leading me into the bathroom.
Skylar is surprisingly gentle as he cleans and bandages the minuscule cut on my hand like a pro. I guess being an athlete prepares you for these kinds of things.
“Why are we always getting injured around those two?” I almost laugh. “Seriously, they’re the ones in the angsty relationship and the two of us are just innocent bystanders that keep getting smacked with debris. And we aren’t even the ones getting to have all the hot sweaty college dorm room sex. I feel like we’re getting the raw end of the deal here.”
The affection in Skylar’s hazel eyes turns from sweet, nurturing concern to liquid heat. “You feel ready for hot sweaty sex, sweetheart, you let me know. Dorm room or otherwise.”
“You’re like something out of dream,” he says with a voice full of reference. “I don’t deserve you.”
I push him backward until he’s against the wall and remove his clothes strategically, kissing each new part of him that’s revealed to me. “No more talking. No more thinking. No more worries. Not tonight. It will all be there tomorrow.”
He nods but his eyes are still clouded with concern.
“Just be with me tonight, soccer boy. Me and you. No one else. Be with me. Inside me. Make it all go away for tonight.”
I drop to my knees, taking Skylar’s thick length in my hands. He’s hard already, which makes it easier to lose myself in giving him what he needs.
I place gentle licks against the swollen head of him and am rewarded with the taste of his arousal. When I take him all the way to the back of my throat, he groans loudly and lets his head fall back against the wall.
“A fucking dream,” he murmurs when I hollow my cheeks and suck him harder. I add my right hand to the mix, stroking the path I’m taking into my warm wet mouth. My left hand grips his inner thigh and I let my nails scrape lightly against his skin.
His cock jerks in my mouth and just as I’m certain he’s about to come apart, I’m lifted abruptly off the ground and thrown roughly only the bed. He stalks toward me and there is nothing else in the world right now. Just us. Just this. What we both need so badly.
Going into Give Me You by Caisey Quinn, I didn’t really know what I was getting. I was instantly absorbed into the world she created. I feel like my emotions ran the gamut here – from chuckling at their banter, to cringing at certain events, my heart breaking for them, my heart soaring for them… I just felt it all.
This isn’t the easiest book – there are some very serious topics that are handled. Things get downright messy. But that is what made the book for me. Skylar and Corin had real life struggles. Ugly, messy, the kind you want to duck your head in the sand and pretend don’t exist – and you live it with them. Life, real life, isn’t pretty but how you handle yourself as you deal with the shit life throws at you… that is what makes things beautiful. Corin kept pointing out that their story isn’t a fairy tale but it is theirs. And isn’t that just so true to life. We don’t all get the fairy tale… but we all have a story to tell.
Give Me You can absolutely be read as a standalone – I did it and had no issue following along. Skylar and Corin are originally introduced in Keep Me Still but I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything. However, I was intrigued by Layla and Landen and am eager to go back and read their entire story. The 2 books overlap in timeline.
I recomend Give Me You. Prepare yourself for an intense emotional journey!
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
