Innocence was never meant for the addictive…
Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.
Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.
However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.
During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.
Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.
"In my stories I could be beautiful. The prince would love me, and I would know how it felt to belong."
I did not expect Blythe to be who she is in the book. I can really relate to her, not because of her past but because of how she thinks. She loves to write and doesn't like attention like me. She said she's an English major because if ever people don't like her books, she would have a diploma and that's what I'm planning to do in my life too. I see her if you know what I mean. From the moment I realized that, I fell really connected to her character.
"I was addicted to Blythe Denton. More addicted than I'd been to anything in my life."
From the previous books of the Sea Breeze Series, I didn't really like Krit. I never thought Abbi Glines would write a book about his happy ending. For some reasons though, the moment Krit appeared in a scene in this book, I liked him right away. Don't ask, I don't know why. It's hard to explain but I guess I just knew from that moment, I saw something good in him that I never noticed in the previous novels.
"I don't think I can remember a time in my life when anyone ever called my brother special and meant it the way you just did."
I've always loved Trish because of her awesome personality. Knowing that I could read her and Rock's love story is getting me really pumped up. Of course, I have to wait because I don't always have money to buy books :P
Also, I love the way Blythe defended Krit. None of the girls in this series are really like Blythe that's why she's my favorite because she's different from the other girls and I see myself in her character more than any female characters in the other books I've read.
Overall this book was just perfect..for me. I love everything about it and I just didn't want it to end. I read it in just a few hours and I wanted to hit myself for not taking my time but I just couldn't stop reading. I can't wait to read the next book which is Dewayne's story. I really want to know more about that guy. He's funny in the other books but he's mysterious as well. I can't wait to know what's his story.
