Synopsis: I’m used to going for the easy things in life.
The easy A in school.
The easy lay in bed. The easy life my trust fund affords me.
Until I met Shelby.
Never in my life have I found retro T-shirts and ChapStick so damn sexy.
She’s exactly what I never knew I wanted.
And she’s *anything* but easy.
But suddenly, easy is overrated.
Only one damn problem… For Shelby, *hating me* is easy.
For the first time in my life, I have to work for something. And though
she may not be easy…she’ll be worth it.
I lifted a section of her bangs that were caked in white our and something gooey. Was that…ew, was it egg?
She jerked away, smoothing her palm down her bangs, capturing a bit of the gunky mixture that gathered there. Crap, I forgot about not touching her hair. What had happened to her to cause such an extreme reaction? A biting pain twisted in my stomach at the thought that someone may have hurt her. I tried not to react, but tension pinched my expression through my forced smile. “You have egg or something in your hair.” This time, I slowly brought my hand to her, scooping the goo out of her bangs. “There, got it.”
Pushing her bottom lip out in an exaggerated pout, she looked up at me. Her brown eyes seemed even bigger somehow. “I was trying to make you croissants.”
“You baked for me? Oh, you so like me.”
She slapped my shoulder, and I caught her hand, pulling her flush against my body. God, I wanted to kiss her. That made it difficult to step away. Instead, I swept my thumb across her cheekbone, wiping off some flour there and holding my white-stained finger in front of her eyes. “I see the baking is going really well.”
She laughed at that, her head dropping into her hands. “Oh my God, look at me. I’m a freaking mess.”
“Maybe they’ll be delicious.”
“Maybe they’ll taste like charcoal.”
I swallowed, my throat feeling like something had lodged there. “Maybe I won’t care.”
“Maybe you have a death wish.”
“More like a Shelby wish.”
This book does a lot of things that are really awesome. First, #CoverWin … that cover grabs your attention and makes you want to read about the man behind that picture. Second, the story-line isn’t overused so its attractive to a person like myself who is constantly reading. And third, the synopsis was written in a very eye-catching manner, so #BlurbWin.
However, when I started reading and getting into this story, it took a while for it to wow me. That was disappointing, but when it finally did get going, I loved it. I used to always think that if a story didn’t grab you right away, that it probably would not be a very good story, but I’ve learned that isn’t the case most times. Sometimes, stories are more of a slow burn, like Blind Spot. Once the story gets going, the chemistry is off the charts and the story is captivating and engaging 🙂 I loved not only Shelby & Tate, but also secondary characters that added to the fun!
