Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.
Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.
After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.
Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.
This New Adult Standalone Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature
This book moves from one point of view to the next. This book is character driven. It lets the characters feed the story line. The characters jump off the page is great detail.
The story line was one that I have not ran into before and was attached to the book from the beginning. At the beginning, I, as the reader felt that there was not much character development, but as the story line moved, so did the character development. The characters developed into full characters that jumped off the page at the end. I, as a reader understood them at the end.
The ending was not what I was expecting and I loved that about this book, due to its dry writing that really, in my opinion, did not excite me. In the beginning I really did not feel the storyline was worth reading this book or the characters, but it shocked me as a kept reading. This is a book to let me, as a reader, don’t give up on a book to soon. You maybe missing out of a great ending.
*I got an ARC for a real honest review.*
About the Authors
Krista Ritchie has a clone…or someone who looks exactly like her. If she’s not writing books with her twin sister, she’s pouring over entertainment news and ingesting copious amounts of pop culture. She likes tennis, that thing called the TV, and beating Becca (her clone) on Sega Genesis. She created YA Book Exchange to combat her book buying addiction and started Nawanda Files, a YA Book Blog that features books into movies news, to share her love for all things bookish. Oh, and she does something called science. Whatever that is.
Krista & Becca Ritchie write New Adult books that make you cringe, gasp, and go ooh-la-la. (If you do that sort of thing.) They are currently working on the spin-offs and final books in the Addicted series.
