Someone to Love is a light, sexy read that is far more naughty than it ever is nice.
What happens when two people who don’t believe in love, happen to fall madly into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck.
When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers clear across country to Garrison University, the last thing she’s looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what, gorgeous, Cruise Elton offers.
Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion that never lasts, and Cruise couldn’t agree more—but something deep inside her wants him all for herself. So, Kendall devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player” and proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison University’s own playboy.
Real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them. Everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover, in one another, Someone to Love.
Cruise and Kendall are so completely perfect for each other. They took awhile to get together and then once they did I was really scared that at any moment something was going to happen that ripped them apart. They had their bumps in the road but I was rooting for the two of them from page one. As soon as I met smart mouthed Kendall, or Kenny as Cruise calls her and hot as heck Cruise I knew this was going to be a great book match for me. They keep each other on their toes, which I love. And I also love how much they really value each other. There is this respect and trust between the two of them that is undeniable.
Cruise had his heart broken in the past and as a result he has been trying to sleep with anything in a skirt. He keeps everyone at a distance until he meets Kendall. And Kendall was trying not to become her mother, with a constant stream of guys and husbands. But what I loved most about the two of them was that even though they have both been burned in the past and they have trust issues, they really trusted each other. I do wish they had opened up to each other a little bit more and a little bit earlier. It took them almost the whole book for some of their confessions, but other than that I thought Someone to Love was pretty perfect.
The storyline was also pretty complex. I felt like their were two main characters because the story was just as much about Cruise and his life as it was about Kenny’s. We got to know about both of their families and both of their backstories. It was like getting two stories in one. Addison Moore’s writing was great and very adaptive. She would speed the story up and then slow it down just at the perfect parts. She really sucked me into the story.
I was totally in the mood for a hot and sexy love story with characters that I could completely love and this book was all that and then some. I was meeting friends for bowling and I had to stop reading and I was actually sad that I would have to put the book down for a few hours. I need to check out more of Addison Moore’s books!
