I give it - 4/5
My review - I really did enjoy this story! It had loads of twists and turns that I was not expecting which made it really interesting!
This story really does breach the subjects on racism, drugs and abuse and showing you what they can do to people or to other people which I think is really great. Not doing all that but showing the readers what it's like for people going through these situations and how bad they are.
I love stories with meanings in them and this one made me cry a little it was heartbreaking! At first I thought it was going to be about a girls normal college experience but boy was I wrong!
This story is not for the faint hearted and I would recommend this to people who like stories that have a meaning in them and a warning about what things like drugs and abuse can do to you.
I really enjoyed this story and I can't wait for the next one in the series.
Oh, shit. He's going to kiss me.
And, he did. His lips landed on mine, and it made my head spin. I was thankful
for the grip on my arms, because I would have melted into the ground otherwise. His hard
grip was a direct contradiction to his soft lips. I felt him pulling away and I followed
seeking more contact, but his grip flexed as if warning me to stop. I didnât have a second
to think because his lips were back on mine, harder this time. He angled his head to the
left, and he slid his tongue between my open lips. As soon as our tongues touched, he
withdrew, and I sought it out. His grip on my arms tightened, but as my triceps began to
shake, he loosened his grip. He let go and wrapped one arm around my waist. His other
hand touched my chin to tilt it to the ideal angle in order for him to kiss me deeper. He directed this epic moment and I followed his cues. He paused and allowed air to pass
between our moist lips, but my lips werenât done.
He opened his mouth and my tongue found his as I lifted my arms and wrapped
them around his neck. I pulled him closer, and he wrapped his arms around me and held
He no longer seemed in control of the situation. He reacted to my ever move. I
was in control.
God, it felt good.
