Publisher's Summary

Tessa O'Connell is a girl as ordinary as they come - or so she thinks. Her aim for senior year is to keep her head down yet somehow manage to convince her childhood love, Jay Stone, to love her back. What she isn't prepared for is for Jay's brother, Cole, to return to town and change the life she's always been seemingly content to live. Tall, gorgeous as all hell, and a bad boy with ocean blue eyes and the perfect edge of adorability, he was her greatest tormentor, her number one enemy. But the guy who's come back is like no one Tessa's ever come across. He challenges her, he tests her limits, he forces her to bring out the girl she's long ago buried under a veil of mediocrity, and, most of all, he compels her to consider that perhaps the boy who infuriates her to the point of no return might just be her guardian angel.

Warning: The story comes with a bad boy notorious for making you swoon, inducing hysterical laughter, and making you question whether you could purchase a clone on eBay.

Book two, The Bad Boy's Heart, will be available November 2017. For updates on the series, find Blair on Twitter as @blairholdenx, on Facebook, on Instagram as @jessgirl93, and on her author page.

I love this story!!!

I'm 37 years old and this has been one of the best stories I've ever read. I don't care if it's high school and the characters are all teenagers. I am in love with Cole Stone and I'm pumped to read book 2.

The thing is...

See I love this book, but why end it like this?? and a second book with bad reviews and no third book yet which means no ending.. seems dragged out. I always read reviews to get the feel of a book and if I will like it.. and i really liked this book. But the thing is CLIFFHANGERS are the WORST.

Talk about abusive high school love

The book starts out with a romantic love story just to reveal that Cole is very controlling and constantly on edge. He has horrible trust issues and runs when the relationship gets rough. Not to mention he cheats.

I want to scream and cry *Spoilers*

Why Cole? Why? Poor Tessa. Was completely in love then the last chapter ruined it. Then it switched to Coles POV and there was never any answers. You fall so in love with Cole then he cheats and the book ends. It just switches to his POV for the last 2 or 3 chapters and it's from earlier in the book. I loved this story until then.

No real end

This was a fantastic read... up until it abruptly ended with no real finish to the story. I find that a little off putting to be honest. It wasn’t in a “didn’t end how I wanted it to” sort of way, it just simply didn’t tie up well. Also, the male voice for Cole could have been chosen better. No offense to him. He just sounds older and it’s a little off somehow. Other than that the entire book was great!!

Unable to finish

Hope this gets better. Hour and a half in. Dislike this narrator. I will give it some more time to decide if it's the narrator or the story.
Nope, can't tolerate it.

The book has no ending...

I was listening along next thing I know it goes back to chapter 4 and that's it. There is no ending. I listened to 15 hours of the story and then the last 38 minutes are chapter 4 again...

Just no....

Three hours into this and I just have to give up. I have nothing against YA romance nor am I a book snob, but PLEASE just trust me on this one. I rarely (as in only twice in hundreds of listens) get so fed up I don't bother to finish a listen but I to imagine twelve more hours of his would be torture. Maybe it's the reader, maybe it's the dialogue, maybe it's the pairing of the two, but the word awful doesn't begin to cover it. Save your credits.

Entertaining YA story

I am always looking for a good listen. This was a good listen HOWEVER, I have listened to books 1 & 2 (yes there is a third out there somewhere) and I cannot believe this story takes 3 books to tell. Other than the length (which again I think was too long) and the at least 3 books (who knows if there will be a fourth?)... it was a good story, solid characters and a plausible story line. It is credit worthy, but I wish authors and publishing houses would stop trying to draw out stories that can be told in one solid book.
