You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you. 


When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. 

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. 
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. 
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. 

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. 

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. 

It had been years since I’d seen Elec. 

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. 

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Well I didn't plan on reading it at all till one particular person mentioned bout it (yes Tina, am talking bout you!). Since Tina seems to hate every book (especially my fave ones) I had to give it a try , just to see what the ice queen (dont worry Tina, icy queens are cool..just like Elsa!) sees in the book. Turns out the book had the 'superpower' of making you grin (like an ugly monkey), pissed off (like a not-cute-at-all hippopotamus) and cry (like a kitten having a very severe eyes infection).


Three Important Facts About the Book 


1. The book was quite adorable or maybe its just me feeling like I should make good use of my face muscles by grinning a lot, but by all means I was grinning a lot while reading the book.


They were adorable when she tries to pretend like he doesn't affect her much...


I could feel from the corner of my eyes that he was looking at me. Despite laughter erupting around me from the audience, the weight of his stare seemed to drown it all out. I wouldn’t look at him or even move.

Just keep staring at the screen, Greta.
My phone vibrated on my leg.

Are you practicing to be a store window mannequin?




They were adorable when he texted her after finishing her ice cream, uninvitedly, to compliment her on the taste because he was too fucking egostical ro admit it out loud.


Thanks for the ass cream. It was really good.




And they were adorable when they met for the first time and he was planning on bringing hell to her life, hell bent on hating her.


She smelled good enough to eat.

I corrected the thought in my head: good enough to eat and SPIT HER OUT. Don’t lose focus.




2. The book has the power to piss you off, huge.


They had 'something' seven years back and that fucker left her just fucking like that. As if they were livin in the year 1888 and cars and planes and mails and phones and fucking facebook has yet to be bornt!


On a random night almost one year after he’d left Boston, I was out with Victoria. I had just been thinking about him when a text came in and shook me to my core. 


I still dream about your neck. I still think about you every day. For some reason, I just needed you to know that tonight. Please don’t write back.

I didn’t. 
Despite the tears that fell so easily upon reading it, I didn’t. He hadn’t contacted me in so long, and I figured maybe he was just drunk.




Seriously? I thought Romeo and Juliet were the stupidest characters ever when it comes to romance


3. The book was kinda depressing, my other word for Angsty. Same difference!


It was depressing when She got hurt again and again by the same asshole, namely Elec (please get that right Tina, ELEC not CALEB).


Why rub everything in her fucking face? He was already in a relationship, why chased her around?


At one point, the sexual fantasies had gotten so vivid, I tried to undo my sins with a text to Chelsea at 2 A.M. 


I love you.

Immediately after, I sent a text to Greta.

If I knock on your door tonight, don’t let me in.




He loved the other girl, why fuck with her head with his love bullshit again and again?


“If you really love her, you shouldn’t have kissed me.”

I hadn’t meant to yell it.
“I do love her.” He looked up at the sky then back at me with anguished eyes. “You want to know the truth? I fucking love you, too. I don’t think I realized how much until I saw you again.”
He loved me?
I laughed angrily. “You love us both? That’s messed up, Elec.”
“You’ve always told me you wanted honesty. I just gave it to you. I’m sorry if the truth is a fucked up mess.”
“Well, she has the home court advantage. You’ll forget about me again soon enough. That will simplify things.”




He left her with a broken heart once, why make it worse if he truly loved her?


The “one that got away” was supposed to stay away, not come back and leave you all over again.

3.3 Just-A-Proof-that-Nobody-Could-Beat-My-Jesse Stars

When I first heard bout this book, I was pretty much like this:

description

I mean..

Beautiful Cover..
description


And Interesting Blurb..
Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He's heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she's almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she'll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M.

All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him... or herself.

M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed -- and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession - an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair..


But sadly, a pretty boring book..

*sighs LOUDLY*

Livy was just a converse-wearing girl..

2.5 She-was-a-Bitch-and-He-was-a-Bastard Stars


description




This book..how do we say it? BORED ME TO DEATH!


description




The cover is pretty, I like it a lot <3
description




description




And the blurb is intriguing enough that I had to read it.


There’s a fine line between love and hate and they were about to cross it.


My name is Samantha Ross and this is my life.

I existed in a world that few know. Rundown trailers and crime-ridden streets were my home. Drugs and alcohol were the norm and happiness was the exception. I lived from day to day never knowing if I would have a roof over my head or food in my stomach. My life sucked. It took from me and gave nothing back.

But there was one certainty in my life. A black smudge on my window of hell.

Cole Walker.

He was a criminal. A thief. He brought hell and damnation with him wherever he went. He hurt and destroyed. He took and gave nothing in return. He was heartache and despair wrapped up in a perfect gorgeous package. Fast cars and fast women were his hobbies. His vices. But he had many.

I was one of them.

I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more.




But the story was so MEH that I'm kinda questioning my sanityright now after going through all the dramaS in the book.


description




So lemme tell you bits bout the book, okay?


When they were kids (WHITE TRASH KIDS at that), Cole saved Sam from being harassed by the guy her mom was fucking (yeah, not DATING but FUCKING). Sam's brother, Bent then decided that Cole was to be his and Sam's bff. That's how the trio of so called friends were built. Sam didn't like Cole for her own bitchy reason which I had failed to decode thanks to my degrading IQ (I have a feeling that the degrading of my IQ was a result of reading the book, but it's still a mystery for now).


My guess is she's just BITCHY like that.

description


Anyway, they grew up, Bent became Cole's bestfriend, while being Sam's enemy at the same time.


Bent loved Cole. Bent loved Sam.
Cole loved Bent. Cole hated (while secretly loving) Sam.
Sam loved Bent. Sam hated (while secretly loving) Cole.



Ain't that fucking cute?

I-Don't-Know-Anything Stars

description


They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence. 

But I’m not innocent. 
I haven’t been for a very long time. 
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice. 
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs. 
Until now. 
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing.**

3.5 Just-Because-It's-Making-Me-Wait-Fucking-Again-But-I-Really-Have-No-One-to-Blame-Because-I-Still-Proceeded-to-Read-It-knowing-That-the-Third-Volume's-Not-Out-Yet Stars


Time for a fucking summary! 


description


Stage One:



A hazy answer (so let me give you a hazy something to appease you)



“How many women do you think a man could possibly screw in his lifetime?” The vendor handed me my change.

“I don’t know,” I said. “I’ve stopped counting.”
“Stopped counting, eh? What did you do, get to ten and decide that was enough before settling down?” He pointed to the gold band on my left hand.
“No. I settled down first, then I started fucking.”




Stage Two: Angry Sex (now use your imagination)


description


Stage Three: Dirty Talk (again use your imagination)


description


Stage Four: More hazy infos (lemme give you a fucking hint again)



“It’s a contested divorce,” he hissed.




(he's obviously pissed off so I really can't give you more *sighs*)

3.5 I-Had-LOTSSSSSSSSS-Of-FUN-Reading-the-Book-but-the-Silly-Me-Just-Couldn't-Accept-Certain-Stuffs Stars



I was thinking bout slapping a FIVE stars to the book but decided against it when I reached the part that I hated (view spoiler)


description


Let's start with the cover..hmm, PSYCHO ALERT? *raises eyebrow*



description



description


Now, lets take a look at the FUCKING INTERESTING blurb:



Right now, you’re probably asking yourself two things:

Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here? 

Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we? 

You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.

Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls. 
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot. 
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue. 
F*ck. F***ck.

Ok, good. Now where were we?

If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.

For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.

And who am I?

Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.

I am Justice Drake. 
And I turn housewives into whores. 

Now…who’s first?




How could you not be curious bout him?


description


Now here comes the part where I start babbling aka the part where people stop reading ;)



Lets meet my Justice Drake ( I hate that name btw)


description


He was cocky as fuck! description



And this would be his Allyson..


description


And she was all, 'I'm better than YOU!' , description yeah typical spoiled brat case there..



But in the end, he kinda tainted her too though..And TAINT is...



TAINT


v. taint·ed, taint·ing, taints
1. To corrupt morally.
2. to sully or tarnish (a person's name, reputation, etc.).
n
1. a defect or flaw
2. An infecting touch, influence, or tinge.




Just pick whatever suits you~



Anyway here's a simple summary of the book..



She went to Oasis, 



Welcome to Oasis, ladies. We want you to consider this your home for the next six weeks of instruction. ~ Justice




..to improve herself for her cheating husband, by cheating I mean, he cheated on her in the past, he was also cheating on her when she was in the program..the cheating goes on and on.. 


description


She was like, 'I should be better for the douchebag so that he won't cheat anymore! Oh, I'm so fucking smart!'



And obviously, the cheating happens for a reason, right?



They seem perfect in every way. Beautiful, intelligent, graceful. The perfect accessory for the man who has it all.

Except one thing.
They’re as dull as lukewarm dishwater once you get them on their perfectly postured backs.




That's when Justice, the cocky instructor who thought he was the best of the best, like a superhero or something (JUSTICE DRAKE FOR REAL!), came to the rescue!
