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:


I mean..

Beautiful Cover..

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..


Who met a handsome OCD freak..

She was like, "Oh, he's so gorgeous, oh he's so mesmerizing, oh he's so handsome, oh he's so hypnotizing, oh he's so..."


And he was like, "I want you, but I only want one night, 24 hours"


Hearing that, she was like, "But I want more.."


So he was like, "Come on.."
Making her all, "Okay.."

Which lead to:

- Them reaching an agreement.
- Her breaking said agreement.
- Him begging her to come back.
- Her returning to him.
- Him running her off.
- Her crawling back.

- Him running her off, AGAIN.
- Her crawling back, AGAIN.
- ME rolling my eyes


*repeat chorus for a few millions times*

*repeat chorus for a few millions times, again*


*the end*

I think the book was supposed to be intense, but too much 'dragginess' (wait, is that even a word?!) made me feel SLEEPY. So, no to five stars but yes to the next book (just because I fucking love JEM lol)
