Publisher's Summary

BRIAR -

I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago. Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen. We couldn't ever be together. I was too young, and he was too untouchable. He was too troubled, and I was too naive. But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things. As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners. Until one day, he was gone without a trace. Now, three years later, he’s back. Callous and cruel. He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare. I should hate him. But like a bad habit, I can’t quit him. 

ASHER -

I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes. She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I'd ever seen. We could never be together. I was too old and she was too off limits. She was too good and I was too fucked up. Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist. I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me. Three years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she's all grown up. She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall. I hate her for what she did. But she's always been my drug of choice.

An ok read

I enjoyed the storyline and the narrators. It was pretty good but I without giving too much away there could have been more dark moments and I felt Briar gave in too easy all of the time. But a feel good read nonetheless

Swoon worthy!

I loved Asher and Briar! This was such an addictive forbidden romance that it had me on the edge of my seat! I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop (ie. They get found out!) and when it did, I adored the way Asher stood tall and declared his love for Briar! Swoooonnnn!!!!!

Amazing book!

I loved this book. The characters had enough depth to make it interesting without driving the story overboard. The writing was flawless and well timed and the narration was spot on for both Lexy and Roberto.

Perfect!

The writing, the pacing, the story, the characters were all perfect. Obviously, I’m not reading romance for enlightenment or it’s erudition. I read it for it’s ease and ability to take me a way. This one had all of the feels and a HEA. Asher is the ultimate book boyfriend! I almost wish this was a series. Since it’s not, I’m currently looking for her next book because the review numbers indicate the author is more obscure than her talent deserves.

Not Usually one for YA

I enjoyed it, it was angsty full of assumptions that made the plot of our story full of a major plot twist. there's also very hot scenes that are blush worthy.

having never read this author I was unsure of what to expect however was happy and look forward to more, the performance was also perfection our Heroine's potrayal couldn't have been more perfect especially with her being a young adult.

Is it just me?

Or did the male narrator sound kinda like Jeff Goldblum?

I digress. I enjoyed this one a lot. I appreciated that the main female character had agency and mind of her own. Often times in stories where the dude is older the girl is wide eyed and innocent. Not the case here and it made for a much more interesting story.

Loved this story of Young Love♥♥♥♥♥

Charleigh Rose wrote a fabulous story of young love, miscommunication and second chances. The performances of Lexy Richmond and Roberto Scarlato were perfection and this is one BAD HABIT that you'll want to keep. Extremely well done all around ♥♥♥♥♥

Not the best book.

This was an ok book. Not really worth the credit. sweet but it's to much like all the other regular typical love stories I read. I need more than this.

Masochistic and abusive

You don’t have to endlessly complicate things to make a story. The misery of these two idiots seems really unnecessary

A Good Story

This is the first book I've listened to by this author and it took me a few chapters to really get into the characters but once I did I really enjoyed their story.
Briar and Asher have the whole "brother's best friend/friends to lovers" troupe down pat. Even though they both know they have feelings for each other their age difference is only one of the many reasons they shouldn't be together. But when circumstances force them apart for three years it puts everything into perspective and when they are reunited neither one of them wants to fight their feeling anymore.
I thoght both narrators did a wonderful job bringing energy and emotion to the characters.

I don’t support pedos

I couldn’t ..........Could they have at least made her 18 when they reunite? I read in online reviews that they are 17 and 21 in later chapters. I quit reading once he started making a move on her at while she was 14 .We can not romanticize this kind of junk. It will give young girls the wrong impression. As a survivor of sexual abuse I couldn’t with this book... Asher is a creep.
