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...

Disappointing Read - DO NOT RECOMMEND

I am a lover of romance novels through and through and although teen novels aren’t always my favorite, I typically enjoy them. This book has a lot of ups and downs but I powered through. However, as I got further towards the end I began to struggle finishing more and more. The female character, Tessa, has a lot of issues and I found myself trying to relate...but her insecurities and immaturity became more of an annoyance throughout the book. The hero, Cole, had many alluring qualities and I generally liked him throughout the book, swooning at times. But as the book drew closer to the end, I decidedly wanted to strangle him. This is only the second book of hundreds I’ve read that I had to finally say STOP!!!! I quit reading with less than an hour left, feeling turned off and completely disgusted by both main characters. What a true disappointment. How anyone enjoyed this book, I’ll never understand.
***SPOILER ALERT***
Over 14 hours in and nothing past second base...less than an hour left in the book and the hero cheats...total BS...I wish Audible would remove this book as an option before someone else wastes their time with this crap story

Loved all but the last couple chapters

Coming from a bit of a jaded soon-to-be divorcee...this was sweet. Very high school. Very innocent/small things seem like tragedies/figuring out new feelings kind of love. I do feel like this very much represented how it feels to be a teenage girl finding your first love.

I was not a fan of the ending. I dont think the narration from his perspective added anything, I actually feel like it took away, not even ending anywhere close to the where the real story ended.

Overall, enjoyable audiobook. just cut the last two chapters!

Not a strong female lead

The narrator wasn't too bad, however the story is a struggle to finish. The lead goes from hating this guy and being a pretty strong female character and then suddenly becomes weak and dependent on the guy she hates???

Not really my type of read but some may enjoy it!
