5 Star Review

This book was ah-mazing!!  I didn't want to put it down.  It was a long book, but didn't feel long.  I am happy and sad that this book ended.  Sad because I have to wait for book two and happy that I get more Tara, Riley and Cole.

Tara is trying to find herself after a two year long relationship that didn't go well.  She was always told she wasn't good enough.  She needed to find herself and where she belonged in life.  She was instantly attracted to Cole when she sees him. Though she doesn't know his name her and her best friend Kelli, called him Mr. Hotbod.  She was embarrassed to talk with him after Kelli and her big mouth. She then meets Riley through Kelli and her boyfriend Cooper. She wants him  and feels drawn to him, but doesn't know if she can handle a long distance relationship.  She has issues with trust and doesn't think she can handle constantly wondering what is happening.  Will she give Riley a chance? Or does she open up to Mr. Hotbod?

Riley is content with his life.  He doesn't need a girl since his girlfriend broke him.   He is shocked by the connection he feels for Tara the moment he meets her.  He doesn't want to push her because he feels she is special and wants a chance to get to know her.  He knows it won't be easy having a long distance relationship, but knows it will be worth it.  Can her convince her to give him a shot?

Cole is a manwhore.  Always with a different girl and never gives a girl a second time.  He is happy the way his life is going.  Until he meets Tara and she turns his life upside down.  Making him want things he shouldn't.  Will he have his chance at Tara?  Or does his manwhore ways scare her off?

This is an intense book. It had me on the edge of my seat hoping for things to happen or not to happen.  I really LOVE Riley.  He was so sweet and charming.  Though he wasn't perfect, but who is?
Now I had a lot of issues with Cole, but by the end of the book he had me rooting for him.
I am so torn with who I want Tara to end up with.  I think that I will always be Team Riley.  I cannot wait for book two so I can see what happens between all these people.
I loved all the secondary characters also.  Jason, Marcus, Jay, Kelli and Cooper.  I really would like to see a book on all of them.  This is a definite MUST read book.  I think Lisa Edwards did an amazing job drawing emotions out of me and making me feel like I was in the story.
