Synopsis:
Have you ever wondered what would happen if your high school crush finally noticed you?
What if it happens 12 years later? I’ve only loved one man in my life.
Gavin O’Leary. He made my high school days a nightmare. Not because he loved me. Not because he hated me. But because he had no idea who I was. He was the popular guy with the chiseled abs, dark tan and perfect hair. You know the type.
The type that only dated the perfect-ten, cheerleader.I was the loner.
The nerd who hated high school and couldn’t wait to say goodbye. And I did — to Freemont High and to Gavin. The last thing I expected was to see him again twelve years later. Yet here he is. Only this time — he notices me. This time — he kisses me.This time saying goodbye to Gavin O’Leary might destroy me.Novella introducing a brand new series. Instant lust that took twelve years to explore. Safe read with an Alpha who knows what he wants and goes after it — HARD


Casey is a very relateable character. She didn’t fit with any groups while she was in high school. She has long, wavy, red hair and I have red hair that I like to make wavy or curly whenever I can. Another thing I could relate to was her size. I don’t really know USA/UK sizes but according to google she’s around the same size as me.

It was so cute when they got jealous of each other.

My expectations aren’t very high when I read contemporary books these days since I have DNF’d so many in iBooks lately, so imagine my surprise when I realized that I was actually enjoying this one. Unfortunately this book went from four stars to three stars in the last chapter before epilogue. I just don’t like the way Casey and Gavin ‘made up’.

I’m also getting tired of these ‘manwhores’. I think I could’ve enjoy the romance more if he wasn’t only thinking about her body. Later he realized that she was different but still the writer kept reminding us about his manwhore days even though I liked the fact that he had no filter.

All in all it was  a good book but that chapter kinda ruined it for me. I do’t think I’m continuing the series.
