Everyone has secrets that define them, a past that has shaped them, and a game they play - whether they know it or not.

Despite the fact they live next door to each other, Kade and Raya have never made an effort to speak, until a wild party, four frat boys, and... a bulldozer.

Sterling Shore was supposed to be a new start for eighteen-year-old Raya Capperton. Everything was working out perfectly until her two roommates were expelled for a prank, leaving Raya with the house she couldn't afford on her own. Fate intervenes before she has the chance to find a new home, but she struggles to decide if it's divine luck or the devil's cruel sense of humor.

Twenty-one-year-old Kade Colton has his life planned out, and everything he does is an elaborate game to aid him with his future endeavors. Coming from money has made Kade's life easy, but he wants to build his own name - his own future. The thing he doesn't realize... when you only put forth superficial effort, you only acquire superficial friends.

Raya is torn between being amused or disturbed by Kade and his philosophy, but the drive behind his determination isn't what Raya expected. Little by little, her hatred fades and is replaced by emotions she never would have believed she could have for the rich jerk she desperately doesn't want to care about. Too bad you can't force yourself not to care.

The problem is... Kade's shiny name can't be tarnished, and Raya has a jaded tie she can't cut loose. Nothing about them can work, nothing about them makes sense, but nothing can seem to stop them from trying.

*Not suitable for anyone under the age of eighteen

** No cliffhanger
**New Adult Contemporary Romance
**Descriptive sex

Randinformation: Ich lese hauptsächlich Bücher des Genres Young/New Adult und zwar ausschließlich auf Englisch.

Das Buch ist wirklich gut geschrieben, nicht zu kitschig, und nicht völlig vorhersehbar. Ich wollte es gar nicht aus der Hand legen.

Ich freu mich schon auf Kades Sicht der Geschehnisse!

Mein Tipp: Unbedingt zugreifen, vor allem bei dem Preis ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen HOOKED on this book! 23. Mai 2014
Von Linda - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was free and I took a chance b/c the premise sounded interesting. I am so glad I did. What a great find! Storyline is interesting - Raya is the daughter of a conman. She is a freshman in college who lives next door to rich party boy Kade, who appears to be a senior at the same school. During a party at Kade's house one night, some drunk frat boys got into a bulldozer parked at a nearby construction site and mowed down her house. Raya, who is in desperate need of money, takes the offer from Kade's father to move in with Kade for a few months. Kade obviously despises the idea and doesn't treat Kaya too nicely in the beginning. Once she moves in, however, attitudes change and the fun (and heat) begins!

What I liked about the story:

1) Slow build-up in the relationship. I love storylines where the H and h can't stand each other in the beginning, only to find common ground, become friends and then eventually more. The pace of their relationship is wonderful and fun to read. there was no instalove, which I don't particularly care for. However, that did not mean the story was not interesting from the beginning. The sexual tension before they got together was awesome! The buildup made the whole book that much more enjoyable.
2) Both the H and he were likable characters. The h especially didn't do anything too whiny, needy or cringe-worthy, IMO, when it came to the H. Enough moments in the book where your heart ached for her situation, and the H's reaction was always appropriately romantic and swoon-worthy.
3) Side characters were interesting. The author is obviously introducing characters in future books.
4) Schmexy sex scenes. Nothing over-the-top and ridiculous, but good amount of heat and intensity.
5) Entire pacing of the book was nice. Like I said, buildup of the relationship was at a nice, steady pace, and even after the conflict between the H and h, the resolution was not rushed so the ending was very satisfactory. Best of all - a HEA! Finally, no cliffhanger!

Very good start to the series, and can't wait for Book 1.5 which will tell the story from Kade's POV, and the next book on family friend Tag. For a free book, this was written very well with very few editing mistakes. Pace of story was good and it was hard for me to put the book down! Looking forward to reading more from this author!

I enjoyed reading this book. It kept my interest and provided an escape from reality. I read it in a few hours. Both characters are likable. I loved the H, a good guy who gives the impression of being a partier and a player who isn't. He was also jealous and possessive, which I love. I had no complaints about the h other than she ran away too much. Good smexing scenes but not too much. Also I loved that it is HEA. No cliffhangers, which I hate. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, which will be about difference characters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Was I hooked while reading this book? No I was entranced 27. Mai 2014
Von B.E. Love - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I finished this book and I can't get this stupid smile off my face, I loved this book it was sweet, funny, hot, and Kade was a GREAT hero. I love that it took a little longer for Kade and Raya to get together and while Kade "hates" Raya we get to see glimpses of how he really feels as well as their bickering this was an all around great book. I got this book for free but I would have gladly paid for it in fact I don't know why everyone who owns a kindle and loves romance doesn't have this on their kindle or reading device right now. This was just what I needed, when I had to put it down for real life I would sneak and read it and as I was turning on my kindle I would get all excites and smile like yes again a fool. But how could I not this book was just that good.

Kade and Raya live next to each other while in college and that where the similarities end. Kade is cocky, rich, good looking, and the guy who has everything handed to him and everything(and then some) he wants. Raya is on scholarship saves every penny and works hard. Going to College was a dream but she quickly found out that college can be as bad as high school. When Kade throws another party and it gets out of hand some boys use a bulldozer from a nearby construction sight to bulldoze her house, now homeless and broke Raya is given the offer by Kade's father to live with Kade while also making Kade live by her rules. Not wanting to but with no other options Raya agrees.

Raya quickly finds out that Kade is everything she thought he was and worse, but there are times Raya see's something else when she looks at Kade and that just ends up confusing her more. When the kids who want something from Kade make Raya's life miserable it is Kade who steps in to help instead of cause problems. Now the times when Kade is a jerk are a lot less than the times Kade is nice and fun. The more time Kade and Raya spend together the more Raya see's that there is more than one side to Kade, and the closer they both become and Raya begins to believe they may be more. But a family trip Raya was invited to shows Raya that Kade and Raya are only friends or so she thought. As Kade and Raya begin to fall in love Raya's past and Kade's past collide and what may finally tear them apart may be Kades mistrust and even though Raya is heartbroken Raya may be the only one who can help Kade.

I wish I could tell you how much I loved this book, it literally had everything I was looking for in a book I loved Kade he was a great hero. he was everything I love in my book men: possessive, a little cocky, strong, smart, kind, and loving. Raya was also a great heroine she was both vulnerable and strong as well as sweet and though she knew what people thought of her she herself knew her worth. I loved the twist in this book it just added another layer of why I loved this book. I can't wait till I get to read Kade's side(and I don't always like reading the same book from another POV) but I can not wait to get into Kade's head and see his side and his thoughts. I will also be reading the other books in this series about the side characters in this book. I kept thinking as I was reading I hope he gets a book, oo I hope him too, I hope she does as well. C.M.Owens is a brilliant author I can't wait to read more from her, this book had me not only hooked from the first page but entranced.

C.M. Owens has done it again. I stopped reading another book when I saw this one up for free, and I'm glad I did. The only thing I have to complain about is that her books are so good that I get thru them too quickly! Thank you for another great story!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, can't wait to read Kade's POV 25. Mai 2014
Von CaroleAnn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Generally when there are only 5 star reviews, like now, I have to admit I am sometimes leery. I have been disappointed many times in the past and have not loved the book like others. But the book was free, so that made it a no brainer to take a chance. And I have to say, I was impressed especially for an NA book. Very enjoyable read with fairly mature Hero and heroine. Rather unrealistic but original start to the book, but once you accept the circumstances (as you only can in a romance novel) that put the main characters together, it just keeps getting better. Somewhat predictable reveal of heroine's secret, but then had a nice twist to it after the reveal. The characters were engaging and you wanted them to be together. Grab this book while it is FREE! Enjoy!

I would definitely have paid for this book and plan to read Kade's Game, the story from the Hero's POV.
