Teddy had two rules—Live for the moment and never look back.

With wealth, good looks and confidence at her fingertips, nothing was going to stop her from living life to the fullest. Not even the secret she’s been forced to live with.

When Asher Rose met Teddy King, he knew it’d be trouble but it was just the kind of trouble he didn’t mind himself falling in, what he didn’t plan was falling hard for the girl no one could tame.

What happens when you take a trip on this sexy ride? An intense, messy and wild ride all the way down.



Asher



She crawled up next to me, and if things weren’t awkward enough, she straddled me. She leaned in to kiss me, and just as I suspected, her lips felt as soft as they looked. It was lips like hers that were always the best to kiss. She drew them in a line from my ears to the middle of my neck, igniting a low moan from me. She had me hypnotized, making me forget who I was kissing for a second.

Teddy. The same Teddy who was tight with my boy. Hooking up with him, too. I knew they weren’t serious, but it felt like I was crossing a line here. “Wait, wait. Teddy…what are we doing?”

She ran her fingers through my hair and unleashed a small smile. It was slight, but I had a feeling it was that, that did most people in. I was not immune. “Do you want to stop?”

I thought about it for a good second, but only for a second. “No, not really.”

“All right then.”


Experiment




Although I did enjoy the story, I struggled through reading parts of it. I think the biggest thing that held me back was some of the dialog between the characters. It is written in the dialect that the characters would be using and since I'm not use to it, it made it difficult for me to understand. It took a little while, but eventually I was able to read without feeling like I had to slow down to figure out what was being said.  Although I've read other racially diverse books, this is the first that was written in a way that I would expect those from southern Florida to speak. I hope this isn't coming across as discriminatory because it is not meant to be. The first book with written with a southern accent was difficult for me to read too. Being that I'm from rural PA, it's just something I'm not used to. 

Once I got past that, I was able to enjoy the story. I loved the racial diversity in the book. It put a different edge to the characters. Teddy was a very complex person. I wanted to understand why she did the things she did. I knew there had to be something that she was keeping from everyone. I kept reading until I was able to understand her character. 

Although it took a little longer to read than most books this size, it was worth the time and effort. 



Now that I knew her-2



Guinevere is the G. Libertad is the L. Seems fitting to go by GL Tomas as twin coauthors with a mission. They’re mostly known by their platform Twinja Book Reviews, a review blog that supports and promotes diversity in YA titles and speculative fiction, but they hope to successfully cross genres successfully with their romance debut Same Page.
