In a nutshell – I really, really loved this story! The protagonists grew up as neighbors. Tina Jenson was the pesky little sister of her brother Smith’s best buddy Harris Chapman. Harris was a few years older, and may or may not have recognized the pure adoration and major crush Tina had on him. After all in her mind Harris was the most handsomest man alive in spite of him having an identical twin brother.
Tina was self conscious of her well developed body after her mother constantly found fault with her looks, leaving Tina in a state of very low self esteem. But regardless of her big boobs and big booty, Tina was determined to have a grand time at Harris and his twin brother Greyson’s 20th birthday celebration. As it happened it turned out to be the best (Tina and Harris jumped into bed together) and the worst (when she overhears crude and hateful comments the next morning) night of Tina’s life.
Ten years later, Tina’s life is a mess. THE night with Harris didn’t just hurt her feelings; it started a cascade of disappointment and soul searing heartbreak. Every time she bumps into Harris, her heart twists inside out. She is constantly trying to hate the very sight of him, yet still wants him. Truthfully, she’s harboring a painful secret from their night together that she’s not ready to reveal.
Crossed signals, high-society whispers, and shame have kept Tina and Harris apart for years, but deep down, they’re hungry for each other and eager to write their own rules. The story combines huge betrayals and a huge emotional roller coaster of misunderstood comments, finger pointing and some very hot sensual laden scenes. With so much history of failing and feeling like a failure, it was taking its toll of both on Tina and Harris who was trying his best to convince her she was truly an amazing woman!
Loved the pace, the prose and the emotion! Great read.
