Description from Goodreads:
What happens when two people who don’t believe in love, happen to fall madly into the most beautiful relationship they could ever imagine? A train wreck.
When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers clear across country to Garrison University, the last thing she’s looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what, gorgeous, Cruise Elton offers.
Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion that never lasts, and Cruise couldn’t agree more—but something deep inside her wants him all for herself. So, Kendall devises a seat of the pants plan to “play the player” and proposes that Cruise tutor her in becoming a female version of himself, Garrison University’s own playboy.
Real feelings begin to emerge, and neither Kendall nor Cruise know how to classify them. Everything they once thought they knew is redefined as they discover, in one another, Someone to Love.
When I started reading Someone To Love, I was expecting a lighthearted, fun contemporary romance that I would havea great time reading. Also, one that wouldn't spend a bunch of time sitting on my TBR pile, because goodness knows it gets bigger everyday, and adding books I don't want to read would just be silly. So naturally, I was super excited to get into this book and see if I got what I was expecting.
And I did! I did I did I did.
This book was so cute, and funny, and I flew through it so fast. I did have to put it aside for a small amount of time, but then when I went back to it, I got taken away yet again by the story and characters that I was enjoying so much.
Kendall: Kendall was a nice character. The book alternated between her and Cruise's POVs, and when that happens I usually sit around wishing I was on the guy's POV again, but Kendall held her own. She was funny and cute, but not a complete idiot. She was just young, and that was so fun to watch, as she went through so many new experiences.
Cruise: Cruise is a nice boy in disguise. And I love him so much. He's really a big sweetheart who pretended to be a bad boy after...well, I'd say his heart got broken, but it didn't, not really. More like, after he THOUGHT his heart was broken. Underneath it all, though, he's nice and caring and I loved his character and reading from his POV and AHH, he was so great.
Plot. So, this book wasn't exactly shocking. But then again, it IS a lighthearted NA contemporary romance, so you go into it expecting certain things, and it's hard to be surprised when all of those things happened. Nevertheless, it was amusing and cute to watch the events unfold for Cruise and Kenny.
Swoon. CRUISE. Ohhhhh, how can one NOT swoon for Cruise? I even love his name. And he and Kenny together? Awwww, man. The best.
The ending. As I said when I was talking about plot, we all knew how it was going to end, if we're being honest. But I'm glad for that, because I would have HATED if the story ended any other way for these characters I heart so much.
Overall, this book was so good! It held my attention and was fun to read. I love the characters, and their story is so sweet. I'm certainly interested to check out more of Addison Moore's writing now. She does it so well!
