It’s like a war in my mind. Want her. Hate her. Want her. My dick and my brain can’t agree. I don’t hate her, not really. I just hate the fact that she looks at me like I’m a creature from the deep that somehow washed up at her feet.
“I’m so fucking serious, Mac. I know I’m a joke to you. I know you can’t stand me, and it’s real fucking inconvenient for you that your body disagrees with you on that one … But I like you, Mac. I’ve wanted you since the day I saw you, but then I don’t know. It changed over time from just wanting to fuck you. Getting to be friends, pretending to be together…you’re in my fucking head all the time.”
“You and Mackenzie both have the same problem. Instead of just telling each other the truth, how you feel, you keep trying to push the person toward what you think will make them happy. It’s painful to watch.”
“What was your wish, Waylon?”
“To hear you say you need me. Not just want, need. That you hate the idea of me with anyone else, the same way I do.”
“You fit in my world, Mac. Anywhere you don’t or don’t feel like you fit, I’ll make room.”
This could have been a good college book. Could have been...
This book has all I hate about HS / college romances. Miscommunication, tons of OP drama, and too much f*ing talking!!
Waylon is your typical fuckboy, having crush on our heroine Mackanzie, but she's taken and hates him. When he finds out she broke up with her BF, instead of chasing her, he plays some kind of game I didn't get. Here the Fake dating trope came up, but it wasn't making any sense.
The miscommunication together with many vain discussions frustrated me. On top of it, the book isn't very safe. Obviously the author thinks only sex is cheating, so both MCs have OP kissing them, touching them, and they both consider sleeping with someone else. I personally hate the "limp dick" for everyone except the heroine cliché. Makes you feel like the guy would actually sleep with someone else if he could, and his mind has no saying in it.
There is pretty cute grovel towards the end, so I changed the rating to 2 stars only because of that.
If it actually contained some real drama except the OP one, it could have been a nice book.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
