BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
Players gotta play.
Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything.
So does doubt.
Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn’t true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can’t help but be tormented with the endless what-if’s that have taken over our lives.
Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo’s entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened… and my past?
It’s coming back to haunt me.
To haunt us.
Romeo says we’re in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk.
Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?
I will surely miss this couple. Romeo and Rimmel’s relationship is the kind you wish you have with someone. My reading was actually done in parts– by part swooning and part sobbing because of envy.
First of all, I feel the need to say this. I am so so picky when it comes to NA books. Half of the NA books that I read this month just pissed me off and made me swear off anything NA or college romance on my TBR. But this series totally caught my attention and made me stay until the end.
Second, I need to get this out of my system: Who IS THAT GUY ON THE COVER BECAUSE OH MY GOD I’M TOTALLY CRUSHING ON HIM. That face with Romeo’s attitude is just… I’M DEAD. Rimmel is so lucky I don’t know if I should be happy for her or be jealous.
Third, and this is the review: I’m glad that this is more than just a cheesy love story. If you’ll ask me, this is like the college version of Rock Chick by KA because of the laughs, the adorable yet fierce heroine and the mega hot Alpha love interest. And of course because of the suspense. There was a lot of secrets that was thrown my way that I did not see coming. I was hurt for Rimmel and Romeo. But I cannot deny that it added a flare to the series.
I love how flawed every characters are in here and instead of being turned off I just loved them even more. Romeo is just the PERFECT book boyfriend ever. I WISH THIS GUY IS REAL (and that he’s mine) because I swear, the world will be a better place if there’s a lot of Romeo around. Rimmel grew. I didn’t like her clumsy self before because, well, I just don’t. Its great watching her finally taking her claws out because its about time!
I am so so happy that I finally read books by Cambria, I’m glad I discovered her because I just love her writing so much and I can’t wait to check out her other books.
Lastly, I CANNOT WAIT FOR BRAEDEN’S book. The national BFFL of the book world. I have a theory when it comes to her heroine (I’m still hoping its me) and I am freaking excited. Its time to accept the fact that Romeo is taken and its time to move on…… to Braeden.
Do I recommend this series? You bet your butt I do. Reading Romeo and Rimmel’s relationship was exciting. You will swoon, you will hurt but it will surely bring a smile to your face. Romeo and Rimmel will surely be a favorite for a very long time!
