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.
I LOVE this book.
No, it’s not an exaggeration I want to draw pink fluffy hearts around this book and keep it forever. I need this book to come to hard copy so I can add it to my collection of books I will keep until the world ends during the next zombie apocalypse.
Addison Moore outdid herself with Someone to Love. Kendall and Cruise might very well be my two favorite characters ever and that’s saying something since I read way more than the healthy amount of books. I knew from the second Kendall met Cruise at the frat party while she was waiting for Pennington, that sparks would fly.
They have the kind of chemistry that literally jumps off the page and into your heart. You want to root for them and you want to slap the characters that try to get in their way. From the minute Kendall or Kenny, as Cruise affectionately likes to call her, met his gaze, Moore had me transfixed.
Her writing is real and edgy and my god funny. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed out loud while I was reading this book. The chemistry between these two characters combined with their snarky behavior and sweet moments had my emotions all over the place. Moore does an amazing job of painting a picture and showing the reader how these two feel about each other.
The words and descriptions she uses and how she lets us see what’s going on in their head only served to make me that much more attached to the story. I literally could not put it down. There was a nice round of minor characters, but I really enjoyed how most of the focus stayed on Cruise and Kendall.
The way their relationship developed was great too. I loved seeing them vying for footing in the whole, I’m going to be the female version of Cruises manwhore-ness. Epic. It really does not get better than this. The whole premise for this story was great. It was refreshing and not like every other romance novel.
I don’t want to give too much away because this is a definite must read and me telling you about the sexy or funny parts would in no way be as awesome as reading them. I will say that I loved everything about this book, well except maybe the nickname ‘Kenny’ because it kept making me think Cruise was talking to a guy even though I knew he wasn’t haha. But even so it grows on you.
If contemporary romance is your thing Someone to Love is definitely for you!
