Summary Because of You Because of You #1

At least Nicole Harmon certainly doesWhen the surviving son Derek Noble sees an unsavory opportunity for revenge in the form of a heated one night stand he decides to take it It is intended to be an unkind but relatively uneventful interlude but turns into the catalyst that unknowingly casts Derek and Nikki into the shadow of their parents’ sordid pastWhat begins as a hateful game of revenge s. Okay I finished this one in record time I couldn t seem to put it downLet me first say I really loved this story The characters were very real not the generic fake stereotypical characters like you get in a lot of these books I really liked Nikki I could totally relate to her I lovedhated Derek depending on the chapter Alex was surprisingly one of my favorite story dads ever because he wasn t too far to one side or the other the perfect parent or the screw up parent he was right in the middle I just finished it everything is fresh so I have a lot to say ApologiesWhere to begin Well I suppose it makes sense to begin at the beginning The prologue is a little lengthywordy and full of lots of very relevant to the story history about the main characters mother and the main male character s father I was eager to get into the actual story and felt almost bogged down I am SO GLAD that I kept reading though If you start this book and feel bored in the beginning KEEP GOING Once it gets going it doesn t drag like thatI got really swept up in this love story At first I didn t like Derek at all and even though I knew from the description that he would not be evil forever I found it hard to believe Honestly I guess it s a testament to how well the story is written that like Nikki I wasn t altogether sure when I stopped hating Derek and started loving him but it definitely happened somewhere along the line There were a couple of sex scenes like for real I didn t see it coming but then I was all like But I totally liked it Boy do these these two have some chemistryAnd not just physically I m not one to regularly cry when I read books but this one it definitely made me shed a couple of tears Masochistically I loved every second of it because I love when I connect withinvest in characters like that Also I was reading at night time so I didn t have to worry about mascara smears or anything Now I personally loved this story I was surprised by how much I loved it given that it s a debut novel and it was only 399 there are some real stinkers out there but this was a really good story and I m very glad to have read it It s unexpected and there were definitely a couple of surprises I was absolutely CONVINCED of how something was going to turn out without spoiling and then I was totally wrong That happened to me twice in the course of this book But I loved it Part of me really really wanted me to be right but when I had finished the whole book I was completely happy with everything I would like to see a seuel to this book Seuel or no seuel I will definitely be keeping an eye out for from this author

Because of You Because of You #1

Oon evolves into something they never expected and a love neither of them ever wanted With the fragments of Derek and Nikki’s parents and their own tumultuous past hanging over their heads the second generation of star crossed lovers begin a love story all of their own This edition has a different ending there is no longer an epilogueRecommended 18 for some sexual content and mature situations. I thought this one started out a little bit slow with the backstory but I also understood why the backstory was all told mostly at once too This story was Nikki s generation s story not her mother s and I have no problem with one slow chapter I really loved Nikki I don t usually like first person stories actually because it can be limiting but in this story I didn t feel like it was at all I liked that the cast of characters was limited but the characters that were there got fleshed out I appreciated that Nikki was a loner without a lot of friends probably because I only had a couple good friends when I was in high school too I didn t have a ton of actual friends just people you see at parties or whatever but I thought that was nice I also liked that she was an imperfect character who made mistakes No special snowflakes here Derek I pictured Derek as Riggins from Friday Night LightsI think it was the hair lolNow I see a couple people didn t like Derek but I did Not right away At first he was a total jerk but he was supposed to be it said he was a jerk I like when I m shown instead of told that someone is bad A book I read last month supposedly featured a bad boy and he wouldn t even say hell or do anything remotely bad but he had tattoos and a shaved head so he s bad Please No Derek is a bad boy but not like he s trying too hard that s just how he is He was alpha and I really liked the sex scenes between them That feels weird to say lol but I liked the sex scenes in this better than half the erotica I ve read Anyway I won t give away any spoilers but I really enjoyed watching their story unfold At the scene at the park my heart got a little melty because I saw Derek growing as a character I also liked that he liked her before she liked him Too many boy crazy females and I liked that Nikki wasn t like that I like how it didn t even occur to her that he wanted to be than friends and she was kind of oblivious I liked the way the story developed how stress and everything weighed on their relationship much realistic portrayal than a lot of other stories I also liked the ending although I would definitely read a seuel Overall this is a favorite

    Once again I find myself in the unenviable position of being one of the only reviewers of this book who didn't like it I'm confused by the high rating but since there haven't been many ratings at all yet I'm certain its overall score will take a nosedive once a few savvy readers give it a perusal and perhaps f

    Soooo Let's get the bad out of the way firstThe narrative just trundled on randomly for a good part of the book telling us about scenes rather than letting us actually read the scenes themselves I recently read another book that did this and it really removes me from the book emotionally However Nikki had a frank engaging voice so it wasn't too terrible But I would have preferred active engagement in the storyI really enjoyed th
